Daily deal – D-Link DWL-G730AP pocket travel router for $43.99

My deal of the day is perfect for anyone who is regularly stuck in a hotel room with a wired Internet connection. The D-Link DWL-G730AP is a pocket travel router with three different functions; access point, router and client.

In access point mode, it can turn any wired broadband connection into a wireless connection, allowing you to work wirelessly from the bed (or the pool), without having to unwind 40 feet of cable.

In router mode, it can share that same wired connection with others, you are of course in control of who gets access. This is perfect if you want to open your network up to more than one person (perhaps even just yourself and your husband/wife). Instead of having to share your laptop, you plug the router into the wired network jack, and you can instantly share the connection. This is also perfect for a conference room where there is often only a single wired jack in the wall.

The third mode is the wireless client mode; this turns the D-Link into a wireless network adapter, which is perfect if you are working on a laptop without built in wireless access. The device picks up a wireless network signal, and you can plug it into your laptop, and get online.

The D-Link DWL-G730AP comes complete with a carrying case, an AC adapter, a USB power cord and a network cable. You can purchase the D-Link travel router here, shipping is just $2.95, and you can pay with any major credit card and Paypal.
