Feed your inner geek some (more) Mango :)

Cashback with Cashrewards or Shoprewards

After the success of their Ozbargain postings , GL-iNet has reached out to me to post a new deal with discount code for 15% off normal price. Valid 10:00 19/11/19 to 18:00 25/11/19.

IMHO their functionality certainly punches above their size.

The GL-MT300N-V2 supports full OpenWRT, multiple modes and the USB 5V 1A power input gives you heaps of options to power (from notebook, phone charger, powerbank) for remote applications.

Check previous posts for usage cases, questions etc.

Caveat: Not going to be the fastest nor have the best WiFi range and only supports 2.4 Ghz (n). Need to take into account for usage cases.

Gl.iNet GL-MT300n-V2 (Mango) Normally $28.83 with coupon $24.51

    Someone suggested on a previous post that an android phone does the exact same thing as this… can anyone comment on that also what about the effective wifi range if you are doing a wifi bridge?

      Currently there is no stock of the AR750s at Amazon.au but this should be replenished in the next couple of days at which time they'll organise another deal!!!

    Using this right now in Bali. Mainly for VPN protection. Some hotels also limit the number of devices, so this is useful for that.

    So the hotel wifi in the room I'm in is poor- but I've plugged this into the ethernet port and now getting excellent speeds.

    First time I'm using it - for the size and price, highly recommend it.

    What can the slate do over this? (I'm assuming better WiFi coverage?)

      Slate has:
      "Better":
      Better processor (for VPN "processing", speed)
      Dual band WiFi (WISP repeat on one band and WiFi LAN on the other and you don't lost half your bandwidth like WISPing on a single band)
      SD Card slot for shared media
      Gigabit Ethernet ports
      External Antennae

      "Worse":
      Bigger physically
      Uses 5V/2A compared to 5V/1A
      More expensive :)

      Off to Bali myself on Friday and taking the Slate for "home" (WiFi, VPN, Chromecast, media storage) and the Mango for "out and about" :)

    How good is the VPN speeds? I would be interested to know if anyone tried Nord or Ivacy or Surfshark VPN on this and its speeds. Thanks in advance for the reply ;)

      I'm running express vpn - def a bit slower that without, but still very usable

      •  

        I'm getting 8 down 6 up with vpn.

        55 down and I've forgotten the upload without vpn - so a significant hit using openvpn.

        Still fine for general browsing

      I've used with Nord before and was getting (off the top of my head) around 7-8Mbps. With Slate I get around 12-15 Mbps I think.

    •  

      Pretty crap OPENVPN speeds to be honest, but wireguard is running 100% at speed.

        Constraints on the hardware. Waiting for commercial VPN provider to offer a true and tested Wireguard (derivative) solution.

        Gl.iNet has just released the Brume for optimised VPN performance but it's more an edge device than an endpoint device (currently no WiFi). Could be a Brume + Mango solution :)

        Need to do some testing to see how much better it is but of course it comes at a $$$ cost :)

        •  

          With this device, I'm using Mullvad Wireguard & Multihopping two servers. I have a 100Mbps connection and pull 92Mbps using that method.

          With this device on Openvpn it was giving me 10Mbps

          Can't complain :)

  •  

    Great bit of kit, use it as a wifi extender myself for work purposes.

  •  

    Anyone used one of these with 6+ concurrent devices? Was wifi stable?
    Thinking of hotel on holidays with the whole family accessing. Not asking about total throughput, just holding multiple connections up well.
    Looks like a good enough option (without needing the AR750 specs)

      I'm currently house sitting and have had about 10 devices (phones, notebooks, Chromecast, Android TV) attached to the Mango. When I moved house I just re-configure the Mango to the new house WiFi and everyone's device is up and running. So wouldn't see a problem. Just remember from a bandwidth perspective if you connect via WISP repeater you effectively half your bandwidth.

      •  

        Yep, thanks. Not expecting multiple 4k video streams, just stable internet. Cheers.

    Currently using this device in Japan and love it. Plugs into the hotel room ethernet with better speeds then the patchy WIFI. Open VPN is about 10Mbps, which I understand is a hardware limitation. I use PIA so no wireguard otherwise would use that. Don't think Slate would do much more for me with my use, which is a private Wifi device for use within the hotel room, with 4-5 devices max. and internet browsing.

    •  

      Can see dual band wifi being useful if being used as repeater

      •  

        Even with halved bandwidth of 150mbps, I think that would still be fine for what I use it for. Limited by VPN speeds any way.
