Convert your wifi hot spot into a wired connection
10 December 2012
Summary: This product is a goldmine productivity tool for me. I didn't know such a device even existed till I searched for it's capabilities; namely to make it appear that I am on a wired connection, when I am actually going wifi! I work a cust svc gig from home. The sw we use requires a hard wire rj45 internet connect. That would tie me to a couple of spots in my house. This device has a client mode that takes my home wifi and puts it out on an rj45 connection.
Add wireless capability to non-computer wired network devices.

Summary: This is the second of these that I have bought. The big advantage of these little devices, is that they add wireless internet capability to non-computer items like satellite receivers, DVD or Blu-ray players, etc.--anything that has a wired network port. Just put it in AP client mode, set it up using the wizard with a laptop or other PC, and then disconnect it from that and connect it up to your device. Fairly easy to do and very reliable connections.
A very useful and lightweight product to give you ultimate wireless power.

Summary: This product from D-Link is a very useful product. It's lightweight and small to travel with and works well if you are not in reach of a normal wireless router which enables you to be on the move and with wireless.
Summary: I definitely got good value out of this thing, but I managed to find it in a clearance bin for $15; at that price, it made paying $100 for an xbox 360 wifi adapter downright laughable. I've used it without fail to connect my original xbox, now, to my network to stream media to xbmc. Even at $45, this thing's amazing, though.
Pros: Compact, multiple power sources, carrying case, versatility, and value
Cons: Kinda weak on wifi reception, but for something that small and versatile it's more than worth the trade-off.
Summary: I needed to bridge my wireless network to connect some devices that I can't get a wire to easily. I bought 2 and I couldn't get either one of them to connect to my wireless router. I tried hooking both up to 2 different routers and nothing worked. I called tech support (what a joke). He took me through the steps in the manual and when it didn't work he said that is all the troubleshooting they can do. He said I must have gotten a defective unit. Both of them???
Pros: cheap, small
Cons: doesn't work, tech support is horrible, don't waste your time if you need a wireless bridge
Summary: It's funny to read other posts where people are complaining that this device isn't well suited for use as their main router in their home. That's NOT what it was designed for! Sheesh! Get a router with antennas, more power, and the features needed for a home router. This is designed for use inside a hotel room or studio apartment. How much of a signal do you really need?
Pros: This is an incredibly useful and handy device to have if you travel or need to deal with tech issues at speaking engagements, conferences, etc. It comes with it's own little travel bag and all the accessories you'd need. I only wish the instruction manual was designed to fit into the travel bag as well, because you really need to keep it with the kit. This device does three things: 1) lets you access any WiFi network from a computer that doesn't have a built-in WiFi a...
Cons: The labels on the mode switch on the bottom are almost impossible to read without a magnifying glass and with light shining at just the right angle.
Summary: I recently traveled to Spain for the first time with my Ipad,and when I got there, I was not able to use it because my room only had a wired Ethernet connection. It dawned on me that most hotels that I travel to only have wired ethernet in the rooms, so I needed an easy way to get wireless. A techie friend of mine recommended this device and with a little research, I bought it. The unit is small and comes with a nice case to carry everything that you need.
