GL.iNet GL-X750 4G LTE OpenWRT Router $180.20 (Free Shipping) @ GL Technologies Amazon AU

70
MBGKWJ9C

Another Ozbargain special from GL.iNet

This time the GL-X750 (Spitz) 4G LTE Router $180.20 shipped from Amazon.au. 15% off normal price Don't forget cashback

This unit is preconfigured with the Quectel EP06-E (Cat 6 support) mini-PCIe LTE modem card (you can swap out with other mini-PCIe cards however you will have to diassemble, be VERY careful with the uFL connectors (don't ask me how I know 😉) and void your warranty. May be useful if you need to change bands/country)

The EP06-E has band support for all the Aussie Telcos: FDD LTE: B1/B3/B5/B7/B8/B20/B28/B32 TDD LTE: B38/B40/B41 WCDMA: B1/B3/B5/B8 (yes even the "illusive" band 28 (700Mhz) 😁 )

No internal battery option but you can run off an appropriate power bank/car adapter (12v/1.5A) with the appropriate connector cable (USB A to barrel connector)

2 external 5 DBi LTE antenna with standard SMA connectors so you can easily replace the antennae if required. 2 DBi WiFi antennae are internal.

Does everything the other GL.iNet range do so can still be used in a WISP repeater situation but with the inclusion of the build in 4G LTE modem for connectivity.

My mini review here.

Note: This prebuilt configuration does NOT include the optional Built-in Bluetooth or Zigbee Module

  • Can the pre-installed module be replaced/upgraded later on with a 5G capable one?

  • +1

    I'd assume so as long as it's minipcie and OpenWRT supports it and you replace the 4g antennae. I'm seeing if I can get an answer from GL.iNet. 😊

    • Awesome, thanks buddy!

        @episys

        Ok you'll learn never to listen to me (that's what the wife says about me all the time) 😂. GL.iNet support advises that you cannot upgrade to 5G later down the track. Sorry 😔

        • Ha!! All good, thanks again man. I'm still probably going to consider it because it's a great price, and I purchased the MT300N-V2 and AR750S-EXT a little while back and have been extremely happy with both.

  • Do you reckon this would serve as a good out and about travel WiFi hotspot? Or would the GL-MiFi be better suited?

    • +2

      Depends on what you mean by travel I guess. Out and about or just being in a hotel/AirBNB? The GL-MiFi has the inbuilt battery but with an appropriate powerbank/car adapter and cable you can run the X750 on the go. Otherwise you just need a power point for both. The X750 is really only slightly "bigger" because of the external removeable LTE antennae but lighter because it doesn't have the built in battery. Very quick and dirty size comparison photo here

      Personally, with the testing I've done (Telstra,Optus and Vodafone) the performance of the X750 is much better, I think because of the external LTE antennae and the AC750 WiFi (even if both units are fitted with the EP06-E modem card). My personal "recommendation" would be the X750.

      Hope this helps.

      Disclaimer: There's so many variables with LTE speed (tower distance, bands, band aggregation, congestion etc) that YMMV 😁

      • Thanks for much for the insights!

  • Hi Limbot
    Thanks for the code
    Disappointing to read your notes re. not having external WiFi antennae.
    Removable external antennae are always an advantage.
