Depending upon how you access the Internet, particularly when you are on the road, TP-LINK has a couple of new products they are introducing to help share that Internet portal.

First, we have the 150Mbps Wireless N Mini Pocket Router (TL-WR700N).

This device will be available on the 23rd for a MSRP of $29.99 and can be used to create an instant Wi-Fi hotspot by simply plugging in an Ethernet cable from your existing network or modem.

This device perks my interest for when I am on the road and I need to create a Wi-Fi access point in a hotel room.  In my experience, getting wired Internet access is usually quite easy.  Getting Wi-Fi access is normally problematic at best…

Second, we have the TP-LINK Portable 3G/3.75G Wireless N Router (TL-MR3020).

TL-MR3020-01TL-MR3020-02

This device connects to the Internet via 3G cellular networks, the same network your mobile phone uses, to keep you online and connected anywhere. With its travel-size design, this Router is compact enough to take on the road and share its 3G Internet connection wherever coverage is available.  This particular device will be available in mid December for a MSRP of $39.99.

Of course, you need a 3G capable UMTS/HSPA/EVDO 3G USB modem to make use of this device, which many of you road warriors probably have.
