Configuring the Huawei B593s-22 router

 

The configuration is simple. Insert the sim card, plug in the router and turn it on. If the PIN code of the SIM card is not 0000, you obviously need to set it in the web interface. For this, connect an RJ45 cable to the router and connect it to your PC. Using an Internet browser, go to address 192.168.1.1 or http: //homerouter.cpe. You normally access the interface of your router. The username and password are marked on the back of the device (admin / admin).

Huawei B618S-22D 4G LTE Cat11 WiFi Router

A brand new Huawei LTE router has been launched in Europe and is now available for purchase on www.4gltemall.com . This is Huawei B618s-22d. It is a rather remarkable product in LTE category 11! Yes, you may have read, it allows to reach 600Mbit/s for download and 50Mbit/s for upload theoretically. Of course, you will not be able to reach such bit rates immediately, but this augurs well for the importance that 4G (and later 5G) reception will take by the various wired networks in areas badly covered.

The Huawei B618s-22d router is in compact design and it resembles its predecessor Huawei E5180 LTE CPE. The dimensions are 9.5cm long, 20.8cm high and 9.5cm thick. Its weight is 700 grams. It supports the 4G+ category 11 on the bands: 1/3/7/8/20/38 (FDD 800/900/1800/2100/2600MHz, TDD 2600MHz). It is therefore almost entirely compatible with all frequencies in Europe and other areas in Asia. But it’s a pity that it does not support the frequency 700MHz(B28).

The proposed WIFI is a/b/g/n/ac on 2 bands (2.4Ghz and 5Ghz) and supports up to 64 connected devices. (Attention, theoretical data in laboratory, strongly dependent on wall thickness and other parameters.) At the LAN ports, there are 2 RJ45 gigabits and 1 LAN/WAN port. It is possible to connect an external antenna through the 2 TS9 ports.

 

If you want to buy the external 4G/LTE antenna for Huawei B618, we had tested two external antennas for indoor and outdoor use: Huawei B618 4G Router LTE Indoor External Antenna: http://www.4gltemall.com/4g-antenna-two-ts-9-connector.html

An RJ11 port allows you to connect a phone on it to make calls via the inserted SIM card (Provided you do not force the router only on the 4G so that it can switch to the other frequencies (3G) and your plan not only in data). The VOIP/SIP is available and configured in the web interface. A USB 2.0 port connects a hard drive or printer.

More advanced settings are available as integrated DDNS, integrated VPN client, SMS sending/receiving ... The SIM card must be in the MICRO SIM format. It has a multilingual interface that you manage from your computer to configure your network quickly and easily (DHCP, VOIP, FIREWALL, etc.) but is also compatible with the mobile application “Huawei Mobile WiFi” for a configuration via smartphone.  

 

It has an on/off button which is handy to turn it off when you do not use it. Also, a WPS button (to connect wifi easily) and 8 LEDs will let you know the intensity of your 4G reception, WIFI activity, LAN activity, power, etc.

This Huawei B618s-22d is one of Huawei's latest flagship router. Equipped with the latest technological innovations and in particular the 4G+ (category 11) 600Mbits/s, it will be suitable for those wishing to benefit from the current top LTE network. If you think the price is high, you may get satisfied with the lower level router Huawei B525s-23a or a Huawei B315s-22a that do their job right with almost half the price.

Test of TP-Link Archer MR200 4G Router

The TP-Link Archer MR200 Router is a feature-rich router built to maximize performance in your mobile broadband. We had a simple test to show more about TP-link MR200 router.

 

TP-Link Archer MR200 is a desktop 4G router. Unlike the Netgear AirCard 810 Mobile Hotspot we tested recently, Archer MR200 is not a router you can take to town (unless you know you'll be near an electrical outlet). It is relatively large and clumsy and has no rechargeable battery. Instead, it is supposed to be used indoor where the router can get continuous power supply and then the broadband connection would be done quickly and easily.

 

It is also there, in a poor reception reception, the TP-Link Archer MR200 is supposed to show its strength, as it is equipped with a pair of solid external antennas to enhance the 4g reception.

 

User-friendly and feature-rich

 

Getting Started with TP-Link the Archer MR200 is really friendly. Just plug in with the 4G SIM card, turn on the router, enter the preset password that is written on the bottom of the router and start surfing. When it is time to configure the 4g LTE router, this appears to be as easy and smooth as the installation itself. The interface is exemplary quickly, easily and clearly, even when we enter the more advanced settings.

 

 

Despite its rather simple exterior, the TP-Link Archer MR200 proves to be a truly functional and configurable router. Here it is in the top layer compared with competitors in the market.  

 

Reception Good

 

Initially, the TP-Link Archer MR200 manages well in our performance tests. Reception is normal under normal conditions. The connection is always stable during the time we tested it. The WiFi results are slightly better. Here, the TP-Link Archer MR200 puts itself in the top level. The same good results goes for range tests, the TP-Link Archer MR200 gets good values ​​and performed better than most of tested routers.  

 

But when we come to what will be the strength of TP-Link Archer MR200, the reception under difficult conditions, we will be a little bit disappointed. Instead of getting to the top, the TP-Link Archer MR200 turns out to be worse than the average. In fact, the TP-Link Archer MR200 is far below the newly tested mobile router Netgear AirCard 810. If you are located at somewhere with bad signal, you’d better choose a wireless router with connectors for external outdoor LTE antenna, which may help the router to get better 4G/LTE network, so you will enjoy the fastest possible network.

 

 

 

Conclusion

TP-Link Archer MR200 is not a bad router, but does not do all as what we expect from a powerful 4G router. When the router work in good network condition, it performs good, but if in bad condition areas, it has much space to improve to shorten the distance to its competitors. There are many similar 4G routers on the market that are more affordable than this one such as Huawei E5186, ZTE MF286 etc. At last, we have a look at the basic features of TP-link Archer Mr200:
