Tim Leffel from Practical Travel Gear recently reviewed the SharePort Go (DIR-506L) and greatly enjoyed the device’s triple-duty capabilities as a wireless hotspot, a repeater and a multimedia sharing device (with the additional perk of being able to charge your mobile devices!)
Supporting its advertised ease of use, Tim was able to quickly set up the device and easily connect to the D-Link wireless network created from the hotel’s wired connection, running multiple devices off it “at the same time with no issues”. Not only was the SharePort Go a breeze to set up but it also saved Tim the trouble and additional cost of requesting another internet connection (as the one provided by the hotel was only good for up to three connected devices) by creating a wireless network that allowed all of his family’s devices to connect.
D-Link’s SharePort Go (DIR-506L) is the ultimate traveler’s companion and boasts so many features it will make your head spin! The DIR-506L can be a travel router or access point, it can create a wireless network out of any existing wired one and it can repeat a wireless signal to extend the range of a network. But wait, there’s more! The SharePort Go can also give you additional on-the-go wireless storage by plugging in a USB drive to instantly access and share media files among all connected devices. More you say? You got it! The DIR-506L is the epitome of mobile with its own rechargeable battery that delivers up to 4 hours of constant use and can also be used to charge your wireless devices, meaning less cables and power adapters to pack (and later on forget).
