More user-configurable security features
Even though the DIR-505 currently commands a premium price, I'd still probably opt to purchase it - primarily because it does have WPS and is Wi-Fi Certified. However, I'm certain that a lot of consumers will buy a less expensive, non-certified product and gamble that it will work with their equipment. But I also suspect that D-Link will face a lot of pricing pressure from the TP-LINK TL-WR700N and other devices that perform similar duties and cost much less.
Small and compact, Integrated power
The D-Link DIR-505 doesn't offer stellar connection speeds weren't stellar, but they were fast enough and dependable enough to give you decent wireless while out on the road. Although the design presents some niggles, this is handy solution to the connection woes of travelling workers.
Rugged build-quality, compact size
The D-Link DIR-505, priced at Rs. 2,299 should definitely be considered as an essential piece of hardware in your travelling kit. The rugged build-quality, compact size and quick configuration are its USP and we recommend this product for every office and business traveller.
Very good router
The Western Digital N750 is a wired and dual band wireless router that uses the 2.5 and 5 Ghz spectrum and has 4 Giabit ethernet ports. Out of the box the router was a breeze to setup. Admittedly I am fairly experienced and would usually set this up manually, but to review for those that aren't in that place I used the setup wizard. Using the wizard I was up and running in a few minutes.
The wireless portion of the router works fine with disparate adapters.
TEW-712BR - entry level router, good value for the price
This is an entry level router 150mbps is the max single channel wireless N speed. It is also *very* inexpensive.
The LAN and WAN ports are all just 10/100. This isn't for power users. This is a good upgrade for an older wireless G router when you have modest needs for speed and better range.
The unit I got was tried for just that purpose. It replaced an old linksys 54Mbps Wireless G router to improve range and streaming performance to a smart sharp aquios tv.
The only minor issue I encountered was a somewhat buggy bios when the unit arrived. Using the internal software, the unit happily downloaded and installed its own firmware update from Asus. After that, this unit has been an excellent upgrade to my network. You will notice an improvement over older technology almost immediately. I first noticed this during configuration, and when browsing around the web. Several games and apps that I had issues with hanging or lag disappeared.
Easy and Powerful
With the router that came with my high speed internet service, I had been having sporadic coverage in most of my house including a "weak" signal on my internet enabled TV in the very next room. Streaming movies and even music was hit and miss. I considered getting a range extender but as we all know, the chain is only as strong as the weakest link. After reading several reviews and product specs, I narrowed my search to the 6200.
Excellent bargain router, but not without it's quirks
Bought this to replace the shockingly poor D-Link DSL-2640R which was unable to maintain a stable connection (i.e. frequent disconnects) and, more annoyingly still, would not reconnect quickly (or at all sometimes) after it had dropped the connection.
The TP-Link by contrast is a marvel, holds the connection well and - should the line have problems - reconnects quickly and without requiring a reboot.
Great little device
I've used an older version of this little router (E853) and it has been a lifesaver on all overseas trips. I am yet to find a network that it does not support. I tested out my new E586E and it's just as good when it comes to functionality and it seems to work faster. I like the look of an all black device too. A few notes that I wished that someone had told me before: T-Mobile in USA will not work on any speed above G2/EDGE, so it's painstakingly slow. No issues with T-Mobile overseas.
3G router, hotspot, Ethernet-to-WiFi adapter, relatively easy to use, USB powered, well priced
The ASUS WL-330N3G is a mobile router with lots of useful functions. Not only can it be used to distribute a 3G broadband connection, it can also act as a hotspot and even as a regular wireless router for a wired Internet connection. It's very versatile and it's also affordable. It's a good tool for any business user's briefcase.
Pocket-sized 3G router
The Asus WL-330N3G is a mobile router with lots of useful functions. Not only can it be used to distribute a 3G broadband connection, it can also act as a hotspot and even as a regular wireless router for a wired Internet connection. At Bangalore, we found that the WL-330N3G could be purchased at an end-user price of Rs. 2,700. Thus being versatile and affordable, it is a good tool for any business user's briefcase
Ultra portable, Large, versatile feature set
Leave it to Asus to create a router that can also act as a repeater, access point, Ethernet adapter, hotspot, and 3G sharing device. While that versatility is great on its own, add in the fact that this device will fit in your pocket and that makes it a truly exciting product for users on the go. The price of $69.99 for all of this is well worth it and Asus makes setup as easy as possible with their intuitive web interface.
Great portable travel router
This little portable router worked perfectly, with the setup minimal. Only thing missing was a case or pouch to carry it.
I went to Las Vegas recently with my Nexus 7 tablet, which does not have a wired ethernet port. I also assumed that some of the hotels in Vegas still had wired internet connections in their rooms. My stay was at the Monte Carlo, which only has the wired connection in the room.
Useful and portable tool for sharing a 3G web connection
TP-Link's TL-MR3020 is a useful and portable tool for sharing a 3G web connection, and it offers very good value in comparison to similar products. We found consistent and reliable performance in our tests. The router isn't locked to a mobile network, although it's worth checking that your USB dongle is compatible before you buy by going to the TP-Link website and searching for 3G/3.75G USB Modem Compatibility List.
HSPA+ Performance Notably Better Than HSDPA
Three has landed something of a coup with the Huawei E586 MiFi. Its HSPA+ coverage is far from universal, but where it is available the E586 enjoys speeds which are a vast improvement over standard 3G. The E586 is also stylish, light and well made with an excellent OLED screen which provides all the at-a-glance information you need.
