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. However please note that the Archer MR200 does not support VPN 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 Beyond Simple! This little router is so simple to set up. Literally take your SIM card, place it in the little plastic cradle provided, pop it in the SIM slot and then turn on! You are given a website address on which you can change your router name and password from the standard one provided (this is recommended). Once that's all done you are then connected wireless to the internet using any device around your home. We have connected laptops, desktop PCs, android phones and iPhones, plus iPads with no problem. You can place it anywhere in your home and it is fully compatible with the various wireless extenders on the market (we have TP Link ourselves). Great item to take with you on holiday / business / other people's houses / the library or anywhere else you may need wifi and can plug the router in (obviously so long as you can get 3G/4G via a SIM). Would highly recommend this router.

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 1 out of 5 by from Read all the reviews as to how simple to set up I bought this to replace the terrible BT Service guarantee 400K, but having followed the instructions....... Nothing, Power on 3 Bars Wifi indicator connect to PC, I can get 4G on my phone in all rooms tried moving to up stairs, no 4G?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ok for boats as well Use this on a canal narrowboat, which is a metal box, so poor signal strength inside, though in some areas it did work well. Now have an external antenna which makes a great difference - just a cheap one to test the concept - later I will get a decent LTE dual omnidirectional antenna. If getting for a boat or house for that matter where the signal strength is poor, then you will need a decent external antenna (depending on the network you will use, but you will probably need a UK spec and not US spec 4G/LTE antenna) which is about £70, so make sure that is part of the budget as you may be very disappointed with performance if you don't. The set-up options are pretty good and easy to access. If you want to know more techy stuff before you buy, download the manual direct from the TP Link site.

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 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing I needed a replacement 4G router in a hurry and this appeared to tick all the boxes. Fair price, easy set up, clear configuration interface reasonable functionality . Then I discovered a problem, you can't use this router with VPN which is a disaster for anybody who is a remote worker needing VPN access. Worse still is that TP Link are aware of the issue and have not sorted it. (See their own forum!) If you don't need VPN but do need 4G internet then this is a workable solution but if you need to have VPN connectivity then steer clear.

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.

Does the router also support LTE Advanced (aka 4G+)?

Asked by: Volker
The manual doesn't mention anything about "LTE Advanced" but it could simply be that this predates the release of it. I've emailed the manufacturer the same question and will update this answer when they respond.

Hi, I am looking to purchase a router for my tills but don't want to pay for an expensive provider, would I be able to use this as they only need to be connected to Ethernet ports.

Asked by: Ch6484
You would require a service from an internet provider for this router to operate.
