Home network products are getting so small, you can carry the components with you, and set up a network any where – in a hotel room, in a conference room or where ever. Networking solutions provider D-Link, has launched a highly portable multifunction wireless router-cum access device. The Wireless N Pocket Router/Access Point, DAP-1350, can be used three ways: as a wireless router to create an 802.11n Wi-Fi network; as an access point to add Wi-Fi to an existing wired network for connectivity on the go or as a way to connect an Ethernet-ready device, such as a desktop PC or Xbox 360 gaming console, to a Wi-Fi network for increased flexibility and convenience.
The DAP-1350 is small enough to carry while travelling and sets up easily to share an Internet connection or add Wi-Fi to an existing wired network in a conference room, hotel room or anywhere a Wi-Fi network is needed. When operating in wireless client mode, the router supports Power over USB to use a PC to power the device if a power outlet is not accessible.
It supports the WPA and WPA2 encryption protocol regardless of client devices. It is equipped with a simple push button to easily add devices and secure the network. It also includes SharePortTM Technology, which allows sharing of a USB printer or storage when in router mode.
D-Link DAP-1350 costs Rs 5999 in India.
