I noticed that you have Mobile Beacons available. I am in settings in large hotel meetings and need internet access for my laptop. Hotels are very expensive and so I am looking for a better way to access the internet with my laptop.
Will a Mobile Beacon work for this purpose, or is it only for cell phones? Perhaps an Ethernet Adapter would work? Can someone recommend a way to do this?

Here's more info about these mobile hotspots. You should be able to connect any device that can use wifi to it -- as long as the hotspot itself can get a connection.
TechSoup's price looks attractive, but if this is just for your own use I would also contact your cell phone company to see what it would cost to use your own cell phone as a hotspot. It may be included in your plan. For instance, here's what Verizon offers.
Also, if you use an Android phone you can try using Foxfi to turn it into a hotspot. They have a limited, free version you can test. If it works, it's an inexpensive, one-time purchase. But it doesn't work with all Android phones, so test it first.
