    Portable Router for private wifi etc


    Hi folks
    Increasingly Hotels etc are charging extra for their wifi if you have more than one connection in the room

    Well using a portable router creates your own private wifi network which you can share with other people / devices -- this one also has 5GHZ capability so max throughput from Hotel wifi is 433 Mib/s. Create private network from single source !!! - just pay once (or have the single FREE connection and create wifi network !!!).

    You can connect to the LAN as well and create wifi network -- a lot of laptops now don't have LAN ports any more.

    Great piece of kit -- I use also at public wifi outlets too as it's secure rather than rely on public wifi security (i.e none) and will hobble those "shifty characters" who try and use public wifi to steal passwords etc etc.

    Great also for supporting DLNA servers so you can show your own movies on Hotel TV etc. Has 3 usb slots so can share HDD's over the wifi network too.

    Brilliant piece of kit -- not too large ---Don't leave home without it.

    Cheers

    Jimbo there is always the Raspberry Pi 3 TOR that has been working great for those who travel.

    It is probably the best little gadget to come around.

    Alphanumeric and I are both playing around with that unit to see what it can do.
