Hello! Happy New Year! Moving away from the New Year ... holiday, I’ll try to tell you about a convenient device for organizing stable WiFi coverage where you need it, and, of course, there is mobile communication. A vacation trip to a country house or to a forest recreation center, in modern realities, is no longer possible without the Internet. It just so happened that even while in the forest, I want to congratulate my relatives on the holiday through video communication, as well as share photos. As you understand, I tested the modem in the conditions of poor reception of communication, where it is hardly 3G and sure, in the conditions of 4G LTE.

Packing and packaging
Comes in a box with wood coloring
Well the box says we are dealing with WiFi
Well, 4G LTE
There is a sticker with a model on the side of the box
We are opened by packaging, instructions in CHINESE and a charging cable
This is all good under the spoiler to reduce the review.
And inside the seal is the router modem itself in a bag
Let's move on to the modem itself
The modem is made of white plastic and has a display area framed by black glossy plastics.
The display is conditional, because in fact there are only status LEDs
From the right side there are 2 buttons on / off and quick connect WPS
From above nothing
Below there is a groove in order to pick up the cover and open the modem
And on the left there is a microUSB connector to charge the device and another hole for installing the lace
4GLTE written on the back of the cover
We are going further. open the lid
Battery claimed at 2400mAh
For lovers of measuring batteries
Here's what's under the battery
There is a slot for a full sim card
We can also see a slot for a microSD card and a reset button
Nothing interesting on the other hand
For completeness, measure the modem itself
But for some reason, weighed the device with akk and ak separately
Let's go to operation
The modem turns on by long pressing the power button
The battery icon turns red when the router boots up, turns blue, then turns purple when it is connected to the network
On the display we see 4 icons: cellular, battery, connected devices, WiFi status
Wifi light blinks when network is in use
WiFi is easy, connect, enter the password 1234567890
To configure the router, connect to the address 192.168.100.1
Settings are commonplace
There is a choice of preferred networks. I made speed measurements in all of them below.
You can see who is online on Mac addresses
Configure network and dialers yes APN
You can look at the statistics
Well, there is help
In the measurements of our local MEGAFON, which supposedly knows how to 4G
This speed is confirmed by measurements from mobile devices.
Allows you to watch vidosiki from YouTube in 1920 * 1080
And here are the WiFi level measurements compared to mi Router PRO
Connect to wifi
I'm leaving the router
3 m from the router
20 m from the router
45 m from the router
This is how he moved away from home
In general, it is possible to use the router not as WiFi, but as a USB router
We insert into USB in the PC under Windows 10
Drive is detected
After each launch, there is a preload of Po (not from the Internet)
That's the software itself, everything is trivial and the settings are few, like standard programms from OPSOS.
The only caveat is that the modem needs to be switched from WiFi mode to USB mode
And also if you insert a microSd card, you can use the device as a USB flash drive
Well, copy speed
Now let's see what's inside.
So to speak, get to Qualcom
Dismantling under the spoiler, so as not to clutter
The modem router has a very good receptionconnection, the village allowed to be online, although there is a bad reception. Internet speeds are largely due to data from the local OPSOS, therefore, so to speak, what they are rich in and happy with.
The router can support up to 10 connected devices and have a connection speed of up to 150 mbps
By the way, the battery of the router is enough for about 10 hours
And during charging 2600 mAh flowed into it
At the reception limit, the speed drops very much at 45 meters, it is barely barely updated ... Well, this is not an "adult" router.
For the money, a great device. But I can’t tell you about the TTL change wire to circumvent OPSOS restrictions. Those times have passed, thank God, when I sewed modems, now thank God is not required. Found the right tariff.
But by disassembling, we see what kind of hardware, so if you only look for third-party firmware, I do not think that the manufacturer of the subject will update it.
I use this modem in the village.
It is convenient to take it when traveling to nature, and it is also easy to place it at a point of less or less constant reception of communications and distribute WiFi to other devices.
That's all! If you have any questions, ask in the comments.
