RavPower FileHub Plus Wireless Travel Router
$33.99 on Amazon (normally $40)
Going on a trip? Don’t leave home without this portable networking companion. Not only can the RavPower FileHub Plus turn a hotel Ethernet connection into your own personal (and secure) Wi-Fi network, it also acts as a wireless media hub, capable of streaming video, images or music from a connected hard drive, memory card or a USB storage stick to multiple iOS and Android phones and tablets. Oh, and it also packs in a portable battery that can fully recharge a dying iPhone. (Note: Just to be super-clear, the RavPower FileHub won’t let you browse the Internet unless it’s connected to a wired or wireless Internet connection.)
TP-Link AC750 Dual Band WiFi Range Extender RE200
$18.99 on Amazon (normally $30)
Here’s an easy—and cheap—way to give your home Wi-Fi network a boost. Just plug the TP-Link Wi-Fi Range Extender RE200 into a wall outlet, preferably in a room with a weak wireless signal, then connect it to your Wi-Fi router. Once connected, the RE200 will piggypack onto your router’s wireless signal, boosting it in the process. A little LED indicator on the extender will let you know if the unit is too far from your router.
