What can I expect from this router?
The Archer MR200 is a great router for both personal and professional environments. It can be used either as a cable router or has a sim card allowing it to connect to 3G/4G LTE mobile phone networks. This ability to connect to both network types ensures you will always be able to get online. Simultaneous dual-band wireless can deliver speeds of up to 750Mbps ensuring that all of your portable devices have fast, reliable access to your network at all times. There are also four 10/100Mbps wired Ethernet ports on this router to allow you to plug your devices in directly.

Do I need to configure this router?
When using the Archer MR200 on 4G LTE you can operate the router simply by inserting your sim card and connecting your Wi-Fi devices to it. When using it on other internet connections you can be up and running simply by plugging an Ethernet lead into the WAN port on the router. It is advisable to change the router’s security settings so you can limit who can access your network.

Is this router suitable for taking on the move?
This router can operate anywhere as long as you can plug it into mains electricity. It is an excellent choice for remote destinations where traditional internet connections aren’t available and shows and conferences where you don’t want to install permanent connections.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A great device all-round with one major flaw This was a great device for the needs of our household - all devices could connect to it OK anywhere in the house and it maintained a faultless connection to Vodafone's 4G service. The main problem was that it didn't allow our Humax Freesat box to stream content through the BBC iPlayer - either via wifi or direct cable connection. Oddly, the content page in the iPlayer app would get updates to show the latest programmes available, it just wouldn't play the video content. Other apps on the Humax box worked fine (YouTube, Netflix) and the iPlayer worked OK on other devices in the house. I had to return this device as a result.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High Speed Broadband at last!! I live in the sticks with terrible broadband. This router has given me 20-30 Mbps on 4g, when I previously had 1 Mbps on copper. It's as easy as buy a sim, plug in and you're away. Had to locate my box outside as need to buy an external antenna.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Even I could get this going!! As it says, it really is plug and play. However, initially it wouldn't work on my Vodafone sim, but worked fine on my 3 sim. With help from Vodafone I had to change some settings. There's great range in the Wifi. There is no Irish helpline, and live chat didn't work, or was too slow for my level of patience. I'm holding back a star for that reason, but overall I would recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 4G faster than broadband I bought this to increase my internet access speeds. I am too far from a BT exchange to get any more than 5Mbit/s. The MR200 is achieving 20 to 30 Mbit/s. It was easy to set up and has been working well for a couple of weeks. I am very satisfied with this product which has an easy web-based interface.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 4G Internet I bought this unit to use 4G as my home internet home connection as the BT connection is very bad. Worked great and was 4x the speed of my BT line. How fast will depend on how close you are to a transmitter. My only problem now is the price of 4G data, I am getting 20G a month for £13 at the moment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just like my cable modem Now that we are moving into rented accommodation temporarily this seemed a good purchase. Picks up 4g well, even in difficult areas, the WIFI signal is ok. Speed good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Got us out of a very tight spot used as a temporary link until the main WAN links were presented. Excellent 4G coverage providing you select the right Telecoms vendor 1st. The guest WiFi is a really useful feature and theat allowed us to provide capability required by the customer from day 1

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wi-fi coverage Wi-fi signal covered only 15 meters. It tried its on empty depot where no building is only empty field. My mobile phone wi-fi signal covered more 30 meters.

Hi I want to put this in a 15 seater bus so as everyone can have guest wifi access on their phone - is this suitable or can you suggest something else?

Asked by: Colintb
Unfortunately, we are unable to guarantee full compatibility for this item as it will need 240v ac connection.

Hi, my 4G signal is not great on my phone (usually only 1 bar). I wondered if this device would be able to pick up a stronger (more reliable) signal as it has 2 external antenna? Thanks

Asked by: Patch
The router will utilise whatever 4G signal is available, if you are in a poor signal area it will be poor signal. The number or aerials has little effect on the routers ability to connect to mobile signal.

Can you take off the aerials and use there ports to connect an external antenna? If not can you help with what 4g routers can connect to a external antenna 

Asked by: Will5094
Yes this is indeed possible by removing the existing antennae which are screw on SMA type. You can then simply attach the leads from your external LTE MIMO kit and achieve dramatic proformance enhancement.

How many wifi devices it can support ?

Asked by: timochuah
A number is not provided so this would be 200+ although the bandwidth available would probably stop this from working.
Answered by: Dominic
Date published: 2017-03-12

Is this compatible with Chromecast? Can it be configured to automatically switch to the SIM card if my dodgy home broadband cuts out?

Asked by: JonS
No, I am sorry but the item will not work for this use.
