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.
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.
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.
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).
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.
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!
Summary: Bought this as I have been frustrated with hotel wireless signal strength. With very simple setup, this travel router worked like a champ in two different hotels during a recent vacation trip. Without it my tablet, wireless only, would not have been useful. I was able to slim down my luggage by leaving my laptop home, yet still being able to connect no matter the available network resources.
Summary: So while I have only used this on my last couple of business trips it has been flawless and perfect for what I wanted. First and foremost, it is a true travel router. What I mean is that the last one I had would not work on 220. With this unit it can use the 110 power, or just go to the USB. I am finding the USB to be better than dual voltage.
Excellent product with one small problem - a bit difficult to set up without some help
3 February 2013
Summary: I have it set up in a corner of the living room in my three-bedroom apartment for over a month now and it is working fine for our iPhones and notebooks. Had some problem getting it set up as Trendnet tech support was difficult to get on the phone. I gave up and called Time Warner tech support, and their guru walked me through the setup in a few minutes. Been rock solid since. My advice, skip the setup hassle and call your Internet Service Provider for help.
