Attention! – Portable Mini USB WIFI Wireless Broadband Router - Black + White Reviews

Pros:
It’s very compact and has a nice quality feel to it. Starts up in no time and switching between different modes are fast. I never switch though; I use it as an access point only. It’s very important that it’s used with a proper power supply. My HTC phone charger or Nexus pad charger doesn’t do the trick and it becomes very unstable. I haven’t measured how much it needs, but it’s more than 500 mA. Giving it to little power results in lost Wi-Fi connection.
Cons:
The label doesn't specify minimum power requirements
Other:
The mini USB connection sits a little deep in the chassis, so if your cable is “fat” at the end around the plug you might have some trouble getting the plug all the way in. It doesn’t need to go all the way in, but if you leave it hanging alongside the wall under the socket outlet, for instance, the USB connector will slip out unless it’s plugged all the way in.
Bottomline:
Excellent device. I have recommended it to my colleagues and their all happy with it. Go ahead, buy one.
