The DIR-505 All-in-one Mobile Companion is a portable plug-in router that lets you share your Internet connection and your files all from a compact device that fits in your pocket. Tiny yet versatile, it gives you all the functionality of a router, access point, wireless repeater, and network storage drive in a device that fits in the palm of your hand.
Multiple Modes for All Your Needs
The All-in-one Mobile Companion features multiple wireless modes, allowing it to adapt to any situation. Router Mode shares your broadband Internet connection wirelessly; just connect it to your cable or DSL modem to provide high-speed Internet access for an entire home or office. AP Mode lets you create a private wireless network instantly, making it perfect for sharing files during business meetings. Repeater Mode extends an existing wireless network, so you can place them anywhere in your home to extend the range of your existing wireless network. Wi-Fi Hot Spot mode lets you share an Internet connection coming from a wireless hotspot. This lets you share a wireless connection at a hotel or café with all your devices. Additionally, Repeater Mode and Wi-Fi Hot Spot Mode let you connect any device with an Ethernet port, enabling it to connect to your network wirelessly. Connect an Xbox 360® or smart TV to a DIR-505 to give them the ability to connect to your router wirelessly while extending your home's wireless coverage at the same time.
Share and Stream Files with Ease
Connect a USB storage device to your All-in-one Mobile Companion to create a shared storage space, making it easy to share files between computers and devices connected to your network. Plug in a USB hard drive to stream your library of videos and music to your laptop, or use a USB flash drive to share presentation files with other team members. An easy to use web interface lets you access, upload, and play files stored on your USB drive, and the SharePortTM Mobile app for mobile devices allows you to back up photos and videos stored your device. You can even customize your shared storage space by creating separate accounts to control access to the USB drive, so you can share your music with everyone but keep your personal files private.
The DIR-505 can also be used as a media server for your home, and includes a built-in DLNA server to stream media stored on your USB storage drive to any DLNA compliant player, including the PlayStation 3® and Xbox 360®.
