I am thinking of upgrading my wireless/ethernet router/repeater, as mine is older technology (slow). Was thinking of this:

https://www.aliexpress.com/item/TOTOLINK-A3002RU-AC1200-Wireless-Dual-Band-Gigabit-Router/32701126467.html

...but, what do they mean by "US plug with box" and "US plug without box"? It is probably obvious... does the meaning jump out at anyone?


Got up this morning, and suddenly realised what it means. That link is the manufacturer's sales outlet, so they are optionally selling it without the fancy box that these things normally come in. Saves them a couple of dollars.

That's my reasoning anyway.


I ordered one of these:

https://www.aliexpress.com/item/A2004NS-AC1200-Wireless-Dual-Band-Gigabit-Router-with-VPN-and-USB-function/32539330540.html

Fast wi-fi and gigabit ethernet. Very cheap, cost US$41.15 including delivery to Australia, and an AU (Australian) plug. Ordered the "with full package", so I guess that is the same as "with box".

Aliexpress Standard Shipping, which I think is registered, courier delivered.

I looked at some reviews, some criticisms, but then it is much cheaper than others.

I've noticed that sometimes they don't put in software and instruction booklet.

Not that unusual nowadays when sales are made while translation and testing fixes to the software are still being worked out. I actually prefer this to getting faulty software/unreadable manuals.
