Here’s an innovative wall-pluggable wireless Broadband and multi-function router from Digisol for homes and small offices. It’s very different from the traditional WiFi routers that are big, bulky, have external power adapters and stick out like a sore
thumb on walls or on a table. This one looks like a power adapter itself, but with all the circuitry built-in. Simply plug it directly into any wall outlet and start using it. There are no separate cables jutting out to spoil the look and feel of your
home or office.

The router has a WAN port to connect your broadband Internet connection, two USB ports, out of which can be used to charge your smartphone or tab and the other for data sharing. To this, you can either connect your 3G dongle for
Internet sharing, or plug in a flash drive or hard drive with multimedia content and start accessing it over WiFi. A multicolored LED indicates its various states, e.g. green indicates it’s connected to the Internet. The router supports IEEE
802.11b/g/n standards, meaning any WiFi device can connect to it.

Setting up and configuring the router is pretty easy over its neat and uncluttered web-admin console. We tested its Internet connectivity by first connecting a 3G dongle to it and then using the 3G dongle directly with a laptop. We used to check its ping response, upload, and download speeds. A laptop with 802.11n based wireless adapter was used.

The router connected to the Internet without any hassle over the 3G dongle. From the WiFi client, the average ping response was 111 ms, download speed of 2.17 Mbps & upload speed of 1.05 Mbps. Interestingly, the speeds with the dongle directly connected to the laptop were lesser at 1.5 Mbps download, and 0.67 Mbps upload. This actually implies that the router works very efficiently.
