Helps customers stay connected wherever they go with Ethernet, Wi-Fi and access point modes plus multi-OS support, all in a pocket-sized USB device
Manila, Philippines (25 January, 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 was created specifically for customers who travel frequently, especially those who use Ultrabooks, smartphones, and tablets to get online. The WL-330NUL provides quick secure network setup and connection sharing with other users. It works with multiple operating systems, including Windows 8, Mac OS, and iOS.
Most compact all-in-one router
The WL-330NUL has been engineered to offer fully-fledged router functionality in a miniaturized form factor. 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. The WL-330NUL measures 6.5cm in length and weighs 17.5g, making it as easy to carry and handle as a USB stick.
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.
