On-the-Go Wireless Access
The ZyXEL MWR102 is the perfect travel companion for anyone who needs fast, easy wireless internet access on the go. Designed with a portable form factor that easily fits into a pocket, a laptop case, or the palm of your hand, it’s theperfect way to bring a wireless connection with you whether in the office or on the road.Many ultra-portable devices like PDAs, tablets, handheld game consoles, and even some laptops no longer accept a wired connection, limiting their functionality in locations without wireless access. The MWR102 combines a miniature router and wireless access point to create the perfect way to share high-speed wireless internet access in hotel rooms, conference rooms, or anywhere a wired broadband connection is available.
Big things from a small package
The MWR102 doesn’t sacrifice performance in favor of its portability. 2.4GHz wireless technology allows 11n datatransfer rates of up to 150Mbps while still remaining compatible with older 11b/g devices.
Powered by USB for extreme portability
Because power outlets are often in short supply while travelling, the MWR102 can be USB-powered to ensureconvenient internet access anywhere.
Setting up a secure wireless connection couldn’t be simpler. Each MWR102 ships with a different default SSID and encryption enabled by default. Just check the bottom ofthe MWR to find out the security key used by your router, or change it to one of your own choosing.
Advanced Security Features
To provide the highest data security possible, the MWR102 supports WEP, WPA, and WPA2 encryption. It also comes equipped with firewall features like NAT (NetworkAddress Translation), VPN pass-through, and SPI (Stateful Packet Inspection) to prevent attacks from the internet.
Customer Reviews of ZyXEL MWR102 Wireless N Pocket Travel Router and Access Point
Great little travel router - if I'll ever receive5/3/2014
I had one for a year and like it very much - it's very small, USB powered, easy to configure, size of a soap bar (only thinner) - in other words, perfect travel router. That is why I ordered second unit for my in-laws, who travel a lot. The problem is - the unit never arrived. If it does, I am sure it will be just fine, especially at such a low price. The big question is: will it arrive?
Very good pocket router.
ultra portable and full featured for its size!
Great little travel router!11/2/2013
Works great out of the box! Brought it to my hotel and I was able to access the internet for my iPhone and netbook using wifit!
Good for Travelling7/5/2013
Very small but it works.
Compact and flexible5/1/2013
This is my second unit. Both units are used as wifi bridges for the ethernet-only DVD player and printer. Provides connectivity 30 feet and three walls away. Not difficult to set up (google for step-by-step instructions), and once configured, I can forget that they are there. Very good value for money.
Versatile and Small2/19/2013
This device is versatile; functioning as a router or wireless bridge. Since it is TINY, and can be powered by a USB cable, it can really be used anywhere. Con : It can't handle WPA2 wireless encryption.
Extremely limited range1/21/2013
Was a bit harder to set up out of the box than some routers I've used. Range is VERY limited — you must be within a few feet of the device. It's not so much good for the wireless aspect as it is useful for a laptop like the Macbook Air that has no ethernet connector.
Tiny, easy to use and good range12/12/2012
I bought it from Buy.com for $19.99. It is very small, easy to carry. Setting up was simple too - the only thing I did was changing the default password. The range is also good. My laptop and cellphone were 15 feet away from the router and signal was excellent. I didn't try how far I can go. But I believe it is good enough for using in hotel.
Works well, easy connection, tiny.12/4/2012
Only tried it as a router so far. Connected out of the box easily. Nice secitiry feature set. User manual well written other than when you want to configure it say "make sure you are properly connected" it should tell you you need to have a wire connection as you can't connect to the web based management through a wireless connection. Tested at home 8ft away and had excellent signal strength. I am trying it at a hotel next week.
2 Months Later ...10/8/2012
This router was a good buy at $20 but after 2 months it stopped working!!! Beware ...
easy use small router10/5/2012
This small router is very easy to use and good for travel
great little router when you are in a bind. cant stay to far away from it
Terrific pocket router9/21/2012
This little router connects in minutes, retains its configurations and allows a couple dozen users internet access. Much cheaper than the Apple unit and very useful for business travelers.
Skeptical at first however upon receiving it and hooking it up I was thoroughly impressed at how easy it was to set up. Powerful...as powerful as any standard size router out there...especially for the size! Flexibility of 3into1 modes is spectacular. It packs the bare essentials into a little package so you scale out to however you see fit. I have not even explored the GUI yet...that's how easy it was to set up. This device is a MUST for anyone that is looking to easily scale out and/or broaden their existing wireless (or wired) network(s). To be honest I should have bought a couple more of them!
This router is amazing. It has the same range as my larger router does. I cant forward ports on this router though.
Very good product6/24/2012
The ZyXEL wireless travel router has saved the day more than once since I purchased it. I've used it in the US and also internationally where it has worked flawlessly. On a recent travel, the phone lines were sporadic at best, I used the travel router to connect multiple devices (Blackberry, HP computer, iPad ) to the Internet.
Great item! I do e-clicker quizzes with my students which require all of us to be on the same wireless network. The secured networks have inhibited this capability on their wireless networks. Now this device is MY wireless server that we all connect to, thus allowing me to continue using a very useful app with my students anywhere I have power!
Simple, Reliable, Excellent Investment4/19/2012
The ZyXEL Portable Wireless Router worked great! My family travel a lot and we always bring along our Apple divices (iPad, MacBook Pro, iPhone). Once I got the ZyXEL connected we were able to stay in contact with friends and family while relaxing in the hotel suite. Plus traveling with the router was extremely easy and simple. One of the best purchases I made in quite a while. It works very well, easy to install, and very powerfull. Best thing = Very Portable (size of deck of cards). Excellent!
I bought this wireless router because my previous one had stopped working; different brand this this. So far this product has worked great without any issue. It was really easy to hookup and setup. The range is good as well covers my house with good strength.
Small but POWERFUL3/19/2012
I setup this AP as an extension to my Wireless Router Upstairs to power my gaming console's access to the internet, plus connected another router to it to provide a private GUEST ACCESS Connection on a different network segment. Works FLAWLESSLY. I highly recommend this product!
Tiny Package that works!3/6/2012
I was amazed at how small this travel router really is. It will travel well. Pluged it into my Linksys router, input the password and now I have super fast Wireless n for my Iphone. As opposed to normal g. It works perfectly. It is a five.
