The Router

The WN-300R is as small as wireless routers come, but it does have a certain unique style to it. Unlike many other modern routers, the WN-300R uses lighted icons to indicate status. There are no labels for the lights; when they are lit you can plainly tell what they indicate.

One down side to this is the lack of individual lights for the LAN ports. You cannot tell how many ports are operational. Air Live also put the reset and the wireless protected setup buttons on the front.

The back has the usual suspects; one WAN port, four LAN ports and two antenna connections. Unfortunately, the LAN ports are only 10/100; I am not sure why this is still happening at a time when most PCs (and Macs) are shipping with 1Gigabit Ethernet connections.

Also, the issue of two antennas is odd; most N spec routers have three antennas for better reception and speed. Air Live does at least use 2T2R MIMO antennas, however.
