BTW, for those looking for a portable device, this can be used too, as it is able to be powered by portable battery (with USB ports of course). It is compatible to multiple OS and therefore I think with the pricing and portability, it will be popular.

Singapore (15 May, 2013) — designed to enable convenient and quick internet access for travelers, the USB-based ASUS WL-330NUL integrates full capabilities in the smallest-sized router produced to date.

It operates in multiple modes, including router, Ethernet, Wi-Fi hotspot, and access point. Its flexibility and convenience allow easy internet service sharing across several devices, regardless of whether only wired or wireless connectivity is available.

Account sharing at no extra cost

With its router capabilities, the WL-330NUL allows sharing a single connection on multiple devices without having to pay for additional accounts or apply for new log-in information. 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.

Designed as an Ultrabook™ companion

The WL-330NUL pairs easily with Ultrabooks via USB. As these often lack a wired networking port, the RJ-45 Ethernet port on the WL-330NUL brings customers faster, more stable, and more secure wired connections. All users have to do is pair it with their Ultrabook™ using a USB cable, then connect the WL-330NUL to a wired internet source such as a modem or directly to the wall using an Ethernet cable.

Secure and easy setup

The WL-330NUL supports secure network creation, maintaining confidentiality and ensuring data remains safe even if shared across devices. The product works essentially setup-free, with one-click network management and guest access control. Customers can get online almost instantly while utilizing the friendly web-based interface and bundled software for effortless access and connection sharing.

Multi-OS compatible and several ways to power up  

The WL-330NUL is compatible with multiple Windows versions including Windows 8, as well as Mac OS and iOS. It is therefore accessible to a wide range of devices, delivering its benefits to a broader customer base. It has very minimal energy requirements for full-functionality, and can be connected directly to the wall via the bundled power adapter or receive power from any USB connection. Customers can also pair it with mobile power banks for even greater convenience.
