ZyXEL WAH7706 LTE Cat6 Hotspot Review
ZyXEL offers the cheap LTE-Advanced Cat6 Hotspot WAH7706 in January 2016. You can get the small portable LTE router with replaceable battery, which can reach up to 300 Mbit/s download speed. Up to 32 devices can be connected via the integrated WLAN ac simultaneously with an internet connection. The ZyXEL WAH7706 is in direct competition with other vendors such as Huawei, Netgear and Alcatel one touch. Today, we will have a look at what’s the key features of the new ZyXEL WAH7706 mobile hotspot. The ZyXEL WAH7706 LTE Hotspot is packed in a nondescript cardboard box. In addition to the router, a USB to microUSB cable can be found in the packaging, with which the battery can be recharged. There is also a good guide that contains all the instructions and information for controlling the WAH7706 and through many images is easy to understand. Unfortunately (but maybe only in my tester is the case) the instructions in English, and a power adapter is not included, so you need to use to an existing power supply with USB connector and the USB cable to charge the WAH7706 from PC. But it should not be a big problem because most users should always have at least one suitable power supply from their mobile phone at home. At first glance, the ZyXEL WAH7706 appears quite small and compact. At the sides, the device is flat, so the router is very well in hand. Overall, however, the design is very spectacular and the mirrored front is more disruptive than helpful, especially when it comes to read the small or low-light display on the front. There is the micro-USB port, so you can not connect an external LTE antenna. But you can remove and replace the rear battery, which is also not so necessarily common. The SIM card should be present in the MicroSIM format, but a nano-sim with adapter is also no problem.
