D-Link Unveils Wireless Router For Road Warriors

The company's Wireless Pocket Router/AP measures 3.25 inches by 2.5 inches by .75 inches, D-Link said in a statement. It can either be plugged into an electrical outlet or draw its power via a USB cable connected to a laptop.

The router is aimed at enabling users to either share files with others or to share connections in hotels and similar venues, the company said. It supports 802.11g and 802.11b. It has a built-in firewall for security and supports WPA-PSK, as well as 64/128 WEP encryption.

D-Link is the second vendor to offer a portable router in recent weeks. SMC previously announced its portable router aimed at road warriors.

The company said the device will be available in mid-September and will cost $99.99.
