4 out of 5 eggsGood Router; Be Prepared ...

This review is from: Loftek MW2-21 Multi-functional 3-in-1 Wireless Router - Support Wireless Storage and charging function, Pocket Size, Support Router/AP/Client/Bridge/Repeater Modes, 150Mpbs, USB Powered - Black

Pros: Very capable, tiny little router that can do almost any network related challenge you can throw at it!
A self powered:
- Wireless Router
- Wireless Access Point
- Wireless Client Router
- Network Access Storage via uSD or USB
- USB 3G Internet Share?!
AND a power jumper for your phone!

Cons: Be prepared to get your hands dirty to get some of these features to work, particularly the wireless client router mode.
The unit does NOT support wireless bridging or repeater mode, depending on the hardware configuration you get. Mine did not.
MicroSD NAS can become unstable when transferring large files (>10MB).

Other Thoughts: Research "openWRT", and remember "port 8181" in order to get the absolute most out of this thing. You could get it doing things Loftek never pictured when they made it.
The difficulty in use and missing features are worth cutting one egg.
The fact that I STILL LOVE IT anyways is worth keeping the other four.

4 out of 5 eggsSo far so good.

This review is from: Loftek MW2-21 Multi-functional 3-in-1 Wireless Router - Support Wireless Storage and charging function, Pocket Size, Support Router/AP/Client/Bridge/Repeater Modes, 150Mpbs, USB Powered - Black

Pros: -Decent signal range.
-Worked (mostly) out of the box, despite what the instructions lead you to believe.
-Paired up with a decent file manager program.
-Good battery life. Used 8 hours of streaming music, plus partial battery charge to ensure it works, and device still reads 75% charge.
-Paired up with the file manager on first try, didn't HAVE TO go through all of the setup that it leads you to believe if you're just file sharing from it. Still need to if you're setting up wifi.

Cons: -Outdated instructions, neither website for program manager software works (iphone or android), just search app store for it.
-***Specifies in instructions but nowhere else "Only small size (<10MB) can be operated on TF card DO NOT read, write, copy, paste large size files or errors may happen."
-Super short usb cable included
-Does not say anywhere what format your drives or cards need to be to work with device, luckily it just plain worked with micro SD from old phone.
-Signal freezes from time to time but that may be my phone trying to put wifi to sleep so I'll have to check settings.

Other Thoughts: My story: I own a Nexus 5. Bought an OTG thumb drive that doesn't work correctly with Nexus 5, then lost the d@m& thing besides. Wanted a battery backup, and had received one of those little 2200mAh cylinder things that my power hungry phone literally ignores when I plug in (not kidding, and i know the 2200 work because it works fine on my old phone).
Bought this to use as a batter backup and mobile file storage. Since Nexus 5 doesn't take any form of SD card, I wanted more storage, although based on what the instructions say I guess I'll have to keep it at just music because it may not be able to stream anything more than a gif file!
Enter this nifty device. I pop in a 32 gb microSD, fill it with music, and now I can listen to it for days on end because I can just recharge the battery with it if it gets too low... Plus I can plug in a thumb drive to make a 6 month long playlist!
