Summary: Excellent mini-router. I installed OpenWRT on mine (search Google for "D-link DIR-505 support?" forum thread on openwrt.org forums), and it makes for an excellent little travel router. My only complaint is that the throughput isn't great.
Summary: Even though there are some reported security issues with this device, it did come in handy when I went to the Canadian side of Niagra Falls. Our hotel only allowed for 2 wifi hookups in our room, having this device allowed all three of us to have multiple wifi connections outward.
Summary: Okay, got this for a trip to Europe coming up this summer, so that we could book places with internet jacks but no WiFi, and I could still use my iPad. So my objective was to set it up as a wireless Access Point after updating the firmware.
Summary: I bought this to travel with my ipad and galaxy tab. The internet connection was full wireless signal opposed to minimal without it. It's easy to set up and use. I also used the USB port for charging.
Versitile little product, but wish it had a vpn client

Summary: The is a great portable product. I routing use this when travelling to create a personal hotspot from a single login to a hotspot service. My only wish to add would be a vpn client to encrypt all information from the hotspot back to my home server.
