When I am traveling I will generally carry a small Netgear router with me. This has a few purposes, first quite often end up with a room at the end of the hall and the hotel wifi signal there SUCKS! In this situation, I plug my router into the hard wired internet connection in the room and then I have solid reliable wifi. Second, I tend to either travel with my family or with multiple devices. The router is the connection to the hotel network, so that means all the other devices we bring with us don't have to authenticate! I have also used it to do things like use a Chromecast on a hotel TV, or share files with a co-worker two rooms away. Anyone else do the same? If you have other reasons for doing so, what are they?
