    I like the airport express if you consider $100 (us) cheep.

    Can't beat ease of use though!

    The AirPort express is a pretty nice option, given its ability to remotely hook up speakers and a printer, and you can find it on Apple's refurb site or used here, on MacRumors Marketplace.

    How portable do you need it to be? Most routers these days are pretty small as is.

    Portable enough to be discreet and put into a laptop bag

    The Airport Express is the best option since there isn't an additional AC adapter to carry along.

    How often do you plan to use it, and why do you need it?

    Would becoming a WiFi subscriber be a more viable option?

    I travel a lot and take along a Linksys WTR54GS Wireless-G Travel Router. It has an internal power supply and is very small. About $100, and it lets you turn a wired line in a hotel room into a wireless network. Why does that matter? So you don't have to sit in the horrible desk chair most hotel rooms offer tethered to a 2 foot ethernet line. It also comes in handy when you are in a conference room with more meeting participants than wired ethernet ports.
