After unpacking you have Hotspot quickly so far that you can get started. Runternehmen cover SIM card purely, purely battery, cover to infect and untwist. Then you have to set the hotspot on the well-crafted web interface. It immediately launches a wizard to enter the profile, then set nor the PIN number and the Wi-Fi and set password for customization and you're done.
The reception is very good, better than most mobile. The display on the display also reveals whether one is connected via 2G or 3G networks, more is not differentiated. It is also seen by a globe displayed if the Internet connection is working and how many devices are registered in the WLAN. The wireless transmission power I would describe as good, even very good for such a small device.
The battery lasts through the promised 6 hours that I could test on excursions.
As far as this sounds good and I would have awarded 5 stars, but now to my problems and the devaluation.
With the first instrument I had a good internet connection and was able to surf normal, same with mobile phone and PC. At some point I realized that I was not more but connected to phone and PC to the Internet. The hotspot also showed good Internet connection and WLAN on, at speeds up and down but remained the 0 and the PC reported limited network activity. When trying to access the web interface was just the message I was not connected to the Internet. But that should work regardless of the Internet connection, since only the wireless connection to the internet is needed.
With the replacement unit, I had a whole month my joy, only rare failures that I put on the mobile network. But since 2 weeks I have again massive problems with the connection. I can not watch a single video continuously, on Internet pages is after 5 Clicking again Stop the surf. At first I thought to network problems due to bad weather. After a reset and existing problems occurred to me that I did not come in the web interface again. So it is exactly the same problems as the first unit. It reports good Internet and wireless connection, yet done nothing for 5 minutes, suddenly come to the website after the umpteenth attempt goes there but, for 1 minute. So no fun comes to surfing.
I can assure you that I have everything set up correctly and that the network is not a problem because I am USB stick no problems have to get a connection.
Because of the hotspot when it works is very good, I admit I stole 2 stars. Maybe you just need a lot of luck to get one that works well even permanently.
I hope to have helped with my review.
I have now also tested a tip from the Internet, where you should make the wireless mode to 11g only. I first 11n only tested, there were the same problems. Then I tested 11g only and again there were the same problems.
The display at the hotspot indicates Internet connection and Wi-Fi connection, but you do not reach even to the web interface of the router.
I'm going to the TP-Link now return and me the Huawei E5220 Mobile Wi-Fi router (German version, up to 10 wireless access points, 5s boot time, HSPA +) white Buy.
