    Or Trendnet TEW 654TR
    It can serve as an access point picking up the wireless signal from your router. It has an ethernet port at the back to add network devices. I have used it successfuly in hotels that supply wireless internet. After establishing a connection to the desired SSID, I then connected my VoIP adapter to the Trendnet device, plugged the hotel phone into the VoIP adapter and I had my own phone setup for the duration of my stay. Worked like a charm
    The Trendnet device can be used 3 ways. It can connect directly to a modem and act as a wireless router for a small area. Or, if a router already exists, it can connect to it by wire and serve as a wireless repeater. Alternatively, it can connect wirelessly to the wireless router and allow a network device to connect to it by ethernet.
