Pocket Router by AsusThe WL-330NUL is a “pocket router” that offers a Wi-Fi hot spot or wired connection. Powered by a computer’s USB port or optional A/C adapter the unit is smaller than most flash drives and weighs less than an ounce.

The ASUS WL-330NUL Pocket Router is the world’s smallest fully featured wireless router designed to make getting online via Wi-Fi as easy as possible when away from a home or office network. Barely larger than a USB flash drive and weighing just 25g, the WL-330NUL Pocket Router features a single Ethernet port for connection to a wired network and built-in 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi for extending a wireless network.

Powered from a notebook USB port or by plugging directly into a mains socket, the WL-330NUL Pocket Router creates its own secure wireless hotspot for easy sharing of a wired or wireless connection with multiple wireless devices. The WL-330NUL Pocket Router can also be used as a USB Ethernet adapter for notebooks that lack a built-in Ethernet port, making it the perfect travelling companion for ultra-slim Ultrabooks™.
