Recommend me a micro WiFi access point

I'm looking for the smallest wireless access point that I can plug into a network easily and not take up much space.

Would also be useful if it didn't need a power point socket too.

Can you recommend me anything? Or give me a word to google for?

Well I think you can't really find any wifi access point without a actual power socket.

And most routers I seen are not so much different in size.

However it might be useful if you just buy one that stands up straight instead of laying flat.

and to Google for:
Buy wireless access point
Then it’s simply comparing them as in size.

However the smaller they are the less power they often got.
(Try to find one with 3 antenna’s for some proper/ stable wireless network)

something like this?

It's as small as it gets. I used it a while ago. Cheap and small, only problem is that it hangs under heavy load (P2P), due to having smaller RAM than its bigger brothers.
