Just what the Doktor ordered!
I needed a small device to allow my tablet, camera, and laptop to connect wirelessly (without a WAN connection). My own stand-alone network. This can do exactly that and a heck of a lot more. It's a breeze to set up as an AP. Just plug it in and connect. Worked like a charm.. However! configuring this device does require reading the instructions. Basically that you have to do some fiddly changes with your IP and Mask. Instructions are clear on this. Once there you have to set the device "working mode" as router. (and thus enable DHCP, which is not enabled by default) Once this is done (and you have changed the default passwords and SSID) it works now as a DHCP server. You can plug it into the WAN and it gets one IP and can then serve multiple devices as well as work alone. Power wise, right now it's working off my USB hub (mid power) with no issues. It even runs off my bluetooth headset charger (micro USB) This thing has a lot of features! More than I would have expected. Firewall, QoS, MAC Binding... read the info. About my only gripe is it could use some rubber feet so it doesn't slide off the table. The network cable is one of those thin/flat types. Reasonably made. Power cord is about 3ft long. I'll be back later after more playing.
