Any reviews on this? ethernet is slow 'Speed of Ethernet Port: 100Mbps '
Edited by: "roll_me_some" 26th Sep 2017
I picked up the 3C before by accident when I was after the normal 3 as the 3 can be flashed with the Padavan firmware (akin to DD/OpenWRT etc). 3C couldn't at the time (still cant I think).

Only 100mb but decent WiFi, I initially configured it as a basic AP but paranoia set in as I couldn't get the Chinese firmware removed so boxed it back up.

More info for the 3: w3bsit3-dns.com/for…801
Those slow ethernet ports concern me, it's all very well and good getting ~600mbit/s over wifi to the router but if I can't get more than 100mbit/s from things on the wired network or the internet connection then what's the point?

As is I can see this being useful as a secondary AP for IoT things like my lightbulbs or maybe a printer, but so would a 150mbit N grade AP which'd be cheaper.
Any idea what kind of performance you'd get when using a VPN on it?

I couldn't flash Padavan either

Like the router, minus having only 2x 100mb ethernets (and Padavan flop)

No idea, I get between 13-15mbs on my more powerful TPLINK router so I assume this to be either around the same or lower.

I did some reading up on VPNs recently and for anything decent (100mbs+) your looking at an i5 and pfsense.

I went a different route and grabbed a gli.net mini router, set the VPN up on that and use it as a VPNd WiFi AP on a separate subnet. Single Ethernet plugs into a download box to keep everything seperate.

Couldnt afford the speed loss from 200mb to 20mbover VPN for my entire network so separating them was easier.

I literally have the same thing. Gli.net router with VPN.

But it is annoying switch the TV between VPN and my internet connection. If I want to stream 4k Amazon or Netflix then I can't do it via VPN
Good router I got one a while ago, great for the money! GearBest are actually pretty good, a lot better than Banggood! Delivery is just over 2 weeks usually.

You obviously haven't ordered a Jumper Ezbook 3Pro. A good number of us are now understanding why GearBest have a bad reputation. To be fair I think all of these Chinese vendors can be very good or very bad. My own experience with Banggood has been very good. There response to a pricing error was better than expected.
Ordered from EU-3 warehouse and it came next day. Set up in 7 minutes with the Mi WiFi app. Simply very, very impressed.

And its on offer again, £23 from EU-3. I paid £25 two days ago (opted to pay a little more for quick delivery).

So far 100% recommend.
