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: If you want to use this as a 3G router you need to ensure you've got one of the few specific 3G USB's that this device supports. Asus support as useful as a chocolate teapot, forwarding me their supportability list for a completely different and not even portable router.
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 must have for travellers. We stayed in a Hotel in KL with only wired internet in the rooms, as I had previously set it up at home to connect via my cable and created a wifi access point, we were able to share the connection for a week in the hotel without any interruption at all with good speed. The one star review about information is pointless and should be removed as the reviewer never actually had the product. I would definitely but again.
Summary: This is a great little piece of hardware. It makes it very easy for me to connect all of my devices to the hotel wifi. Seems this will also enable the use of a ChromeCast in the hotel which isn't otherwise possible in hotel networks when having to log in via a browser. Note: A firmware update to latest official version was necessary to be able to login to hotel wifi via browser.
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.
