This review is from: ASUS WL-330NUL All-in-One Wireless-N Pocket Router IEEE 802.3/3u, IEEE 802.11b/g/n
Pros: Small and ultra-portable (barely larger than a finger). Allows multiple devices to share a single wired or wireless signal. Easy to use. The ability to share a WiFi signal is the most impressive and useful feature to me. There are times I need to pay for a wireless connection and this device is really handy. This particular feature also allow me to use Chromcast (another great, tiny travel companion) in a hotel rooms that only has WiFi. Chromcast needs to be on the same wireless LAN as your phone to work and hotel WiFi can easily screw that up.
Cons: No hardware reset button. The robustness of the Windows application is questionable. Limited management features.
Other Thoughts: I've been using this almost on a daily basis. Even when I'm not traveling I use it in office to bypass the corporate firewall (it's a long story). At one point I thought I bricked the device. I could not connect to it and the Windows utility could not detect it nor communicate with it. There's no hardware reset button and there's nothing I could do. Contacted Asus and tech support got back to me within 24 hours suggesting that I RMA the unit. For whatever reason it started working again and I was happy.
The management feature is minimal. For a travel router this is not that much of problem. The first time I use it to connect to a 192.168.1.x WiFi network it was smart enough to change it's own subnet to 192.168.2.x. That's pretty impressive. There was no interface to specify settings like this though. I hope the router is smart enough to handle other situations and conflicts.
One more thing. I bought this on Neweggs. The spec implies that it come with a power supply but it really doesn't. Neweggs gave me a $5 refund for it.

Anyhow I love this tiny device. You can't go wrong with it. In fact I'll probably buy another one.
