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.
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: 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.
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. Although I mentioned the switch is difficult, it doesn't change positions on it's own. The short Ethernet cable it comes with is handy, I just wish I was better at not breaking off the tabs on most of my cables!
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 USB power adapter, very versatile.
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 Xbox) make sure it can be addressed at: 192.168.0.30 otherwise you can't get to it.
Summary: Great simple little router I bought the product for work With a small adapter that I built myself I run it through the batteries so I Lady Vlade Mobile him my camera AP makes him my camera and immediately broadcast the images wirelessly to a computer position quick and beautiful I've also set up a network of friends in a network game we played with everything we built this router Just excellent
