Technical Specifications

 

The ZTE MF823 from Chinese telecommunications equipment vendor ZTE, replaces the current model MF821D from O2. All thing should be mentioned that ZTE MF823 is not the best USB stick when the ZTE MF825 is also in its product range. It supports LTE category 3 (max. 100 Mbit) and therefore with all networks from O2. In any case, the mobile service provider can offer data connections on the basis of category 4, which allows data rates up to 150 Mbps. It supports the LTE frequencies at 800, 900, 1800 and 2600 MHz – for operation in European countries. Likewise, the MF823 could also support DC-HSPA+ (to 42.2 Mbps), UMTS and GSM networks.

 

 

Unlike the Speed Stick 4 by Telekom, the stick fortunately has two connectors for an external antenna – optional to improve reception. Like almost all other models, user can insert a MicroSD memory card of up to 32GB of storage space for data of all kinds.

 

 

Others

Users do not have to install an extra software for the MF823, which would be auto connect to network. It is controlled conveniently from the browser via the web interface. It is enough to enter the following IP in the browser: http://192.168.3.1. The interface shows all important data at a glance. And you can see, how much volume you have already used in the current billing month. The stick is also compatible with the IPv6 protocol. According to the manufacturer ZTE, the MF823 uses about 1/4 less power than even the previous generations. It’s special for operation on a laptop or tablet. We are also pleased that quite modest dimensions of the model. At just 13 mm in height and 26 grams, it is one of the shallower representatives of its kind. It is alleged that the world’s smallest LTE data modem. Important to mention would be that there is no SIM lock, so the drive can be used with Contract card of other network operators.

 

Conclusion

The ZTE MF823 for O2 can provider users at an acceptable price for mobile Internet. With slim size and decent network support, it could be good partner for laptop. It’s available on www.4gltemall.com . But if you want to find better models, the Speed Stick III or the Huawei E3276, may be good options, but they are also more expensive.

Huawei E5786

 

The Chinese manufacturer Huawei introduced the world’s first MiFi router E5786 for LTE-Advanced at the Mobile World Congress in February 2014. The E5786 should be the first mobile router with support for LTE CAT6. But the rival ZTE has a similar device called “ZTE Flare”. This seems at higher quality than the counterpart of Huawei.

 

 

LTE-Advanced Router

 

As already indicated, Huawei E5786 is the first LTE-Advanced equipment with Category 6(CAT6). The current LTE networks comply with category 3 and 4 (CAT 3/4), which take 100-150 Mbit/s for download speed, but with Cat.6, the speed of 300 MBit/s could be achieved for download, practically doubling the current level. However, these data rates will initially only be available in selected cities and probably seldom achieved in practice.

 

Portable CAT6 Wi-Fi router

 

The Mini-Router supports LTE to almost all popular bands. For example, 800, 1800, 2100 and 2600 MHz. Of course, it dominated Carrier aggregation at cat.6 and can thus achieve up to 300 Mbits downlink and 50 MBit upload rate. Besides the supported earlier LTE categories, it supports as well as 3G and 2G wireless standards. The Huawei E5786 sets chip on Huawei Hisilicon with a HPM Cortex 9 processor while ZTE flare has a modern block Qualcomm Gobi 9 × 30 chipset in ultrathin 20nm technology.

Users can set up a Wi-Fi hotspot for up to 10 other terminals to log in, and over all popular wireless standards (802.11 a/b/g/n/ac). Data can be exchanged internally with up to 300 Mbit/s via WLAN AC. The operation runs in the dual-band, so either to 2.4 or 5 GHz.

 

 

Others

 

Negative falls on first, that the battery is not removable. The capacity is with 3000 mAh, practically high standard. This should make up 10 hours of online work or 500 hours standby.

As usual, the Operation can be carried out via the browser. Per QR codes, which can be displayed optionally on the display let you integrate quickly into smartphones network, which considerably facilitates the establishment. In addition, Huawei has a special app that can monitor and configure your wireless network. The interface informs the used traffic and provides the wireless data rate represents a graphical trend. There are connections for external antennas and a Micro SD slot. The antenna format is TS-9 here.

Availability

The Germany Telekom has the identical model in the form of “Speedport II mini” as an OEM version. The original Huawei E5786 was available on the online trade store www.4gltemall.com . If you like the unlocked original version Huawei E5786, welcome to have a check.

 

Huawei Honor Cube WS831 Wireless 802.11ac Router

Recently, we tested several Huawei home routers. The powerful platforms and attractive price are interesting. However, the software can not always satisfy demanding users.

Huawei WS831 Wireless Router

In this article we look at the router Huawei Honor Cube WS831, which also has a second name “Honor Cube” in some sources.

 

This Honor Cube model has wired ports 100 Mbit/s (one WAN and two LAN), two wireless access points in the 2.4 and 5 GHz, and it supports the current protocol 802.11ac, and is equipped with a USB 2.0 port for connecting external storage devices.

 

In testing, we used the unlocated devices, so it was difficult to find even English letters on the box and in the instructions and in the web interface. Provided that this model is not on the manufacturer’s website, and not even any documents, it is possible that we will miss some of the features of the device.

Huawei WS831 Wireless Router

Packing router has an almost cubic shape and unusual celadon. No technical information on it, apparently, except for references to a faster processor, support for 802.11ac and company management utilities for mobile devices.

Huawei WS831 Wireless Router

The package includes the router power supply 5.1 V 2.1 A flat Gigabit Ethernet patch cable, a brief description, a warranty card and, as a bonus, the calendar for this year.

Huawei WS831 Wireless Router

 

The body of the router is made of white glossy plastic. Its dimensions are 90 × 90 × 94 mm. The top cover is printed the name of the series – Honor.

On the edge, the slit are passive ventilation. The second group of holes can be seen in the lower part of the housing.

Huawei WS831 Wireless Router

 

On the front side is a button «Hi» with chrome rim and a built-in multi-color display, which probably used to connect wireless clients on technology WPS, and reset (with a long press).

All connectors are assembled on the rear panel – input power supply, one port WAN, LAN port and two port USB 2.0. Turn the power of this model is not provided.

Huawei WS831 Wireless Router

 

The bottom of the selected gray matte is plastic. Based housing has two large rubber inserts that hold it firmly on a flat surface. But you can not fix this model on the wall. There is also a sticker with information about the device, where you can find the wireless network name by default, MAC- and IP-address, serial number and other data.

 

The main processor unit can be found labeled “5650”. The network has information about the fact that he is a SoC HiSilicon SD5650H with a pair of ARM-cores running at 1 GHz. Given the absence of heat sinks on the chip, and the use of wired ports only at 100 Mbit/s, it is hard to believe in these characteristics. The RAM of the device is 128 MB, and has 16 MB of flash memory for firmware. The Fast Ethernet controller for network is built into the main processor.

Huawei WS831 Wireless Router

The model is equipped with two radio blocks: Realtek RTL8192ER responsible for 802.11b/g/n 2.4GHz, and Realtek RTL8812AE for 802.11a/n/ac 5 GHz. Both chips use a configuration of two MIMO antennas that gives the maximum connection speed of 300Mbit/s and 876 Mbit/s, respectively. On the radio blocks, there are no radiators. Antennas are built-in in the model and are on opposite inner walls of the body.

 

The Huawei Honor Cube Ws831 is a cool wireless router with high speed for download. So if you would like it, welcome to purchase from www.4gltemall.com .

Technical Features

 

With 11 x 7 x 7 centimeters and 250 grams in weight, the A1 Internet box 4G/LTE E5180 is portable enough to be used as a mobile LTE router. The micro-SIM card comes in a slot on the bottom of the unit. In addition to the technical specifications, the design attracts the eyes. It is probably no exaggeration to say that Huawei E5180 is the currently most fashionable LTE router in the world.

 

Mobile Internet

 

With the support LTE Category 4 and provided an appropriate collective as well as a developed network, Huawei E5180 Cube could achieve download speeds of up to 150 Mbit/s and 50 Mbit/s speeds for upload at 800, 1,800 and 2,600MHz. If no LTE network available, thanks to the support of DC-HSPA+, the E5180 Cube could reach download speed up to 42 Mbit/s. The only drawback that we could find in the router: It has incomprehensibly no connections or ports for external antennas. Therefore, one should keep a close eye on reception quality. If the signal is weak, you should move the location of the cube.

 

Wireless LAN

 

Up to 32 devices in the house can be supplied with the A1 Internet box 4G/LTE E5180 via WLAN. The connection is elegantly solved: By pressing the blue backlit lid of the box, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n is activated. Huawei promises a wireless range of up to 250 meters with a possible maximum speed of 300 Mbit/s.

 

Safety

 

At the same time, the cover also serves as a WPS button, with the click of a button easily and quickly WPS encryption is built (WPA and WPA2 are also supported). The A1 E5180 dominated UPnP (Universal Plug & Play) and is also protected by an integrated firewall.

 

Connections

 

For wired Internet connections, the E5180 has only one Ethernet port, here you would already want multiple ports. On the back there are the RJ45 output, the RJ11 port for an analog phone or fax machine as well as the connection for the 12-volt power adapter.

 

 Availability

 

The Internet box 4G/LTE E5180 there are offered by A1 for new customers at no extra charge when booking an A1 mobile Internet tariff (S/M/L). If you want the unlocked version of Huawei E5180 A1 Internet box, you can check the online website www.4gltemall.com .

Technical Features

 

The D-Link DW-932 is an category 4 LTE router, ie, in a suitable micro-SIM card with LTE tariff, up to 150 Mbit/s could be achieved to surf the web. In upload, a maximum upload speed of 50 Mbit/s is possible. Where no LTE is available, the DW-932 can switch to UMTS network as backup. As a mobile hotspot, the device supplies a few devices could be connected to DW-932 (the exact number is not said by D-Link); the fast Wi-Fi ac is not supported.

 

Secured multiple

Safety is a top priority at the DW-932: Pushing a button and get encrypted with WPA or WPA2 connection to other mobile devices made via WPS (WiFi Protected Setup). In addition, the router has an internal firewall and NAT (Network Address Translation). On the little display, D-Link DW-932 indicates the network type, signal strength, roaming status, incoming SMS, the Internet connection, the provider, the battery level and wireless encryption.

 

Practical travel companion

 

Although not exactly the black, DW-932 is a beauty, it is with dimensions of 7.3 x 7.3 x 1.5 centimeters at 77 grams of weight, which is very compact and so perfectly suited as a mobile travel companion. It can provide his services on holidays available if it supplies the whole family with “Free WiFi” with only a local prepaid card.

 

Battery with disappointing endurance

The DW-932 Battery has the capacity of 2,020 mAh on the paper. However, in our test, the  useful life is only 4 hours, which would be below the average and very disappointing. Other manufacturer do this better, for example, the Huawei E5878 Prime with a weaker battery could runs twice long surfing time. To charge the battery, you need connect the USB port of a PC.

 

 

Conclusion

Even if it is handy and convenient, the D-Link DW-932 has a few weaknesses. Here now we have other alternatives from Chinese Huawei and ZTE, the recommend models are Huawei E5372, ZTE MF93D. They are popular in Europe and Asia.
