Looks just the job. Hotels often only want to give out a limited number of access codes. This should get the whole family on line! Thanks

Thanks ordered

You're both welcome.

It can also be used at home as a wifi extender to get rid of dead wifi spots. So not just for business travelling and holidays.

Just in time for my holidays - perfect! :)

so how does it extend the wifi? you configure the device to connect to the wifi from the hotel and it just broadcast its own hotspot for your devices?

Yup, that's how it reads to me. Or you can plug it into hotel LAN, sign up and broadcast WiFi. Or plug into your home lan as a Wifi extender.

(and it's a USB power point too ;) )

Bought this over the TPlink, thanks OP! great for my upcoming holiday :)
#10
Now out of stock but still available at this price if you can wait 2-4 weeks. I go on holiday 15th August so have placed an order hoping it comes through in time!
Note that you have to pick "More Buying Options" to get this price.

Hey OP nice find, Netgear is a nice and reliable brand from my experience though the replacement router that I bought isn't getting any use unfortunately, my sister said shes having problems connecting to it so stuck with ISPs crappy one. :(

Also OP how easy is this to use with my existing setup, wanna get the range extended for my tab and smartphone. :)
#12
For maximum convenience, give it the same ssid and password as your home router. Devices will just connect without having to re-configure them.
#13
So would this mean that I have secure wifi connection at public places, like coffee shops, trains and hotels?

I'm always v wary of trusting their wifi as I've seen how easy it is to exploit them
#14
Cheers OP - ordered. Delivery is now 2-4wks though.
#15
If you know your neighbours password it's free internet time.

No, this acts as a repeater, it won't stop man in the middle exploits. You'd need a vpn, proxy or etc to browse securely.

Premier Inn Offer 3 Devices
Haven Holidays Offer 1 Device

This is a life saver when you have a bunch of family along with you.

Damn - been looking for something like this....gone up to £43.95 :-(

See under more buying options. It is still £19.10 to order from Amazon but there will be a wait as it isn't currently in stock now. Probably due to several people purchasing from hukd!

I don't own this item so cannot comment on what it is like to actually use it. Saw it was the cheapest price it has been and sharing the deal with fellow members as it may be of use to some.

I think you just sync it with your existing router and away you go.

Cheers just ordered, hopefully be here before my holiday in September and also plan to use it with caravan club wifi as you can only connect one device at a time on that

Scancomputers are selling it for £19.08, with free collect from Argos
#25
How does this work? I need to extend my wi-fi in my new house but I haven't got a plug by my router at the min so I have to use a extention lead, is this one of them that works through the sockets?
#26
Just brought one !!!

Thanks thetarget

So what does this mean then?

Add Security to Public WiFi Hotspots
With NETGEAR Trek you can create a secure, private firewall protected network for all of your devices when you connect to public hotspots

It means this creates a private wlan that your devices connect to. If you then connect this to a public hotspot, it is still possible for people to snoop unencrypted data sent between this and the hotspot and/or use a man in the middle attack. Having a firewall won't stop that.

The only way to stop that is by encrypting your data and having a secure endpoint. ie use a vpn.

Thanks nublets

Any recommendations on vpn providers?

You are talking another level of security now - if you are on a http (non secure) connection, security probably doesn't really matter (someone might be able to see what you're looking at, but it generally wouldn't include anything significant) - when you move to https (secure) connection, everything is encrypted anyway - anywhere you enter bank details and most email clients would work with an encrypted connection.

The firewall part stops outsiders gaining access to your devices directly via the network...
#32
Thanks OP. Have ordered one to improve the range in my garden.
#33
Took one to Spain on holiday a few weeks ago as the hotel wifi only lets you connect one device.
Works pretty well, very easy to setup but found it to be very flakey; dropped connection to my laptop a lot and rebooted itself every 15 mins or so. But better than nothing, let me use my phone, laptop, kindle etc
#34
Worth updating the firmware on it if you do buy.

HTTPS is great as long as you're connected to the real website. There are plenty of ways to spoof the website.
#36
Agreed - but linking to a VPN won't help you there... Your best bet for that is to have anti phishing software - sometimes part of anti virus... Using public or personal wifi doesn't make a difference to that problem..

Yes it will. You can't redirect arp, session hijack or spoof/strip ssl if it's encapsulated within a vpn.

Anti phishing software probably won't stop it. That'll only work if the url isn't right for the official domain. If the ssl is stripped or spoofed but the domain is right it'll probably assume it's not a phishing site.

Also tablets are even more vulnerable due to the lack of in browser security options.

HSTS should make things more difficult, but not all websites use it. I just sniffed my HUKD and Hotmail passwords without warning.

Was the hotel Wifi stable? If that was flakey to start with then it could explain why the device was.

Worth checking you have the latest firmware for it and running it at home in case you got a dud.

Good point, as this device takes the only login I had, I coulnt test if it was the device or the wifi. It definitely kept rebooting itself though. I had the latest firmware, it pushed the update giving me a popup to tell me about it (nice)

This has gone back up to £19.89 like it was when I first posted the deal.
