N Wireless Travel Router - MR3020

TP-LINK 3G Travel Router

Travel-sized Design and Mini USB Port

What make this router outstanding are its travel-sized design and Mini USB Port, which can be connected to a Laptop or Power Adapter to be used as a power supply. As long as you have your laptop, the TL-MR3020 can be powered and a wireless cloud is created that can be shared by iPads™, iTouches™, Android™ Phones, Kindles™ and the vast majority of other portable Wi-Fi enabled devices.

High Compatibility-Tested in Field

Compatibility is the most important aspect to consider when you’re selecting a 3G router. To ensure the best compatibility between our routers and the modem you would use with the router, TP-LINK has made certain that our 3G Routers are compatible with the ISPs in the regions in which they are sold. We have teams around the globe continually testing our Routers with newly emerged modems to ensure that end users can feel confident that their routers will operate flawlessly where they live and work.

One Button Security Setup

With One Button Security Setup, the TL-MR3020 travel router allows users to instantly setup their security simply by pressing the WPS button on the router and automatically establishing a WPA2 secure connection, which is more secure when compared with WEP encryptions. Not only is this faster and safer than normal security setups but more convenient in that users needn’t remember a password!

 IP QoS – Control Your Bandwidth

Bandwidth of mobile broadband is limited. With the router’s IP QoS function, the TL-MR3020 allows optimum utilization of bandwidth and offers bandwidth control over congestion, preventing bandwidth abuse. When sharing your mobile broadband with others, you can decide how the bandwidth is shared based on your requirements.

Easy to Use 3G travel Router

The TL-MR3020 travel router can be installed quickly and easily almost anywhere. All you need to do is insert the USB modem into the router, search for its wireless SSID on your computer and connect to it. Users can be online and surfing the internet in no time, with the user guide on provided CD, even novice users can easily set up their wireless internet connections.

The only thing missing from my 3G travel router is an ‘all you can eat’ data plan. I want to use my ZTE MF60 and Option XYFI travel routers for watching movies using my LOVEFILM account but the biggest 3g mobile broadband dataplan I could get was the 15Gb mobile data plan which can easily be used for media rich browsing on the go. I did discover this week that my one plan sim which provides all you can eat data when used in a smartphone worked in my Option XYFI travel router so I am using that for the time being and see what happens. This One Plan SIM card does not work in my ZTE MF60, neither does it work in my embedded 3G router at home which is still stuck with a 15Gb plan, so I also use my Option XYFI travel router at home and am tempted to plug it into a Zoom 4501 router.

I also recently saw an advertisement from a company called Giff Gaff who were offering a SIM card with unlimited Data but have not tried their service yet – but assume is is based upon the three mobile network because they have lots of MVNO partners.  I guess that as demand grows for unlimited data sims then the increased competition will give us more choice in the future.

ZyXEL Wireless N Travel Router

Designed with a portable form factor that easily fits into a pocket, a laptop case, or the palm of your hand, it’s the perfect way to bring a wireless connection with you whether in the office or on the road. Many ultra-portable devices like PDAs, tablets, handheld game consoles, and even some laptops no longer accept a wired connection, limiting their functionality in locations without wireless access. The ZyXEL MWR102 3G Travel Router combines a miniature router and wireless access point to create the perfect way to share high-speed wireless internet access in hotel rooms, conference rooms, or anywhere a wired broadband connection is available. The MWR102 doesn’t sacrifice performance in favor of its portability. 2.4GHz wireless technology allows 11n data transfer rates of up to 150Mbps while still remaining compatible with older 11b/g devices. Because power outlets are often in short supply while travelling, the MWR102 can be USB-powered to ensure convenient internet access anywhere. Setting up a secure wireless connection couldn’t be simpler. Each MWR102 ships with a different default SSID and encryption enabled by default. Just check the bottom of the MWR to find out the security key used by your router, or change it to one of your own choosing. To provide the highest data security possible, the MWR102 supports WEP, WPA, and WPA2 encryption. It also comes equipped with firewall features like NAT (Network Address Translation), VPN pass-through, and SPI (Stateful Packet Inspection) to prevent attacks from the internet.

We think the ZyXEL Travel Router is a great addition to the rapidly expanding 3G and 4G Travel Router marketplace.

Boost your Travel Router 3G Reception.

Many users of Travel Routers such as the ZTE MF60 and the new Option XYFI often ask about the availability of high gain 3G Antennas that they can use to help improve the signal reception of thei 3G Travel Router.

Many of these travel routers will have a TS9 connector or CRC9 connector and there are several 3G booster antennas with the TS9 or CRC9 Antenna Connector. Alternatively you can purchase a TS9 Adapter or CRC9 Adapter which will typically provide an SMA Female connection so that you can connect a wider choice of high gain external 3G Antenna.

So if you need to use your Travel Router in a location with a poor 3G network signal then you can use a 3G Antenna to help improve your signal reception. You can view a range of 3G antenna’s and TS9 and CRC9 adapters at the 3G Router Store where you can also purchase the latest Travel Routers including the ZTE MF60 and the Option XYFI, the worlds smallest WiFi Hotspot Travel Router.

I have been using my ZTE MF60 Travel Router for a couple of weeks now and have been impressed. Most of the time I am getting an average of 10Mbps download speeds with the highest speed of 11.78Mbps. The ZTE MF60 4G Travel Router is great on long car journey’s – my young son can connect using his iPOD and easily use you tube and other online content, whilst my wife watches Love Fiml streaming movies on the iPAD.

It keeps them both quiet and I can just switch off the radio and drive in peace and quiet for the 4 hour drive up north. It always seem uphill when you drive from London to Yorkshire up the A1, and then a bit downhill over the border into Lancashire. By the way – did you know that the M62 motorway at saddleworth moor (think Myra Hindley) is the highest motorway in England.

Becuase most of my travelling was along motorways and both Love Film and BBC iPlayer have pretyy good streaming buffers and fairly low bandwidth requirements there was no movie downtime.

The ZTE MF60 did not even require any intial configuration to get connected. I simply inserted my contract mobile broadband SIM card and after switching on (and then swicthing off and taking a photo of the WiFi password underneath the battery and replacing the battery and switching back on) I was able to connect my iPhone to the internet without any additional configuration. I configured the WiFi settings using the Safari web browser on my iPhone and have not had to go into the configuration pages since.

My brother in law has told me he has purchased one since he saw mine and he uses his in the car, at home and also his house in France when he stays there.

What more can I say, the ZTE MF60 is a simple to use, great value, super fast and future proofed 4G modem / Travel router and would recommend that you buy one.

The Option XYfi is the world’s smallest personal 3G wifi hotspot, concealed within the form factor of a USB 3G modem. The unit can be used either as a regular USB modem, or can optionally be used to provide wifi coverage to additional clients when connected to a PC, or can be used as a standalone wifi router without the need for a PC.

The Option XYfi also features a microSD slot the XYfi can be used as a portable storage device and media server.

Option XYFI

Always innovating, Option combines WLAN and WWAN in the ground breaking XYfi.

The XYfi is a new way of thinking USB. No drivers, no software, if you know how to surf the web you are connected. XYfi with one-of-a-kind Plug-and-Play anywhere operation will get you up-and-running networked and connected in moments.

It doesn’t even need a laptop! Plug it in to any USB port, a Battery Pack or ac-adapter and you have all you need for easy access to the Internet with its instant Hotspot.

For private use it’s a wireless 3G modem but when you need it the XYfi transforms into the world’s smallest WiFi + 3G router. The XYfi will connect all your WiFi enabled devices, get your music player, games machine, friends and family on to the Internet.

As a plus; behind the scenes the XYfi uses it built-in WiFi client to automatically switch between WiFi Hotspots and 3G giving you the best available connection.

Option XYFI Travel Router

The option XYfi does not include it’s own battery, but Option have provided a range of power accessories to enable you to create your own battery or mains powered Travel Router.
