Default Revo Pico Wi-Fi

This looks like a robust and easy-to-use solution for casual DI listeners.

It will work in some places, but not in others (like my work). At my work guests can connect wirelessly to the net, but they have to go through a login screen where they identify themselves as guests. This gaget will not pass through this setup.

A refurbished laptop (~300-350 dollars) is better option. If you want to keep it really portable, then PDA with Wi-Fi will do everything that this thing does and much more.

Conclusion.
It is waste of money.

It's a gadget, those are by definition a waste of money

Oh yeah. I forgot about that. Its pretty useless then.

Unless it somehow uses a different "protocol" or whatever to go through the network.

There is no other protocol. This gadget will be Ok for some people, but most people will find it useless.
