Totolink N300RH configuration
The first step in the configuration is to log on to the N300RH interface. Start your web browser and enter the default IP address of the router, 192.168.1.1. Next, in the "User Name" and "Password" sections enter admin / admin.
After logging in we get access to the main configuration page of the N300RH router. In the first section "Status" we can see the approximate configuration of the router. Basically, the device management interface is quite intuitive with a tree-like directory structure.
Of course, the Totolink N300RH also fully supports encryption standards to further protect your data as it travels over the network and limit strangers from taking up your internet bandwidth. If you need a higher level of security, you can configure additional filtering for Wi-Fi access by MAC address (Media Access Control). AMAC addressis a unique sequence of numbers and characters on each network device, so MAC address filtering helps you determine which computer can access your Wi-Fi network and which cannot.
In addition, the N300RH also allows users to use the QoS feature to limit the Internet bandwidth for devices participating in the network. This option is particularly useful when the link is used by too many users at the same time.
The power of the transmitters
The first thing we did was to measure the power of the transmitters. Usually the average oscillated around 19 dBm, but at times we could see a value of 26/27 dBm. We wonder if such big antennas meet the legal requirements for EIRP power
Measurement point 2 - Download 48 Mbps / Upload 62 Mbps
Measurement point 3 - Download 48 Mbps / Upload 80 Mbps
Measurement point 4 - Download 47 Mbps / Upload 43 Mbps
Measurement point 5 - Download 48 Mbps / Upload 50 Mbps
Measurement point 6 - Download 48 Mbps / Upload 50 Mbps
We can safely say that the Totolink N300RH
is a pretty reliable device for small scale local networks with not very high data transfer requirements. The lack of Gigabit Ethernet ports in this router indicates that this device is not the best solution for use in networks with high data transfer requirements. Considering that recently high data transfer rates are commonly required even by home users, not using a Gigabit Ethernet port can be a nuisance.
The simple design of the N300RH along with the user interface makes it an ideal router for undemanding individuals.
