I came across GL travel routers recently and I am very impressed by what they can do. I immediately bought the MT300N v2 (mango) to test it out. I chose mango for it’s portability and the extremely low power consumption which is very important for travel.
After a week of testing, I am very happy with the product except 2 aspects.
- when I am using mango in repeater mode, the Internet throughput is very slow (~20-30Mbps) although that is still sufficient for most use cases.
- mango takes a bit long (2-3 minutes) to reboot for configuration changes, which I can live with.
I would like to know if the slow throughput is due to the fact that mango works on a single 2.4GHz WiFi band? If so, will this be solved if I get a dual band device such as AR750?
I really love the function of mango and I am promoting it to my friends.
