There acutally useful for a lot of things when you need connectivity on the go. they can be used to connect to external networks using either Ethernet, Wifi or Mobile with a usb dongle and break out that connection to all the devices behind it or even as just a normal access point on a network. I found mine useful when my internet went out and my brother which has no WiFi on his computer used it to connect to his Android Phone AP and to his computer with Ethernet as windows 10 wouldn’t allow a direct connection to his phone.


so you can join it to wifi and provide a connection to an Ethernet only device then?
