The Bottom Line The WGR101 has a couple of nice touches you won't find in other travel routers. Unfortunately, it's neither as elegantly designed nor as full featured as Apple's more expensive AirPort Express. The OfficeConnect Travel Router is light and portable. Unfortunately, it's neither as elegantly designed nor as full featured as Apple's more expensive AirPort Express. The Belkin Wireless-G Travel Router combines great design and support, a low price, and decent performance, making it an obvious choice for business travelers who need Wi-Fi connectivity. Tiny and affordable, the TP-Link 150Mbps Wireless N Nano Router makes a great companion for mobile users needing to share their hotel room's Internet with wireless clients. This is among the best compact wireless-networking devices available.
