Nowadays our life is hardly imaginable without the internet. Over the last decade, its impact has been greater than ever: we pay our bills, lying on a couch, go through online negotiations with our overseas partners, stream HD-films, shop our groceries and clothes. Internet technologies are constantly keeping up with needs of a fast developing society. It is not a luxury to use over 500 Mb / s internet connection and a 1-antenna router is arguably not enough to cope with a growing network load. A new Xiaomi WiFi Router 3 is a powerful router keeping watch of our internet access 24 / 7.
Working at a speed of thought
WiFi 802.11 a/c technology provides a speed jump up to 1167 Mb / s.
Modern technology horizons are expanding. A better quality of internet connection and more advanced network equipment are called for that. Internet audience is also seeing its growth. Those users, who are passionate about online gaming or HD-film streaming, where high-speed internet access is required, are wrestling with a question where to find a gear that does the trick. With a Xiaomi Mi Router 3 one can explore beyond ordinary internet capability and have a frustration-free experience browsing the web.
WiFi reaching every room in the house
It supports up to 126 devices to fulfill the needs of the whole family.
Xiaomi Mi Router 3 acquired four high-gain external antennas, an upgrade that helps to gain broader coverage and faster performance. Four antennas reduce the risk of losing connection, a well-managed simultaneous work of a dual band frequency, 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz, mounts a clearer signal and spreads it at greater distances. This advanced router supplies a non-rockable linkage with external devices, welcoming each member of the family to linger over their favorite internet activity.
4 high-gain omnidirectional antennas
Choosing a router with an antenna can go a long way towards gaining higher connection speed and a more powerful performance. Xiaomi Mi WiFi Router 3 is equipped with four high-gain external antennas to strike with an excellent performance: 2.4 GHz frequency has a gain of 5 dBi and 6 dBi — for 5 Ghz frequency. These numbers fell far short of the previous results. Four antennas give a wider broadcast, and the signal remains high-pitched across the whole area of your house.
Remote control of the router
Mobile app Mi WiFi enables to run router system remotely. It runs on Android and iOS, allows to control router settings through its own network as well as remote internet connection. It is possible to watch over router activity outside the house and adjust a wide list of settings: check and optimize resource usage for a better productivity, block access for unknown users, set switch-off time and other useful things.
Internet access control
An app helps to set time intervals when the connection is open to your children, thus keeping a balance between play time and studying.
Unknown network security scan
If a guest user “knocks on” your network, the system will send a notification message. An access can be granted or closed, sending the user to the black list.
Active user notification
This function allows seeing which member of the family is connected to the network at the moment.
Love watching films online? Pre-download them in HD-quality!
Sometimes running an online film becomes a disaster because of the unstable connection, restricted internet speed or other possible pitfalls, the provider did not mention of. A pre-downloaded movie is a lifeline for a movie fan. Xiaomi Mi Router 3 serves as an intellectual media-center. Just plug a removable hard disc into the router and run Mi WiFi app, which will open access to a broad spectrum of media files, ready to be downloaded. Coming back home switch on your favorite device, whether TV, PC, tablet or phone and enjoy watching the film in high-definition.
Multi-level security approach
Surfing on the net we do not always put our safety first. Every day we give out personal data without thinking if its confidentiality is kept. Credit card numbers, passwords, and other account information search history and much more are an easy target for hackers. Our levity is only a half of the problem, the other half being a vulnerable router operation system. Xiaomi has a strong position in protecting personal information and securing internet access, having developed a 7-level security standard, aimed to protect from diverse threatens existing on the Internet.
- Leak-proof — blocks virus and Trojan requests, safeguards user data.
- Anti-crack — intercepts attempts to crack the router system, keeps router configurations intact.
- Guest network access — monitors and filters the network of suspicious devices. The system will inform of a breach if an “uninvited guest” appears. MAC-address filter recognizes a malware and blacklists it.
- Anti-virus — inspects each downloaded file for viruses.
- Anti-phishing — if a user is about to visit the malicious web-site, a pop-up warning window, containing brief information about it, will appear.
- Anti-hijack — keeps router domain secure, blocking virus and Trojan attacks.
- Anti-malware — prevents from redirecting to unknown sites and spreading of the viruses around the browser.
Restarting minimal to none
Xiaomi has done an ambitious work trying to make the connection more stable and reduce router restarts. Large 128 MB flash is 8 times more efficient than in an ordinary router. An empowerment of this kind ensures stable router performance and allows to connect up to 126 devices.
Xiaomi went into overdrive to give the router an elegant and sleek look — it will blend nicely with surroundings of your room. The router is made of plastic with a matt finish and has only one color variation — white. The coating is scratch-resistant and prevents fingertip appearance. It is compact (195×130×24 mm) and lightweight (around 200 gram).
The back side of the router is equipped with a ventilation grid. The holes in the grid provide cooling at high temperatures so that the device operates stable and fast. You do not need to worry about restarting router system all the time because of overheating.
The front panel of Mi WiFi Router 3 has a three-color LED that reports router status. If a network failure occurs or another device logs in, the indicator will flash with a corresponding color.
