Asus launched the world smallest router last week measuring 6.5cm long and weighing 17.5g, the Asus WL-330NUL. It is available since 20th May 2013 for SGD$59.
The Asus WL-330NUL is a 4-in-1 router, it acts like a router, USB Ethernet adapter, Wireless adapter and supports hot spot sharing!
Too bad there is no built-in battery for it and it does not support gigabit connection due to the speed limitations of USB2. It only supports the older 2.4GHz and not the newer 5.GHz.
Just connect an Ethernet cable and instantly create a secure wireless network environment for all your devices. In addition, the WL-330NUL can also manage several network users at once, with different access privileges.
Hot Spot Sharing
The WL-330NUL features an easy to use and versatile hot spot mode. Wherever power and wireless connectivity are available, it allows sharing a single account on multiple devices.
USB Ethernet Adapter
As ultrabooks usually lack an RJ-45 wired LAN port and only support Wi-Fi, the WL-330NUL has been especially designed for business travelers and users of ultrabooks. Simply connect a network cable to your ultrabook via USB port, and the WL-330NUL provides stable and reliable online access anywhere.
The WL-330NUL is also the perfect backup should your integrated wireless hardware experience any issues. To get Wi-Fi access, simply plug it to your notebook via USB. This also makes the WL-330NUL perfect for desktops, which traditionally lack Wi-Fi capabilities and limit you to wired connections.
