D-Link has introduced a second multifunction mobile AP/storage sharer.
The DIR-506L SharePort Go is a single-band 802.11bgn "N300" travel router with a USB 2.0 port for drive sharing.
The Go has a built-in rechargeable battery that D-Link says provides up to 4 hours of power. The battery can also be used to charge any portable device that uses USB charging. The device itself can be powered via the USB port or an USB AC adapter (not provided).
The DIR-506L joins the DIR-505 SharePort Mobile Companion as the second member of the SharePort family. The DIR-505 doesn't have an internal battery and also is single-stream N, supporting maximum link rates only up to 150 Mbps.
