"These little routers remove your hotel-desk shackles. Plug one into your hotel room's broadband cable, and you've converted your room into a Wi-Fi hot spot. Travel routers let you compute anywhere in the room that you darn well please--heck, if you book a room next to the pool, you might be able to connect from the poolside."
CNET runs through the following four routers and provides pros & cons of each:
Apple's AirPort Express
Netgear's WGR101 Travel Router
3Com's Office Connect Travel Router
Asus's WL-330 Access Point
Any of these would free you from the hotel wires, but which is the best? You'll have to click the post title for the answer. I'm thinking of buying one of these babies to "sublet the subnet"....if the hotel charges me $10 a day, I could offer wireless access to several rooms around me for $5 and make a few bucks! Just kidding Paris Hilton....I wouldn't want to take any money out of daddy's pocket! ;)
