This is off-topic and the only connection with CentOS is that the laptop will be running CentOS...

I am looking for a travel router/firewall for a number of reasons:

- Protect against outside attacks when outside the office/home not relying on whatever protection the laptop/tablet/phone offers.

- Allow for fast transfer for data between devices without being limited by the bandwidth of the hotel etc., even without being connected to the internet.

- Allow for multiple devices even when the hotel etc. only allows one device to be registered.

The ideal device should:

- Be small, ideally be able to be charged via a USB port.

- Use open-source software that the user can update.

- Allow the user to log on the device and set up the connection with the hotel etc. which often requires a userid and password to be entered on a browser page.

- Allow using either a RJ-45 wired or wireless connection to the outside net.

- Have at least two RJ-45 ports to connect a laptop avoiding WiFi.

- Allow for VPN tunneling.

If anyone has suggestions, they would be greatly appreciated!
