Santa Clara, CA, United States, 2011/07/01 - Edimax, a major Taiwanese wireless networking manufacturer, is shipping the BR-6258n Nano Wireless Router in North and South America - EDIMAX.com.
A major high-tech trend is miniaturization. The computing power of a room-sized mainframe can now be shrunk down to a smartphone in the palm of one’s hand. Similarly, Edimax is proud to present the world’s smallest wireless router in the size of a matchbox or just a tiny bit thicker than a remote key fob for your car. The dimensions are 2.3” x 1.7” and 0.7” and it weighs less than 1 ounce. Its small size and light weight enhances its portability and general usefulness, and makes it the perfect traveling router. You will hardly notice it when you pack it along in your laptop case.
It was also a winner of the 2011 Taiwan Excellence Award, and was highly rated in several European PC magazines.
A feature that no other router has is that it can be powered via the laptop’s USB port. So when you travel with your Edimax Nano Router, you don’t have to be concerned about the local electricity and what kind of electrical plug. Of course, depending where you go, you may still need to consider electrical power for your laptop.
A typical usage is when you are at a hotel room where you have a single Internet connection and you wish to share it with your associates i.e. share the Internet with 2 or more PCs. If the connection is a turned-on Ethernet wall socket, you can easily connect from it to the color-coded WAN port of the Edimax Nano Router. Or, if the hotel provides a single wireless sign-on, then you may use the router’s wireless “Universal Repeater” mode and have the initial user log onto the sign-on page. Once you have properly configured the router, it is a full fledge wireless router with a complete set of advanced functions.
Because it is so small and unobtrusive, it can be used as a network adapter for IP-TV, Xbox, PS3 and other game consoles or media players that have a RJ45 socket. It is a universal wireless device, and you eliminate the concern for acquiring the right USB wireless adapter for compatibility.
To save electrical power and the environment, the Edimax Nano Adapter is extremely low powered, and most likely, the lowest powered router in the world. It has smart IQ to lower the power between packet transmissions, receptions, and idle. After all, it is designed to be powered by a 2.5 watt USB port; hence, its power consumption is definitely less than 2.5 watt.
“We provide real-world features that are actually being used and have concrete benefits,” said Richard Hung, the General Manager of Edimax Computer. “When you are traveling especially as a group, it is very easy to take along an Edimax Nano Router. The Edimax BR-6258N is a smart choice regardless of price. There are simply no others!”
