Product Description

Size: with Router

The Satechi Smart Travel Router / Travel Adapter with USB Port adapts to fit into four of the most common plug configurations used around the world and features four different modes for your wireless networking needs. Two options provide charge your device: an AC power port and a USB port. This compact adapter is convenient for charging smartphones, laptops, music players, cameras, e-readers, handheld game consoles, tablets, and other devices all around the world.

The Smart Travel Router can only support passwords containing letters and numbers. Special characters cannot be used.

Four Networking Modes
Router: Functions as a typical router, connecting to the internet provided by your ISP and broadcasting a wireless signal, enabling you to create your own network.
Repeater: Connect to your existing network and amplify it. This enables you to extend the range of your wireless network - invaluable if you have a weak connection in a room far away from your router.
Access Point: Create a wireless connection from a wired source. If only an Ethernet port or Ethernet cable is available, the router can connect to the wired connection and broadcast a wireless network that all your devices can connect to.
Client: Connect to a device such as a Smart TV or video game console via an Ethernet cable. The Smart Travel Router can then be used as a wireless adapter, enabling the connected device to connect to the internet wirelessly.

Technical Specs:
WAN/LAN Port: 10/100Mbps
Aux Cable: IEEE 802.11n/g/b up to 150Mbps
AC power rating: 6A max. 100-240Vac (110Vac max. 660Watt, 230Vac max. 1380Watt)

I was actually pretty happy with this unit, until I got to a hotel where the SSID I needed to connect it to had a space character in it (e.g. "ACME HOTEL"). The Satechi unit has no way to connect to a network so named, and no workaround (i.e. by BSSID or MAC), and in fact it can't connect to a network if the password contains a space character either, though I suspect this is less common.

The only help their tech support could offer was "You may have to change the SSID." Yeah right. Picture me ringing down to the front desk asking if they would please change the SSID on all the hotel's routers/access points to accommodate my stupid little device.

So unless you can guarantee that you'll never ever need to use this in a place where the SSID or password doesn't have a space in it -- and let me reiterate that these are two things you almost never have any control over, because you're a guest user and not the hotel's IT Administrator -- you will always run the risk of getting somewhere and not being able to use this as a router, which makes it just a plug adapter with a USB port, and that's worth five bucks, not fifty.

If they come out with a firmware update that lets the "Smart Travel Router" connect to SSIDs containing spaces and other legal characters -- like every other net-capable device I own -- then perhaps this will be worth buying again. As I said, I was otherwise pretty happy with it and had shown and recommended it to a few people already. But in its current state it's too unreliable to be useful, so I'm returning it the moment I get home.

This device does so many things that it is just amazing. It is a travel router that can boost the local WIFI signal and make it stronger for you to use where you are at. It can convert the hotel's wired Ethernet cable to a WIFI signal so you can use WIFI to connect your smart devices or laptop and not be tied to a cable. It can convert the AC wall plug in the hotel room to any plug adapter you want for over 150 countries. And on top of all of that it has a USB 5 VDC output rated at 2.1 amps that can charge your smart phone or tablet or any USB rechargeable device. This one tool can get rid of multiple devices that you pack into your suitcase for that long trip, especially overseas.

The unit features pop out wall plug prongs that will fit over 150 countries and they are easy to use and open up. My video shows this operation. The adapter can handle up to 6 Amps of power and work on 100 to 240 VAC and 50/60 Hz but remember it is an adapter only and it does not convert voltage or frequency. The device you plug in that uses AC power must be compatible with the power output from the wall plug. The USB 2.1 Amp output is DC voltage and it is ideal for charging your smart devices. It is nice that it is built into the router as in many countries the hotels do not have a lot of AC wall pug outlets. You can use the AC wall plug converter and the USB port simultaneously. The spot where you plug in your devices is designed to accept AC wall plugs in a universal design and accepts many types or plugs.

The router worked very well and it has the ability to be a WIFI access point or an Ethernet wire to WIFI converter. The SSID, MAC address, URL address and password are marked on the side of the router for your information.

I right away took the deep dive and started configuring using web UI pages and with some difficulties got it done fairly easily. Then I realized the quick setup page is specifically designed to meet the needs of travelers perfectly - which are either connecting the Satechi to hotel RJ45 cable or to the WiFi. Both options are readily available and with nothing more than the password you get this going in no time at all. Quick setup is what I will do from now on, especially in a hotel room or at a customer site to connect to the guest Wi-Fi just once. With Satechi's SSID and password already configured in all my devices, that cuts the setup times and start my meetings or demos using multiple connected devices (all on the same Satechi WiFi) instantly.

The firmware upgrade made it better, a definite A+ for software and configuration capabilities. On the hardware side there is room for improvement in the next version. OK for now, but not great. The hardware look or feel is pretty decent, but neither slick nor impressive. I appreciate the fact that they tried to squeeze in a lot of pins, covering all countries. However, the design for releasing the European 2-Pin connector is disappointing. You to push the button on the slide bar, which is not intuitive, and the "PUSH" lettering is white, on white button, and unless you are expecting to find it, or habitually sharp-eyed, you can miss it easily. I struggled to release it, and put some gentle pressure to ""pull" it out, thinking it was perhaps jammed. I seem to have damaged the mechanism a little in the process. Now I have to put a finger on this European connector, and press it hard against its floor and hold-it there, to be able to slide the bar, and make other connectors pop. Despite this let down, I still think this is a good product and is definitely worth the money, if you travel a lot, and with a lot of devices.
