EnGenius ETR9330 Wireless N Travel Router Review


It provides excellent signal strength, coverage and speed. Magnetic base is again very useful and interesting you can stick it anywhere for better reception.

It is very easy to setup and use. It comes with one push setup facility which makes it very easy to configure. If you don’t have any experience with Wi-Fi router this will not disappoint you, you can set it up and use it in minutes.

It comes standard power cord which is easy to find. Power cord is tiny and don’t have bulky transformer. Chances of power cord getting lost are quite high since it is travel router. In that case it is easily replaceable. You can use any standard power cord under the specification. This is auto-volt, meaning it can be plugged into 110- or 220-volt outlet?

The Multiple SSID’s makes it even more useful and unique. It allows 4 separate connections. You can make up-to 4 network and each can have different user credentials. It proves to be very useful when you want separate network for yourself and others.

Size of this router is quite amazing; it is almost equal to size of a cigarette box, bit heavier though. An option to power it through USB would have made it outstanding in its category.

It provides integrated firewall which reduces the risk when we connect to unknown networks.

It is an amazing product in its category. With compare to Apple Airport, EnGenius ETR9330 Wireless N Travel Router comes with lots of features in almost half the price. If you travel a lot or you like such things to be small you should not even think before buy it.

EnGenius EVR100 Wireless N Security VPN Router with Gigabit Switches Review:


EnGenius EVR100 Wireless N Security VPN Router provides best in class speed, signal strength, and coverage area. It uses 802.11/n data link protocol to provide such speed. Speed goes up to 300Mbps with frequency band of 2.4 GHz. Gigabit switches provide even faster wired network. You will need all 8 wires to get 1 Gbps.

As it is specified “EnGenius EVR100 Wireless N Security VPN Router can maintain 5 simultaneous connections.” But it’s not what you get. It provides 5 IPsec connections at a time but only 1 LT2P/IPsec connection. It creates problem since windows uses LT2P/IPsec. This device is great for point to point VPN.

Wi-Fi Multimedia (WMM) support is another good feature. You will not get any lag even when streaming from computer to PS3 or XBOX because of Gigabit wired connection.

After all the value for money features, if they add isolation option configurable for every SSID it would be a great product.

Even with few drawbacks it’s a great product and value for money, you will get a Router & Firewall & Wireless. It’s perfect device for a small Office, a home user, a hotel or a small user group who wants VPN Functionality as well as 802.11n & Gigabit Ethernet.

This is very common question “Why should I use a Router?”


Well apart from all the reasons, you should always use router just to enhance your network security. It’s just like locking your door to prevent any kind of theft.

Router acts as a lock to prevent your system from any internet threat. Router acts like access door to internet for your computer and vise versa. When you initiate any connection to internet you just send command to the router, router gets the data and send back it to you. According to this your computer doesn’t have any IP address on the internet but only on local network. So No system can initiate a connection to your computer from internet side.

So yes, you should definitely use a Router for security purpose.
