    Would be even cooler if it also had a built in battery, but could easily just use an external battery

    Re: Reviews - TP-LINK WR702N 150Mbps Wireless N Nano Router

    I have one of these currently on the end of a powerline to provide a better wifi signal downstairs (router being 2 floors up).

    This has been rock solid since the day I bought it and has certainly lived up to the job, I now have a strong wireless signal all through my house.

    I have also used it in hotels that provide wireline connectivity only, just connect to the ethernet jack in the room and hey-presto, you have a wifi connection for mobile phones etc.

    Would definitely recommend for simple applications, especially for the price you can pick these up for.

    I've got the model up with 3g/4g dongle support, these are great products
    I use mine currently as my sole home internet connection with a three dongle, rock solid and fast, have also used it in car wth phone charger and in various hotels, I don't leave home without it

    Ah man, got so excited when i saw the picture, but theres no usb host mode and the 2mb of flash memory is not enough for openwrt even though the hardware is supported.
    Would have ordered 3 of these just in case i need backups if it had the above features.

    Ordered one up. Going to use it as a repeater but also tempted by the bridge mode - Just depends on the available throughput.

    I'm not to clued up on networking but would it be possible to have this in router mode and set to create a site-to-site VPN then I'd always haev a secure network and just connect wireless devices to the safe side of the router?

    Just got one, prompted by the review (#effectivepromotion), to act as a bridge for a Sky+ HD box to connect to the home wireless network - out of the box, setup and working within 10 minutes.
    *random monkey joke*

    Wish I'd read the forums before I got the 702, I'd have gone for the 3020 Still, massively impressed with the 702, got it set up as a repeater to cover a dead zone in my house, can stream video to a laptop while cooking now. Probably still get a 3020 as well, useful for when I travel.
