Trendnet unveils world’s smallest 300Mbps travel router

Each year when I travel to CES in Las Vegas I end up wishing that I had a router with me to share an Internet connection with coworkers and shed the wire in the room. The problem is that most routers are too big to carry easily with you on an airline if you pack light as I do.

TrendNet has announced what it claims to be the world’s smallest travel router called the TEW-654TR. The Lilliputian router measures 2.5 x 3.25 x 0.75 inches making it small enough to fit in your pocket. The device still offers full controls with a reset button, power port, WAN port, and an LED display for status.

The device can also be run off the USB port of a notebook computer for on the go use without needing an AC outlet. Speeds supported by the router are up to 300Mbps and encryption is supported. Other features include support for Access Point and AP Client modes. The router will sell for about $75 when it hits store shelves.
