Does the job

  • Summary: Works well, a bit confusing to setup but after about 15 to 20 minutes of tinkering all is working well. I needed it to make a hardwire connection wireless for an ultrasound machine.

Great little wireless router.

  • Summary: Does exactly what you need. Easily extends a wireless network where there wasn't one before. Bought three and had them all up and running in 1/2 hour total. Range is good as long as you don't bury it under a bookshelf or something (it is so small you might be tempted to). Have used one for work for over a year (MacBook Pro on 25 Mbps outside internet connection) with no speed issues - same performance as being hard-wired.

Awesome for the size and price

  • Summary: We took this on a trip to Ethiopia where the hotel we were in had wired but not wireless in every room. It allowed me to just use smartphones and tablets instead of lugging the laptop along. It's super small and can be powered from TWO USB connections... or power adapter (which needed to have converter in Africa).... would be nice if it could handle US/INTL like a laptop adapter.

fantastic

  • Summary: This is one useful tool for a traveler's tool kit. Great if you have multiple devices, e.g., phone (or 2), tablet, etc., that need to share the same hotel internet access. Setup as an extension of your home network to provide remote, plug-in access to your DVD player, television, etc., is a piece of cake. (if you read the instructions). Greatly satisfied in the functional utility of this product.

User Review

  • Summary: Very easy initial setup - plug into network port, switch to AP mode (ignored the instructions), press set up button, and it's ready to use. The login to the config website was baffling - no login button displayed. A quick google and discovered that I needed to use FireFox instead of IE or Chrome. Upgraded the firmware and the problem went away. Nice strong signal, almost as good as my linksys. Config screen is easy to use and has all of the features I need.
  • Pros: - Worked right out of the box, - Powerful signal, - Carrying case included
  • Cons: - Initial login to config screen needs FireFox, - Heats up quickly

good and reliable

  • Summary: I got this for my wife's place of work. They don't have wi-fi and their IT dept would probably frown upon people bringing in their own routers. The setup was a bit confusing, but once done, the settings stay put even after being unplugged for months. The device is small enough that I could hide it on top of a cabinet and I turned the SSID broadcast off so no one was the wiser.

Perfect for traveling!

  • Summary: What drew me to this device was it's small size and the case that comes with it. I love that I can either plug it in to a wall socket, or power it via USB on my computer. One port works for me, but in case that doesn't work for you, plug in the second and it should power up. It is very important to make sure after you get this that you DO power it via USB to set it up and make sure it has the most up to date firmware (there was updates for mine).

Perfect portable wireless router

  • Summary: I travel throughout the world and this is a wonderful portable device. I was recently in Frankfurt with many meetings in my hotel room. I set this up, plugged the power into my USB on my computer to power it and all easily had access.

I wish more hotel rooms had hard-wired internet!

Amazon Customer, Amazon
29 March 2013
  • Summary: This thing is awesome. It's compact, easy to throw in my bag when I travel. Although pretty much every hotel offers free wifi, I use this device whenever possible. It almost always gives me a faster connection than the hotel wifi. The only downside is that hotels don't always have a port for it in the rooms. I travel about 1/3rd of the year, so I definitely get my use out of this and have had no problems!
