As described in our introduction 19 people took the effort to fill in the LAN mode issues survey. This what we can tell in general about them:
The hardware the respondents use are as follows:
- 11 people user a main router (57.9%). Ages of those routers: half year, year and older or equal to 3 years.
- 6 people use an additional router for their eWeLink supported devices (31.6%). Ages of those additional routers: half year, year and older or equal to 3 years (33.3% each).
- 2 people use an additional accesspoint for their eWeLink supported devices (10.5%). Ages: a year and 2 years.
Additional routers are being used in various ways: in bridge mode, as accesspoint and just normal router mode.
There were no participants using a mobile hotspot.
Of all routers/accesspoints involved TP-Link appears to be the most popular. Probably because of its lower pricetag in general. This is an overview of the counts:
Of the 11 people who use a main router for their eWeLink supported devices:
- 8 people use a router bought by themselves (72.8%).
- 3 people use a router provided by their ISP (27.3%).
eWeLink supported devices
The amount of connected eWeLink supported devices varies per user. Most popular amounts are 15 and 20 devices (each 3 users) followed by 5 and 6 devices (each 2 users). One user has 60 devices. The lowest amount reported in the survey was 4 devices. The average is 15 devices.
