After long time waiting, finally we get the Huawei AF23 LTE sharing dock today. Many clusters are eagerly looking forward to getting the New LTE sharing dock. Let's have a review for this AF23 LTE Sharing router.

 

   

 

Like other Huawei 4G modems, Huawei AF23 is in original new box. There is plastic cover to see the AF23 directly from outside of the box. It's in white color and looks very mini size. And at first glance at it, we are attracted by the USB slot on the face of AF23.

 

   

 

Open the package box, we can see the AF23 and one USB cable. Below the USB cable, it's the power adapter. When we touch the Huawei AF23, we found it's smaller than its predecessor Huawei D100. There are 5 indicators on the top face, besides the indicators, USB slot is there. Users could plug 3G or 4G modems here to change the 3G modem work like a 4G Wireless router.

 

   

 

At one side of Huawei AF23, there is an Ethernet port for connecting the network cable. So it could also change WLAN to WiFi. Jusst like the already available 4G LTE CPE Huawei B593u-12, HUAWEI AF23 supports maximum 32 users to access network.  

 

 

 

On the back of Huawei AF23, there is a stick indicating the information about model number AF23, Power adapter information, FCC ID, SSID, Wi-Ki Key and IP address. And we can see the S/N and MAC number. There is logo of CE and RoHS, WiFi certified. At the side of the stick, there is the reset hole.
