1. The D-Link is compatible will every modem we've hooked it to... from dial-up (scary) to DSL and Cable. From the big name modems in the US to the strange things you find in people's homes in Asia... it synced with each one and worked great... just plug it in and you're wireless!
I would also suggest picking up a cheap usb wifi adaptor. If someone doesn't have a wireless router already, they will likely only have a desktop and since you will be connecting their modem to your router, you will need to make the desktop 'wireless'.
2. The D-Link really shines in hotels. There have been no problems hooking it to the Ethernet connections in the myriad of hotel rooms we stayed in: from Alabama to Bangkok (even Abu Dhabi). The plug is not only 110-240 but is not grounded so can be fitted to any overseas power adaptors. The reach overseas does vary wildly and where it's mostly concrete construction (Asia, Middle East, etc...) you are better 'sharing' the connection through windows and floors/ceilings, than walls. Good to keep in mind when you are watching the children at the pool or sharing an expensive connection with co-workers.

I specifically bought this item to be used with an XBOX 360 from my son that we wanted to move out of the family room. His bedroom did not have a wired connection like the family area so we opted for, rather than pulling more cables through the wall, for a wireless connection. Since my son(s) are extremely active on XBOX Live we needed the connection.
Since the XBOX will not be used by him to stream large HD video over the home network we did not need anything wired and the DSL connection at 1.5MBPS is BY FAR less that the available bandwidth of this router. Conclusion: a basic 11 mbps OR BETTER ethernet bridge / client would be more than sufficient for Live play.
We also frequently travel, either with the family and for business, and want to share 1 wired internet connection in most hotel rooms with everyone that has their laptop with them (my kids drag their Compaq bricks around everywhere to play Runescape).
After looking at the MS wireless adapter that is 'made' for the XBOX 360 we decided that that was a rubbish solution at 90$. We looked for alternatives by simply specifying:
- wireless gaming adapter
- wireless ethernet bridge
- game adapter
Using those searches you will find a range of products that satisfy the requirements of the XBOX and provide superbly stable connections to XBOX Live.
I ended ordering several of the options (reviewed elsewhere) over a series of months but ended up giving them away to needy fellow XBOX friends of my son who did not have the $ to buy their own.

Another plus, is around my office when I get visitors who need to check their Emails. Again the AirPlus works great and I manage to share my connection.
SET UP note: I use the AirPlus as an access point. The initial setting is tricky especially if the default on your PC is to aquire an IP address automatically (Dynamic IP). You need to set a fixed IP for your PC in the range 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.0.254 EXCEPT 192.168.0.30 which is that of the AirPlus. Once you finish the configuration with a fixed IP and with a wired connection to the AirPlus, you can switch back to dynamic IP and wireless.
I struggled with Netgear's version of a travel router for several months before this and it was one painful experience after another. I swear, that Netgear travel router took years off my life. But then... D-Link saves the day!
What a difference!! This is a dream to use compared to the Netgear (which by the way is almost excactly the same as the 3Com - they both stink). This router is configurable with the kind of more advanced settings that you find on regular home routers. It's very stable, supports WPA very well, and doesn't flinch with multiple devices/users connected at once so, I love it.
One thing I noticed is that turning off UPnP really helped. Just go into the config and you'll find the setting to turn it off. I think UPnP doesn't always play well with Windows (ironic, huh?) so I always opt to turn it off. Again, the other routers in this class don't even allow you to configure things like UPnP. Can you tell I'm bitter about the Netgear? Just a little.
So, bottom line, this router works like a router should and the fact that it's smaller and much cooler looking than the others is just icing on the cake.
Great buy - highly recommended.

Great product. It does what it is supposed to do. It captures the signal and puts in into your laptop or router so you can then transmit it into your office. Highly recommend.Published on February 22, 2013 by Leave Me Alone
