Last year i wanted to do the same thing at home and the best solution i could find was to buy an asus. I bought this for my flat in spain as i wanted a router with openvpn so that i could use chromecast with my vpn. I have to say it works a treat and i am streaming crystal clear pictures to my television. Last year i wanted to do the same thing at home and the best solution i could find was to buy an asus router which did the job and has served me well however this device does the same thing as well if not better for a quarter of the price. It is also tiny so handy for transporting. As others have said the shipped documentation is sparse to say the least however there are setup instructions for all the basic features on the website. I also posted a question on the forum which was answered very quickly. I am a relative it novice and have had no great problems setting things up and if you want a router to use all your connected devices with a vpn this could well be for you.

Great device let down by poor wifi. I would have originally rated this item 5 star. A teeny router with an ethernet lan port, an ethernet wan port and wifi built in. Openwrt is installed and has brilliant features and is extremely extensible. This device would have received a 5 star review had i not waited and kept on using it. I have been using this router for a week or two and it lets me down at least once most evenings. I only have two devices configured to connect to it. They struggle to connect and bandwidth seems to be a problem most evenings even when my broadband line is not heavily utilised but the wifi bands are busier. During the day it works fine. I can only put it down to the wifi adapter in the router not being up to the job.

Great feature packed little router. . Excellent little openwrt router, it is very small but fully featured. It doesn’t have many features on the easy setup webgui, so something from a brand name like tplink would be better if you need that. The wi-fi range and signal quality is excellent, probably better than my expensive tplink wireless ac router. I have used it as a wireless range extender (both wireless-wireless and wired-wireless) and it has worked faultlessly. 3amp off a usb charger, so its very low power and does run for hours off a usb powerbank. This could be improved by offering a 5ghz model, and more features under the easy setup webgui so you don’t have to resort to the very complicated luci interface so much. The manufacturer is updating this regularly so the webgui gets better all the time. It comes preconfigured for ddns and will open a port on your main router to do this. Hier sind die Spezifikationen für die GL.iNet GL-MT300A Mini Travel Router with 2dbi external antenna, Wi-Fi Converter, OpenWrt Pre-installed, Repeater Bridge, 300Mbps High Performance, 128MB RAM, OpenVPN, Tor Compatible:

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • Powered by MTK 7620A and OpenWrt pre-installed, 128M RAM, 2dbi external antenna
  • Mini router with powerful CPU, 300Mbps WiFi
  • Perfect for applications like VPN and Tor, OpenVPN pre-installed (from V2.19)
  • Hardware interfaces for DIY
  • MicroSD daught board, perfect for portal private cloud

I use it with nordvpn purely to obfuscate my traffic. Can’t say anything on the security as i haven’t done any assessment or pentesting.

This router is amazing and simple to use for even none tech people. This product is very very small and compact, after testing for a few days it’s been stable, very fast, full of features and all in all very easy to setup for new users with the option for advanced users, if only all routers were this simple for new users and came with half the features this one does, will be ordering the mt300m or n and if this model is anything to go by i will be more than happy with the extra nand flash on the newer model, keep up the great work this model rocks, you can get you bang for you’re buck.

Amazing little box of tricks which i’ve only scratched the surface on using it for a vpn. It’s been om for 2 months without issue, wifi is strong and firmwares not given me any issues so far. As long as your vpn provider supports openvpn (lots do) then it’s just as case of dropping zip file in the box and entering your username and password. Totally happy at love gadgets like this.

Needed a vpn router which runs openvpn and is fairly easy to configure, and cheap. As i spend many months of the year in southern france, but watch uk tv, sometimes the satellite drift means you can go a couple of weeks with just a few channels. I substribe to a vpn (tvwhenaway) which works well on my ipad and mac, but i wanted a vpn router to allow me to use either smart tv or apple tv. I tried the mikrotik router but the burnt-in vpn service was not up to scratch. Then i found this little box. I ordered it and it arrived a few days later. It’s tiny, and runs off a usb power supply. It plugs into my main router with an rj45 cable and is easy to configure from my mac. Tvwhenaway have never been too forthcoming with too much outside the simple configs they provide for browsers and smartphones, but i did manage to extract an openvpn script from the ipad version of openvpn which uploaded into the router successfully.

Works with external usb antennas. Brilliant little router, bought to connect to public wifi in client mode and then share amongst my own devices while travelling. To extend the range i could connect to other wifi networks from, i bought an edup ep-8523 outdoor directional wifi antenna, which comes with a 5 metre usb cable. Point it in the right direction and it’ll connect to distant wifi networks much more reliably. I was delighted to see that when you plug an additional antenna like that into the usb port on this router, the supplied openwrt firmware under “advanced settings” automatically recognises the 2nd radio, installs it and allows me to connect that antenna in client mode to the distant wifi then rebroadcast my own private secured network through the router to share it with all my devices. Had to “disable rebind protection” in the settings, and it’s worked flawlessly ever since. Log in to the distant wifi service once on one device’s browser, then the internet should be available to all. A total triumph, very stable in service ever since, excellent value for money.

A great mini travel router at a good price point ideal for people who travel often. . A great travel router which is powered by mini usb and comes with openwrt out of the box (which many portable routers don’t support) but can install ddwrt if you wish also has openvpn support built in so you can connect to your favourite vpn provider. Also supports microsd cards which are easy to install simply by removing the bottom cover and taking the board out of the case although it can be a little fiddly to get the ports lined up when putting the board back in the case so didn’t bother. You can also use the router as a wireless repeater so if the hotel/apartment you are staying in doesn’t have ethernet cables you can simply connect it to the hotel/apartment’s wifi network and create your own wifi network. Also has great wifi range for such a small device would definitely purchase again.

Excellent little router, very easy to set up, if you’re looking to use it as a wireless repeater or to give wifi to a wired router then it’s pretty much just plug and play. I bought it for open vpn and at first when uploading vpn profiles through the gui, which is easy enough, but it was not popping up looking for my username and password as it should so couldn’t use the profiles, i couldn’t find any info online or on the forums for this problem and it frustrated me for a day or so until i logged into the router from my pc and uploaded the profiles again and up came the dialogue window asking for the log in details, the vpn has worked flawlessly since so the problem just seemed to be with my browser on my android phone blocking the pop up, nothing to do with the router but thought i’d put this in, should anyone else have a similar problem. All in all, delivery was fast, router (i took the one with the extended antennae) has better range than my sky q router, was easy to set up and runs the vpn no problem.

I have this in use as an extra wifi access point in the house and configured it using the ‘open wrt dumb ap’ instructions. Just to be sure i have a crontab that reboots it every morning. It’s been working perfectly fine for me for a good while now.
