Nice form factor - but issue with iPad and streaming media.
25 April 2014
Summary: The form factor is very nice - very compact. The configuration software is okay - a little clunky, but it seems to get the job done. The major downside I have found is that it does not work well for streaming media (Hulu, Netflix, HBO Go) to an iPad (in my case an iPad 3). The video frequently stutters and freezes. The transfer rate looks okay. When connecting to a wifi router with 30 mbps, it has a speed of 10 - 15 mbps.
Have a few travel routers, using this one the most

Summary: All travel routers generally seem about the same when you have them in your hotel room for wireless access. I have used Zyxel, TP-Link and this one off and on for a couple of years. I've found I really like the 2nd ethernet port on the unit for connecting media devices to the TV. The hard wired connection seems to have a more consistent throughput, plus I get the advantage of a very basic firewall for my wireless access as well.
Is this a 5-Star product???? (I don't think so!!!!!)

Summary: This product is crap.... I bought two nano routers at the same time: this one and the TP-Link TL-WR702N, which was $10 cheaper. I spent over 2 hours trying to get the TP-Link to work, and I had an incredibly difficult time. But I prevailed, because the WR702N is a well-made high quality product, and the documentation and the web interface that goes along with it are professional and understandable.
Summary: This product is an excellent idea... Unfortunately this particular product is one of the worst I've ever used. I spent HOURS trying to get it to function the way they instructed. If you change ANY setting, it is likely the unit will stop working and report erroneous information about it's status. The reset button doesn't bring it back online, and you need a computer to set it up prior to using it, or to get it back online after it fails. and it will.
Summary: Bought this for splitting Hotel and Airplane Wifi with WISP. I have tested it at home and I am impressed: very easy to set up and better reach than my laptop Wifi adapter! It is tiny - I actually bought it in red so I am less likely to lose it - and it can be powered via USB directly from my laptop. I am excited to take it on the road ...
