Huawei E5786  


The Chinese manufacturer Huawei introduced the world's first MiFi router E5786 for LTE-Advanced at the Mobile World Congress in February 2014. The E5786 should be the first mobile router with support for LTE CAT6. But the rival ZTE has a similar device called “ZTE Flare”. This seems at higher quality than the counterpart of Huawei.    

LTE-Advanced Router  

As already indicated, Huawei E5786 is the first LTE-Advanced equipment with Category 6(CAT6). The current LTE networks comply with category 3 and 4 (CAT 3/4), which take 100-150 Mbit/s for download speed, but with Cat.6, the speed of 300 MBit/s could be achieved for download, practically doubling the current level. However, these data rates will initially only be available in selected cities and probably seldom achieved in practice.



Portable CAT6 Wi-Fi router  

The Mini-Router supports LTE to almost all popular bands. For example, 800, 1800, 2100 and 2600 MHz. Of course, it dominated Carrier aggregation at cat.6 and can thus achieve up to 300 Mbits downlink and 50 MBit upload rate. Besides the supported earlier LTE categories, it supports as well as 3G and 2G wireless standards. The Huawei E5786 sets chip on Huawei Hisilicon with a HPM Cortex 9 processor while ZTE flare has a modern block Qualcomm Gobi 9 × 30 chipset in ultrathin 20nm technology.



Users can set up a Wi-Fi hotspot for up to 10 other terminals to log in, and over all popular wireless standards (802.11 a/b/g/n/ac). Data can be exchanged internally with up to 300 Mbit/s via WLAN AC. The operation runs in the dual-band, so either to 2.4 or 5 GHz.    



Negative falls on first, that the battery is not removable. The capacity is with 3000 mAh, practically high standard. This should make up 10 hours of online work or 500 hours standby. As usual, the Operation can be carried out via the browser. Per QR codes, which can be displayed optionally on the display let you integrate quickly into smartphones network, which considerably facilitates the establishment. In addition, Huawei has a special app that can monitor and configure your wireless network. The interface informs the used traffic and provides the wireless data rate represents a graphical trend. There are connections for external antennas and a Micro SD slot. The antenna format is TS-9 here.




The Germany Telekom has the identical model in the form of "Speedport II mini" as an OEM version. The original Huawei E5786 was available on the online trade store . If you like the unlocked original version Huawei E5786, welcome to have a check.  


Huawei Honor Cube WS831 Wireless 802.11ac Router

Recently, we tested several Huawei home routers. The powerful platforms and attractive price are interesting. However, the software can not always satisfy demanding users.


Huawei WS831 Wireless Router

In this article we look at the router Huawei Honor Cube WS831, which also has a second name “Honor Cube” in some sources.   This Honor Cube model has wired ports 100 Mbit/s (one WAN and two LAN), two wireless access points in the 2.4 and 5 GHz, and it supports the current protocol 802.11ac, and is equipped with a USB 2.0 port for connecting external storage devices.   In testing, we used the unlocated devices, so it was difficult to find even English letters on the box and in the instructions and in the web interface. Provided that this model is not on the manufacturer's website, and not even any documents, it is possible that we will miss some of the features of the device.

Packing router has an almost cubic shape and unusual celadon. No technical information on it, apparently, except for references to a faster processor, support for 802.11ac and company management utilities for mobile devices.

The package includes the router power supply 5.1 V 2.1 A flat Gigabit Ethernet patch cable, a brief description, a warranty card and, as a bonus, the calendar for this year.

  The body of the router is made of white glossy plastic. Its dimensions are 90 × 90 × 94 mm. The top cover is printed the name of the series - Honor. On the edge, the slit are passive ventilation. The second group of holes can be seen in the lower part of the housing.

On the front side is a button «Hi» with chrome rim and a built-in multi-color display, which probably used to connect wireless clients on technology WPS, and reset (with a long press). All connectors are assembled on the rear panel - input power supply, one port WAN, LAN port and two port USB 2.0. Turn the power of this model is not provided.

  The bottom of the selected gray matte is plastic. Based housing has two large rubber inserts that hold it firmly on a flat surface. But you can not fix this model on the wall. There is also a sticker with information about the device, where you can find the wireless network name by default, MAC- and IP-address, serial number and other data.   The main processor unit can be found labeled "5650". The network has information about the fact that he is a SoC HiSilicon SD5650H with a pair of ARM-cores running at 1 GHz. Given the absence of heat sinks on the chip, and the use of wired ports only at 100 Mbit/s, it is hard to believe in these characteristics. The RAM of the device is 128 MB, and has 16 MB of flash memory for firmware. The Fast Ethernet controller for network is built into the main processor.

The model is equipped with two radio blocks: Realtek RTL8192ER responsible for 802.11b/g/n 2.4GHz, and Realtek RTL8812AE for 802.11a/n/ac 5 GHz. Both chips use a configuration of two MIMO antennas that gives the maximum connection speed of 300Mbit/s and 876 Mbit/s, respectively. On the radio blocks, there are no radiators. Antennas are built-in in the model and are on opposite inner walls of the body.  


The Huawei Honor Cube Ws831 is a cool wireless router with high speed for download. So if you would like it, welcome to purchase from .

Technical Features

With 11 x 7 x 7 centimeters and 250 grams in weight, the A1 Internet box 4G/LTE E5180 is portable enough to be used as a mobile LTE router. The micro-SIM card comes in a slot on the bottom of the unit. In addition to the technical specifications, the design attracts the eyes. It is probably no exaggeration to say that Huawei E5180 is the currently most fashionable LTE router in the world.  




Mobile Internet

With the support LTE Category 4 and provided an appropriate collective as well as a developed network, Huawei E5180 Cube could achieve download speeds of up to 150 Mbit/s and 50 Mbit/s speeds for upload at 800, 1,800 and 2,600MHz. If no LTE network available, thanks to the support of DC-HSPA+, the E5180 Cube could reach download speed up to 42 Mbit/s. The only drawback that we could find in the router: It has incomprehensibly no connections or ports for external antennas. Therefore, one should keep a close eye on reception quality. If the signal is weak, you should move the location of the cube.  



Wireless LAN

Up to 32 devices in the house can be supplied with the A1 Internet box 4G/LTE E5180 via WLAN. The connection is elegantly solved: By pressing the blue backlit lid of the box, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n is activated. Huawei promises a wireless range of up to 250 meters with a possible maximum speed of 300 Mbit/s.  


At the same time, the cover also serves as a WPS button, with the click of a button easily and quickly WPS encryption is built (WPA and WPA2 are also supported). The A1 E5180 dominated UPnP (Universal Plug & Play) and is also protected by an integrated firewall.  


For wired Internet connections, the E5180 has only one Ethernet port, here you would already want multiple ports. On the back there are the RJ45 output, the RJ11 port for an analog phone or fax machine as well as the connection for the 12-volt power adapter.  


The Internet box 4G/LTE E5180 there are offered by A1 for new customers at no extra charge when booking an A1 mobile Internet tariff (S/M/L). If you want the unlocked version of Huawei E5180 A1 Internet box, you can check the online website . We provide international shipping with one year warranty.
