    Hi Talon,

    This is such a great device to have while travelling. In 21st century when some hotels still insist on charging for wifi usage, this will come handy. How much does it cost ?

    Cheers !

      It depends who you buy it through. When I researched it, you could get it on Amazon for around $38 USD. And I totally don’t understand why they charge for WiFi! Absolutely ridiculous.

    That’s cool.. Actually been looking for something like that, for vacation. Been in hotels/Condo’s that just have 1 Ethernet plug and no-wifi. Or Wifi is weak.

    Was going to get just a cheap WiFi router, but this would be even better cause it can login to another WiFi and then boost / share its signal.

    Q. Does the 110v plug fold down / lay flat when not in use.

    You should set up a Amazon Referral account pick up a few cents for each sold….

      Yes, the plug folds down flat into the device.

    What is the difference between connecting your smartphone and making it your hotspot and this device? Or making your laptop your hotspot? I usually use my phone as a hotspot, connect my tablet or/and my laptop and use a smart recharger to keep my bateries alive.

      I haven’t tried those methods so I’m not sure. I know when I’ve used my phone as a hotspot before the speeds were much slower. The advantages of this device, though, are the network security and ability to boost a weak signal.

        The security COULD be an advantage when you make a hotspot on your phone. When it comes to laptops you can get the same security performances as this device but you would have to know some technical things so this device is pretty good.

        Regarding the boost of a week signal – I don’t know. Technically if your speed is 30Mbps just plugging in a device the speed won’t go up to 31Mbps.

        I’ve noticed significant speed increases when I go from 1 bar to 5. Just now we used it to boost the signal to our bedrooms because our WiFi router wasn’t quite making it that far, and the boy needs a signal in his man cave.

    The timing of this post is perfect, well, for me anyway. We were just having this conversation the other day, talking about finding a device of this kind for our future travels. We will definitely look into this one. Thanks!
