Summary: I've spend hours and hours trying to get this PoS to work with a t-mobile sim, First in the dongle that came with the sim, i.e. locked to t-mobile and secondly with an unlocked dongle. Wasted my time and wasted my money.
Summary: What a wonderful little device this is. Took it to KL and as our Hotel only had wired internet I plugged it into the cable and was then able to use my own personal (secured) wifi hotspot. Works for up to 5 connections too. It also does wifi range boosting and has the 3G sim slot although I don't use this. Very happy with this little unit.
Summary: This little thing is perfect for travel and to give you Wifi where you have only cable access. Plug it in the wall and get your Wifi access working in minutes. You can power it up from your laptop via usb and the wall plug. It is very portable. I love the little thing and bring it with me evwrywhere.
Summary: I've tested the various functionality offered and while it appears to work, the main feature I need, I haven't had a chance to test it yet and will only find out the next time I go on holiday i.e. connecting to a hotspot and sharing the connection with all my devices/kid's devices, etc...
Summary: This is a rare review where I say the item is amazing for a few people (tell me the difference between L1 and L2) and I suspect a pain in the arse for others. OOB it takes power via microusb - directly from the usb-A->micro or USAB-A cable. There's a PSU included, but it's a European 2-prong to USB job. For me this is perfect as I used pretty much solely in European hotels, but worth considering if your requirements differ. So, once you've got it powered, what can it do?
Summary: I bought this to use on a campsite in France that has pay wifi internet. The asus can be easily set up to produce a subnetwork that you can link all your toys to -laptop, tablet, phones, kindle etc. Using the supplied network cable you log on to the the wifi hotspot, make your payment in a browser and then set up your sub net for your gadgets. You can then log on to the Asus wirelessly.
Summary: Trying to use it to connect an Ethernet only device to my wifi network. Interface is simple and nothing to set other than connecting to the wifi network. Tried it on two different wifi networks and still cannot get internet access for my device.
Summary: The item is tiny! after a straight forward set-up, I tested it in the Marriott, and it worked immediately. I logged straight into the hotel internet via the ASUS using my Touchpad/Slate. The only negative is that the power plug is a two pin config- although it arrived with a converter plug included (the bulkiest piece of the lot!!). I also misunderstood the 6 in 1, thinking I could pair my phone to it, but the '6' is for use with a dongle.
