"Travel" router for university

Hi all,

Long time no post...
Daughter is off to Uni soon and they have said "bring an ethernet
cable".
Which is fine, but her slimline laptop doesn't have an ethernet port.
Also her new printer is USB, or wireless.

I think I/she has two options,
1 - personal / travel router to provide wifi in her room for her laptop
&
printer (internet via the Uni-recommended ethernet cable)
2 - USB adaptor for ethernet, printer also via USB, although I/she would
like to avoid long trailing cables (
https://www.amazon.co.uk/TeckNet-Gigabit-Ethernet-Network-Adapter/dp/B00JTSYBUY
)

I thought Netgear did a small travel router with built-in power bank,
something like this one:
https://www.tp-link.com/uk/products/details/cat-5090_TL-WR902AC.html
although the linked item does not have the powerbank...
Did I dream the netgear one?
Anyone used the TP-LINK one?

Mark, is the Asus WL-330N3G *specifically* 3g or will it work with an
appropriate 4g USB modem?

Many thanks,
Tim.
