Edimax BR-6268 NL
Looks, as the ancient adage goes, can be incredibly deceptive. And this was never truer as in the case of this diminutive device. To the naked eye, the Edimax BR-6268 NL appears to be just another regular Ethernet adapter for those skinny Wifi-only ultrabooks that have been sprouting out of the woodwork these past few months. Yet, what lies beneath actually serves as a portable Wifi 150Mbit/s 802.11n hotspot. This allows you to share a wired Internet connection with as many as six wireless devices. For juice, the Edimax BR-6268 NL sucks on your laptop’s USB port. Or, it can also be powered by an add-on portable battery option. What’s also neat is the way its short, in-built USB lead can be tucked very conveniently into the base when not in deployment.
