D-Link, the global leader in consumer network connectivity, today announced the D-Link Wireless Pocket Router/AP, a portable wireless networking solution for business travelers wanting to access and share hotel Internet connections, wirelessly connect Ethernet devices or secure shared information from potential hackers. The D-Link Wireless Pocket Router/AP is smaller than the average PDA, measures 3.25" x 2.5" x.75" and ships with a convenient carrying case to make it a complete and compact wireless networking solution. For added mobility, the D-Link Wireless Pocket Router/AP can be powered over USB if power outlets are not available.

"With its small footprint and three-in-one functionality, the D-Link Wireless Pocket Router/AP is a perfect connectivity companion for the business traveler."

The D-Link Wireless Pocket Router/AP (DWL-G730AP) is a convenient and portable network device that offers today's traveler the flexibility of connecting computers to share files and hotel Internet access, wirelessly connect any Ethernet-equipped to a 802.11b/g network or protect computers and files from hackers and other intruders that are sharing a public connection, such as hot spot internet access locations. The included slim carrying case included with the unit assures that all the required cables are centrally located and protects the unit while being transported.

The D-Link Wireless Pocket Router/AP provides business travelers with a simple and flexible wireless network no matter where they travel. A small switch on the back of the unit allows users to easily select one of the three wireless modes: Router/Firewall, Access Point and Wireless Client modes. The integrated Router mode features a robust firewall suite, an internal DHCP server that automatically assigns IP addresses to multiple connected devices, supports VPN Pass-through and includes a set of robust firewall features, including Network Address Translation (NAT) and MAC filtering. While in Access Point mode, the Wireless Pocket Router/AP can connect multiple wireless devices, such as laptops and PDAs, to a single Internet connection, be it a hotel or a conference room location. The Wireless Pocket Router/AP can make any Ethernet-equipped device wireless without installing software or configuring network settings, drawing power from either a wall receptacle or from the included Power-Over-USB adapter.

The D-Link Wireless Pocket Router/AP supports WPA-PSK, as well as 64/128 WEP encryption to secure your wireless data communications, keeping it safe from prying eyes. In Access Point mode, the D-Link Wireless Pocket Router/AP adds support for 802.1x user authentication with an external RADIUS server, making it transferable from multiple office environments.
