3 out of 5 eggsdoes most - but not all it delivers

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 - White

Pros: This is a versatile item! Small size, fast wireless (B/G/N), and conveniently powered - just off a micro USB port.

This has a good battery (5200MAh), and can connect to a computer using a network cable instead of wireless only, so you could pick up a wireless signal, then connect to the computer via Ethernet. Alternatively, if you want to connect the router to a network connection, then you can connect to the network wirelessly. Either way.

It is supposed to be able to do 3G mobile internet but didn't check it against that functionality.

This is running some flavor of DD-WRT, so in theory you should be able to trick it out. Haven't tried since I haven't used DD-WRT in the past.

It also is supposed to be able to do fileserving...which leads to my two cons:

Cons: 1. I could not get this thing to work while it was charging. It did not send a wireless signal, nor could I get it to do any fileserving when it wascharging. The only way I could get it to work was when I had it running off battery - which makes this much less useful to me. It means I can only use it for however long the battery lasts - rather than being able to leave it charging and be able to use it continuously.

2. Although it read a 8GB microSD card, it didn't read the USB drive that was plugged into the port.

Those two things, if fixed, would make this an easy 5-egg review.

Other Thoughts: I don't know if I got a bad unit or if there's something else going on - but it would be the real deal if the fileserving and network worked. I've seen accounts of people saying they use it in the car while plugged into a USB car adapter, so I'm thinking it should work while it's charging. Could I be wrong?
