D-Link is shipping what it says is world’s first portable 11AC router, the Wi-Fi AC750 Portable Router and Charger (DIR-510L). This latest addition to the D-Link family of connectivity solutions allows mobile users to create a Wi-Fi hotspot from an existing Internet connection, whether that be 3G/4G, Wi-Fi or Ethernet, while on-the-go.
The Portable Wi-Fi Router also features a 4,000mAh rechargeable battery that can charge mobile devices. Additionally, with the free mydlink SharePort mobile app, users can upload, download and stream multimedia and documents to a storage drive attached to one of the Portable Router’s two USB ports from anywhere in the world.
Leveraging dual band technology to bypass radio congestion and interference, the DIR-510L can deliver a total of 750Mbps using the combined throughput of its 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands, according to Ken Loyd, director of consumer product marketing, D-Link Systems. In addition, each band can operate as a separate Wi-Fi network, providing the ability to customize a network according to connectivity needs and even configure a guest zone to provide Internet access to visitors without providing access to the rest of the network. The DIR-510L provides instant sharing of any Internet connection with the added security of a firewall while connected to shared public connection, he adds.
The Wi-Fi AC750 Portable Router and Charger (DIR-510L) is now available at Amazon.com, Frys.com, and throughout D-Link’s vast network of retail and e-tail outlets for US$99.99 EDLP. Go to www.dlink.com/DIR-510L for more info.
