"2012/12/17 G", "48SAB402.SCE", and addl. PCB manuf. text (date code

of 1251, Dec. 2012) is silkscreened on the board in the FCC photos.

A MAC label affixed to the Ethernet ports indicates usage

of a 00:25:9C OUI, which seems unlikely.

This device has a single USB 3.0 port and a single USB 2.0 port.

Configuration with Belkin-Linksys's utility may confer a

SSID pattern typical of the Cisco Connect software.

Wi-Fi Certified (alt.) (as of 07/03/2013)
