    The Satechi Smart Travel Router / Travel Adapter with USB Port adapts to fit into four of the most common plug configurations used around the world and features four different modes for your wireless networking needs. Two options provide charge your device: an AC power port and a USB port. This compact adapter is convenient for charging smartphones, laptops, music players, cameras, e-readers, handheld game consoles, tablets, and other devices all around the world.

    The Smart Travel Router can only support passwords containing letters and numbers. Special characters cannot be used.

    Worldwide compatibility
    Fits electrical outlets in over 150 countries in the US, CA, MX, UK, EU, AU, NZ, HK, and China by sliding the adapter button to extract a prong to match the country you’re visiting.

    Charge two devices simultaneously
    Use the AC power port and the USB port to charge two devices at once.

    Compact and Portable
    All prongs retract to easily transport the Smart Travel Router in a purse, laptop bag, briefcase, carry-on bag, or suitcase.

    Four Networking Modes
    Router: Functions as a typical router, connecting to the internet provided by your ISP and broadcasting a wireless signal, enabling you to create your own network.
    Repeater: Connect to your existing network and amplify it. This enables you to extend the range of your wireless network – invaluable if you have a weak connection in a room far away from your router.
    Access Point: Create a wireless connection from a wired source. If only an Ethernet port or Ethernet cable is available, the router can connect to the wired connection and broadcast a wireless network that all your devices can connect to.
    Client: Connect to a device such as a Smart TV or video game console via an Ethernet cable. The Smart Travel Router can then be used as a wireless adapter, enabling the connected device to connect to the internet wirelessly.

    Note: This charger adapter converts the power prongs only and does not convert electrical output current and voltage. Please make sure your device carries an electrical converter to match the electrical output of the country you will be visiting. This charger adapter is recommended for use with unearthed or double-insulated appliances only, as it contains no grounding.

    How do I set up the travel router to work with a hotel wifi that requires room number...

    How do I set up the travel router to work with a hotel wifi that requires room number and name to be input via a browser screen rather than the straight forward password? There is no Ethernet connection in the room. Many thanks.

    • A.

      The Travel Router does not require internet access to set up, so once you set up Wireless Mode you will be able to access the typical terms and conditions screen or payment input screen by connecting to the hotel’s network. After you finish configuring the Travel Router in Wireless Mode, you could access the terms and conditions login screen through an Internet browser while still connected to the Travel Router’s signal.

    You mentioned the Travel Router support hotel authentication portals. Some hotels charge per device, so I currently I use my laptop with two wireless cards (built-in and USB) to connect to a hotel wifi (1 device) and then use the other wireless card to generate a hotspot for my smartphone. Since the laptop is bulky to travel with, can your Travel Router do the same thing (connect to the hotel wifi and create a hotspot)? Thanks!

    • A.

      Certainly, you can use the Travel Router to create a Wi-Fi network where you can connect your devices and the hotel will still consider it one device.

    How do I set up the travel router in repeater mode? That is not one of the modes listed in the web interface. The web interface shows the following modes: bridge, gateway, ethernet converter and ap client. Following the quick setup for wireless and your video I think I have it set up right but the mode shows as ap client. Is this correct?

    • A.

      Indeed, it is correct and you can even rename the SSID of the repeated signal. Although, it is displayed as AP Client, Repeater Mode is intended to function this way.

    If I set the travel router to Access Point mode at home prior to my travel, then...

    If I set the travel router to Access Point mode at home prior to my travel, then unplug it from electrical outlet during travelling, will it still be in Access Point mode after I reached my destination? Do I always need to have a computer (with a web browser) to switch the travel router between different modes?

    • A.

      If you unplug the Travel Router from the power source and take it elsewhere it will remain in its last mode. However, you will have to re-configure it again since you will be using another network to connect through. You don’t necessarily need a computer to configure it; you could use any device with a web browser, such as a smart phone or a tablet.

    Can I use this to just create a home wireless network without external internet access. I want to connect my apple devices to an apple tv in a hotel room. I don't care about external internet access. Thanks, Jeff

    • A.

      Indeed, it is possible to utilize it this way. All that is needed is for the Travel Router to be plugged into an electrical outlet and connect any devices you would like in your network into the Travel Router’s SSID.

    How can I upgrade the firmware of my Travel Router?

    • A.

To reset the router, first, locate the "reset" button on the side of the router.  Using a paper clip or pin, press and hold this button for about 6 seconds (while plugged into an outlet) then release the reset button.

In the Quick Setting, click on the Exit icon to enter the Advanced Settings. On the left, click Administration then Upload Firmware. Now click on Choose File and browse to the file you downloaded from the product page. Once this is done click Apply and wait for the update to complete. After the update is done reset the router again and proceed with your personal configuration.

    How would I use this smart travel router to login to repeat a hotel wireless system...

    How would I use this smart travel router to login to repeat a hotel wireless system that requires a web based login page? Most hotels require you to enter some information (room number, Login/Pass, etc) and accept terms of use by clicking a box on a web page before the wireless will work. If you disconnect for more than a couple minutes, you usually have to enter this information again. How would this router repeat the hotel wireless or wired internet if you cannot get to the hotel internet wireless page?

    • A.

      To do this, connect the Ethernet cable directly into the Ethernet port of the router. Configure the SSID with your device. Next, open a web browser on your device. You will be prompted to enter your room number and last name. After connecting, you will not need to authorize your other devices.

      The router will register to the hotel's network using its own unique MAC address, so none of the devices need to use their own MAC ID. However, some hotel Wi-Fi systems are able to send cookies to track devices on their network. This can be avoided by changing privacy settings to not accept cookies on the device's browser.

    Finally Finally someone designed something that can be used while travelling and with no need to bring 200 Accessories!

    The Smart Travel Router is super, small and easy to use, it has a step by step user interface you you will achieve the best connection. Its small and nice to handle and if you go travelling you do not meet to bring mobile charger as it has a USB port built in.

    I have been to some hotels that still in year 2013 does not have WiFi, but they have cable internet, the Router is brilliant as you can create your own network and no need for sitting by the desk...

    Another innovative product from Satechi Satechi and innovation are no strangers, but this combination travel adapter/charger/router is great. You don't need to pack a stack of electrical adapters or a separate charger, and the router should also make your travels easier.
