Conveniently small and light to pack and take on the road, enjoy this router, creating Wi-Fi network via Ethernet, 3G/4G USB modem or WISP.
TP-LINK TL-WR902AC - wireless router - 802.11a/b/g/n/ac - desktop is rated 2.8 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Ray on a boat from Might work okay, but can't see the 5 GHz network it needs toThis product seems to be one of the only devices with WISP. I need to connect to a WiFi network and create my own somewhat secure network. This device does that decently on 2.4 GHz. However, the WISP setting can't see the one 5 GHz network I need to see, which my laptop sitting right next to it sees just fine. I'm guessing its a channel range thing, because it sees other 5 GHz networks, just not the one I need. And you can't change the channel range on this device. It might work just fine, just not what I need it for.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Sale Engineer from Good general purpose API have purchased 10 for a project that requires a local wifi between a tablet and hard connected PC. Configuring as a AP can only be done via the Wizard. Configuring via the advance seems to crash the unit. Range is good for the project and when working, it works great. Unable to configure to use the USB port to tether an iPhone for internet access (either as an AP or as a router). Hoping future releases will address bug issues and include the support for tethering.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Traveling Horseman from Buggy, unsafe, and unsupportedGot this to replace a previous N travel router to take advantage of the less congested 5GHz range. Had a somewhat buggy set up but was able to work around it. Would be a decent travel router, except: 1. It is not possible to disable WPS on the 5GHz radio. To be clear, the admin page lets you set it to off, it just doesn't actually turn it off. WPS is a long broken/insecure protocol that should have been removed years ago, or at least off by default, but this is the worst possible scenario - on by default and impossible to turn off. 2. This router is vulnerable to the KRACK vulnerability when run in the modes typically used for a travel router, which means it is potentially exposing all of your traffic to your fellow travels. 3. Neither of the above would be that bad as long as they were being addressed, but they aren't. This product appears to have had no updates whatsoever for its US version since its release over a year ago. As of this writing, the most recent (and only) firmware version available is from 2016-09-05. This is inexcusable. There are multiple known problems, including an extremely high profile security vulnerability, and nothing is being done. I don't know how TP-Link can think it is reasonable to abandon a product immediately after its release, but I won't be sticking around to deal with it any longer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Josh from So far it's greatBought this to set up in a hotel room with reportedly slow Wifi. Interested to see if I can create a local network in my hotel room using WISP to access my servers at home to watch my TV when I want to while using a Roku in a hotel which has become much easier but might be even better using this little gem. So far programming is very easy and using a borrowed Xfinity Wifi connection I have this programmed and working like a champ in just about 20 mins. Full access to my personal Plex server and all of my home network needs while connected remotely. I will be taking this on the road and will report back any issues I find.
