Honor divulged the Router 3 over the mid year, and the organization was thoughtful enough to give us a unit to test. We got the Honor Router 3 to no detriment to us, yet that won’t influence our contemplations about it. The Honor Router 3 is the organization’s first Wi-Fi 6 Plus switch, which Honor has gladly carved onto one of the four reception apparatuses. The Wi-Fi 6 Plus marking is the main issue we have with the plan of the Honor Router 3, as it lessens its moderate look. Fortunately, the marking is a lighter in shading than Honor’s limited time material would recommend.
The matte white case looks extraordinary, as we would see it. There is just one LED on the facade of the gadget, keeping things looking clean. Moreover, the switch has a wedge plan too that makes it look sleeker than numerous other contemporary switches.
Being a Wi-Fi 6-fit gadget, the Honor Router can accomplish move velocities of up to 3,000 Mbps. That is, obviously, a hypothetical most extreme, and its absolutely impossible it can help web paces to those exciting statures. As needs be, our unit kept up a similar 70-80 Mbps normal that our TP-Link Deco network oversees. Be that as it may, one could exploit higher exchange speeds while moving information between two Wi-Fi empowered gadgets, however we only very seldom do this.
The Honor Router 3 has no inward modem however, confining it to being a fundamental double band switch. Consequently, the Router 3 just has four Gigabit Ethernet ports, of which one will fill in as an association between the switch and your modem. Along these lines, the Honor Router 3 doesn’t offer a totally spotless arrangement, yet it does just retail for £72.
Fortunately, setting up the switch is a more clear cycle than it is on numerous switches. Presently, Honor offers two set-up alternatives: the Huawei AI Life application or a web interface. It took us under five minutes to set up our unit, alongside an additional couple of moments spent hanging tight for it to refresh to the most recent programming form. In general, the AI Life application functions admirably, however just in the event that you intend to utilize the Honor Router 3 as a switch.
Shockingly, we experienced some main problems when utilizing the Honor Router 3 as an extender on our TP-Link Deco organization. At first, the Honor Router 3 opened in pleasantly with no unsettling influences. Things without further ado got ugly however, as our PC lost network. Disengaging the Honor Router 3 fixed the issue, yet this continued occurring inside thirty minutes of turning the switch on once more.
Likewise, the Honor Router 3 appeared to influence two of the Deco extenders, notwithstanding not being anyplace close to them. For reasons unknown, these would drop association and required a reset to work once more, yet just with the Honor Router 3 turned on. This likely could be an irregular, yet it underlines that the Honor Router 3 may not be the most ideal choice as an extender to a current organization.
Decision – Great worth, yet it can’t supplant your modem
Regardless, the Honor Router 3 offers a ton at its £72 list cost. Honor is selling the switch for £49.99 until the finish of December as well, which would make it significantly all the more enticing on the off chance that we were hoping to extend the scope of a standard modem.
Getting two for £90 would be a decent arrangement as well, as the second could be utilized to make a cross section organization. So, the Honor Router 3 conveys great incentive for cash, particularly in the event that you are hoping to improve your home organization from a solitary modem.
