Holidays arrive and with them the disconnection of our WiFi network from home and work, and this is not necessarily good, because not having internet also means giving up leisure activities that we want to resume on vacation, how to enjoy our favorite Netflix or HBO series. Use the data from our iPhone? It is not recommended because we would use up the rate right away.
The operators each time include better extra data rates for specific periods without any type of permanence so that we do not have to exhaust the rate of our iPhone or iPad, but how can we use that rate with our iPhone? Normal USB modems don't work, but There are other devices such as the TP-Link M7350 that creates a WiFi network to connect up to 10 devices at once.
Dual Band, 4G and sufficient autonomy
With a size smaller than that of our iPhone, this TP-Link 4G router performs better than one might think. In addition to being compatible with high-speed networks (4G / LTE) It has the peculiarity that you can create a 2.4GHz network, with greater range, or a 5GHz network that has less interference. Both networks are not simultaneous, but you will have to choose between one or the other according to your preferences.
It allows maximum download speeds of 150Mbps and up to 50Mbps. Obviously this will depend on the coverage you have in your area. The coverage you get with this mobile router is very similar to what you have with the iPhone, and the download speed achieved is also similar in the tests I have done. In my area the 4G network is not very good and the coverage barely reaches a line, with drops to 3G in most of the time, and still the speed achieved is quite acceptable for most of the tasks you intend to perform. The reach of the router is also quite good, getting coverage on both floors of a single-family house without problems.
The router has a battery so you can use it on your trips without plugging it in. The official specifications speak of up to 10 hours of autonomy, but in my case they have surpassed 6 hours before he asked me to connect it to the load, and although it is a much lower figure than the official one, it is more than enough to make a trip by car or train. Thanks to the screen that incorporates you can see at all times what battery you have, in addition to other information such as coverage, downloaded data or even the number of connected devices.
Simple setup and operation
To start working with the TP-Link MiFi router, it doesn't take much, just the operator's SIM, activated, and little else. By default it will create a “TP-LINK **” type network with a pre-configured key, which is printed on the inside of the back cover. Of course this can be changed from a web interface that you can access from the address "http://tplinkmifi.net" connected to the router network with the username and password "admin". You can also do it from the tpMiFi app that you have available in the App Store and that I definitely recommend downloading for this and other tasks.
