Keewifi router replaces passwords with a tap

Keewifi is a router that aims to be easier to use than an ordinary router, as well as being safer by completely eliminating the use of passwords.

Both are targeted at demanding users, though the EA9200 is the higher-end of the two, bringing with it features like dual-band operation and 6 antennas.

US Cellular has outed a new 4G home router, offering LTE connectivity for those who perhaps aren't served by traditional DSL or cable providers, or who don't want to be fixed to one location. The 4G LTE Router needs to be plugged in to an AC supply - it's not a mobile hotspot with a battery for truly portable use - but can at least be packed up in your bag and moved between home or office.
