ASUS has released the world's smallest router, designed to keep customers connected wherever they go in a pocket-sized USB device.

The computer hardware company says the product enables convenient and quick internet access for travelers, with the USB-based ASUS WL-330NUL integrating 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.

ASUS says the product provides quick secure network setup and connection sharing with other users, working with multiple operating systems, including Windows 8, Mac OS, and iOS.

All-in-one router

Engineered to offer router functionality in a miniaturised form factor, the USB operates in multiple modes, including router, Ethernet, Wi-Fi hotspot, and access point.

Its flexibility and convenience allow easy internet service according to ASUS, who says sharing across several devices is possible, regardless of whether only wired or wireless connectivity is available.

The WL-330NUL measures 6.5cm in length and weighs 17.5g.
