Best $30 I ever spent to increase wifi signal rec8/30/2013
The instructions were kind of confusing but I plugged this little gizmo into the ethernet of my office....it amplifies the wifi signal from the store ACROSS THE STREET and also enables the office ethernet to become a wifi signal. My coworkers with smartphones are very happy!
Great Little Device7/17/2013
The D-Link 505L is a great little device for both home and on the road. Set up was quick and simple using my smartphone and tablet, far easier than similar devices I have used in the past. I use the 505L primarily as a signal repeater and it works well for that function. The signal coverage is a bit on the small side, but that's to be expected given the small size of the device. It is definitely capable of giving you a boost when your hotel signal is marginal. I especially like the simplicity and size of the device, no need for a separate cord and power plug. I agree with other reviewers on the marginal capability for charging a tablet, though it works perfectly fine for a phone. All in all, a well executed concept by D-Link.
Great for travel5/3/2013
This portable router is great for not only sharing a free WIFI connection between your devices without reconfiguring each device, but adds a level of security you don't normally have when on the go. Even when ther isn't a wifi connection your devices can still communicate, and with a portable hard drive, they can have media files and documents as well.
easy to setup4/29/2013
I have yet to use when travelling so hard to tell if the setup will work in hotels as well as it did in the house
Easy to set up and to use4/24/2013
Must to have if you move around and need Wi-Fi. 1. Easy to set up the wireless. I did not change any thing, just use the password coming with the kit. Works fine in my office and home. 2. If want to get access to the files on the USB plugged in to the 505L, need to download and install an app for my android tablet. It's not as easy as Step 1. 3. The power output is lower than my original charger of my tablet. Took a longer time to get 100% full charge. 4. Tested it in my home, set in the basement, good to excellent signal on the second floor. In other words, it provides a powerful wireless to the internet. 5. Finally, might be more important, the user needs to read and follows the instructions. With a permanent marker, I wrote these steps on the surface of 505L for easy use in different locations.
Nice accessory for my apple products3/6/2013
I purchased this item for the sole intent of adding extra storage to my i phone & i pad. After some trial-error set ups (the set up instructions are not the best), I was able to wireless view the contents on my USB drive. I'm still testing this product but I can say that it does what it claims.
