Review: D-Link DIR-510L portable router

04/08, 11:32am

Having Internet access in hotels and other similar locations used to be a miasma of connectivity issues. If Wi-Fi was available, it was (and often still is) overloaded, at a cost per device, and slow. The addition of 4G to most major markets has helped that somewhat, but in many cases, Wi-Fi is still the fastest option -- if not the cheapest sometimes, as the per-device charges still seem to be prevalent. The D-Link DIR-510L portable router tries to even this out somewhat, allowing users with an available tethered or cellular modem-provided 3G/4G, Wi-Fi, or Ethernet connection make a local area network in a small package, easily carried from place to place. Additionally, the device can be powered by (and give power to mobile devices from) an internal battery. How well does the device work in practice, though? Check our review to find out.
