Here's the situation:  I now have a Vonage phone account, using the recently
introduced Linksys PAP2 adapter.  Works like a charm.  Those of you with
broadband ought to check out www.vonage.com (I don't work for them).  To use
the device you need a router with at least one spare port.

I travel a lot and broadband access is pretty common in hotel rooms now.
I'd like to bring my wireless laptop along with me as well as a small phone
along with the Linksys PAP2  (this will allow me to get and make phone calls
whenever I travel...pretty neat.)

I need a traveling router (small) that has an AP and also has a spare open
ethernet port on it...

Anyone know and recommend such a device?  Remember small is good.
Netgear just released a new traveling router; however no ethernet port.  I
also looked at Apple's AirPort Express (also small)...but no spare ethernet
port either...but it does a built-in USB printserver.

Any recommendations?

What you really need is Wifi / VoiP phone like Zyxel 2000W,
it isn't cheap though !

How about the Wiflyer (www.wiflyer.com)?

That's the only one I've been able to find with this feature set (plus
it has dialup).  They've just started {taking orders for,shipping?}
the WiFlyer, and I'm considering it.  Did they just drop the price?  I
seem to remembering taking it off my list, as it was something like
$250, but (now?) it's only $150.  Probably $50 more than a travel
router and a travel AP, but pretty reasonable...

After leaving my previous travel AP with a client, I've been looking
for a replacement.  Anything else out there (yet) in this market
space?
