oh and are these devices faster than a device where a sim card gets inserted directly into the wireless modem?

For example a Huawei E5331?

With regards to the TL-MR3420 and TL-MR3220. What are the comparative sppeds of these 2 units?

Do you know the range of the TL-MR3040? Will it work well in a small apartment. The area has good 3G coverage. - Asked by jonathanshutte (61 Rating score between 50 and 99)

We cannot say if they are faster or slower as the only difference is that the our units use a dongle and the E5331 takes a sim card. The connection will still depend on how good your 3G Coverage is in your area.

Hi there,

Are all of your devices compatible with a Huawei K3520 modem?

Namely the TP-Link Portable Battery Powered 3G Wireless N Router, TP-Link MR3220 3G/4G Wireless Lite N Router, and the TP-Link MR3420 3G/4G Wireless N Router?

Which of these 3 devices would you recommend? Pros and cons? - Asked by jonathanshutte (61 Rating score between 50 and 99)

Thank you for your inquiry

The K3520 is listed on the TP-Link website but we have not tested this modem personally therefor we cannot guarantee compatibility. The difference between the TL-MR3420 and TL-MR3220 is the wifi speed. The TL-MR3040 is the only unit that is battery powered but will not provide as much coverage as the other models.

Good day

I am interested in purchasing this device and have a Vodafone (Huwai) K3772-Z usb modem to create a wi-fi hotspot. Is it compatible with this router? I have looked at the TP-Link compatibility list and not found the modem there. I wondered if you might have an idea?

If not compatible could you suggest another wireless router that would work with this modem at a comparable price?

Good morning,

Thank you for your inquiry. We have tested the K3772-Z previously and it is unfortunately not compatible with our 3G routers. It appears that the K3772-Z is unfortunately a widely incompatible device.

Thank you.

Hi, can I connect this to a Nikon D3X DSLR so that I can control my camera wirelessly via iPAD - Asked by mkoen (14 Rating score between 10 and 49)

Thank you for your question. Unfortunately we are not familiar with camera. The router is however capable of creating a wireless 'hotspot', and you'd be able to connect multiple devices wirelessly to the router. All devices connected to the router would be able to communicate with each other.

You can also insert a compatible 3G dongle into the router's USB port to share your internet connection wirelessly with multiple devices. The router is also battery powered, making it convenient for travelling.

Does this work with a Vodafone K3805-Z USB stick? - Asked by BOBTrade (88 Rating score between 50 and 99)

Good day and thank you for your inquiry.

Unfortunately the K3805-Z is not compatible with the 3G Routers which we stock. This modem is listed on the TP-Link website but we have tested the unit and it disconnects continuously. We would not recommend using this modem with our 3G routers.
