Today's computing world is becoming more and more a mobile one. We see netbooks, laptops, thin and lights, desktop replacements and mobile offices. Even our phones are moving towards this mobile lifestyle. In the course of normal business people move from access point to access point and whether this is wired or wireless does not matter.
Our lives and business is conducted in small pools of connectivity. This applies even more if you are heading from hotel to hotel. In many cases you have multiple options for getting on line. Either you can hit up the hotel's terrible (in most cases) wireless or you have an option for wired connectivity.
But how do you keep yourself protected, or share that single connection or indeed how do you keep from being stuck around the RJ-45 jack? Well, the answer is to use a Travel Router. These handy devices allow you to use a single Ethernet connection and turn it into a wireless access point complete with firewall and wireless encryption. Some of these even allow you act as a wireless firewall (its connected to the open wireless network while you are safe behind it).
Today we are taking a look at the TEW-654TR N specification travel router from TRENDnet. This is a multi-function wireless device that is an outstanding tool for anyone on the road.
