For anyone on the fence about buying one for hotels: just do it already.

I paid 3x this in 2013 for a similar one, and it has become an invaluable part of my travel kit.

Chromecast? Works.
Hotel with a device per account limit? Not anymore.
Hotel that makes you sign in on every device? Only have to do it on one device now.
Hotel that makes you sign in every 24 hours? Only have to do it on one device now.
Hotel that has great wired connection but crap wifi? Now I've got great wifi.
Hotel that has great wifi at the door but crap anywhere else in the room? Put this by the door.

I've encountered all of these scenarios and others, and fixed them with a simple travel router. Anyone who travels with any regularity whatsoever should have one of these in their suitcase.
Perhaps the person did not have technical background and asked someone to explain in non-technological terms what the product actually does... Not everybody is a tech genius like you.
Travel router/repeater + USB drive sharing port + USB 2.1A charge port for $5 FS is a no-brainer.

Looking to connect it via a long ethernet cable to the LAN port of my main router to extend WiFi range (wireless access point) to a small area at minimal cost and power usage.

So-so reviews [amazon.com] for the 3 year old TRENDnet on Amazon where it is $8 shipped from a few vendors. Official product page [trendnet.com], support page [trendnet.com] with PDF user guide [trendnet.com].

ADD: Per SmallNetBuilder's N150 Wireless Travel Router Roundup [smallnetbuilder.com] review from 2014:

- no Access Point mode: transform your existing wired network to a wireless network
- no Client mode: acting as a "wireless adapter" to connect your wired devices (e.g. Xbox/PS3) to a wireless network

It does support:

- Repeater mode: extend your existing wireless coverage by relaying wireless signal
- Router mode, obviously, though I doubt anyone would want this as their main router
- WISP / Hotspot mode: enable multiple users to share internet connection from WISP (hotel, public Wi-Fi). YMMV as to how well it works

9 bucks for a basic powerline ethernet set up ain't bad. Thanks.

Great price on the 7020's

I have the 1200 single port and have been happy. I could add these but doing so lowers the entire connect powerline system to 1000 Max, the lowest speed.

never mind , mine is a different brand - Netis (has worse reviews, btw)

-------------------
Bought earlier version of their travel router earlier for twice the money. well worth $5.
bye-bye hotel wireless access fees. If you have an ethernet socket nearby - you have your private wireless network, right there.
no issues with it, either, at least for me.

Code doesn't work at checkout


Edit: I am able to find the reason. I am able to apply but it is failing at checkout process. Finally I figured out the problem , I didn't login to the account & hence it is failing at checkout Roll Eyes (Sarcastic)

Dumb question: Is a "repeater" the same thing as a "WiFi Extender?"

EDIT: Evidently they are the same. For $5 seems like a great deal. Bought the powerline adapter as well. Thanks OP!

What does the WISP function do? could someone please explain, from google it sounds like it takes another wifi and use its internet to setup a access point?

Can it use an existing wifi say from a hot spot and output the connection through the ethernet port?

Thanks! Grabbed the AV200 to try to use in my apartment building to wire up to the 3rd floor and use an old router as an AP. We'll see...

Were you able to apply the code for powerline AV1000? I am using paypal & visa checkout and in both options its failing to include the code.

It should. My console connects, to a different WISP device, through its ethernet port, to get on my wifi network. The N150 hardware looks good, I hope they did a good job on the software department also.

update:
Confirmed that the WISP mode allows device to connect to wifi through Ethernet port. The firmware is buggy, which allows you to change the wifi password only once and need to reset to default for changing the wifi access password. It doesn't have port forwarding nor VPN support, makes it a very basic router, which diminished the main purpose of getting a travel router. The charge port can charge ipad with 2amps while it is turned off, which makes it a good buy for that single feature (with international plugs).

This router works just as well and is more convenient because the power supply is integrated.
