Netgear Nighthawk M1- Best Mobile Router for Travel

Not all mobile devices are equipped with a SIM card. However, you have to know the latest Netgear Nighthawk M1 with high speed via LTE, the most important is that it’s an LTE advanced Pro router with SIM card slot and Ethernet port. The Nighthawk M1 could achieve download speed up to 1Gigabit, which is almost in the range of the 5G speed.  

 

 

Nighthawk M1 from Netgear is known for fleet router for mobile use, can it also be used at home or office. The 4G SIM router has a battery for mobile operation and can be loaded in every suitcase and almost every handbag. It simply gets his network from the air via the LTE wireless networks and transfers data for up to 20 devices. Thus, it should be the ideal companion for every trip.

 

 

 

 

 

Netgear introduced the Nighthawk M1 last year at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.  The Australian carrier Telstra first introduced the Nighthawk router to its product range and then US carrier ATT followed. A year later, the device is finally available for users in Europe. Fortunately, the Netgear M1 comes out in Europe without a provider branding, so it’s unlocked can be operated in any network. In the US, the Nighthawk mobile router is limited to AT&T's network while the Nighthawk router is limited to Telstra in Australia. The built-in modem supports the LTE Cat.16 and achieves maximum speeds of 1 gigabit per second (Gbps) in the download, at least in theory because only a few areas in Europe give such transmission rates. In addition, the transfer to mobile devices is possible via WLAN-ac or the built-LAN connection. The Netgear Nighthawk M1 always ensures fast Internet everywhere.

 

 

 

Anyone surfing through LTE should always keep an eye on current consumption so as not to exceed the high-speed volume. The Nighthawk M1 succeeds on a built-2.4-inch display. At the side of it are the status indicator for the current battery level and the strength of the network. If the latter is too low, the Netgear M1 will accept a maximum of two TS-9 antennas for reception. The user can control or setup the mobile 4G router through web page or Netgear Mobile APP. The Netgear Mobile app can be used to make settings and even set up a parental control. The built-in battery is generously sized with 5040 mAh and can keep continuous working for a day and a night according to the manufacturer.

 

 

 

Netgear Nighthawk M1: Price and Availability

 

Since Telstra and ATT had already presented the product to the public for a long time, here now there are many unlocked Nighthawk M1 available in the market. The unlocked Nighthawk M1 is available on online store www.4gltemall.com with a price of around 459.00USD with free 4G MIMO Antenna with two TS-9 connectors. For the operation, it then still needs a micro-SIM card and a corresponding tariff. If you would take the Nighthawk M1 for travel, you’d better get an unlocked Nighthawk M1 router and get a valid SIM card from the network provider in the destination to work with the M1 router. But you will never get an unlocked Nighthawk M1 from the carriers in the destination country.

TP-Link Archer MR400 AC1350 4G LTE Router Review

Sometimes 3G/4G networks will broadcast a better connection than those from the ADSL network. TP-Link presents the new Archer router MR400, which is upgrading from the predecessor Archer MR200 AC750  Router, when ADSL access is not possible at home or on the move, the TP-Link Archer MR400 Router can take over to distribute the connection of 3G/4G mobile networks via WiFi.

 

 

With the MR400 Router, there is an Ethernet cable packed that can be used to wired one to four PCs via the dedicated ports. The 4G LTE router has a power button, reset or access to WPS for a fast connection and a button that allows to enable or disable the Wifi connection only. The location of the SIM card is easily accessible. Two adapters for Micro-SIM or Nano-SIM are provided; one click shows that everything is well engaged.

 

 

The MR400 Archer is light and rather pleasant at the design level. However, the black body seems to be a little textured and not glossy. It acts like a dust magnet and even with clean hands fingerprints appear from the first manipulation.    

 

 

 

Interface connection

Once the SIM inserted and the router MR400 connected to the wireless network, the LEDs give the status on the connection of the device and the availability of the wifi. They are however quite discreet. The manual prompts you to first connect to the wireless network whose name (SSID) and password are listed under the router. It is then necessary to access the interface of the router via an internet browser by entering the IP address 192.168.0.1 or tplinkmodem.net. Here it is possible to enter the default identifiers (admin / admin) to enter the interface. The password can be changed to the one per user’s preference. To configure from a smartphone or tablet is more easily, TP-Link also offers applications for iOS (download from Apple store)or Android(Download from Google Play).

 

 

  

Features and connection

A small assistant helps the user to configure the router in 3 simple steps, it was enough to leave the information by default. Before that, you have to enter the PIN code of the SIM card. The interface indicates the path to follow to access it. Once the connection is tested and the wizard finished, we connect to the interface.

 

 

It is well designed and easy to handle if you speak English. The "Basic" tab contains a graphic representation of the network and the devices connected to the routers, the possibility of modifying the Wifi parameters, activating a guest network or a parental control function. The "Advanced" tab contains everything that can be expected from a conventional router: NAT rules, security settings, bandwidth control to avoid eating too quickly his package or even what to connect to a VPN. An SMS section allows to send text messages without leaving the interface, it worked without difficulty.  

 

The bandwidth test was very convincing with an excellent bit rate that makes us forget that we are connecting to a mobile network and not to ADSL. Of course, the quality of connection depends on the presence of 3G or 4G antennas from the operator, but the result is more fluid than using the modem of the smartphone.

 

 

Below are the general specs for TP-link Archer MR400:  

  • 4G LTE maximum network speed of 150 Mbit/s
  • 4G LTE maximum speed per network 50 Mbit/s
  • 4G: FDD-LTE Cat4 (800/900/1800/2100/2600MHz)

Five Factors to Consider Before Buying a Huawei LTE WiFi Router

Huawei had provided several LTE WiFi Routers to the network carriers worldwide, and they are very popular in the consumers based on the good performance and good price. However, there are so many models of Huawei LTE Routers, how to select and buy a suitable Huawei LTE Router, many consumers feel confused. As the professional supplier of Huawei wireless routers, we think there are five factors to consider before buying a Huawei LTE WiFi Router.

 

Budget Price

Firstly, you must have a budget for buying a huawei LTE Router. Currently, the Huawei LTE routers price range is between 100.00USD to 400.00USD. There are many LTE router models with support of different LTE categories, such as LTE Cat.3, Cat.4, Cat.6 or even Cat.11. They support different LTE download & upload speed. The higher speed supported, the higher of the router price. So you’d better select a Huawei wireless router based on your budget price.

 

 

Location to use

Secondly, the location (where you'll use the router) is also important. If you use the Huawei LTE Router at home or workplace, in a car, bus, boat, farm, train or basement, they have different requirements for the Huawei router. This can decide you would like a huawei indoor router or outdoors router. If you place the Huawei router during a tiny workplace and reception for the tiny house, an enclosed router would be enough, however if you place the Huawei router during a massive farm or basement, an outdoor LTE router may be suitable. Or course, the indoor router might also be enough IN a basement as long as a high-gain 4G outdoor antenna is connected with the huawei router. In this casethe , the connectors for outdoor antenna may be necessary when you select the Huawei router.

 

 

Network Compatibility

Thirdly, as a Huawei router with SIM card slot, you must make sure the Huawei router is compatible with your network provider’s SIM card. You must know which frequency bands of your network provider’s LTE networks. And then check whether the selected Huawei LTE WiFi router would support the network provider’s LTE frequency bands. For example, the Huawei B618s-22d Router supports LTE Band 1/3/7/8/20/38. There will be no problem if using the Huawei B525s-23a router with Orange or Vodafone in Europe, the but if you use it in USA with AT&T or T-mobile, it would not work well because it doesn’t support LTE band 2/4/5/17 for AT&T and band 2/4/12 for T-mobile. Then you would select another Huawei Router B890-66 to work with AT&T and T-mobile. In summary, you must make sure the selected Huawei 4G Router would support at least one of the LTE frequency bands deployed by your network provider and even exactly the supported frequency bands are deployed at your location. For example, you want to buy a Huawei LTE router for your network provider on band 28, then Huawei E5186 LTE router seems good. But Huawei E5186 has two variant models: E5186s-22a and E5186s-61a. After checking they supported LTE frequency bands, then the Huawei E5186s-61a is the right one because it supports LTE band 28 (700MHz).

 

 

Interfaces Requirements

Finally, you must make sure the Huawei router would meet all your devices requirements, i.e how many devices would connect to the Huawei 4G Router via WiFi and how many would connect via Ethernet port. Usually, Huawei LTE WiFi router would have 2 or 4 Ethernet ports. If your target router can’t meet your requirements, you may buy more routers to fulfill or use other methods to let the device to connect via WiFi. Most of the Huawei LTE Router would support maximum up to 32 users and the latest Huawei B618 LTE router supports up to 62 users, which are enough for most cases. If your devices need many Ethernet port, you can use switches to solve this problem.

 

It’s necessary for you consider the 5 factors before buying a suitable Huawei LTE router. These factors are common requirements, but if you have other requirements for the Huawei wireless router, such as VoLTE, VoIP, DDNS, VPN or other functions, you need check the detail specs of the Huawei LTE Routers and then decide which one to choose.
