The Huawei HG532 is a router that merges affordability and functionality. This might not look strikingly fancy with its white enclosure, rectangular shape and dimensions of 16.4 x 14.2 x 2.5cms. The plastic casing feels a little flimsy but the functions are very competitive. Since the purpose of the router goes beyond the aesthetics, this one is a smart purchase too.
This router has an exceptional wireless performance with its wireless-N standard that can reach up to 280 Mbps. This may not be the fastest speed these days, especially compared to the much more expensive brands and models. However, this router can do an excellent job in providing network connection needs at home. This is ideal for the typical internet usage like web surfing, chatting and others. It may cause some lag time though if there are too many computers and devices that are connected to the network which are used for media streaming, downloading large files or playing online games. It is also geared with the latest security using encryption in WEP, WPA and WPA2 format.
When it comes to setting up, it only takes about 2 minutes to have this router up and running. It also comes with standard features like 1 USB port and 4 LAN ports. Because of these, it is possible to add cable connected computers to push the speed to its limit, set-up a network printer or add an external hard drive so files can be shared.
