    @Leeshor, good to find you here!!

    I was using wifi at a home I was living at and it was secure but now staying in hotels with no security on the wifi-big surprise!

    What would you suggest as a portable wifi gadget that is secure? Can't tether my phone (Verizon nailed me for trying). I prefer something portable since I will never have a permanenet home so will need something I can pay for monthly/yearly and use wherever I happen to be living.

    Mifi sounds good but I don't understand how it works and do NOT trust a sales person from a carrier without doing research first.

    Any feedback would be SUPER!!

    FYI, considering an iphone 5 but I'm pretty sure tethering is not an option

    Many Thanks!!!!

    2 routers are listed in the original post, one is an ASUS the other TP-Link, (there are plenty of other models that will work), that can work as a repeater or WiFi to Ethernet, both would be secure as various security methods are a part of the router firmware.

    The MiFi hotspot is safe. It really is more or less the same as a 3G dongle without the USB. The hotspot communicates over the cellular network and you communicate with it over your WiFi rather than having to plug it in.

    As someone who has to support Android consumer electronics I cannot endorse the selection of a MiFi device enough. The ease of use plus the comparable $$ output makes the MiFi device a no-brainer where they are offered and they are fairly secure; certainly for my AT&T Elevate security isn't an issue. I understand people may have to go with a USB modem for XYZ reasons, but I recommend a MiFi/Hotspot device if that is an option.

    Welcome to the forum

    There may also be an issue with finding a 3G modem that will work, but I'm moving your post to the Lenovo section where more people with your tablet can see it.
