Hardware Upgrade

Our current portable travel router hardware is based on TPLINK MR11U or MR3040 which may change in the future. The stock hardware of these routers neither has enough RAM nor enough flash storage to run our customized firmware. We upgrade each unit manually to increase the RAM and the Flash. We also over-clock the stock router to make it faster without it losing stability. Here are some comparison numbers:
    Feature Stock MR11U/MR3040 Custom Router CR11U-16
    RAM 32MB 64MB
    Flash 4MB 16MB
    CPU Clock 400Mhz 462.5Mhz
    DDR 400Mhz 462.5Mhz
    AHB 200Mhz 231.25Mhz
    BogoMIPS 266.24 307.20

  • Upgraded router is 15% faster than stock router
  • Upgraded router has twice the RAM
  • Upgraded router has 4 times the Flash storage
