- Service duration may vary due to different user environments. The intuitive screen display makes it easy to stay within your data budget and avoids going over the monthly data cap. The device also displays other much more intuitive information of the device’s operating status, such as battery life, signal strength, Wi-Fi status, connected users and more. With the menu button you can quickly change network type, data roaming and frequency band, view password and network name directly on the device.
TP-link 3G/4G modems and routers: Routers and modems are two of the most common computer peripherals, yet many people do not know the function of each one. While the two devices may look similar, they each serve a different purpose. Fortunately, the functions of the two devices are pretty easy to understand. A router is a small box that allows multiple computers to join the same network while early routers only had Ethernet ports for wired connections, most modern routers provide wireless connectivity as well. “Wireless routers” often have one or two moveable antennas, though some models keep the antennas inside the enclosure. Wireless routers allow multiple computers and other devices, such as smartphones and tablets, to join the same network. Connecting to a router provides access to a local network (LAN), but it does not necessarily provide access to the Internet. In order for devices on the network to connect to the Internet, the router must be connected to a modem. Therefore, most routers have a specific Ethernet port that is designed to connect to the Ethernet port of a cable or DSL modem. A modem is a device that provides access to the Internet. The modem connects to your ISP (internet service provider), which typically provides either cable or DSL (digital subscriber line) Internet service. Cable modems have a coaxial (or “coax”) connection, which is the same type of connector found on a TV or cable box. This connects to a cable port on the wall. DSL modems have a telephone connector, which connects to a telephone socket on the wall. By connecting your modem to your router (instead of directly to a computer), all devices connected to the router are connected to the modem, and therefore, the Internet. The router provides a local IP address (internet protocol) to each connected device, but they will all have the same external IP address, which is assigned by your ISP.
