Why would I use this device?
Ideal for creating a personal Wi-Fi signal on the go, the Trek PR2000 is designed with portability in mind. A built-in mains adapter and micro USB allows you to use the router virtually anywhere. The Trek PR2000 is highly versatile. It can act as a range extender to boost a weak Wi-Fi signal, or transform a single Ethernet port into a wireless access point, allowing you to connect multiple portable Wi-Fi devices.

The inclusion of two wired 10/100 fast Ethernet ports allow the device to be used as a wireless bridge for wired devices that lack wireless capabilities. Alternatively, you can attach one of the Ethernet ports directly to a DSL cable modem to allow the Trek PR2000 to function as a wireless router. This is particularly useful if you are in a hotel room that has Ethernet ports but no Wi-Fi.

Can I transfer media using this device?
The inclusion of a USB 2.0 port allows you to attach an external USB storage device such as a USB flash drive or external USB hard drive. NETGEAR ReadySHARE USB allows you to access these devices, while outside intrusions are kept at bay with a built-in hardware firewall. This ensures that any files are kept safe and only accessible by authorised users.

What is NETGEAR Genie?
NETGEAR Genie is a free dashboard application that allows you to monitor, control and fix basic router issues from a portable device such as a smartphone or tablet. View a map of your network to see what devices are connected, and remotely block any unwanted connections. You can also use your portable device as a remote control for your DLNA media devices, and access any media stored on external devices through the router’s USB 2.0 ports.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great device - share a paid internet connection to multiple devices when on the move Never again pay for each device when you go away. Only have wired internet in the hotel - solved. You set it up it once then from then on you just login to it and then you're away. Even works with WiFi you have to login to via a webpage.

can you power this off a powerbank appose to using the mains?

Asked by: Matt
I have used a powerbank to provide power to this unit via the micro usb port and it works a treat. Perfect for placing in between the poor signal from a router and an out of range area.

Normally around 20m however signal range, and wireless coverage per sq. ft. are not guaranteed and may vary due to differences in operating environments of wireless networks, including without limitation building materials and wireless interference.
