Wifi Access Point
When I work away I find myself lacking network sockets in a school to plugin my laptop, so what I am looking for is a Wifi Access point which I can plug into that network outlet, and then connect my laptop, phone etc to to get access to the network.
Does anyone know of a pocket size wifi access point?
I have had a bit of a google but not turned up much...

How about this: D-Link Wireless N Pocket Router & Access Point 3.5" x 2.5" x 0.8" will run as a router or AP, seen them for around £45

I'm just being nosy - you say you work away from home in schools - are you a salesman of some type. Even I with my BYOD mentality would be failry miffed to find someone plugging in a wi-fi ap into one of my networks!
so what I am looking for is a Wifi Access point which I can plug into that network outlet, and then connect my laptop, phone etc to to get access to the network.
And why do you need your phone connecting thru a school - its much more restrictive service than a 2/3G network - only people working for a school would have a need to access local resources via wifi.
