Linksys Wireless-G Travel Router Roger Yu – Nearly all major hotel chains have wired Internet connections in rooms, but many are still lacking in-room Wi-Fi. James A. Martin, who writes a business technology blog called Traveler 2.0, gets around this problem with a Linksys Wireless-G Travel Router.

It’s a small, portable router that lets travelers “take a wireless network wherever you go,” the company says. A guest in a hotel room can establish a Wi-Fi network by connecting the room’s ethernet cable to the device’s port. It also works for several colleagues who want to share one paid Wi-Fi log-on in a hot spot.

Martin says: “You can work wherever you want in the room, instead of at the desk. And if you’re traveling with someone, you can both share the same Internet connection, rather than taking turns.” Link.
