I keep an old school netgear Wireless Router in my backpack. It's surprising how many places around here (libraries, hotels) provide an ethernet jack, but no wireless. In those cases I just whip out my wireless router, hook it up, and my laptop and other internet devices are all online in a jiffy.

That definitely fits the unexpected requirement haha. Good idea as well if you travel a lot.
