In some countries, hotel rooms are connected via a LAN cable and Wi-Fi may be an optional paid service. That’s nice for a laptop, but what happens when you have a tablet or smartphone that you want to connect wirelessly?

A pocket router like the D-Link DIR-506L may be the answer.

Launched here late last week, this little gizmo lets you share a connection wirelessly among roommates at a hotel and even works on a rechargeable battery. You can plug it into a wall jack, but if you really want to bring it along on the go, it can be charged via USB as well.

But more than just a router, the D-Link DIR-506L has a built-in Shareport feature that lets you wirelessly share the contents of a hard drive or thumb drive plugged to its USB port.

In other words, if you got files to share, say, photos that you and your project group require on the road, this S$89 gadget will let everyone have them while you are all on the bus travelling from one place to another.

Finally, the DIR-506L can also double up as a tiny, unobtrusive repeater for your Wi-Fi network at home. In this mode, it merely helps to extend your wireless network while staying neatly out of sight.
