Works but different version – TP-LINK TL-WR702N Mini Portable 150M 802.11n Wi-Fi Wireless Router - Green Reviews

Pros:
Bought this and spent some time figuring out the configuration, and I was able to reset it and go through the whole set-up with just my iPhone. Now I don't have to bring my netbook around when I travel overseas to shady hotels with just a LAN port, or those which charge crazy rates for Wi-Fi or multiple Internet devices. It's also crazy small and you can probably fit 2 in your hand. Good as a repeater at home and as AP when traveling.
Cons:
Got this with the Chinese firmware and couldn't re-flash it with the English one. It's also not compatible with DD-WRT and the instructions are different from the ones on their official website. Range is also not as good but shouldn't be a problem in hotels or 1-room Japanese apartments.
Other:
The English instructions say to connect it via LAN with different IPv4 settings, which didn't work for me. I understood some Chinese so I managed to get through it in the end.
Bottomline:
Great tiny product that does an excellent job.
