Only $2 cheaper, Little travel router for your vpn pretty much, could technically be a repeater or your home router but it seems limited.

These really are great. I've used several times while traveling and can get around per device rules in hotels and such. And also, you can run Open VPN software to your VPN provider so you don't have to trust hotel wifi. Finally, you don't have to log in all your devices to yet another Hotspot.

Not everyone has great service everywhere, or has unlimited data. I also don't like my laptop to be my router because then it always has to be on and connected via Ethernet in order for all my other devices to work.

You connect the network cable in your hotel room that is commonly supplied near the desk/work table. You can then connect your laptop directly to this device or configure it to create it's own access point for your use. I've tried to use it with some success while traveling overseas, but it's never worked as well as I hoped. Typically due to the hotels poor internet speeds or simply not having a network cable (wifi only). Connecting these devices via WiFi is spotty because of 24 login rules commonly in place.

Can this device by pass hotel wifi login page, for using amazon fire stick or other plug and play device?

Not exactly. Depending on how the hotel has their network configured, you'll have to login as usual through the device to give the device access. If the wired connection doesn't require login, then you're good to go right away.

You connect to your device and create its own wifi access point that you could connect your fire stick or other wifi devices to. As soon as the device has internet access it shares it. So if you were testing your setup at home, your wifi devices would always automatically try to connect to the device's wifi when you power it on. If the hotel's policy revokes access every 24 hours, you'll get the login page as you normally would.

I use one of these as a wireless bridge for a printer that doesn't have wifi. Works perfectly.

I have the pricier version that does 5ghz with external antennas and it's my new travel router AP. My model has an advanced mode to setup OpenVPN client and toggles for allowing non-routable DNS (for some hotel captive portals) and cloning your PC MAC address after you login to the hotel AP.

A bit slow to get going but solid.
