Buy it on Amazon – http://lon.tv/qzula (affiliate link) – This is a handy portable router that’s made for traveling – especially given it has all of the international power adapters needed built in.
The device includes an ethernet port, USB charging port, and has an 802.11n wireless access point / client running on the 2.4ghz spectrum.
It works well and as expected. It’s no powerhouse so I wouldn’t expect to run more than a few clients off of it, but it’s enough to set up an ad hoc network in a pinch. It can also act as a little firewall if hotel internet is your only connectivity option. One of its settings allows the wireless interface to act as the WAN connection with the ethernet portion acting as the LAN.
My only issue with it is the confusing nature of its configuration. For example “bridge” mode on the device by default is really just an access point mode. A second option has to be clicked for it to work truly as a bridge. Additionally the wireless WAN mode I described above is called ‘ethernet adapter’ when that would be a term I would normally associate with a wireless client mode.
That gripe aside this can be a handy tool to have when traveling – especially for adding at least a little bit of protection when connecting to a hotel network.
