  • 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

Does what it offers.

  • Excerpt: I bought this for when I am at a hotel that doesn't have wireless internet. Needed something for my phone and laptop to. I programmed it to be secure, and it worked great. The range isn't too great, but I am only using it in a small hotel room!
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Price, Secure Connection
  • Cons: Range

  • Summary: Bought this to create  a wifi hotspot in my office so my Galaxy Note 2 wouldn't eat through so much of my monthly data. Got it set up properly after a few hiccups. To anyone needing it for a similar application I would very much reccomend this - but you do need a laptop or netbook to set it up, no matter how new and fancy your phone or tablet is!
  • Pros: Very small and very portable.
  • Cons: First connections can hang for several minutes, leading you to think something is wrong, but it's not.

It's working for Ipad and Iphone

  • Pros: It's very compact and fast. The range is short which is what you want when you are traveling. Some people complain of not working for Ipad and Iphone. I've tried both. It's working fine. Actually, it's great for Ipone/Ipad since you can use you Apple power plug to power it.
  • Cons: Like other people has pointed out, a 110/240 volt power plug would be nice, since it is called travel router. The included USB cable is kind of short.

TrendNet mini-router

  • Excerpt: Works good for the design intended. Small enough for anyone's shirt pocket. Speed seems good. Better than using a Hotel Wireless that you are sharing with everyone. This assumes the Hotel also has a regular Ethernet Wire that you can connect the small router. Using this way allows you to use your Tablet or Laptop at much higher speed that you will normally get using a Hotel Wireless Connection.

Simpler than it looks!

  • Excerpt: I bought this device so that my wife and I could both log on in travel situations where there was only one wired network port. After some initial fumbling I found that it was everything the manufacturer [...] said it would. I just plugged it in and rolled!Initially, the manual seemed to describe a quiet complicated process, which indeed could result if one needed several layers of protocol and security.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast Connection Speed, Reliable connection

Great, but two things

  • Summary: Power plug fit is bad - need to insert it a bit less than fully in or it won't work
  • Pros: Compact and just works.
  • Cons: 100Mb ethernet instead of 1000Mbps for 300Mb wireless?

Just a D-Link stuff

  • Pros: Good item to have as stated for traveling. You may also use as a wifi connection to your media player that does not have built in wifi, but does have an ethernet plug.
  • Cons: Had to put something in here just so that I am able to click on the submit button.
