We've seen enough travel routers, and they all have pretty much the same features: plug one into the Ethernet in your hotel room, and your room is a hot spot. SMC's $130 SMCWTVG does that too, but adds another feature that makes it worth looking at: it's got an phone jack that turns any analog phone into a VoIP handset. Of course, you could accomplish much the same thing by plugging a headset into your PC once it's connected to the network, but this gives you one less thing to pack -- assuming, of course, that your hotel or other destination has analog phones. Otherwise, be prepared to pack your own or just go ahead and use a headset.
