    Solid travel router, July 1, 2012
    By 
    Dennis (Orange County, CA) –

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WR700N Wireless N150 Portable Router, Pocket Design, Router/AP/Client/Bridge/Repeater Modes,150Mpbs (Personal Computers)
    I’ve traveled to too many hotels that offer only a wired ethernet connection with no wireless. If you only need to connect one device, that’s no problem. But if you have multiple devices or wifi only devices (like tablets and mobile phones) a single ethernet connection won’t suffice. After shopping around for a bit, this travel router seemed to be the best portable solution for a reasonable price.

    Here’s my experience with it thus far.

    PERFORMANCE
    Reception is solid. I get five bars on my MBPro from about 100ft away with two walls in between. I plan on using this primarily in hotel rooms, so I have no concerns that I’ll get full coverage wherever I stay. I experienced no hiccups while browsing the web.

    FEATURES
    You can change the SSID and password (wasn’t sure if you had to use the default one printed on the router). Strangely, my network adapter on my PC (Linksys WUSB600N) wouldn’t detect the default SSID, but once I changed the name, I was able to see and connect to the router without a problem.

    You can also choose whether to enable DHCP, IP address range, static IP’s (by MAC address), and lease time. You can also restrict access to the router by MAC address.

    The various modes seem to work as well (access point, router, repeater, bridge, and client), but I use this primarily as an AP.

    Supports the typical encryption settings for wifi (none, WEP, WPA, WPA2).

    Pretty straightforward set of features you’d expect on any basic router. I’m glad they didn’t skimp on any of the core features.

    DESIGN
    They clearly took a cue from Apple’s design and modeled it somewhat after the Airport Express. Even the packaging is elegant and very Apple-esque. It’s a sturdy, small plastic case with a swivel out plug. I wish you could swap the plug with a corded plug like you can with the Airport Express, but I’m being nit-picky. A simple extension cord will solve the problem.

    NOTES
    Note, my router came with English instructions and seems to be packaged for American markets. It also came with firmware 4.18.16 (build 110810) which is the latest version (as of June 2012).

    CONCLUSION
    A solid travel router for a very reasonable price.

    Great as an Access Point Right Out of the Box, but…, August 28, 2012

    This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WR700N Wireless N150 Portable Router, Pocket Design, Router/AP/Client/Bridge/Repeater Modes,150Mpbs (Personal Computers)
    If all you want is a portable AP (Wifi Access Point) and don’t want to change any of the defaults like SSID or Password and do not need a full 300 – 500 MBPS bandwidth, this is the device for you. Just pull it out of the box, cable it to a router port (like the LAN cable in Hotel Rooms) and you are ready to pair your devices. However if you want anything more, read on.

    First to be clear, what is the difference between an Access Point and a Router? A router lets multiple devices (Wifi, cable or both) share an Internet Line like a cable or DSL modem. The router provides all the functions to make this happen. An AP does NOT connect directly to a modem or like device. It REQUIRES that what you connect to a line that already has the functionality of some kind of LAN routing device like a router port. The AP has more limited functionality. It simply allows multiple devices (wifi only in this case) to share a single router port or similar type connection. It has less functionality than a router so is dependent on there already being a router behind it.

    This device can also act as a number of other device types as the description details. There is also much more information on the TP-Link web site. Go there before buying if you want this to do anything other than use this as a default AP device.

    If you do want to access the administration menu to do anything, it does not access like most other routers. Most routers work fine if your computer LAN poert is set to automatic IP and DNIS addressing . Because auto-DNS can cause problems sometimes on wide area networks like in a Hotel or large business, the addressing is static and you have to change your LAN port to a specific configuration if you want to access the menus on this device. That wouldn’t bee too hard if their support web site or user manual was up to date and accurate. It is not. The support FAQs for this device haven’t been updated since Windows Vista and the User Manual since Windows XP. In addition the instructions and FAQs give you a number of IP addresses to connect to this device and only one works. I documented the steps for Windows 7 and will provide them below. In addition, if you want your Ethernet port to work with other devices you might connect after you are done, you will have to change the configuration back when done.

    How to access administration menu:

    Disable Wifi:(there must be no other network connections live)

    Control Panel>Network and Internet>Network and Sharing Center>Change Adapter Settings>Local Area Connection (right click-properties)>Internet Protocol Version 4>Properties>Use the following IP Address: 192.168.0.10>Subnet Mask 255.255.0.0>OK.

    Use browser to log in to cable connected device at 192.168.0.254>admin-admin.

    When completed:
    Control Panel>Network and Internet>Network and Sharing Center>Change Adapter Settings>Local Area Connection (right click-properties)>Internet Protocol Version 4>Properties>Obtain IP Address Automatically>OK.

    This reverts Ethernet Port back to normal.

    Enable Wifi.

    You are done. Once logged in to this device, it configures like any other router. There is no simplified user configuration interface, so don’t go there if you aren’t familiar with router configurations. The Quick Setup menu link in the Main Menu lets you set a few of the basic things, but that is all. Don’t go any further if you do not know what you are doing. Worst case and you get it to where it doesn’t work, hold down the reset button for 30 seconds, not 5 seconds like the manual says. It will revert to factory defaults again.

    A note on telephone support: If you can eventually get through, they are superb!!! Knowledgeable, patient and English speaking.

    English manual is available but not firmware., March 30, 2012
    By 
    Brucer (Florida) –

    There IS English firmware available for this but only if it came that way from the factory. The Chinese firmware cannot be upgraded to English. That’s not a big deal though. The illustrated English manual, should you need it, can be found at tp-link com resources document TL-WR700N_V1_user_gudie pdf and yes, the word ‘guide’ is correctly misspelled as shown. Add dots before com and pdf and forward slashes in the blank spaces. The manual has screenshots to guide you in working with the Chinese firmware in the event you need to change from the default access point mode.
    The nice thing about this device is that, if you want to use it as an access point, just plug it in and you’re done. Although the unit will operate in several modes, the main reason for buying this is to simply make a wired connection wireless as might be desirable in a hotel room.
    Some hotels , particularly overseas, offer free wired internet but not in-room WiFi. If you want to fire up your Kindle Fire to download a book you’ll need wireless and this unit does the trick nicely. Although the flip out plug is the North American standard, it will work on 220 volts as found in many countries as well as 110 volts and 100 volts in Japan.
    The unit does its job nicely and couldn’t be simpler to use. If you get the English version so much the better but it’s not a big deal either way.
