Wireless networks in hotels and other locations are becoming commonplace, but that doesn't mean that they are cheap to use, reliable or secure. Tenda's W300M portable access point/router aims to solve those problems by converting the more secure port-based internet connection to a personalised wireless network.
If you haven't experienced the irritation of booking into a hotel room or arriving at a new destination only to find out that your internet tablet, mobile phone and laptop are all rendered ineffective by the location's solitary wired internet connection or awful wireless signal, then you are a lucky person. Tenda has recognised this problem and designed an irritation-removing device which has the ability to convert a single Ethernet port into a 300Mbps Wireless-N network.
While wired port conversion is the W300M's headline function, it isn't the only task that it is capable of carrying out. The repeater/extender mode allows a weak network signal to be boosted, providing an easy-to-access connection for wireless devices with less powerful adapters, or even wired computers.
With five convenient operating modes and a hassle-free form factor, can Tenda's W300M prove that it is a must have, headache-curing device for frequent travellers or users with network problems?
