A Closer Look
In the box you’ll find the router, power adapter, USB power adapter (2 USB to micro USB), ethernet cable (Cat 5e), and a carrying case. I really like the USB power adapter. Since there may not always be enough power outlets in a hotel room, you can just steal power from your computer’s USB ports. If you tie up all of your USB ports, this probably isn’t a viable option for you, however, I like the fact that ASUS has included it as an option.
ASUS has really made the WL-330N3G easy to carry around. The length of the WL-330N3G is about equal to my index finger, and its width is smaller than my pinky. You could easily carry the WL-330N3G in your pocket, if you wished to do so. The device itself is all white with dark gray writing and blue LEDs (with the exception of the 3G LED, it’s pink). There is a WPS button on top. The right side of the WL-330N3G has the micro-USB plug for power, and an RJ-45 ethernet port. The front has the sole USB port for a 3G USB modem. The bottom of the WL-330N3G has the restore button, and a sticker with product information. There is an issue with the sticker. It says the login and password for the router are both “ASUS”, however, “ASUS” will not work. The actual login and password is “admin”.
One thing I’d like to see on the WL-330N3G are rubber feet on the bottom or a little bit more weight to the device. The WL-330N3G has a tendency to slide off of the table if you have an ethernet cable plugged in.
