5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome travel router, March 7, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: TRENDnet Wireless N 300 Mbps Travel Router Kit, TEW-654TR (Personal Computers)
I absolutely could not live without this travel router. I travel a lot for business and spend about 6 months a year in hotel rooms. Even when the hotel offers wifi access I prefer to use my TrendNet router because speed and signal strength is so much better. One thing that I found quite interesting is the three modes that the router can operate in. It can be used as a router, and access point (ethernet extention), or as a client. In client mode it works "backwards", giving wifi to a device that typically wouldn't have it. These are sometimes known as "Ethernet Bridges" and range in price from $75-$200. For $50, you get this functionality plus a travel router.

Compatibility was my big question - previous reviews said they had problems with iPads and phones. I can happily report that it works great with iPads, iPhones, and every other wifi enabled device I have thrown at it. The set up screens for the router don't work very well in Safari or Chrome (missing buttons) so try to configure it using IE.

Over all, I love it and would buy it again.

I had the same problem with missing buttons for the set up screens in safari and chrome, however with the latest firmware update it does display correctly now. The set up screens even show up properly on the iphone and ipad.
