  • Frequency: 2.4GHz 2T2R (+ 5GHz PCIe Card addon)
  • Transmission rate: 300Mbps, Max Tx Power: 20dBm

  • Dimensions: 58x58x25 mm, Weight: 39g

Description[edit]

The GL-AR300M is the newest in the line of GL.iNet products as of early 2017.

It is available with internal or external antennas (GL-AR300M-EXT).

It is a compact, squared shaped travel router that runs OpenWrt perfectly.

GL.iNet ships the device with their own version of OpenWrt, but they also offer multiple clean OpenWrt images pre-built for their devices at FW. The AR300M is identical in hardware to the GL.iNet AR300MD, aside from the fact that it does not ship with the 5GHz module installed. Unlike other GL.iNet routers, this model has no PoE support (due to the 5GHz module taking up all the extra space). Power is provided by a Micro USB 5V 1A input.
