    This review is from: D-Link Systems Wi-Fi AC750 Portable Router and Charger (DIR-510L) (Personal Computers)

    [Review edited 4/18/2014]
    Pros:
    + a/b/g/n/ac on simultaneous 2.4 and 5GHz
    + Share network access with up to five devices
    + 4000maH battery that can charge a tablet
    + Can share an Ethernet connection
    + Guest mode
    + Multiple wireless profiles
    + DLNA server for media
    + Will power USB hard drives
    Cons:
    - Limited configuration
    - No repeater mode
    - Typical D-Link flakiness

    I admit it, I’m a sucker for travel routers. The DIR-510L is, let’s see, the sixth I’ve had, though I’m counting an ancient 3COM 802.11b router. In the D-Link line, I have the DIR-505 and DIR-506L – see my reviews of those. I also have two by TP-Link and one from ADATA. None of these have met all my needs, though the two D-Link models were usable after a few firmware updates. D-Link churns out new models regularly, often making minor revisions to an existing model (for example, DIR-505L vs. DIR-505), and then ending firmware fixes once a new model comes out. D-Link is also often a bit slow to release proper documentation, which sadly is the case with the DIR-510L. (Documentation eventually found – see edits and comments below.) But let’s see what we have here.

    The DIR-510L is a portable travel router that includes a hefty 4000maH lithium-polymer battery that will power the router as well as a USB-powered external device. There are two USB ports on the DIR-510L, one is marked .5A (for phones), the other is marked 1A for tablets. The 1A output will charge an iPad, but only when the unit is switched to the Charger-only mode – in router mode it won’t. A universal-voltage AC adapter is included with a hardwired MicroUSB cable.

    As a router, the DIR-510L supports wireless a/b/g/n/ac with both 2.4 and 5GHz support. It can not only connect to existing access points using those methods and frequencies, but it will itself serve as an access point with the same. There are three major modes of operation:

    Hotspot mode – this is what you use when you’re at a hotel or coffee shop and want to use that facility’s wireless Internet access. You connect your device to the DIR-510L’s WiFi (configurable for SSID, security type and password), then open a browser on your device to go to the DIR-510L’s home page. (By default the administrator password is blank, but you can (and should) set it.)

    Unlike every one of the travel routers I have used, the DIR-510L has a simple, easy to use home page layout that has just a few icons representing Internet access, the router itself, connected devices and SharePort (more on that later.) Tap on one of the icons to configure – in the case of hotspot mode, tap the Internet icon to select the access point you want to connect to and enter the password, if any. Once you do that and the router reboots, you can now connect to the hotel’s access point on your device just as you would directly. The advantage here is that once you do this setup, any other device you have (up to five) can connect through the DIR-510L without further ado, all looking to the hotel as if it was one device (potentially saving connect fees.)

    Router mode – this is similar to Hotspot but for cases where the Internet connection is by Ethernet. Connect that to the Ethernet jack at the bottom and connect as before.

    Mobile Router mode – theoretically this allows you to plug in a cellular USB modem and get your Internet access through that, sharing it over WiFi. Unfortunately, this works with only a select set of USB modems. When I first wrote this review the list was not easily found – it isn’t available from the “Downloads” section of the product page on D-Link’s web site, but rather on a separate support subsite whose URL you can find in my comment of April 4, 2014. The list is larger than I expected. Before buying, make sure that your cellular modem is on the supported list.

    The DIR-510L is what D-Link calls a SharePort router, which means it will share media that you connect by USB from flash drives and hard discs. When connected, the DIR-510L runs a DLNA server to make that content available. On my iPad I could “see” and play movies and photos I had on a Seagate hard drive, both through the free SharePort app and with DLNA clients on the iPad. Curiously, the D-Link web site has a tiny footnote saying that DLNA would be enabled in a future firmware update, but it worked for me with the original version.

    Contrary to my experiences with the DIR-505 and DIR-506L, the SharePort app worked very well for uploading photos from my iPad – I could select multiple files and upload them quickly. The older models…

    Very good portable wifi router and hotspot, with limitations, June 23, 2014

    This review is from: D-Link Systems Wi-Fi AC750 Portable Router and Charger (DIR-510L) (Personal Computers)
    Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What’s this?)
    Pros:
    -Share internet with up to 5 wifi devices simultaneously
    -Dual-band performance (2.4GHz and 5GHz)
    -Easy start-up, connection setting, and interface
    -Highly portable; wifi router can work on its own battery

    Cons:
    -Although the company recommends up to 5 wifi devices, I found that 4 devices was the limit without the device failing. Connecting 5 devices made the DIR-510L restart automatically, or fail and then make me restart it.
    -Can only work as either wifi router OR charger at any one time.
    -”Secure network connection” is only valid between the router and the device; router to internet is not secure. A solution for this is to use a virtual private network (VPN) to “secure” internet connection (or at least more secure than non-VPN connection).

    Overall, my new favorite portable wifi router. Highly recommended.

    Connection is easy, though you have to follow a series of steps correctly or you will have issues with connecting. What worked for me was as follows:
    -Charge the battery overnight.
    -Keep plugged in, and power up DIR-510L. You will see that the unit will either work as a battery charger OR a portable wifi router.
    -Wait one minute, and then you will see the SSIDs DIR510L (for 2.4GHz) and DIR510L_5GHz (for 5GHz). Select either one to connect.
    -Open a web browser, and type in “http://192.168.0.1″ in the address bar (without the quotes)
    -At the login screen, leave the password field blank (ie. no password)
    -At the home screen page, you can change the admin security settings for logging in to the router configuration interface. It is highly recommended that you create a password with a minimum of six characters to keep your router secure. The router will reset and you will then be asked to put in your password.
    -On the “Home” page, you can secure your wireless network. To secure your network, you may customize your Wi-Fi Network Name (SSID) and Password by clicking on the DIR-510L icon. You may choose different network settings for the 2.4 GHz and 5GHz bands.
    -Click on the DIR-510L router icon with the next to it to start the wizard
    -Click Secure your network in the pop-up window
    -On the Wi-Fi Settings page, enter the Wi-Fi Network Name (SSID) and Password for both the 2.4 GHz and 5GHz bands (enter password with minimum 8 characters)
    -Click “Save”
    -Now you have secured your wifi and login for the DIR-510L!!!

    To connect to wifi hotspot:
    On the Home page, when you wish to connect to the Internet using a Wi-Fi hotspot, there will be a next to the Internet icon. Click the icon to start the wizard.
    *You will see a pop-up window that says “The router is not connected…” Click Next to scan for an available Wi-Fi network.
    *Locate the Hotspot Network you would like to connect to and click “Select”
    *You will be required to enter a Password if there is a lock icon next to that network. Enter the Password
    and click “Save”
    *Wait while the router connects to the network
    –>This method worked successfully for me 1) at my home network, 2) at a local Starbucks, and 3) at a hotel wifi.

    To use as a wifi router:
    -Connect network port with RJ45 network cable to a router, switch, or modem.
    -Power on, and use the same settings a above.
    –>Now you have a wifi router with your own settings.

    UPDATE 2015-07-29: The battery charger component is a bit disappointing. This is not able to charge my iPhone 6 Plus (2915 mAh battery) to 100%. This gets my iPhone to about 90% when charging from about 20%. The only time it charged to 100% was when my iPhone still had 30% charge. This AC750 has a 4000 mAh battery size, so I’m not sure why it is not able to charge my iPhone to full.

    Replacement failed, June 21, 2014
    By 

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    This review is from: D-Link Systems Wi-Fi AC750 Portable Router and Charger (DIR-510L) (Personal Computers)
    I purchased this router so that I could easily connect all of my devices (pcs, laptops, smart phones, home theater system, tv, etc) to the internet wirelessly. It works perfectly for that. But the unit failed to operate after three hours of use. The battery/power light turned red and it would not connect to my devices or the internet.

    The Amazon return and replacement policy was great. I had the new unit in less than one week and it has been working fine for about one month now.

    7/6/2014 Update – Replacement unit worked fine for about one month. However, the power light turned red and the unit would not connect to my devices or the internet, even after several resets. It’s a great concept but needs some work to make it reliable.
