HIGHLY recommend this very inexpensive but high quality TP Link device
31 December 2014
Summary: Bought for hotel use, was shocked at how perfectly it worked, Plug and Play. Was able to dramatically increase range and throughput of wireless signal by connecting TP-Link router to the hotel's wired ethernet, as opposed to using hotel's wireless. Also, I was able to connect both an Apple TV and Roku 3 to the hotel's HD TV with no problems. HIGHLY recommend this very inexpensive but high quality TP Link device.
Excerpt: This item is ideal for travel to establish a Wi-Fi network for multiple devices. It is compact, easy to set up, and use. It would probably be good to carry an electrical extension cord in case an AC outlet is already full where the ethernet connection is.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast Connection Speed, Secure Connection
Summary: Perfect little router and simple to use. I'm not sure what some of these reviews meant by too hard to configure. I pulled it out of the box, plugged it in, connected a Ethernet cable and went to my laptops wifi. It was listed under TPLINK - . I clicked connect it asked for a password so I looked in the box and there was a card with login info and the WIFI password. I typed the password, it connected and I was able to surf the internet in less than 2 mins.
Summary: 10+ Years of professional tech experience speaking here. These are the real deal. I bought these because an application requiring long distance run (300+ feet) with ethernet over powerline was failing. This was a last resort for me. I have two of these, one repeating the main router 150 feet away, through 2 walls, and another at about another 130 feet (connected to the repeater) that is a wireless client providing an ethernet bridge to a IP camera.
Summary: My ISPs support line cant help me with problems that I have with using it with their cable modem ARRIS, but after I set it to router mode and switch it to clone MAC address of my PC, all working well now.
Summary: This does everything I needed it to do. All I wanted was something small that would generate a wireless signal for a cheap price. I don't know if the MBPS are high or low, I don't care as long as there is a strong signal in my house. And it covers everywhere, including outside on my deck! Set up was so easy it was sad. Just plug it in and sign on to the 'setup site' and just set it to what you want it to do and make your ID and password.
Summary: I took this on a recent trip to Japan, where every hotel we stayed in had both wireless and ethernet connections. I just plugged this in and all my devices were good to go. Friends who were depending on the hotel wi-fi had varying degrees of success, so even if there is wi-fi available I would use this. I plan on taking this on all my trips from now on. One thing to note - it comes with a very short ethernet cable.
Summary: Already owned one exactly like this which I got in Shanghai, and this is just as amazing. I use the first one for frequent business travels as there are a lot of places with only LAN internet and I love the mobility of wi-fi, and also using all my other gadgets. As for this one, we've been using it as a wireless modem for a month now and it's working perfectly. It has five devices connected at the same time and all work seamlessly.
