[PACKAGE CONTENTS] GL-AR300M (Shadow) mini router (1-year Warranty), USB cable, User Manual.
AR300M is based on an Atheros SOC while the MT300N-V2 is based on Mediatek SOC. This makes the AR slightly more flexible if you are wanting to muck around with say compiling your own firmwares and adding functionality. More "DIYer/industrial" focus.
AR also includes both NOR and NAND memory so theoretically you can have two different firmwares and/or a fall back firmware. Because of this on the AR300 you can run the current testing AdGuardhome firmware (in NAND) which you can't on the Mango.
It also has slightly faster VPN performance than the Mango.
