Product Description

From the Manufacturer

On-the-Go Wireless Access

The ZyXEL MWR102 is the perfect travel companion for anyone who needs fast, easy wireless internet access on the go. 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 - in the office or on the road.

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.

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.

Icon

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.

Icon

Easy Wireless Setup with WPS

WPS makes it easy to establish a secure wireless connection. With the simple push of a button, networked devices can be quickly and easily paired – all without the hassle of remembering and entering complicated pass phrases.

Icon

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.

Ideal for international travel, the supplied wall charger accepts 110-240v input and it packs away nice and small. The small cloth bag which was included is really too small for the unit, charger and cables and only really useful for the unit itself and helps protect it. The box it came in is excellent for packing it all away for travel.

Setup:
Easy to set up, the unit is able to clone a MAC address (and save up to three MAC addresses) which is handy for connecting to certain modems, it is also able to save configurations (which should allow for easy reloading). Having an ethernet option as well as wireless allows a bit more flexibility, it took about 10 minutes to add the router between an existing computer and cable modem, change the defaults and configure the MWR102, clone the existing computer's MAC address (ISP limitation) and TCP/IP settings and have it working with no negative impact on the existing computer and enabling wireless for other computers to connect.

Performance:
Performance is surprisingly good for such a small unit, with a good connection possible at 10m through 2 walls. Best performance is found when raising the unit high and keeping it flat, as the unit is so small and light a little tape or blu-tack may be needed to prevent kinks in the cables from twisting the unit off the table! The supplied ethernet cable is very short (cat 5e) which may not be an issue if the ethernet connection is up high, I bring a longer cable to allow more flexibility in positioning of the unit, the power cord has plenty of length. I found that some devices (android phone) had a harder time staying connected than a laptop, a reboot of both devices seemed to sort this out so now I power cycle the unit every few days or so.

Uses:
WiFi Access point (adds a wireless connection to a network)
Wifi Router (works like an Access Point but also shares the connection with multiple devices)
Wireless Client Bridge (connects to an existing wifi network and bridges the connection to TWO Ethernet ports)

Thoughts:
In the short run, I bought this to add wi-fi to my Xbox 360 on the cheap, and I wanted something that could take the place of a wifi card in a new computer I'm halfway finished buying parts for. I had a little trouble setting up Client Bridge mode at first, but when I asked ZyXEL they responded helpfully through both email and an English speaking native on phone support. As an unexpected bonus, both the WAN and LAN ports function to bridge wifi to Ethernet in Client mode, so I'll be able to give both my Xbox And computer wifi at the same time. Right now, I just have the MWR102 hooked up to my Xbox via Ethernet and USB, and the short included cables keep everything tidy. If you would like to see the steps I used to set this up, visit Tom's Hardware (the website) and search for the product.
This will also be useful to add wi-fi during travel, the main advertised use of this product, though I don't travel as much as I used to.

As far as 150mbps wireless N bandwidth goes, that's several times faster bandwidth than any personal consumer connection to the Internet, and my connection signal is strong from the basement game room with no lag created from my end. I have not had any sudden dropped connections so far, I am confident that this is a quality product.

Update:
Router still working great as of April 6th. I have it set up in my very concrete-y basement (super challenging for wi-Fi), with both the Xbox and a desktop computer plugged in.

The ZyXEL Wireless Router worked great! My wife and I traveled to Guam and Hawaii and she brought along her ipad. Once I got the ZyXEL connected her was able to stay in contact with friends and family while relaxing in bed or on deck. Plus traveling with the router was extremely easy and simple. One of the best purchases I made in quite a while.

When I first tried it a wireless device would connect but would immediately disconnect. I called the tech support staff at Zyxel and they said it would not work if wireless was already present in my location. I took it to another location and the same thing happened . I changed the router password and then it started working at both locations that I tried it at regardless of wireless being present.

I bought this because I needed a 2.4GHz compatible wireless access point, and this does that and more. very well

on the side of this very small router is a switch for Router or Access point, which is handy for taking it on a trip.

in the box:
router
carrying bag
AC to USB mini-B adapter (5V .6a)
USB cable
cat 5e cable
documentation

setup is easy, all the info is written on the bottom of the router (default admin login, ip address, SSID and WPA password.)

the router, in access point mode indeed does let both the LAN and WAN ports work as LAN ports. the speed is excellent and the latency is as good or better than any other dedicated access point I have used to date. the range is good for the physical size, but I don't think this is a MIMO router (who cares, no big deal)

in router mode, it just plugs in, boots quickly and WORKS.

a relief that this unit does exactly what it claims to do and does it well, with little headache.

I absolutely recommend this, I'll probably buy another.
