Road warriors take note. The mySpot from Kanex looks to be a lifesaver by turning a wired Ethernet connection into a Wi-Fi access point. We’ve all been there during a trip. While a hotel might have a Wi-Fi connection, so many people are on the network that the signal is spotty and slow at best. But if you’ve got a wired Ethernet port in your room, the USB-powered mySpot will create your own Wireless-G network for up to 16 devices. Even though it weighs in at just a little more than an ounce, mySpot doesn’t skimp on security, offering up to 152-bit WEP protection. AppAdvice’s Dom Esposito swung by Kanex’s booth during Macworld/iWorld 2013 in San Francisco to find out a little more about the pocket-sized device. Click here if you can’t see the video. You can snag the mySpot for $49 directly from Kanex. While I don’t travel all that frequently, I’m seriously considering adding the mySpot to my gadget bag.
