How to convert Wired ethernet to wireless (no wireless access point!)

Hi expert,

Have a question re converting wired to wireless connection. I know what a wireless access point is and how it works, but in this situation WAP is not an option, unless it is one with no setup required.

Long story cut short. Basically I am going to travel abroad and will spend a month in a hotel. The hotel supply a "wired" connection in the room so no problem using laptop. However I would like to make that wired connection to a wireless connection so that I can use my phone, iPad etc. I know how WAP works but it is a hotel and I will NOT have any details (IP address etc) to setup.

Do anyone know what kind of technology/adaptor I can acquire in order to convert the wired into wireless connection? I search through the internet most products I found convert wireless into wired instead.

Please do NOT suggestion WAP unless it is one that doesn't require setup.

Many thanks for your suggestion.

There are two or more options.

One is a mobile router like the one below.

TPlink WR-700N

The other option is a software solution like the one below assuming that you will bring a notebook running windows 7 or above.

you can setup any computer as a wifi access point with or without security

if you do so, just share the wired connection with the wireless network and you're done
