Product descriptions for GL-MT300N-V2:
GL-MT300N-V2 mini travel router is the upgraded version of GL-MT300N.
It is powered by MTK 7628NN 580Mhz SoC with a better Wi-Fi and a faster OpenVPN encryption.
Memory increases from 64MB to 128MB. Wi-Fi Converter: Wi-Fi is extremely popular but still may not be available at anywhere.
If you are still using a wired network at hotels or cafes, this mini router is able to convert it to a wireless network for sharing the Wi-Fi with all your devices. Even in places like cafes or restaurants with Wi-Fi, it may not be a good idea to expose your devices to the public network directly.
This router converts a public Wi-Fi to your own Wi-Fi with a firewall and then works as an agent for securer surfing. The agent connects all your devices when switching to a new Wi-Fi. You don’t have to input password for each of your devices.
The router is also able to convert your phone tethering, or 3G/4G USB modems into a private Wi-Fi.
Portable Travel Mate: The router is lightweight, pocket friendly, and portable. It can be plugged into any laptops, power banks, or 5v DC adapters for power supply. Open Source and Programmable: OpenWRT is pre-installed and backed with a repository of 4000+ software packages. Pre-installed with an OpenVPN client, it works with 20+ VPN service providers.
Tor firmware is available for download. The firmware is under active development and can be updated online with one click. Larger Storage and Extendibility: The router is equipped with 128MB RAM and 16MB Flash, which can be further extend using external USB sticks. There are 2 Ethernet ports, 1 UART, and 4 GPIOs available for hardware DIY hobbyists. It is an ideal portable gateway for IoT (internet of things) development.
