Customer Reviews of D-Link DWL-G730AP High Speed 2.4GHz (802.11g) Wireless Pocket Router/AP
Great Little Travel W/L Router!5/14/2009
This is a great unit. I used it as a temporary at home when my regular w/l router went bad. It ran a bit warm so I didn't leave it always on. But performance was really good for a small unit without an external antenna.
the smallest router I had bought so far, the configuration is easy, fast. three different functions can be used in many application.
DWL-G730AP - a great tool!2/18/2009
This unit is unbelievably easy to use, small and easy to carry, and has as much power as much larger, more expensive units. If you travel, the size is perfect - and the case does a great job of protecting the unit. I facilitate training and many of the plants do not have multiple LAN ports in the conference rooms - this bridges that gap. I have had as many as 6 people using the unit with no apparent performance issues. Great device!!!
Small(a must for travelers), set up was done in less than a minute if you follow the Quick Installation Guide instructions, works as it is supposed to. In my case, I chose WEP security, and logging into the secured router was very easy from both computers. Easy to hide under the desk, or a shelf, couldn't ask for more.
This router is great!1/22/2008
Easy to setup, it works as a 'private network' (in router mode) between my laptop and my camera's 'Eye-Fi' wireless SD memory card. Range and speed makes my job easier - No tethering to the camera!
I've had this item for a year now and really love it. I use it when traveling as a wireless router. Many hotel rooms provide internet support, but few have wireless connections. Most have a wired connection, which means you're stuck at the desk with the connection. Now with this item I just plug the existing wired connection into the wireless router, and I'm free to roam the room with my laptop.
I have been using this product for several months now and I will sumarize it in one word Excellent!!!! You are definetly getting more than what you paid for.
Great for an Apple!9/18/2005
I purchased a used eMac G4-700 without the wireless Airport...doesn't work with the Airport Extreme card (their latest version) and Apple doesn't make this part anymore. So now I have a network connection without running wires into the bonus room and when friends/family visit with their laptops, they have access to the broadband connection. Very affordable solution for compatibility to B and G networks.
Five star product8/19/2005
Technology is amazing. I was looking for an item to connect my VOIP phone adapter to the wifi home network, so that my cordless phone is close to the base, and I can use speaker on the base. Before making the purchase, I worry about the possible complicated configuration. When I receive the item, I was first impressed by the whole package, it is neat and compact, including everything needed on the road. I read the guide, there is nothing new there. Then I just set it at client mode, and plug in the power, connect to the VOIP phone adapter. 10 seconds later, I can make the phone call! I have not tired the other two modes. I am also wondering how to use it at any hotspot such as T-mobile. But, I can use cell phone anyway when I am on the road unless I want to make international calls through VOIP. Conclusion: highly recommended.
A very unique and original product1/3/2005
I purchased it becausee it was cheap for an AP, but found out that it does a whole lot more than what I bargained for. The most unique feature is that it has a physical switch to make it a wireless router, an access point, or a bridge (client mode) to be used as a game adapter. In wireless router mode, the Ethernet port connects to your cable/DSL modem, and provides standard DHCP, NAT, and basic WiFi router features. In AP mode, the Ethernet port connects to an existing router, and acts as an access point, nothing fancy there either. In client mode, the Ethernet port connects to the Ethernet port of any device (straight cable), and joins an existing WiFi network. In each mode, the web configuration screens are different to reflect the respective features. Here we have one 802.11g device that's highly portable (or concealable) for 3"x2.5"x0.5", does 3 jobs with all required functions, and relatively cheap. Also, since there is only one Ethernet port, in router mode you cannot attach any local devices.
Good product for the money12/28/2004
First of all, I don't believe there is a reason why access points should cost more than wireless routers. This is a relatively low-cost 802.11g wireless access point with unique features. The physical switch allows you to enable this as a router in case you want that option, which is good for traveling and plugging into hotel's broadband connection. Also note that since there is no LAN port, configuration has to be done via the WAN port (so you better remember the IP address) or wirelessly. The reception is poor, perhaps because there is no antenna. For short-range usage (less than 500 sq ft), I consider this a good product.
