DIR-506L's compact design allows it to fit right in your pocket, and the rechargeable battery means you don't even need a power outlet to share your Internet connection or create a network. You can also plug it into a powered USB port to recharge the battery.

The router has one LAN/WAN 10/100Base-T port.

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.

The Pocket Cloud Router 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.
