MiFi: Your Personal Wireless Hotspot
Are you still trying to figure out the closest Wi-Fi hotspot for Internet access on your business trip? Maybe MiFi, a personal on-the-go Wi-Fi device that supports multiple connections for you and your teammates, is a better option.
MiFi is a tiny, battery powered Mobile Broadband modem that allows you to turn your wireless carrier’s 3G signals into a small wireless network. The network is password-protected and allows mutil-user access, for up to 5 Wi-Fi enabled devices. It offers a great way not only as your personal wireless hotspot, but also for small groups working together within 30-foot range on their laptops, netbooks, or PDAs.
