The Unboxing of Mi Wi-Fi Router Mini

As soon as I got my router out of the parcel, my Lover Mi Bunny quickly rushed over and requested a few photos with the router. (I do have a Sitting Bunny, but it was there sitting and refused to budge.).

I got Mi router with additional package of Mi Bunny, that I made some shots with it.

A nice eco-friendly box, and Mi Wi-Fi router, AC adaptor 100-240V and instruction manual in it.

At the rear of the device there are two LAN and one WAN sockets, USB port and AC adaptor jack.

The body of Mi router is slim and stylish. Acute angles are the feature of the device.

Two antennas are moving up and down, and Mi Bunny decided to do some exercises.

The old Belkin router activated an alert when a new router came beside it. Hovewer, I decided to use the, both.

Then I plug 1TB Seagate Wireless Plus in the USB port of Mi router as the local cloud data storage.
