How to Update Huawei E5786s-32a Firmware

This article describes how to upgrade the Huawei E5786s-32a firmware to 21.297.03.00.309 firmware version. This update activates the Wi-Fi Extender function that is not implemented in the firmware of all E5786 routers, although it is mentioned in the technical specifications.   The Wi-Fi Extender function allows the Huawei E5786 router to switch from the 4G network to a WiFi network available around so that you can access the WiFi network, in order to save your Data plan. If the WiFi signal is lost, the router switches automatically to the data network.

Huawei E5787 4G LTE Mobile Hotspot

A new router successor to Huawei MiFi E5786 Hotspot has appeared on the market in early summer last summer, it is the Huawei E5787, also named Huawei E5787 Mobile WiFi Touch.

 

Huawei E5787

 

The Huawei E5787 Mobile WiFi Touch is a 4G+ category 6 router, allowing a download speed of 300 Mbps and a download speed of 50 Mbps. Always broadcasting WiFi 802.11ac, it broadcasts on the 2.4 GHz and 5 Ghz frequencies. It is of course backwards compatible with 2G and 3G and supports 802.11 b/g/n in addition to ac.

There are 2 main novelties for this E5787 compared to its predecessor Huawei E5786.  

  1. A large 2.4-inch screen is now in front, but most importantly, it is tactile and gives access to operating and configuration menus. This functionality gives it the nickname of WiFi touch. The screen of Huawei E5786 can only show the connection status and data consumption, if users want to operate the setting for WIFI and password, they have to log in the web page to setup.

 

  1. Unlike the E5786, the battery of Huawei E5787 is removable. This 3000mAh battery gives 12 hours of autonomy to this router. The battery of E5786 can’t be removed.

For the rest of the characteristics, we can find more features as below:

1. Capacity of 10 simultaneous Wifi users.

2. Possibility to connect a PC via the micro-USB port.

3. The two TS-9 connectors for an external antenna.

4. With nano HPM Cortex A9 processor, it supported 4G bands are:

* LTE FDD: 1/3/5/7/8/20 (800/850/900/1800/2100/2600MHz) Note: It still lacks the 700 MHz (B28).

* LTE TDD: 38/40/41 (2300/2500/2600MHz)

5. Dimensions of 109 x 58 x 7.5mm, therefore significantly thinner than its predecessor E5786. And the weight of 155g, it’s easy to take away when on the go. 6. One micro SD card slot, connected users could share files in the SD card plugged in.

We can find the metallic border that surrounds the case, which is the high-end smartphone way. Moreover, the Huawei E5787 router is available in different colors, such as Black, White, and Silver. You will have to wait a little to acquire it, because it is available only in rare countries, but no worries, you can get unlocked Huawei E5787 from www.4gltemall.com. You don’t need worry about the compatibility because it supports many LTE 4G bands. We will take the test for Huawei Mobile WiFi Touch E5787 in near future.

Huawei B5328 4 X 4 MIMO LTE Router News

Released in at the beginning of 2016, Huawei B5328 LTE Router is only distributed to few telecom operators who wish to offer it to their customers with a 4G offer till now. As we know, it’s now available only for the network provider Mobilis in Algeria, and other carriers such as China Mobile, Vodafone are trying to test their network with the new 4 X 4 Mimo technology.

GCT GDM7243Q Semiconductor GCT GDM7243Q chipset is often used on 2X2 MIMO for telecom, which has few advantages, but its availability makes it possible to use 4X4 MIMO in near future.

 

Huawei B5328 interfaces

 

In this version Huawei B5328-155, it has a single Gigabit Ethernet port and the WiFi band is only on 2.4 GHz, which seems not enough for a high-end router, and the 4 x 4 mimo technology is only highlights. After the Algerian Internet users who have the possibility to use this B5328 router via the operator MOBILIS, Vodafone also carries out tests in 4X4 MIMO on its 4G network. And it seems that the operators in German, Switzerland and Austria are in discussions with Huawei.

 

Huawei B5328 accessories

Here now, the latest 4G LTE Router is Huawei E5186, which is LTE Category 6(Rel 12). After Huawei presents the B5328 LTE CPE, we would expect more similar 4G LTE Routers available in near future. Of course, the routers would do their best performance after the network carriers upgraded their networks.
