1. Difficult to setup in the adapter mode (to make a wired device wireless). The default IP of this device is unlikely to work with your router, thus need to go into the advanced settings, but there is no doc for the advanced mode. Just a mess. 2. Cannot do port forwarding in the adapter mode. At least I could not get it to work. Stay away from this if you need port forwarding. 3. Other than that, works like a charm. Very good signal, does what it supposed to do. I tried WDTV and Tivo hooked up to this in the adapter mode - handles HD movies in g mode just fine. (Should upgrade to n anyway) Overall - I am very satisfied with this thing (I am buying a second one), but you need to know what you're doing. If you know how to setup your router you should be fine. It took me 1hour to set it up b/c I tried port forwarding.

Very clever repeater

by BR on 12/6/2011

As the previous reviewer said, you'll need to do some undocumented advanced settings work to adapt this for your needs. I liked the idea of a wireless repeater for use when a good signal can only be found in a corner or at a window in your hotel room. Once set up, all your wifi devices in the room will work off this one cigarette box sized gadget. Or put it on the dashboard of your car parked outside. For setup, even ASUS tech support (very friendly) couldn't describe the difference between Hot Spot and Repeater mode. Seemed to be the same, except I could only get the Repeater mode to work and then you have to know to go into Adanced settings to turn on the wifi signal or it won't work. Range is a bit limited. Helps if you are a semi-geek. Read More

Product Overview

Isn´t it so frustrating to find out that the last Internet connection or LAN point has been taken when you just have to access the Internet?

Well, fret no more, as ASUS has released the new WL-330gE Wireless Access Point. This nifty little gadget is able to combine 4 wireless functions, namely Access Point, Ethernet Adapter, Gateway and Universal Repeater, into 1 - providing you with connectivity wherever you are.

The ASUS WL-330gE is compact and portable - weighing in at only 2.2 oz and being only 85 mm(L)* 60 mm(W)* 17 mm(H) in size. This petite size makes it easy to carry and implement under any situation and truly makes the ASUS WL-330gE shine. With such portability, it is able to provide wireless access to the Internet easily and without hassle.

To utilize the WL-330gE under AP or Gateway mode, users just have to simply connect it to the Ethernet port on the modem or a LAN connection, and it is ready to go. This is crucial when a meeting room has only one Ethernet connection and there is a need for multiple connections to the Internet. What´s more, the WL-330gE can provide superior flexibility when building a wireless network by supporting NAT and DHCP servers to enable Internet sharing. This is especially useful when you are in an outside hotspot. With the WL-330gE´s "hotspot mode" under the Gateway mode, not only can your laptop access the Internet, your (or your friend´s) other WiFi devices like PDAs, PSPs or WiFi phones can access it as well with no extra cost.

With an easy-to-use setup user interface, you will just require a few clicks to finish setting up for easy wireless Internet access. You only need to find the WL-330gE using "Device Discovery", then click on "Configure" and choose the mode you require, and the WL-330gE is ready to go. Featuring a driver-free Plug´ n´ Play function, Just plug your configured WL-330gE to your modem/router or the Ethernet-capable device, then your WL-330gE is ready to go! Wireless Internet access has never been easier.

Easy to carry and easy to implement under any circumstance:

  • In the meeting room: Only one Ethernet cable in the meeting room? Use WL-330gE to share the internet access wirelessly
  • In the hotel room: With WL-330gE´s 130ft(40m) indoor range, you can work with your notebook wherever you feel most confortable.
  • In the hotspot: With WL-330gE´s "hotspot mode" under gateway mode, not only your laptop can get on the internet but your (or your friend´s) other WiFi devices (PDA, PSP, or WiFi phone) can access the Internet without extra cost.
  • In the office: Under WL-330gE´s Ethernet adapter mode, you can convert all the Ethernet-capable devices (printer, desktop,..) into wireless.
