Just also found this one which looks identical but cheaper.

Jon,

There are some REALLY small ones you can use, like this:

http://www.amazon.com/ASUS-Multi-Mode-Pocket-Router-WL-330NUL/dp/B00CWIRMRC/ref=sr_1_10?ie=UTF8&qid=1394171356&sr=8-10&keywords=travel+router

It is essentially the size of a thumb drive and weighs three ounces. It
can also operate as a wired ethernet adapter when you want/need that
instead (if you have a MBA or rMBP without a port, this can replace the
thunderbolt ethernet adapter, and is just as small).

Its a really versatile little device -- read the user comments at the above
page -- and it adds next to nothing to your travel bag.

Agreed it can be done - but I already carry more than enough stuff and was
hoping to reduce the load not increase it.

Interesting. Wonder if it will work in hotel rooms? The Chromecast
(despite being advertised as great for travel) will not for the most
part and has been a complete waste of money as far as I'm concerned -
luckily it was cheap.

I always travel with a portable wireless router ... so I can avoid
having to pay for multiple login's to a hotels network. It also allows me
to setup a fairly secure wireless network between the devices I travel with
(laptops, iphone, ipad, etc).

This eliminates the problem with Chromecast (although I don't bring mine
when I travel) and similar devices.
