TL-MR3020 – Portable 3G/4G Wireless N Router – Review

A Handy 4G Wi-Fi Multifunctional Router

We barely not write a lot of hardware reviews, as our main topics are website, SEO and marketing based – but in this particular situation we like to give our customers and users a quick review, additional advice.

We recently bought a TP-Link portable 3G/4G Wireless N Router – the model is TL-MR3020. The circumstances we are having here on our location (Koh Samui), whenever there is an power cut, or the fiber network is interrupted, we are not able to use – sadly – the internet until it’s fixed. So we bought a kind of solution, to cover this situation.

The requirements was, having something in hand, can access to our LAN used as a router, having the possibility to use the mobile network (in our case with an USB 3G/4G Modem – we get into it later) and having also a Wi-Fi set up.

We found the TP-Link TL-MR3020 quite inexpensive and gave it a try. Bought on TP-Link’s Lazada’s Official Store and it arrived some days later.

Unpacked as it arrived, plugged in and started to set-up as per Quick Start Guide. Changed the “internal location” – Eh voilĂ ! Done.

Easy set-up and quick install – great. We used it primary as access point. But the possibility to use it as a router with an USB Modem would be possible too.
