You can also share a cable or ADSL modem’s connection via the router’s Ethernet port, use it as a Wi-Fi bridge to connect a wired Ethernet device to your wireless network, or use it as a wireless repeater for another router. You set different networking modes via the TP-Link TL-MR3020 Router’s built-in web-based interface or the slider switch on the side of the unit, depending on the mode you need.
The TP-Link TL-MR3020 Router is packed with features that we take for granted on regular household routers but wouldn’t necessarily expect on a compact travel router; there’s a DMZ and port forwarding, a configurable firewall, user-selectable Wi-Fi modes, and a range of wireless security modes including WPA2. The TP-Link TL-MR3020 Router has a well-designed and uncluttered web interface and each option is explained in a helpful information pane to the right of the screen. Altering settings on the MR3020’s web interface is always easy, even when you’re viewing it on the screen of a smartphone.

TP-Link TL-MR3020 Router Review: Speed
The MR3020 isn’t intended to be used over a wide area and this is borne out by our test figures, which showed a very respectable 41.3 Mbit/s transfer speed at a range of one meter and a lowly 4.5 Mbit/s at 10 meters. In comparison, the Go baby mobile Dongle Dock portable router provided 16.9 Mbit/s at one meter and 8.9 Mbit/s at 10 meters, which means that the TP-Link TL-MR3020 Router is the better option if your Wi-Fi users are going to be relatively close to the unit, as they would be in a hotel room. Neither unit passed our 25-meter test, which is unsurprising considering their small size and integrated antennae.
