The ZyXEL MWR102 is the perfect travel companion for anyone who needs fast, easy wireless internet access on the go. Many ultra-portable devices like PDAs, tablets, handheld game consoles, and even some laptops no longer accept a wired connection, limiting their functionality in locations without wireless access. The MWR102 combines a miniature router and wireless access point to create the perfect way to share high-speed wireless internet access in hotel rooms, conference rooms, or anywhere a wired broadband connection is available. Enjoy superior wireless performance anywhere with the MWR102.

  • newegg On-the-Go Wireless Access Designed with a portable form factor that easily fits into a pocket, a laptop case, or the palm of your hand, it’s the perfect way to bring a wireless connection with you whether in the office or on the road.
  • newegg Big things from a small package The MWR102 doesn’t sacrifice performance in favor of its portability. 2.4GHz wireless technology allows 11n data transfer rates of up to 150Mbps while still remaining compatible with older 11b/g devices.
  • newegg Powered by USB for extreme portability Because power outlets are often in short supply while travelling, the MWR102 can be USB-powered to ensure convenient internet access anywhere.
  • newegg Easy Setup Setting up a secure wireless connection couldn’t be simpler. Each MWR102 ships with a different default SSID and encryption enabled by default. Just check the bottom of the MWR to find out the security key used by your router, or change it to one of your own choosing.
  • newegg Advanced Security Features To provide the highest data security possible, the MWR102 supports WEP, WPA, and WPA2 encryption. It also comes equipped with firewall features like NAT (Network Address Translation), VPN pass-through, and SPI (Stateful Packet Inspection) to prevent attacks from the internet.

5 out of 5 eggsworks great

Pros: tiny, powered by USB, easy setup, reliable

Cons: none that I could find

Other Thoughts: I have had one of these for maybe 1.5 to 2 years? Taken it all over the world, hooked it into a hundred different hotel wired outlets and its always just WORKED. Not even noticeable in my backpack. zero space required and weighs NOTHING.. :-)

lol.. Not sure what the other reviewer was complaining about by "hooked it to my PC".. HOW exactly would you do that? and if you did, did you use a crossover cable?

1 out of 5 eggsDid not last two months

Pros: Design. Size. Price

Cons: Not reliable.

Other Thoughts: Purchased in October. Died in November. I work as an IT consultant and have set up dozens of routers. This Zyxel stopped working after only 6 weeks. I believe the problem is with the WAN ethernet port. NOT RECOMMENDED!

1 out of 5 eggsLooks good BUT - Does Not Work!!

Pros: Portable and looks good functionality wise. Portable in size and great if works as designed

Cons: Similar experience as previous reviewer. This one was very difficult to set up. With No documentation. The web site was no help.

Called ZyXel's Support, someone answered w/in 10-15 min. Person was friendly but did not solve the problem. Spend ~5-6 hours making various configuration changes but this device did not work at all in Client mode, and then would not even work in AP or router mode. Even downloaded the latest Firmware version to router.

This was on my vacation day so I thought I could get the MWR102 Router get to configure before taking with me for travel and use as intended.

Eventually tech support advised me to get my money back!

Very disappointing. Waste of my PTO day working on a dead beat product ;-)

Save your money and spend some where else.

Other Thoughts: Newegg's response was awesome. I requested for a refund and they quickly processed for RMA and refund.

I have been very happy with & loyal to Newegg.

1 out of 5 eggsDid Not Work

Pros: Small, Everything you would want in a travel companion. This was a smoking deal that will cost $8-9 shipping back to Newegg. Snake Eyes at the Craps Table LOL

Cons: Did not work out of the box. Would not work correctly connected to my ethernet port of the laptop.

1 out of 5 eggsWished it worked

Pros: Eggcellent Price. Small. Size of a match box. Will fit in any shirt pocket.
Perfect for travel, if you can get into the set up mode.

Read Cons.

Cons: I have set up quite a few wireless routers before w/out any problems, but this one was very difficult to set up. With No documentation. The web site was no help.

Call ZyXel's c/s, someone answered w/in 10-15 min.

The agent was friendly and eager to help but he did not resolve the problem. He stated that the Ethernet port was not working properly.

After I hang up the phone, I decided to play with the router and I was able to get it to work in AP mode. When I tried to set it up for Client mode, it stop functioning and I was not able to get back in to the set-up mode.

Very disappointing.

Other Thoughts: As usual, Newegg's response was awesome. I requested for a replacement and they took care of it immediately.

I went to a computer store a day later and p/u a Zonet travel router. The Zonet was so easy to set up and the documentation was straight forward and easy to understand.

I requested Newegg to issued me a refund on the ZyXel and they did so with no problem whatsoever.

I will always be loyal to Newegg.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for in car wifi hotspot

Pros: Took a beach vacation and for the 15 hour road trip thought it would be fun for the kids to stream movies from a media server on my laptop and/or play games that interact over a local wifi hotspot.

This little unit worked perfectly for that purpose. Plug and play, zero configuration. I did change the network name and wifi password from the factory settings, but that was just to make it easier for everyone to connect (easy to recognize hotspot name and password was simply 0123456789.

This unit is lightweight and has a high quality feel. Plugged directly into my Kensington car power adaptor (comes with built in USB ports), so to play games all the kids had to do was plug in the ZyXEL. The media server on the laptop only had to be on when they were watching movies.

Between my wife and 3 kids we had 4 different movies streaming at the same time to 3 iPhone devices and 1 iPad. Worked beautifully.

Cons: No cons.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't buy this!!!

Pros: None

Cons: often wifi disconnect. I noticed any wifi connection will reset occasionally.

Other Thoughts: It's cheap but consider any wifi device will continue reset every once awhile, Tunein, browser, will not work well with it.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat 3-in-1 router

Pros: Extremely small in size, but very capable 3-in-1 device (router, AP or client adapter). Supports 802.11n. Signal is as strong as typical regular size router.

Cons: User guide only provides instructions to set up as router and AP mode. ZyXEL email support never replied to submitted question on client adapter mode. However, when calling support, was able to get agent right away. Although agent was not knowledgeable with question on this device, he was able to search and find answer in about 10 min wait time. Instruction was emailed to me and was easy to follow. Suggested ZyXEL to post client mode instruction at their product web site. Agent also confirmed there's no firmware update since the original version that's shipped with product (quite dated).

Other Thoughts: Summary of client adapter mode setup:
1. Configure PC NIC with static IP address (e.g. 192.168.100.10 /24).
2. Flip switch on MWR102 to AP mode.
3. Connect MWR102 to NIC Ethernet port.
4. Open browser and type in 192.168.100.1 as address/URL.
5. Login in to MWR102 with "admin" and password (default is 1234).
6. Select: Wireless > Basic Settings.
7. Change Wireless Mode to "Client", click Apply.
8. Select: Wireless > Site Survey.
9. Click Site Survey button.
10. Select the wireless network SSID you want to connect to, enter security settings (including pre-shared key).
11. Click Connect. If successful, will get "Connect Successfully" message.
12. Close browser window. Change PC NIC back to using DHCP to get IP address assignment (i.e. undo step #1 above).
13. The MWR102 is ready for use on this or any device you like, as long as it's Ethernet connected to the MWR102.
