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.
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).
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.
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 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 have the Version A of this product. Version B is out now. Mine is about 6 years old and I have used it everywhere I go. Remember that hotel wireless in unsecured. That means that it's no different than a coffee shop. I usually travel with 2 PC's, a work PC and a personal netbook.
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.
Summary: Most of the time, I plug it into my router or the router at work and use it as an access point for my Itouch. At work, I get 16Mbps download speed, so it's fast enough. I did use it with my Xbox30 but gamers know that direct connect is recommended.
Pros: Works well, have used it in all three modes. Range is good, I've connected using my Ipod touch while sitting in my car in the driveway when unit is on second floor. Interface is reasonable and user friendly. Documentation is easily downloaded. Very portable, and with the AC power adapter and the ...
Cons: Biggest problem: Switch to change modes is difficult to switch and markings VERY hard to read. (for my old eyes) Also: Gets a little warm though not hot. Wish USB power adapter was longer. If you plug it into your router to program it. (I had to when I wanted to use at as a Wifi receiver for my X...
Summary: I often encounter hotel rooms with cable internet connections only (no WiFi), which doesn't help me when I want to use my iPod Touch to check my email, surf the web, or maybe check the weather forecast. I bought this pocket router to solve the problem, and does so very nicely.
