Xiaomi R3P Review

The interface HP usually incorporates into printers in this range is intuitive. Just as if it were a mobile phone, we can navigate through its different menus, with blocks for printing, copying, or scanning in an obvious and differentiated way. In addition, it also incorporates a notification panel where we can have quick access to the alerts or problems that the system finds.
The experience expands if we also use the HP Smart app, which provides a good number of functions if we use the printer from the mobile phone or tablet.

In the printer configuration section, we can find many useful options, both for printing and accessibility and connectivity. Here we can find everything from maintenance options such as knowing the ink level, cleaning the cartridges, or aligning them, to programming settings for the silent mode, being able to choose the hours in which we want the printer to work in this mode.


To perform this configuration, we have used the Mi Wi-Fi application and the router’s configuration web page ( In this way, we were doing things indistinctly.

The first thing we have done is connect the RJ-45 cable from our internet provider’s router to the WAN port of our Xiaomi R3P. Once connected and turned on with the Mi Wi-Fi application (much better than in the browser in this case), we clicked on “Add device,” and the Xiaomi router detected us.

Once detected, we have had to advance several screens and configure the access point’s name and password. At this point, it also allows us to define a password for the router administrator user.

To enter the router configuration, you have to access it by putting the route in the browser: I recommend doing it from the Google Chrome browser to be able to translate the page.

Once it has been configured with the application, we already have the two new access points created (the 2.4GHz and the 5GHz). In my case, I have called them the same as my provider’s router so that the Wi-Fi network’s name does not change and I do not have to configure the passwords again.

For this reason, later, I entered the router that my internet provider provided me at the address (it can be seen under the router), and I disabled the Wi-Fi. In this way, only the new Xiaomi router will give Internet.

Network 31 0

However, having the same name for the Wi-Fi network has not helped since the network created by default has been, something that we have never done voluntarily.

*(Perhaps there are people who with this configuration are enough and do not need to follow the tutorial because we would already have full connectivity).

The problem is that the devices that I connected to the Wi-Fi were in the network. With this new configuration, another new network was created for me (, with two DHCP servers distributing IP addresses indistinctly. This caused each device to connect to different networks and have no visibility of each other (and I didn’t want this).


As we have already mentioned, it is a device that only includes instructions in Chinese, but this is not a problem because the installation and configuration are pretty simple.

We must carry out this process using the Xiaomi MiWiFi App application from a mobile phone. We can download this application for both iOS from the App Store and the Google Play store for Android.

Both are in English and are very intuitive. Still, there are translated applications on the Internet for those who want to make sure they do the process well (either out of curiosity or because they don’t trust this tutorial).

Registering in the application is unnecessary, but this will allow you to have more control over the router and who connects to it.

Design and Screen

This router has an elegant and discreet design made of aluminum and plastic in matte gray. Its dimensions are 195mm wide, 145.6mm long, and 66mm high, which makes its weight 897g. It is significantly larger than the Xiaomi Mi Router 3.

The body of the device is metallic on its long and tall sides. On the 145.6mm side, it has some ventilation slits. In the upper part comes the Xiaomi logo, and in the back, it has four quickly oriented omnidirectional antennas with which the router grows up to 208.33 mm high.

The Gigabit WAN connection, 3 Gigabit LAN ports, and a USB 3.0 socket are on this back. In addition, it also includes a reset button and power connection.

Xiaomi R3P Review : Power and Hardware

One of the main novelties of this device is that it adds MU-MIMO (multiple users, multiple input, and multiple outputs) technologies that allow a Wi-Fi router to communicate with multiple devices simultaneously. This reduces the waiting time between connected devices to receive the wireless signal and significantly increases the network’s speed.

This feature is highly recommended for users who have many devices connected and use them simultaneously (laptops, mobile phones, or IoT intelligent devices).

It uses the IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n/ac and IEEE 802.3/3u/3ab protocols for the 2.4GHz and 5GHz channels. And since it is challenging to find unsaturated media in residential buildings, this router can transmit through 13 tracks in the 2.4GHz band and another 13 in the case of 5GHz.

This 5GHz band avoids interference between devices and provides excellent signal stability, even though the range is usually shorter.

In my case, this is what I was looking for as I have many devices connected to my Wi-Fi network and was having connection issues. In addition, he was also looking to boost the Wi-Fi signal of the internet provider’s router, and he believed that this router could be the perfect substitute for the one he had.

What has given me the most problems has been the router’s Chinese interface (even though firmware in English can be added to it, or that can be done with the Mi Wi-Fi application). In addition, as I have already mentioned, I have not been able to configure the subnet I wanted either.

After several weeks of use, I have noticed quite an improvement compared to my provider’s router and Apple’s. On the one hand, I have seen that the signal range is somewhat higher, both for the 2.4GHz band and the 5GHz band, reaching my room without any problem (more than 12 meters away and going through a wall).
