To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I bought this item very recently to replace my old Huawei mifi router/dongle.
Sadly, I cannot recommend this unit at all so far. While it is a well-presented unit, looks are not the necessity... a fast-stable signal is, especially for this price!
So far, I have had very poor and disappointing, speeds despite 'doing the rounds' of the whole house trying to find a better signal spot. It is appropriate to add that I have also used twin TS9 areal which, though they are clearly increasing the signal, it is so little as to make no valuable difference.
As an example of an initial basic check, a well-known Broadband Speed Checker was used on the old then the new units. The difference was small with the slowest speed being for the M2 which showed 0.2mbs!
I cannot comment on the battery life as I have only had the unit for short while. The build quality seems excellent.
Put basically, this is a very expensive unit and for this amount of money, and being dual band etc, I expected a much better performance as compared to the old unit.
Further checking will follow but sadly I think it may have to be returned as it is possible that I have been unlucky and have a faulty unit.
I've used this product for a few months now as a temporary internet source in a new build flat. The hardwire ethernet works fine and does the job very well. On the other hand, the WiFi is unreliable. When the device has been on for a long time, the WiFi becomes incredibly weak and any device will have difficulty connecting or loading anything. When trying to use the device's interface during the weak WiFi periods; it is very unresponsive and slow which makes it very hard to reset. The only way to reset it is to remove the battery and unplug the power cables. Due to this very clunky reason, it was not worth the full price.
Las características osn muy poco "Pro". Su Firware es muy cerrado (no admite ni tan siquera poderte conectar por Telnet). No puedes anclar IP's concretas a ciertos dispositivos. Vaya, que es demasiado caserito para el precio que tiene.
Das WLAN ist eher schwach, aber Dual Band gleichzeitig (kann nicht jeder). Empfangsstärke LTE sehr gut, meist ein kleinwenig besser als am Handy. Aber Unterschied ist kein Drama. Am meisten stört das schwachsinnige Sensor-Fläche zum Einschalten... Das nervt, weil immer wieder in der Tasche das Ding angeht. Der neue 5G Router wird wieder einen Schalter haben... Wohl nicht Einzefall das Problem... TS9 Antenneneingang: VIele verschiedene Antennen probiert, Wirkung eher begrenzt...
I bought the device just one month ago and now it stopped working. It's apparently stuck at three of the four boot steps and the display is flashing on and off continuously. The device has been flashed with the latest firmware and is also factory reset, but it doesn't help. I also removed the battery, still no help.
I remember I had to throw another Netgear router years ago. It was continuously writing its log entries to flash memory and eventually it broke after just a little more than one year of usage. It was just out of warranty. Now this... I'll never again buy another Netgear product!
Update: I called Amazon support and they deflected me to Netgear support. Netgear replaced the device at no additional costs. The new device is working for about two weeks now without any flaws. Let's see for how much longer this time.
Da possessore del vecchio modello mi aspettavo che migliorasse un po' di più. Buona la batteria, ben gradito il touch, ma mi sono trovato con l'impossibilità di collegare le telecamere arlo, voce scomparsa dopo un aggiornamento firmware, ed alcune operazioni che eseguivo con il vecchio modello ( forse un po' particolari, ma mi connettevo ad un PLC connesso su rete cablata, tramite Wi-Fi) ora non sono più possibili, vero che sono usi particolari, ma per il prezzo a cui è venduto dovrebbe essere il TOP. In definitiva non va male, ma nel mio caso mi sono tenuto il vecchio rendendo questo.
Pour moi 2 problemes. 1 Manque de stabilite comparer a un routeur "fixe" 2 Des sauts de ping inexplicable. Le tout relier a des yagis en mimo Pour le prix je ne comprends pas, ensuite le 2gbps c'est joli sur le papier mais en vrai on n'est pas pret de pouvoir l'exploiter au max. Pour ma part je l'ai pris en occasion pour le teste mais je le renvoi de ce pas.
