5 out of 5 eggsAwesome little bugger

Pros: Compact, multiple power sources, carrying case, versatility, and value

Cons: Kinda weak on wifi reception, but for something that small and versatile it's more than worth the trade-off.

Other Thoughts: I definitely got good value out of this thing, but I managed to find it in a clearance bin for $15; at that price, it made paying $100 for an xbox 360 wifi adapter downright laughable. I've used it without fail to connect my original xbox, now, to my network to stream media to xbmc. Even at $45, this thing's amazing, though.

1 out of 5 eggsbridging doesn't work

Pros: cheap, small

Cons: doesn't work, tech support is horrible, don't waste your time if you need a wireless bridge

Other Thoughts: I needed to bridge my wireless network to connect some devices that I can't get a wire to easily. I bought 2 and I couldn't get either one of them to connect to my wireless router. I tried hooking both up to 2 different routers and nothing worked. I called tech support (what a joke). He took me through the steps in the manual and when it didn't work he said that is all the troubleshooting they can do. He said I must have gotten a defective unit. Both of them??? My only option was to return them and get another product they offer that works better. I don't think so.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Portable Device!

Pros: This is an incredibly useful and handy device to have if you travel or need to deal with tech issues at speaking engagements, conferences, etc. It comes with it's own little travel bag and all the accessories you'd need. I only wish the instruction manual was designed to fit into the travel bag as well, because you really need to keep it with the kit.

This device does three things:

1) lets you access any WiFi network from a computer that doesn't have a built-in WiFi adapter (or if it's broken). This is the "client" mode.

2) if a hotel charges for WiFi but they provide free internet access via cable, use this to create your own WiFi network in the room. It will work with a number of computers. This is the "Access Point" mode.

3) If you have a wireless phone device, like a Verizon EVDO interface, you can use this to create your own little WiFi hot-spot through your laptop and your EVDO adapter. This is in "Router" mode as a bridge device.

Cons: The labels on the mode switch on the bottom are almost impossible to read without a magnifying glass and with light shining at just the right angle.

Other Thoughts: It's funny to read other posts where people are complaining that this device isn't well suited for use as their main router in their home. That's NOT what it was designed for! Sheesh! Get a router with antennas, more power, and the features needed for a home router. This is designed for use inside a hotel room or studio apartment. How much of a signal do you really need?

This thing is meant to be packed in your suitcase or computer bag and carried around from place to place.

I can only imagine that these folks don't understand what this device is really for, so they complain it doesn't work for things it wasn't made to do.

There are very few products like this on the market.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Little Device

Pros: Works well, have used it in all three modes. Range is good, I've connected using my Ipod touch while sitting in my car in the driveway when unit is on second floor. Interface is reasonable and user friendly. Documentation is easily downloaded. Very portable, and with the AC power adapter and the USB power adapter, very versatile.

Cons: Biggest problem: Switch to change modes is difficult to switch and markings VERY hard to read. (for my old eyes)
Also: Gets a little warm though not hot. Wish USB power adapter was longer. If you plug it into your router to program it. (I had to when I wanted to use at as a Wifi receiver for my Xbox) make sure it can be addressed at: 192.168.0.30 otherwise you can't get to it.

Other Thoughts: Most of the time, I plug it into my router or the router at work and use it as an access point for my Itouch. At work, I get 16Mbps download speed, so it's fast enough. I did use it with my Xbox30 but gamers know that direct connect is recommended. Although I mentioned the switch is difficult, it doesn't change positions on it's own. The short Ethernet cable it comes with is handy, I just wish I was better at not breaking off the tabs on most of my cables!

4 out of 5 eggsnice portable router

Pros: small, light, highly configurable. I bought it to replace my Linksys travel router which burned out. After 2 years, this thing is still working fine.

Cons: weak, poor range. only works well in a single room.

3 out of 5 eggsVery cool, but radio seems weak

Pros: Very cool form factor and packaging. Definitely targetted for travelers.

Cons: The radio on this thing seems really weak, despite maxing it out in the settings tab. I couldn't keep a stable connection from one level up and two rooms over (in my house). My laptop - same protocol, speed, position - worked like a champ every time. So I'm fairly certain it's either broken or designed badly. Either way, I'm off to run a wire... yay.

5 out of 5 eggsSo good I have 3!

Pros: I bought one of these for the many field service calls I used to make outstate. From client sites where wireless wasn't available to just making the hotel more comfortable using my laptop without an Ethernet cable. This amazingly small device is as versatile as it is capable. It worked so well I bought two more. These two have been running in client mode on the backs of IP Cameras for a couple years each in my garage (in client mode). Throughout the subzero winter and high heat and humidity of summer, these work very well. The original still goes on trips with me and has helped me stay connected in trade shows, seminars, and vacations.

Cons: I do have to restart them about every month or two, but this could easily be from the Airport Express they connect to. I restart the three of them if anything goes wrong with any of them. Then they work well for weeks to months on end. They are running outside their rated specs for environment so I don't complain that a power cycle is sometimes needed. A small inconvenience compared to the hassle of wiring my garage for Ethernet!

Other Thoughts: There are two versions of firmware that I have. One supports WEP only and the newer does WPA but is a bit touchier. I hope DLink keeps making these and improves the firmware, but as they are, they are impressive. I wouldn't make this a fulltime router if you mind occasional restarts, but do highly recommend them for your computer bag. You'll find all sorts of uses for it and employ it often.

3 out of 5 eggsgreat when it works

Pros: worked well for the first month died after 45 days.

Cons: construction is cheap, on mine it was difficult to connect and disconnect from the port. Died after 45 days.

Other Thoughts: Like others have written, I believe this is most useful as a temp router. It is a pocket router not meant for long periods of use. RMA is only good for 30 days --doh
