5 out of 5 eggsGreat little Piratebox

Pros: -Small (duh)
-Low power requirements
-Powerful (As in bandwidth(for it's size))
-Great for use as a Librarybox or Piratebox
-Comes in a neat little box (I'm easily entertained :p )
-Compatible with 3G/4G USB devices

Cons: -Low distance (to be expected)

Other Thoughts: I use this as a Piratebox, and it works great! Up to 2MB/s for wireless connections. I wish it had a longer wireless reach, though. Other than that, I can't find anything else wrong with it! It's a great, reliable little device.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great with Verizon USB760 [Novatel 3G EVDO] and UML295 [Pantech 4G LTE]

Pros: Worked reliably with my old Verizon USB760 and, now that I have upgraded, it seems to work reliably with my new UML295 for 4G, too.

Runs from 5V power applied to its mini-USB (not micro-USB) port, so I have been able to run it in my vehicle from a spare Tom-Tom automotive power adapter since they also use mini-USB.

Has more configurability than typical SOHO router, even ones costing a couple hundred dollars (though less, obviously, than OpenWRT/DD-WRT/Tomato or a Cisco-Catalyst-type router).

Cons: No obvious cons relative to specifications and its intended applications. Would love to see shell access to the underlying OS and built-in OpenVPN TUN client, but those are rare features for any router in this class, even ones costing a few hundred dollars.

Other Thoughts: I originally bought this to flash with OpenVPN, but never got beyond the OEM firmware tests with my mobile broadband USB modems: It worked so well, I now keep it -- with the original firmware -- in the work van 24/7 on an ordinary cigarette lighter to mini-USB power adapter.

I now have instant internet access while in customer's homes and businesses without asking for guest access to their wifi or hanging a fragile modem dongle off the side of my laptop and waiting for a connection. It's been great.

We may start buying more of these to flash with OpenWRT to install alongside our equipment in customer's homes. With appropriate filtering and a high-bandwidth middle-man server, we can use either stunnel or OpenVPN to circumvent the NAT employed by Verizon's eHRPD, allowing customers to remotely access their CCTV recorder and door-access panel when mobile broadband serves as their home internet connection. (A better option is Verizon's offer for static IPv4 addresses for a $500 one-time setup cost, but I have not been able to convince any of our customers to enroll.)

4 out of 5 eggsgood router but no dice w/ U600

Pros: The factory firmware is good. Works fine with DD-Wrt. It would work fine as a wireless access point, repeater, or "WISP" router. The Hotspot System feature in DD-Wrt works with this router. Can be powered from a USB port. Patch cable included.

Cons: The hardware compatibility list says that this router is compatible with the Sprint / Franklin U600. I have a U600 from Virgin (which uses Sprint's network). I was unable to get the router to work with this modem, either under the factory firmware or DD-Wrt. I searched the net extensively, posted to the manufacturer's support forum, and emailed tech support. No joy. But I'm not upset; it turns out I didn't really need this router because the place I was visiting had a good wifi signal. I'll keep the router for testing, and in case support for the U600 is added in the future.

Other Thoughts: Range is less than spectacular, but what can one expect without an external antenna?

Buy your hardware well in advance of your trip so you have time to test it an ascertain whether it meets your needs.

5 out of 5 eggsDoes the job

Pros: Recently used this tiny router in Europe for two weeks. Excellent size for travel warriors. TP-Link provides excellent support for 3G/4G modems. Just look-up the country you are visiting and their website shows you the service provider and USB modem model supported. Bought a 3G USB modem in Moscow for 35 dollars plus a month of Internet access. The device works as advertised. The web interface is easy to use. Works with 110 and 220 power. Just make sure you get the right adapter for your destination.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent & Tiny

Pros: Runs OpenWrt Attitude Adjustment TRUNK, see openwrt.org for details.

Atheros radio well supported, using ath9k driver.

Large amount of RAM.

Low power requirements.

Reasonably priced.

Cons: Probably has fairly low range due to internal antenna.

4M flash is just sufficient.

Other Thoughts: I did not buy this for its intended use as a 3G hotspot generator. Instead, I got this as a base to run OpenWrt and Squeezeslave as a tiny battery powered music streamer. I'm happy to say that it works great, and was my easiest OpenWrt project out of 4 routers now.

Since it is so tiny, I plan to stuff it in an old boombox shell powered by a 12VDC lighter cord.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing for PirateBox!

Pros: This thing has amazing capability with OpenWRT. I installed the PirateBox server for file sharing capabilities. The range is actually pretty far

Cons: None its perfect

Other Thoughts: I will probably buy a few more for some other projects.

4 out of 5 eggsLove this Tp link.

Pros: I bought this little thing because of the PB article on it, but then when I got it my wireless adapter kicked so I just plugged this one in and put it on client and it works like a charm. It's pretty amazing how versatile this little thing is, it has so many uses and the interface is really simple. Plus, I think it looks kinda cool and it's really cheap.

Cons: the usb cable could be a little bit longer.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Inexpensive, tiny, and supports OpenWRT. Has a USB slot so can support flash drive, 3G, etc. USB powered is an excellent idea; all peripherals should standardize on USB power. This even allows it to be battery powered

Cons: Only 1 button, processor is not very powerful (but it's a router, not a PC!), and no external antenna.

Other Thoughts: Excellent value for the money. It is among the smallest, least expensive, OpenWRT routers available. Does not disappoint.

5 out of 5 eggsNice little device

Pros: Got this to load Piratebox firmware on for use in Afghanistan, turns out it's a surprisingly neat little router/AP as it is. Decent range in a heavily flooded WiFi area, using it as an AP to do voip calls on my cell phone 50-75 feet away. Plenty of features in the admin interface. It's small and easy to hide away or put in your pocket, and it's powered by a common mini-USB plug. So happy I'm keeping this as an AP and ordering another one for my original intent.

Cons: none
