Summary: D-Link DWL-G730AP Wireless Pocket Router/AP w/ Client Mode, 802.11g, 54Mbps Fantastic product! A real winner. Just received and have already set it up and successfully tested as Access Point (using this mode right now) and Client. Amazing that so much capability is packed into such a small package.
Summary: I was skeptical at first to purchase this item. I read many reviews here on Amazon.com before I decided to give it a try. It had more good reviews than bad so I ordered it hoping that the reviews that spoke of how easy it was to set up as an Access Port were reliable.

Summary: I played around with this device for 4 hours, called tech support - waited 30 minutes, was then put on hold for another 10 minutes before I gave up. I've finally figured out how to get it to work in AP mode - Win XP.
Excellent product that could use better instructions

Summary: Most importantly, this product does what it says it does and it works perfectly once it's setup. I've used it while traveling across Asia Pacific and it did just what I wanted: It gave me an quick and easy to establish portable wireless presence with all of the convenience and freedom that comes...
For those with an XBOX 360, looking for Microsoft alternative

Summary: Why we bought it... I specifically bought this item to be used with an XBOX 360 from my son that we wanted to move out of the family room. His bedroom did not have a wired connection like the family area so we opted for, rather than pulling more cables through the wall, for a wireless connection.
Summary: This router has multiple useful modes, but repeater is not one of them. While traveling, I needed the ability to set the router up where it could hear the hostel wireless and repeat it so we could use our laptops in our room instead of standing at the end of the hall. No dice.
Summary: Turn any hotel room into your private wi-fi spot!!! Some hotels only give you LAN access, and CHARGE EXTRA for wi-fi usage!! SAY HELLO TO MY LITTLE FRIEND! Buy this product if you are sick of being tied down to your desk at a hotel room, and love to enjoy wi-fi from your balcony of your room!!
Summary: The setup for this unit is rather difficult and I am not a novice techy. However, once setup this unit works great! The features are equal to or greater than a standard router. I use this for frequent business travel where I can share a single Internet access with colleagues.
