D-Link has introduced the Wireless Pocket Router/AP (access point), a portable wireless networking solution for business travellers wanting to access and share hotel internet connections, wirelessly connect Ethernet devices or protect shared information from potential hackers.
The Wireless Pocket Router/AP is smaller than an average PDA and for added mobility, the router can be powered over a USB outlet if power outlets are not available.
"The need to stay connected while on the road is crucial in today’s business environment," said Kevin Wen, president of D-Link Europe. “With its small footprint and three-in-one functionality, the Wireless Pocket Router/AP is a perfect connectivity companion
for the business traveller."
A small switch on the back of the unit allows users to easily select one of the three wireless modes: router/firewall, access point and wireless client modes. While in access point mode, the router can connect multiple wireless devices, such as laptops and PDAs, to a single Internet connection.
The product can also make any Ethernet-equipped device wireless-enabled without installing software or configuring network settings. The router supports strong WPA encryption, as well as the weaker 64/128 WEP encryption, to secure wireless data communications.
