The TL-WR706N "Halo" sports a 150 Mbps Wireless N connection while the TL-WR810N Wireless Poket Router provides a robust 300Mbs N connection. Both devices plug directly into a standard outlet and provide preconfigured wireless security settings.

Setup is as easy as plugging each device into a power outlet and plugging in the hotel's Ethernet cable which allows the devices to run as an access point.
