What is a Travel Router and How to use?

A Travel Wi-Fi router is a type of Internet router that helps you connect your devices to the network. A Travel router is wireless and usually uses the Internet from a SIM card, Local Area Network (LAN) connection, or public Wi-Fi.

A Travel Wi-Fi router establishes a secure and private Internet connection. It lets multiple devices like phones, laptops, tablets, and more to share a single Internet connection.
