Nice idea, portable and would have been perfect for ...

Robert C., Amazon
8 November 2014
  • Summary: Nice idea, portable and would have been perfect for my situation, but the app does not function with iOS 8.1. Returned the item after working with the tech support folks for 3 days. They were helpful and they narrowed the issue down to iOS 8.1. Told me I'd have to wait for the app to be updated. Sorry, couldn't wait. If you have iOS 8.1 make sure the app has been updated before you buy.

Do Not Update Firmware Wirelessly

Nabil, Amazon
12 March 2013
  • Summary: Upon receiving this item, I didn't have a hard time setting up my wireless connection since I'm familiar with using the dir-505L. The automated setup would ask for the product key which is found inside the router where you put the battery. I find that inconvenient since I would need to remove the battery just to get the key so I configured it my way. After that, I immediately tried the shareport go feature. but unfortunately it wouldn't detect my usb flash drive.

First impression from DIR-506L

Oleg Voloschuk, Amazon
27 November 2012
  • Summary: I purchased DIR-506L to be able to browse pictures and videos from my cameras on iPad. Here is my first impression after playing with this unit and SharePoint Mobile App for an hour: • Setup is simple. It took me a minute or two to make it work. I have D-Link router and AP and familiar with D-Link UI. It is good that the DIR-506L setup is similar to other D-Link products. • When I inserted the SD card with adapter, the unit started to build the file list (I guess).

Okay if range is not concern

Bhupendra, amazon.in
31 July 2014
  • Summary: This router is good for dongles. But the range is not so good. If you want good range, you should be around this router. Another thing to mention, it does not come with wall charger, you have to charge it with your laptop.
