Perfect size for carrying in the travel luggage or backpack. Running OpenWRT it is easy to configure but has the option to highly customise through the advanced OpenWRT configuration options. I am running this with OpenVPN and has proven reliable and connects automatically providing a on the go VPN access when connected to cellular, ethernet or Wifi networks. Firmware can also be upgraded.
This router is nice, small not compact with the same great menu system as the other GL-net routers. Easy to set up. Not sure if the aerials help at all but they make it small rather than compact. It worked well but not really offering much more than the cheaper models so giving it 4 rather than 5 stars as there is a bit of a price jump to this model.
