PRODUCT PICTORIAL AND WALKTHROUGH
With dimensions of just 1.5 x 3.5 ix 0.5 inches, the WL-330N3G is tiny enough to carry around in your pocket. Blue LEDs light up the top of the unit with the exception of the 3G LED - it's a purple/pink color. A WPS button is here too, and also take note of the USB port at the bottom for a 3G USB modem.
On the end of the unit we have a micro-USB port for your choice of a power adapter. The RJ-45 port rounds out this area.
Flipping the router over, we have a reset button and a sticker that provides info such as the MAC address and login information for the web interface. Unfortunately the login credentials on the sticker are incorrect – typing in “admin” for both the user name and password will let you in.
PRODUCT INSTALLATION AND TESTING
The first order of business is to install the router utilities. This includes a Device Discovery utility that finds the router on the network so you can begin configuration.
The Device Discovery utility found the router instantly, and clicking the “configure” button brings up the interface where all the settings can be tweaked. Of course, you can also bypass software installation and simply type 192.168.1.1 in a browser window.
