TP-Link intros 802.11n pocket router, portable 3G router

Routers bring compact design

TP-Link has expanded its 802.11n router lineup with a new pocket router and a portable router for 3G modems. The pocket router enables users create a Wi-Fi network after connecting it to a network or modem via Ethernet. Users can also configure the device to work as a range extender or a wireless bridge to expand the connectivity of existing Wi-Fi networks.

The portable router provides a USB port that is compatible with many 3G modems that utilize HSPA, UMTS or EVDO standards. The device does not provide an internal battery, requiring power to be provided via USB or an external adapter. Aside from the 3G router functionality, it can also be used as a traditional Wi-Fi access point, range extender or bridge.

The pocket router is expected to ship on November 23 for $30, while the 3G router will not arrive until December 14 for $40.

    Almost there

    I want a portable router that can connect to one WiFi network for its Internet connection, and then offer up another new WiFi network to its clients.

    Hotels are removing their wired internet connections. It makes it hard to share it between by MacBook, iPhone, and iPad.

    And even if I can connect all three, I want some security from the other guests at the hotel. I don't want them seeing my iTunes, file sharing, etc.
