The best wireless travel routers are small devices that you can carry with you on the road to build your own private and efficient Wi-Fi bubble in hotel rooms, conference centers, or just about anywhere else. They’re perfect for frequent travelers who want to stay connected without relying on inefficient and insecure Wi-Fi hotspots.
The TP-Link TL-WR902AC is an amazing little travel router that provides some of the best output we’ve seen, considering the fact that it’s compact enough to fit in a pocket at 2.64×2.91×0.9 inches and 7.2 ounces, so you’ll be able to set up your own Wi-Fi zone pretty much anywhere.
This small router not only provides incredible dual-band Wi-Fi performance—up to 433Mbps on the 5GHz 802.11ac side—but it’s also extremely flexible, as it can be used not only as a router or access point to build a wireless network, but even as a range extender, a private Wi-Fi hotspot for WISP networks, or even as a Wi-Fi client to connect a wired computer to a Wi-Fi network through a wired link

I’m planning to set up a cellular hotspot in a remote area (basically a utility shed out in the middle of a field). We need to be able to communicate with a few pieces of network equipment (no computers) via VPN via this hotspot. Is there a tiny fanless computer that could allow a VPN link back to our office via this hotspot that anyone has suggestions for? It could be OpenVPN, IPsec, PPTP, or even SSL – whatever is small and inexpensive will suffice. Installing a Raspberry Pi and running OpenVPN on it was one of my options. However, since this setup would be helped by people who aren’t entirely technical inclined, it would be good if there was anything that didn’t involve too much work via command line. GUI implementations would be advantageous.
We also use a couple of PIX501s (without fans) within digital signs to build an AES-256 IPSEC VPN tunnel back to our network for sign updates.
On eBay, they’re about $20, which is even less than a Raspberry PI 🙂
Top 10 best portable travel routers
The HooToo Wireless Travel Router has a lot to offer. It’s also a portable battery, a media streamer, and a way of transferring files to, from, and between your mobile devices, in addition to its primary purpose of improving internet connections.
The issue is that we do not live in an ideal setting. Far too often, combo units like this are crammed with features that aren’t very useful, struggle to meet basic travel specifications like sturdiness and durability, or are too bulky and heavy to be used on a daily basis.
It’s a thin, but not particularly light unit, measuring around 1.7″ x 1.7″ x 3.7″ (4cm by 4cm by 9.5cm) and weighing 8.8oz (250g). Rubber flaps keep dirt and dust out of the ports, which are also protected by a top-mounted power button and small status lights.
When it comes to having more available Internet, you have a few options. Bridge mode is the most useful choice for travelers. This rebroadcasts an established Wi-Fi network with a stronger signal under a different network name.
If you’re stuck in an old-school hotel where using a network cable is the cheapest or only option, you can transform it into a wireless network by plugging it into the HooToo’s Access Point mode. There’s also a Router mode, but unless you’re carrying a cable or DSL modem in your backpack, you’re not going to use it much on the path.

For my fellow network ninjas, I’ve written a message. I managed to install and set up OpenVPN on OpenWrt inside my little HooToo HT-TM02 yesterday with the help of my networking sensei, Ale Ramos. Some people would think that’s nonsense, but if you know what that means, you know it’s a big deal.
When that succeeded, I was ecstatic! So much so that I spent last night in Inkscape drawing the HooToo above, and I’m very pleased with the outcome. Don’t you think it looks good? With that drawing and the VPN, I’m rediscovering my trusty travel router. It’s like having a Christmas gift.
I’m not going to say anything else. My fellow ninjas (I’m looking at you, Lu) are able to obey basic directions. What I’m trying to do here is set up an OpenVPN client link to my server, and then make every HooToo wireless station send its internet traffic through that VPN, which is a common way to get around internet restrictions in Cuba (both internal and external).
I must admit that I struggled to get the firewall to work and ended up opening it much too much. Accepting INPUT traffic on your WAN zone (the one that faces the internet) is probably not something you want to do, but it’s needed for the VPN to function. Set it to ACCEPT or leave it at REJECT and create a traffic rule that allows incoming VPN traffic.
