The ASUS WL-330N3G offers all the benefits of a standard wireless router, with multi-role functionality and an extremely user-friendly setup. All of these features fit in a tiny device that is easy to carry, making the WL-330N3G ideal for travelers and business people who wish to extend their internet access when on the road.
The first thing to note about the WL-330N3G is its compact size — its footprint is smaller than a business card. While this makes it very easy to carry and literally pocket sized, it does not come at the expense of functionality. This is a full wireless router designed for those on the move, especially students, commuters and mobile professionals.
Delivering spectacular utility and value, the WL-330N3G works as six different devices rolled into one.
First and foremost, it is a mobile wireless router, connecting devices such as notebooks and smartphones to one broadband internet service. Second, it can be used as a universal repeater in conjunction with other routers to extend the range of an existing connection. Third, the WL-330N3G also functions as an access point when combined with a broadband modem, enabling connectivity for a host of devices.
The WL-330N3G can also be deployed as an Ethernet adapter for Ethernet-capable devices like game consoles, printers and cable set-top boxes.
Finally, the WL-330N3G has both hotspot and 3G sharing modes built in. As a hotspot, it can serve as a mobile Wi-Fi connection for several PCs, while in 3G sharing mode, it provides internet connectivity for several devices through the 3G network. This mode works in conjunction with a 3G USB adapter.
The WL-330N3G with up to 150Mbps data rate is easy to configure. The fast process is extremely simple thanks to ASUS Plug-n-Surf and network detection. Plus, the numerous ways this coverage can be extended to a host of different devices, all in a very portable manner, makes the WL-330N3G a very powerful connectivity enabler.
With its streamlined design, the only buttons and connections on the WL-330N3G are the power port, USB port, reset button, and a 10/100 Ethernet connection for hooking up with modems, other routers and various Ethernet-enabled devices.
For those looking to replace a fixed line, or to simply take their broadband connection with them when traveling or commuting, the WL-330N3G offers a perfect balance of value and performance.
