You can also plug it into a powered USB port to recharge the battery. A pivoting stand allows for vertical use and folds away when you’re on-the-go.

Connect a USB storage device to your Pocket Cloud Router 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 SharePort™ Mobile app for mobile devices allows you to back up photos and videos stored your device.

Setting up the Pocket Cloud Router is simple. Just plug it in, connect to it wirelessly with a PC or mobile device, and follow the steps in the built-in Setup Wizard to configure the DIR-506L. It’s easy to set up and use in an instant, whenever you need it, and wherever you are.

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.

In 1986, D Link founder Ken Kao and six colleagues set out on an entrepreneurial venture that would forever change the computer networking industry. D Link was founded under the name Datex Systems. The name D Link takes the leading D from Datex, combining it with the concept of a “link” connecting people. In fact, D Link’s Chinese name roughly translates as “friends networking together.” This concept continues to shape D Link’s brand today. Though founded as a small venture, D Link has since swelled into an international networking giant with over 2,800 employees worldwide. D Link has emerged as a trusted brand with a worldwide reputation for robust and affordable networking solutions, and has renewed its commitment to developing “green” technologies and IPv6 ready hardware which will prepare its customers for an alluring new era of ultimate connectivity.
