DIR-505L + OpenWRT = good

B. Young, Amazon
30 August 2014
  • 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. At my university, I get nearly symmetric 100 mbps up/down when my PC is connected straight through an ethernet cable, but the throughput on the DIR-505L is only about 20/40 mbps (yes--upload speeds are twice as fast as download speeds,...

Good mobile wifi point

Kim G Woodward, Amazon
18 July 2014
  • 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.

Setup is easy - I did it through Safari on my iPad in the hotel. I'm a fan.

Good so far...

Mr. Doh "Doh!", Amazon
23 April 2014
  • 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. To update the firmware, just put the outside switch into "HotSpot" mode and plugged it into the wired ethernet port on my laptop.

Versitile little product, but wish it had a vpn client

John, Amazon
5 October 2013
  • 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.
