    TRENDnet, a best-in-class wired and wireless networking hardware brand, today announces the availability of the world's smallest 150Mbps Micro Wireless N USB Adapter, model TEW-648UBM. The ultra compact form factor measures a remarkable 0.59 x 0.74 x 0.28 inches (1.5 x 1.9 x 0.7 cm).

    When plugged into a USB port, the adapter extends a scant 0.3 inches (0.8 cm) from the edge of the computer. The adapter is so small that users can stow a laptop with the adapter plugged in, without worrying about damaging the laptop or the adapter.

    This adapter is also the only product in its class that features a convenient WPS button. One-touch Wi-Fi Protected Setup, or WPS technology, eliminates the hassle of entering complicated codes in order to connect to a wireless network. Simply press the WPS button on a compatible router (most TRENDnet routers feature a WPS button), then press the WPS button on TRENDnet's 150Mbps Micro Wireless N USB Adapter, confirm that you want to connect, and you're connected.

    "The TEW-648UBM eliminates size constraints when using wireless adapters. On-the-go users no longer have to worry about leaving their adapter plugged into their laptop." stated Sonny Su, Technology Director for TRENDnet. "As well, the addition of a WPS button makes it really easy to connect to WPS enabled routers and access points."

    The 150Mbps Micro Wireless N USB Adapter, model TEW-648UBM, has an MSRP of U.S. $39.99.

    This product is currently shipping to TRENDnet's online, retail, DMR, and distribution partners.

    That is almost too small! Such a cool matter that a USB network adapter has gotten this small.

    i have one only a small amount large.


    the problem with that adaptor is no aerial - its range will be extremely short.

    looks like there's a cap covering an antenna port on the end, perhaps someone can attach an external antenna?

    Hmm, might be nice to get for the shop so we could hook anybody up to wireless in a pinch. It really depends on how the drivers are.
