Things We Did Not Like About The Mi Router 3C

Only Two LAN Ports

Mi Router 3C features only two LAN ports. Though it might not be a deal breaker for standard users, small offices with multiple desktops need a router with more LAN ports. To put in perspective, D-Link DIR-816 comes with 4 LAN ports.

Single Band Support Only

Mi Router 3C operates only in 2.4GHz Wi-Fi band. Support for 5GHz high-speed Wi-Fi band could have been icing on the cake. Streaming digital media on the 5GHz band is a breeze. Nevertheless, 2.4GHz should be suffice for normal users.
