D-Link has launched a new product DIR-505 that has been designed to give tablet and smartphone users access to a host of connectivity features while at home or on the go.

The new D-Link All-in-One Mobile Companion allows users to connect to a Wi-Fi network whenever available and also gives access to USB based sharing features, PC Mag reports.


The company explained that the device allowed users to share music, video, photos and other files between a USB drive or an external hard drive and their iPhone, iPad or Android devices.

The DIR-505 will also allow users to sync files and charge their smartphones, the company revealed while launching the product at the Consumer Electronics Show taking place in Las Vegas.

The All-in-One Mobile Companion, which is smaller than a standard computer mouse, also has an ethernet port to connect to the internet in a conference room or hotel room.

“The All-in-One Mobile Companion DIR-505 is perfect for travelers and mobile professionals, allowing people to access content on an external hard drive or thumb drive from any mobile device, as well as sync videos, music and photos, automatically,” said Daniel Kelley, associate vice president of marketing, D-Link North America.

“In addition, it serves as a great travel router/access point for instant wireless from any hotel or conference room where a network already exists,” he added.

·Easy to view and manage your camera DCS-932L from mydlink.com
·Compact design with night vision that lets you view 24/7
·Wireless connectivity
·VGA (640×480) resolution
·4x digital zoom
·Price: $99.99

Here’s a few scenarios for using the D-Link Camera:

·Keeping an eye on the kids: only if they are your kids!
·Checking up on home intruders; and being able to watch what they steal.
·Making sure the babysitter stays out of trouble of if she’s wearing that short skirt you love.
·Making sure that cheese soufflé you’re cooking doesn’t catch fire while you’re downing tequila shots at a bar across town.
·Use as a wingman tool to coax women back to your place by showing them your place.


The device D-Link DCS-932L is a wireless home network surveillance camera, which enables you to watch the goings on in your home – from anywhere in the world – at ANY TIME POSSIBLE.


The wheels of possibility begin churning as I remove the D-Link camera from its box. This small, sleek device allows 24/7 monitoring of what ever is stationed on the other side of its lens. But it gets cooler because we now live……..IN THE FUTURE!!!!! (Note a tons of exclamation points.)

How it works is, you connect the camera up to the Internet via plugging the gadget into your D-Link  router. Navigate to the D-Link website and download the software onto your computer and register an account. Now here’s where it gets cool: with your Smartphone, download the My D-Link Lite app. Once done, you can open the app on your phone and see the camera footage of your home in real-time. WELCOME TO THE FUTURE! Well, almost real-time; there’s a second or two delay. But still… WELCOME BACK TO THE FUTURE!

Not only is the footage in color (well, mostly black-and-white) but you can also pick up audio as well. Sounds like the perfect device to install at the Topless Women Pillow Fight Factory. If that’s not your bag, you can access your home footage from anywhere in the world – if you don’t have access to a Smartphone, then simply click onto the Internet to see the footage The only small drawback is, you are only given a one minute time limit with the amount of footage you can watch, before you have to refresh the app. The D-Link app also allows you to take snapshot frame grabs and zoom in and zoom out of the frame, and has night vision as well.

On this article the user can configure the internal network settings of the D-Link DIR-645 router and also able to configure the built-in DHCP server to assign IP addresses to computers on the network. The IP address that is configured here is the IP address that is used to access the Web-based management interface. If you change the IP address in this section, you may need to adjust your PC’s network settings to access the network again.

Router IP Address:

Enter the IP address of the router. The default IP address is If you change the IP address, once you click Apply, you will need to enter the new IP address in your browser to get back into the configuration utility.

Default Subnet Mask:

Enter the Subnet Mask. The default subnet mask is

Host Name:

Enter a Host Name to identify this device.

Local Domain Name:

Enter the local domain name used here. (Optional).

Enable DNS Relay:

Uncheck the box to transfer the DNS server information from your ISP to your computers. If checked, your computers will use the router for a DNS server.



D-Link DIR-645 DHCP Server Settings

DHCP stands for Dynamic Host Control Protocol. This device has a built-in DHCP server. The DHCP Server will automatically assign an IP address to the computers on the LAN/private network. Be sure to set your computers to be DHCP clients by setting their TCP/IP settings to “Obtain an IP Address Automatically.” When you turn your computers on, they will automatically load the proper TCP/IP settings provided by the router. The DHCP Server will automatically allocate an unused IP address from the IP address pool to the requesting computer. You must specify the starting and ending address of the IP address pool.

Enable DHCP Server:

Check this box to enable the DHCP server on your router. Uncheck to disable this function.

DHCP IP Address Range:

Enter the starting and ending IP addresses for the DHCP server’s IP assignment.

DHCP Lease Time:

The length of time for the IP address lease. Enter the Lease time in minutes.

Always Broadcast:

If all the computers on the LAN successfully obtain their IP addresses from the router’s DHCP server as expected, this option can remain disabled. However, if one of the computers on the LAN fails to obtain an IP address from the router’s
DHCP server, it may have an old DHCP client that incorrectly turns off the broadcast flag of DHCP packets. Enabling this option will cause the router to always broadcast its responses to all clients, thereby working around the problem, at the cost of increased broadcast traffic on the LAN.

NetBIOS announcement:

Check this box to allow the DHCP Server to offer NetBIOS configuration settings to the LAN hosts. NetBIOS allow LAN hosts to discover all other computers within the network, e.g. within Network Neighborhood.

Learn NetBIOS from WAN:

If NetBIOS announcement is switched on, it will cause WINS information to be learned from the WAN side, if available. Turn
this setting off to configure manually.

NetBIOS Scope:

This is an advanced setting and is normally left blank. This allows the configuration of a NetBIOS ‘domain’ name under which network hosts operate. This setting has no effect if the ‘Learn NetBIOS information from WAN’ is activated.


NetBIOS node type:

This field indicates how network hosts are to perform NetBIOS name registration and discovery. H-Node, this indicates a Hybrid-State of operation. First WINS servers are tried, if any, followed by local network broadcast. This is generally the preferred mode if you have configured WINS servers. M-Node (default), this indicates a Mixed-Mode of operation. First Broadcast operation is performed to register hosts and discover other hosts, if broadcast operation fails, WINS servers are tried, if any. This mode favours broadcast operation which may be preferred if WINS servers are reachable by a slow network link and the majority of network services such as servers and printers are local to the LAN. P-Node, this indicates to use WINS servers ONLY. This setting is useful to force all NetBIOS operation to the configured WINS servers. You must have configured at least the primary WINS server IP to point to a working WINS server. B-Node, this indicates to use local network broadcast ONLY. This setting is useful where there are no WINS servers available, however, it is preferred you try M-Node operation first. This setting has no effect if the ‘Learn NetBIOS information from WAN’ is activated.

Primary WINS Server IP address:

Configure the IP address of the preferred WINS server. WINS Servers store information regarding network hosts, allowing
hosts to ‘register’ themselves as well as discover other available hosts, e.g. for use in Network Neighborhood. This setting has no effect if the ‘Learn NetBIOS information from WAN’ is activated.

Secondary WINS Server IP address:

Configure the IP address of the backup WINS server, if any. This setting has no effect if the ‘Learn NetBIOS information from WAN’ is activated.
