A week ago i upgraded my subscription to 7.2 Mbps and ive noticed that my download rate doesnt exceed 50kb/s with my Merlin XU870, turned out that my card just support up to 3.6Mbps. So i went to Zain branch yesterday and bought the Zain router.


Whats in the box:

– Zain Router.

– Charger.

– Ethernet cable.

– USB cable.

– Manual.


You can see it above its pretty small.


Now it gives me around 130 kb/s when downloading, i know its still not that fast for “7.2 mbps” bs emkafeny esara7aaa 🙂

And for the price it cost me KD100.

    How is the port forwarding in Zain router … i am using the old Wataniya router with Zain connection and i am suffering just to make the linux SSH work through it 🙁

  19. Andrew says:

    I phoned Zain about this and was speaking to a guy who, coincidentally, also uses his own domain name for his personal email. He told me that Zain don’t provide an outgoing SMTP server. So I just signed up for smtp2go.com (US$1.99/month) and it’s working well.

  25. Sagar says:

    Can any one help me out about ZAIN Internet Router…….i want to know what is the cost of the Router.

  26. Tom says:

    Reading the posts above, I see that Zain is using Qualitynet internet service. Is that true? I am a current Qualitynet subscriber, and quite frankly I’ve never been more dissatisfied with anything I’ve bought in my life. They provide terrible serivce, and they’re customer service reps are incompitent. I was thinking about switching to Zain, but if they’re service is provided through qualitynet, I might have to think twice about that. Can anybody tell me more about this?


  27. Yousef says:

    Sager wallah I think 100kd. not sure though.

    Tom I don’t know much about the router, but i’m using the Ego and I really like using it. its fast and the service is always up, till now, aside from the poor coverage in Alzoor, i haven’t encountered any real problem.

  28. Randy Ran says:

    The zain internet router service sucks, it is nowhere near the advertised speeds on a normal day. Upon spending 100kd on the router I got home and was unable to get a signal lock. After spending a whole day between sharq and hawally the firmware needed to be updated. I had to spend 3kd more to have this done, and the router was only 1 day old. Zain is very sketchy in that they are selling routers that have outdated firmware, and won’t connect on the data portion. For 29kd a month plus the outrageous price of the router, internet service in kuwait sucks. Inshalla may work for some, but when you have already paid someone money, that doesn’t cut it. I can’t wait until the oil runs out!

  29. warlock says:
