Asus Announces World's Smallest USB Router


Asus has announced the world's smallest all-in-one router in the form of the WL-330NUL. The WL-330NUL is a USB-powered device able to function as a traditional router, hotspot or access point. It's also capable of sharing wired or wireless internet connections to a variety of devices over secure networks.

Measuring in at 6.5 x 2 x 1.5cm and weighing just 25g, Asus has claimed the WL-330NUL is the world's smallest router. It'll work with Windows 8, Mac OS and iOS, among other operating systems.

While Expansys doesn't list a price, it's believed to be $39.99, with a release date scheduled for February 14. The router itself sports a single ethernet port and support for both USB 3.0 and 2.0. It's also compatible with 802.11 b/g/n 2.4 GHz WiFi.

"For customers who travel often and require connectivity on notebooks, tablets, smartphones, and even desktops at once, easy sharing adds up to major savings plus provides good quality connections that do not deteriorate when extra devices are added to networks," Asus said.

    Sounds more like a weird mobile hotspot. I guess technically it's a router... But if you bought this from newegg as a router without further info, you'd probably be left scratching your head.
