  1. Five years ago I would not have dreamed I would have to travel so much as I have nowadays. With the present quarantine due to Corona virus, I’m taking a very necessary break, but traveling is my new life style. A WiFi router to always be connected with VPN to protect my data is what I need. I think AR300 M Mini is the one that suits me most.

    Thanks for this review.

  2. Yes you are so right about all of this.  This stuff, talking about the routers, will be the way of the future.  Mobile computer work will be prized for the next couple of generations who ever masters it.  I know a couple people who have this feature and it is so helpful to have on hand.  Literally lol.  But just like you mentioned.  The VPN and security has to be top priority.  I would not jump the gun on something less expensive if it does not have these features.  Thank you for the pros and cons of each router.  Very helpful.

  4. Hi,

    I have used VPN service in past, when I was travelling in China. VPN connection was needed to access services like Facebook and Google, which are banned in China.

    In the future, when travelling is possible again, I’m interested in trying a Wi-fi router with VPN. I think iNet GL – USB150 Microuter is the most appealing device to me. I’m a bit obsessed with small technology, and that one looks very handy and compact to me.

    • Hi, Kirsti, Thank you for taking the time to visit and for your comment. I am glad you found the post both helpful and informative. I have to agree with you the GL-USB150 is one of the smallest VPN Routers available, but still offers great protection, great choice. Very reasonably priced
