TP-LINK TL-MR3020 3G/4G Wireless N150 Portable Router Review


Buy it on Amazon – (affiliate link). On the surface this product is a wonderful little router. A simple switch easily changes modes depending on the use case without having to hop into the control panel.

I did successfully use the device as an access point, plugging its ethernet port into my network to create an instant wireless network. It just worked but you should be mindful that its IP address doesn’t conflict with the rest of your networking when first hooking it up. It’s set to but can be configured for DHCP through its control panel.

When the switch is set to 3G/4G mode it can work like other home routers and share a DSL or cable modem connection through its ethernet port to the wireless, or utilize a 3G/4G USB cellular modem for the shared broadband connection. It’s then possible to share that cellular modem through the ethernet and Wifi. DISCLOSURE: I received this product free of charge through the Amazon Vine program to review on Amazon’s site.

  1. Perhaps a silly question but can I get this to operate as a failover modem service (assuming 4G dongle is attached to it) to my existing broadband router for when the line is down? I have a small home network of maybe ten devices (WiFi and wired) that always connect to the router's ethernet ports or WiFi but the broadband is intermittent so would like it to be possible for this to substitute the modem / internet connection without changing all the other Wired / WiFi connections.
