Creates a Reliable High-Speed 802.11n Wi-Fi Personal Mobile Hotspot Network Using Fast 3G Internet Access; Serves as a Powerful Backup for Conventional Internet Access
D-Link today announced it is now shipping the D-Link® 3G Mobile Wireless Router (DIR-412), a portable router that creates a high-speed mobile connection while on the road, or as a backup for a local ADSL/cable Internet service network. The DIR-412 allows users to access a worldwide broadband Internet connection through a secure 802.11n Wi-Fi network from just about anywhere, to share with up to five Wi-Fi enabled devices.
Customers can use the mobile wireless router for home and small or remote offices by connecting to their DSL/cable modem, providing users with a fast primary Internet service while using their mobile Internet service as a backup Internet connection. If the user's primary Internet access goes down, the mobile wireless router employs an auto-failover feature to ensure an uninterrupted connection by automatically connecting to the 3G mobile broadband network.
The Plug-and-Play capability of the D-Link Mobile Wireless Router means it can be installed quickly and easily to set up a mobile Wi-Fi hotspot just about anywhere. It is ideal for situations where an impromptu Wi-Fi network must be set up, or wherever conventional Internet access is unavailable, such as on RVs, trains, boats and remote office locations.
With advanced network security, the DIR-412 ensures a secure Wi-Fi network through the use of WPA/WPA2 encryption. The user simply presses the WPS button to quickly establish a secure connection to new devices. The Mobile Wireless Router also utilizes dual-active firewalls (SPI and NAT) to prevent potential attacks and intrusions from across the Internet.
Featuring Wireless N150 technology, the DIR-412 provides optimal performance, extended wireless range and fast file transfers for superior reception throughout the home. It is backward compatible with previous version Wireless G devices.
