Pros: Purchased two of these and both are working great! This is one of a very few inexpensive routers that has a USB 2.0, WIFI, LAN (RJ45 10/100) and WAN (RJ45 10/100) port that is configurable and usable with the Openwrt firmware (version 18.x). May use either USB 2.0, WAN or WIFI port as wan interface with Openwrt. Includes header for USB (3.3VDC) serial line interface. This unit also works great using only USB power (500 milliamp). The serial cable makes this router almost brickproof. All in all, this unit features functionality that comes with routers that cost 3 or 4 times as much.

Cons: Two very minor issues. The selection for using the stock GL.iNET or Openwrt firmware is clumsy. Whenever the firmware reset button is activated the router boots to the stock GL.iNET installed firmware and not the Openwrt firmware, if that was being used. It would be really nice if the manufacturer would install a serial header externally on the case. I installed a serial USB cable by drilling a hole through the case and then attaching a USB 3.3VDC serial interface cable.

Overall Review: I would definitely recommend this product as a personal wifi or lan travel router.
