HUAWEI B683 3G Wireless Router Test and Review

Mobile Internet, which was synonymous with luxury – until recently it is now a very common and convenient way to access the global network and to surf internet. Continuously falling prices of the service make more and more people choose to use mobile or wireless network. Following the wake of growing demand for mobile internet devices, manufacturers are trying to create mobile broadband to maximize the easier and more enjoyable communication for us.


One of these manufacturers is Chinese company Huawei, which launched the HUAWEI B683 3G WiFi router. It could connects to 3G mobile network via LAN or SIM card based on HSPA + standard.

General Review

Huawei B683 3G Wirelss Router stands out from the “crowd” of other routers, its unusual, modern design. The outside plastic is used in glossy casing (so-called “piano”), which unfortunately can be seen virtually every fingerprint. If clean it up, it looks very shining.


At the top of the unit is the Dial-up (used to connect to the Internet) button, the side is the ports for connections in the router (external antenna, connect the telephone line, power supply, USB port, four-port LAN 10/100 Ethernet (RJ45)).

At the front of the router there are two buttons – on / off switch and a button Wi-Fi/WPS (for creating wireless Wi-Fi networks).


Behind the rear panel is reset button (used to restore the factory settings) and pendants, based on which we can put HUAWEI B683 stand like a wall. In this back, you will also find housing flap, concealed SIM slot grille.


The discrete icons on HUAWEI B683 3G WiFi Router informs us connection status, the icons are located around the dial-up button. The lights of the icons will keeping on when the B683 is working, so they could show us below the information clearly, even in a dark room:

* Using the USB port

* Wi-Fi/WPS active network

* Internet connection through mobile

* Power

* LAN status


Package Contents

In the box, we can find the router power adapter and user manual for instructions. Manufacturer unfortunately not provided us information about the gadgets that can connect to the device. And users have to look for an external antenna themselves and buy on their own.


Interface and Support

The device is taken out of the box practically ready for use. To use the mobile Internet, we only need to put a SIM card into and snap, and plug the snap into B683 Router. After power is on, a 3G LAN / Wi-Fi router starts working. Usually, you don’t even need to set up a profile , but if you are unlucky to do this, it’s simple and easy, the configuration wizard helps you through the whole process step by step, you just follow up the wizard and click finish. All finished and it will auto connect to internet.


If we want to use more advanced functions of the router, you have to delve into the administration panel. Do not fail the people who want to have access to a large number of network settings.

Huawei B683 3G Router could set up below configuration:

* MAC address filtering

* IP address filtering

* Setup DMZ

* Mobile network settings (including manual network selection)


* UPnP


Regarding the stability and speed of data transmission – during the test, they are not a big deal. Only when the Wi-Fi connected the three devices simultaneously, this is not enough for the maximum device quantity that HUAWEI B683 could connect. It could support total 32 users to share the network.

Mobile internet worked without delay, the HUAWEI B683 Wireless Router could found and correct 3G network in a few seconds. The infrastructure of the operator at the test, unfortunately, did not allow for “squeezing all the juice” from the router. The test speed that I was able to achieve a 2.05Mbit/s (download) and 0.04Mb/s (upload), even the peak speed declared by the manufacturer could reach 28MB/s (download) and 5.76Mb/s (upload). I suppose it’s due to the network environment.


Huawei also has equipped its product in several additional and very useful features. One of them is the ability to send and receive SMS messages from the admin (of course, if our operator gave this functionality).



Huawei B683 3G WiFi Router is the ideal solution for those who want to create a small network. The device is so functional that allows you to use both mobile internet and desktop – through the telephone line.


Unfortunately, the device also has disadvantages. Manufacturer begrudged accessories for the router – in the standard package, there is only power adapter, user guide, then users couldn’t anything more.


Anyhow, we still give good praise on the router performance, because the case is well fit and makes a solid impression. It is a pity that the manufacturer has applied the glossy, new material. On the other hand, this type of equipment will not touch rather too often, so the prints should not be a problem.


The most important is that when we test it, it keeps working at stable status, which is key point users concern.


Actually, HUAWEI also has other 3G Wireless Routers, such as HUAWEI B970b HSDPA 3G WiFi Router, we will introduce next time.

HUAWEI E5 Family –3G 4G Pocket WiFi

It would be lucky if you or your friend around have HUAWEI E5 Pocket WiFi Hotspot, you can easily share the wireless network via this device. As the world leading Pocket WiFi Hotspot, more and more people get to know the star from HUAWEI Portable 3G Router. When traveling, business trip, outdoor acctivities, you may feel enjoyable and convenient if you have a pocket WiFi HUAWEI E5.

So what is HUAWEI E5 Pocket WiFi? For Pocket WiFi, it’s easy to understand, but for HUAWEI E5, it could be a long but fantastic story.


HUAWEI E5, the original factory model should be E583X, was firstly released at  at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona in February 2009. Japan was the first country to introduce this mobile WiFi Hotspot(named HUAWEI E5830) to demestic and launched to commerce. As the developed market for electronics, Japanese like this portable 3G router very much, which made HUAWEI E5830 (The frist generation of HUAWEI E5 Pocket WiFi). Per the report from HUAWEI, the sales record of HUAWEI E5 pocket WiFi reached 300,000 units at the end of 2009. Now more than 40 networks operators are ordering HUAWEI E5 and introduce them to their domestic electronic users. Of course, they are not introducing the first generation of HUAWEI E5, HUAWEI have already launched 4th generation Pocket WiFi E5. Let us see what’s the stars of 4 generations.


First Generation– HUAWEI E583X(E5830, E5830S, E585, E583C, E560) 7.2Mbps Mobile WiFi Hotspot


As we introduced before, HUAWEI E583X opened the market for 3G Pocket WiFi based on its portability and easy use. The E5830s mobile Wi-Fi device connects to devices using its wireless interface, providing Internet access through any Wi-Fi device, mobile phone, game console, digital camera, notebook and PDA. Key features include: intelligent power control, temperature protection, web messages, web SD card information sharing, small screen page setting and screen display of statuses.



Huawei announced the launch of its next-generation mobile Wi-Fi device, the E583C in July 2010. Huawei developed the E585 based on feedback from consumers and UK wireless carrier Three, including a start-up button and OLED display detailing information such as signal strength, 3G or HSDPA connectivity, number of devices connected to the hub, battery level, and the network being used. This improvement makes HUAWEI E585 and E583C easier to operate and connection status more visible. They are equipped with a personal mobile WiFi hotspot to support maximum of 5 compatible devices. Sometimes, with USB cable, users can get one more device to access internet. These devices include notebooks, iPads, or handheld gaming consoles etc..

Huawei E583C Mobile 3G Router seems more popular because it adopts a new design with a 1-inch color OLED display that shows information such as network operator details, signal strength, Wi-Fi connection status, and battery level. And with the external antenna, users in rural area or low signal area could have external option to enhance their connection speed. The E583c converts 3.5G HSPA mobile signal into Wi-Fi coverage, automatically creating Internet access and individual Wi-Fi hotspots for up to five Wi-Fi-enabled digital devices. It can also provide simultaneous Internet access to a sixth device when it is connected to a laptop computer via a USB cable. HUAWEI E583c Pocket WiFi Router should be a revolution model fro HUAWEI because from this model, HUAWEI began to sell HUAWEI E5 with their own brand, but they maintain the channel with the operators. It’s a time of strategy change, HUAWEI want to build their own brand, not just the producer for operator carriers.


HUAWEI E560 Portable 3G Hotspot comes out recently, but seems it’s not a popular model because its price in high range and no more new style on this device, just copy the function of HUAWEI E585, and change appearance to HUAWEI E586, then E560 was born.


The key features of HUAWEI E5 first generation is that they support HSDPA 7.2Mbps and 5 WiFi enabled devices could share wireless network (one more via USB cable).

Second Generation– HUAWEI E586 E5331 E5332 E5151 3G HSPA+ 21Mbps Mobile WiFi Hotspot



With the network upgrade, there must be new devices to support the higher network. Then HUAWEI E5 second generation comes out. HUAWEI E586 Mobile WiFi Router was ther first model for 2nd generation. On 17 August 2011, UK Three announced its new high-speed mobile Wi-Fi device: the Huawei-built E586 MiFi, the first mobile Wi-Fi device in the UK to feature next generation HSPA+ mobile broadband technology.. But due to price, HUAWEI E586 3G WiFi Router seems not as popular as first generation models. If you use the device with contract, E586 is considerable. And there is branch model E586ES with external antenna ports.

New WiFi hotspots follow to meet customers’ preference. HUAWEI E5331 Mobile WiFi comes out with very good price and slim appearance, it soon become the best seller in Middle East and Europe. It supports HSPA+ data service up to 21.6Mbps and HSPA+ upload up to 5.76Mbps. With connection time in only 5 second, it becomes more attractive to the users who want easy setup and fast connection with high speed link. Few people know E5331 mobile HSPA+ router has a sister model HUAWEI E5332 with external antenna port. The main difference between them is the antenna. Other features are almost the same. Configured bands of E5331 and E5332 seem more appropriate for users in Europe and Africa.

There is one special E5 pocket WiFi HUAWEI E5151. HUAWEI E5151 pocket WiFi is different from other 2nd generation HUAWEI E5 models because besides the features of 3G UMTS bands and HSPA+ speed, E5151 has an Ethernet port to connect Ethernet cable, which can transfer the WLAN to WiFi signal. So to some extent, HUAWEI E5151 Pocket WiFi is a mobile WiFi and WLAN router.

In conclude, HUAWEI E5 2nd generation could support HSPA+ 21mbps and 5.76mbps, with support of 5 wifi users, with or without external antenna port.



Third Generation– HUAWEI E587 E5756 3G DC-HSPA+ Mobile WiFi Hotspot


Consumers always want the network moving faster, and the wireless terminals. And there HUAWEI E587 42Mbps Mobile WiFi comes into eyes. With external antenna port and larger battery capacity, HUAWEI E587 HSPA+ Pocket WiFi help the users who need high speed transmission or game player to experience much better. The workmanship of HUAWEI E587 Mobile WiFi is much more exquisite than previous model. Looking back to the old models, the path somewhat like iPhone, at the beginning, iPhone 1 or 2 are not that well know, from iPhone 3, it become hot among users. When iPhone 4 appears, it’s the hottest mobile phones in the markets. Comparing with iPhone 3, iPhone 4 has much better workmanship and many improvements in performance. HUAWEI E587 Mobile Router somewhat like iPhone 4. When you hand it, the feel is much different from normal pocket wifi.

Now, there is a new pocket WiFi Huawei E5756 42mbps WiFi hotspot available now. Due to lack of enough information, we can tell what the difference between HUAWEI E587 and E5756 is, but one point is clear that there must some improvements in E5756, we suppose it like HUAWEI E5331 with better internal design and better solution for users.

So the key features of the third generation of HUAWEI E5 family is download speed at HSPA+ 42Mbps and much better workmanship than predecessors.



Fourth Generation– HUAWEI E589 E5776 4G LTE Pocket WiFi Router


Since 4G LTE era comes, HUAWEI E5 Family develops new members to meet the requirements from networks and end users. HUAWEI E589 4G LTE Mobile Pocket WiFi comes to meet the demand and there is no doubt that HUAWEI E589 Portable 4G Router would attract many geeks or MiFi lovers’ eyes. HUAWEI E589 Support LTE download speed at 100Mbps, and support LTE FDD 900/1800/2100/2600Mhz, which almost covers all the 4G LTE networks all over the world. And in any countries deployed 4G LTE network, you can find available SIM card to use with HUAWEI E589 Pocket WiFi. That’s the most attractive core for HUAWEI E589. But it seems HUAWEI E589 4G LTE Router let consumers wait too long time. It’s expected to be available next month. Who knows…

HUAWEI E589 4G Router is not the end of HUAWEI E5, actually, HUAWEI released another HUAWEI E5 4G Pocket WiFi Hotspot with HUAWEI E589. The model number is HUAWEI E5776 4G Mobile WiFi Router, which support LTE donwload up to 150Mbps. What a amazing! The same features of HUAWEI E589 and E5776 is that they could both support up to 10 WiFi enabled devices, which is almost the double of the first generation of HUAWEI E5 Models.

So the fourth generation of HUAWEI E5 family is that they support 4G LTE network and upgrade of donwload speed. More up to 10 users could share the WiFi network.



We believe more and more HUAWEI E5 mobile devices would be available in near future. And more and more consumers will enjoy the wireless world brought from HUAWEI E5 Family.
