Summary: I got this unit for use on a small robot that I'm building. The router is easy to configure and can be powered from 5V. My only complaint is that its range is fairly limited. It's OK for what it's built for and the connection is solid. It is also quite serviceable as a robot front end.
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.
Pros: - Worked right out of the box, - Powerful signal, - Carrying case included
Cons: - Initial login to config screen needs FireFox, - Heats up quickly
Nice Compact Travel Router, But Didn't Do What I Wanted
12 July 2013
Summary: Many people have purchased this router to plug into a wired connection at a hotel and then connect all of their devices wirelessly. On the other hand, I mistakenly purchased this unit not only for that, but to broadcast a wifi signal from my laptop.
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.
Summary: I've used this router all over the world. It's fantastic. Its only flaw is the power source, and it's not so bad: a wall wart or a double headed USB. ASUS released one that I just ordered that is similar in size and requires only a single USB input. It's also twice the price.
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...
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.
Simple setup with Apple products, MS Surface was a bit tricky

Summary: Once setup this is an excellent travel router. I've used it hotels where they only have a wired connection (typical of hotels in Asia). I had to change the security settings to WEP to get my Surface to work with it...I've had these sort of problems historically with different router/device combos.
Summary: Very small, nice packaging. You can use the device as is, right out of the box with no security. Works with Mac OSX, iPad and iPhone. However, if you want to configure the ssid and add security (wpa2) you MUST have a windows PC with wifi and IE. no other browsers supported for the admin setup.
