$24 Wall Socket Router Includes WiFi, Ethernet, USB, and a Phone Jack

There are already several small routers or repeater that you can connect to a wall socket, but that’s not what I’m taking about here, as I’ve been informed about a wall socket, or gang box, being the router itself. It supports 802.11 b/g/n WiFi, and features two RJ45 Ethernet ports, an RJ11 phone jack, and a USB port for 3G dongle or charging mobile devices.

The product description also mentions the router supports cloud storage, DLNA and Samba. It also indicates ADSL is supported, and that the RJ45 Ethernet port support Hotel mode/ADSL mode, whatever that means.

DealExtreme sells this product for $23.93 shipped, but I could find some different models on Aliexpress for about $30 here and there.

Thanks to Onebir for the tip.

Hm… Begs for a teardown, doesn’t it? $24 makes it compelling as long as they didn’t cripple it too much to get to that price.

you can buy pricier devices in western countries, but they do come from China too …

2 notes for American readers:
Firstly, this won’t quite match up with an American double box (it’s intended for a European 85mm box).
Secondly, putting low-voltage and high-voltage wiring into the same box violates (American) electrical code (you can do it if you have a divided box, but this isn’t going to work in one), so you’d need to install with the power-over-ethernet option to be legal (on an in-wall install in the US, anyway).

Would be nifty to see the Fine Manual to see the gory details of available (or at least claimed) functionality.

Would have been nice to have 1-2 antenna connector(s) for the wifi.

Is the WAN and Lan Port 100 Mbit or 1Gbit. With only 100 Mbit the Product is useless

I would be interested to know more about the phon jack; do you thinkthat yo can make calls using an old analog phone if you have connected an 3G USB dongle with a SIM-card?
