I'm finding ad-hoc wireless, which I use for various syncing tasks, increasingly unreliable between my MacBook Pro and iOS devices. I'm also currently on 10.9.5 (though upgrading to Sierra shortly) so I'm stuck to using 128-bit WEP for ad-hoc wireless connections! So, I'm considering purchasing a portable wireless router. The two devices I'm considering are the TP-LINK TL-WR710N and TP-LINK TL-WR810N (links are to Amazon UK). The question I have is very basic, but I'd rather sound a fool and make the right purchasing decision than not ask and make the wrong one. So: in people's experience, would either device suffice to permit two wireless devices to share files between each other, despite the absence of a wired internet connection to the router? Both devices offer "router mode", which is what I believe I require. However, the info I can find suggests such a mode and device is designed to allow wireless devices to gain access to a wired network, with no mention of access between wireless devices—hence my doubt. Can anyone put my mind at rest here? Thanks!
