Configuration of the 330g is essentially the same as that for the 330, i.e. either via Windows-based utility or built-in browser-based admin. ASUS has improved the Windows utility over that supplied with the 330 and now you can change the IP address as well as access Channel, SSID and Encryption settings.

192.168.1.1 is still the default address for the web interface. Figure 4 shows what the interface looks like, which has been cleaned up somewhat from the 330's and is more readable.

The good news is that you now get support for WPA-PSK (TKIP only), which was missing on the 330. The bad news is that the 330g drops WDS bridging and repeating features. You also still get only a list of associated station MAC address as the only monitoring feature (accessed by clicking on a not-so-obvious link behind the "Associated Stations" text next to the SSID value box).

Like the 330's Basic Rate Set control, the 330g's Transmit Rate setting didn't appear to really control the Transmit rate or "advertised" rates that the 330g sends out. When enabled, the Access Control feature denies access to all clients except for the ones you enter into its MAC address list. But it doesn't show a pick list of associated clients or allow Import / Export of a pre-made list.

Client mode worked much the same as it did on the WL330. Again, check that review if you want details.
