New Wireless-N Travel Router Released From StarTech
StarTech.com, a leading manufacturer of hard-to-find connectivity parts, has announced the availability of their Wireless-N Travel Router, which lets users create a WiFi hotspot from a wired network connection. The travel router makes it easy to connect wireless-only mobile devices such as iPads or smartphones to a wired network, and can be powered from an iPad wall charger or any computer USB port using the included USB extension cable.
The portable wireless router features a compact footprint that makes it an ideal accessory for any iPad user who travels frequently. The router allows multiple wireless devices such as smartphones, tablets or laptops to access a network simultaneously from a single, wired connection, without paying individual access fees for each device. The travel router also features a pass-through USB port that can be used to charge a mobile device even while the router is in use, so users can enjoy wireless Internet access while keeping their device charged.
Ideal for travelers, the portable wireless router creates a wireless network from a wired connection, allowing multiple mobile devices to connect to the network simultaneously
“This compact travel router is an essential travel companion for anyone who travels frequently and requires wireless network access” said Carey Cline, Senior Product Manager for StarTech.com’s wireless networking product line. “Many hotels offer WiFi access for a fee and often lock in-room access to a single device. Also, depending on how many users are accessing the network, paid access can be slow and unsecure. With this compact router, users can create a secured wireless connection they can use with multiple devices, saving expense while remaining fully mobile”.
