The wireless Nano router is quite an attractive piece of hardware. It’s a 2.5″ square, slightly thicker than an iPhone at .7″ thick, and is powered by commonly available micro USB. It’s got a pleasing glossy plastic blue and white color scheme, with a blue status indicator LED. This device is clearly intended for road warriors as it’s small, light, and fits nicely in a laptop bag. There is a default wifi network/password combination on the back of the device akin to most products in the personal hotspot family. It’s my policy not to photograph security information as part of reviews, but suffice it to say; any normal user would need nothing more than that to get going.
The device operates in 3 modes:
AP Mode: for enabling wireless on an existing wired network
Router mode: for direct connection to a broadband source
Repeater Mode: for extending your current wireless network via wired, or wireless methods
