Model: Archer MR200
Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: 0.9.1 1.2 v004a.0 Build 180502 Rel.53881n

Hi i bought this router 2016, for a short time the tower nearby got upgrade to 4g+ and have a transfer rate 330mbits.

 

The question is even if the router has a limit of 150mbits in download and 50 mbits in upload can he recieve 4g+ and get atleast the full 150 mbits and better ping ? Or im only able to connect to 4g even if i use a external lte antenna wich support 4g+ ?

 

In case if not able to support 4g+ does a custom rom could fix that ?

Archer MR200 is a 4G router, not 4G+; So it can negotiate the sim card up to 4G only. Now only the Archer MR600 is a 4G+ router. 

 

The antenna is used to receive/transfer signal, to some extent, it is good for the performance of the router. While the most important part is the router itself. 

 

Good day.

Hello, it is related to the hardware of the MR200, the antenna which supports 4G+ won't affect it. 

 

Below is the network type supported by MR200 V1.

Network Type: 4G: FDD-LTE Cat4 (800/900/1800/2100/2600MHz) TDD-LTE (2300/2600MHz) 3G: DC-HSPA+/HSPA+/HSPA/UMTS (900/2100MHz) 2G: EDGE/GPRS/GSM (850/900/1800/1900MHz)

 

May it help and have a nice day.

@Kevin_Z Hello and thanks for your answer. Sorry i didnt understand correctly your point.

The Tower send 4g+ with the same frequencies 800mhz, 1800mhz and 2100mhz. According to wiki 4g+ should be backward compatible to 4g.

Can i get then the more stability and reduced latency from 4g+ over 4g even then my maximal download speed is locked at 150mbits because of cat4 ?
