360 Whole House Routing Review: A Stable And Secure Home Gateway


The official issuance of a 5G commercial license in June will usher in a new era for the 5G-based Internet of Things. In the Internet of Everything era, gateway control is just as important as 5G network and terminal products. The importance of the router to the IoT is self-evident, as it is the core of the home network, whether it is data sending and receiving, gateway security will directly affect the user’s privacy. In fact, the popularity of smart home appliances and security products has led to increased user demand for home router performance.

Users’ expectations for routers have shifted from good signal and low latency to a new emphasis on security, artificial intelligence, and other features. Furthermore, due to the large area and leapfrog houses, decoration, and other factors, the placement of the router, signal stability is a major concern for users.

360 in December 2 released a new Mesh distributed router – 360 whole house routing Sky Dome series, providing dual mother and child mother two sets of options, with the goal of creating a network home environment that can achieve full coverage and seamless roaming. I received the 360 whole house routing sub mother version at the beginning of the month, which consists of a “mother” route 360M5 and a “child” route 360M50; dual mother is made up of two 360M5.

The outer packaging for 360 whole house routing continues to use the minimalist design concept, with the front of the box printed with the appearance of the mother and son routing design; the back introduces the letter router features, specifications, and configuration. The box includes a mother route, a child route, two 12V/1A power adapters, a network cable, and quick installation instructions. 360 whole house routing of the mother router in three circumference than the sub-router, the top of each Colink pairing button, convenient for users to add a new router can be quickly paired; the bottom of the router label indicates the name of the host corresponding, model, and so on, where the mother route is 360M5, the sub-router is 360M50 The bottom and base are surrounded by design vents, and the top-shaped gap to form air ducts, which can effectively accelerate the exchange of air between the interior and exterior, reducing the temperature of the host operation. The parent route 360M5 provides three Gigabit network ports, all of which can be used as WAN/LAN interfaces, as well as a 12V power supply socket and a reset button; the subroutes only have a LAN interface, a The 360M5 main route employs an automatic identification design, which eliminates the need for users to distinguish between WAN and LAN ports, simplifying installation and maintenance; additionally, the external adapter can effectively reduce the internal heat of the router and improve its stability when in use.

Hardware and Application I believe that many users do not pay close attention to the router’s hardware configuration, but these unnoticed chips frequently have a direct impact on the use of experience. The 360M5 router can automatically identify the access network environment, regardless of user adjustments, and can quickly enter the work mode; 360M50 sub routing only provides a LAN port, factory has been preset, just plug the network cable, will automa After pairing and normal networking, the indicator below the child route changes from red to green; if the child route is too far away from the signal, the indicator changes to orange, and the user must choose the child route placement again. 360 provides the “360 Home Firewall” mobile app for whole house routing, which can be equipped with a full set of routing functions. After registering or logging in according to the prompts, the phone can add the router after connecting to the router’s Wi-Fi signal, which is very simple and practical.

360 provides a one-click switch function that copies the PPPoE account password, wifi name and password of the original router to the new router to solve the problem of replacing a live router.

360 Whole House Routing, as a company dedicated to network system security protection, employs hardware and software integrated security protection to provide users with greater privacy. Furthermore, 360 Whole House Routing can provide simpler and more robust applications for IoT products. I chose a distance of more than 10 meters from the door and a balcony for testing; the office door network signal is strong, Internet access is available, and video games are not a problem.

There is consistent network coverage in all rooms and areas throughout the office, resulting in an excellent performance network.

In terms of broadband speed measurement, the average network speed reached 10.7MB/s after the 100 megabit fiber used in the office was forwarded through the router using the 360 Home Firewall’s built-in network speed measurement function. In terms of signal strength comparison between actual zones, the phone can automatically connect to the appropriate band and corresponding route based on the router signal to achieve the best Internet experience. The switching time of the network is around 50ms in the actual results of the distributed test, and there is no obvious packet loss when switching. Review summary: 360 whole house routing stability performance is quite good, the signal expansion of the sub routing network signal coverage without dead ends, the use of the process of switching smooth and fast, only 360 provides sub and dual mother set, in terms of independent collocation needs to provide more options.

Starting with the security of 360 in the privacy of the whole house route is also quite outstanding, each terminal abnormal access can be issued in a timely manner to warn, with 360 rich only home products, to bring users a richer use of the scene, so that it is not only a router, but also the core of the smart home.

360 offers the “360 Home Firewall” mobile app for whole-house routing, which can be outfitted with a comprehensive set of routing functions. After registering or logging into the account as directed, the phone can add the router after connecting to the router’s Wi-Fi signal as directed, which is very simple and practical. 360 provides a one-click switch function that can copy the account password, wifi name, and password of the original router’s PPPoE to the new router to solve the problem of replacing the live router.

Following the completion of the pairing, the sub-route, regardless of signal quality, has a very good broadband connection rate. I chose to test at a distance of more than ten meters from the door, on the balcony; the office door network signal is strong, Internet access is available, and video games are not a problem. The entire office environment has stable network coverage, providing excellent network performance.
