I am considering Apple TV for a trips, but usually the hotels' wifis' connections are separated. I came up with using my Vodafone branded Huawei R201 mobile wifi router for that purpose, but I am not sure if that hardware is powerful enough for sending Full HD video from my iPad/iPod/Mac to Apple TV.

Is there some parameter on wifi routers (I am opened to buy another one), which say "Yes, it WILL work"?

wouldn't it be much simpler (and cheaper) to buy a HDMI dock adapter? – Jason Nov 19 '12 at 1:21
Difference is not much noticable. I have iPad 3.gen and iPod touch 4.gen -- 30 pins. I am considering new iPhone -- Lightning. With hdmi cable it's almost same expenses and with Apple TV i don't have to connect the iOS devices for some usage. – Mailo Nov 19 '12 at 9:46
And now i realized it would require also hdmi kit for my Mac, so the "not Apple TV" is even more expensive – Mailo Nov 19 '12 at 12:08
