Mobile Cloud Companion

This device features multiple wireless modes making it adaptable to your varied needs. In Router mode it lets you share your broadband Internet connection wirelessly by simply connecting it to your cable or DSL modem. AP mode allows you to create a private wireless network instantly – the perfect solution for business meetings where file-sharing is a necessity. Repeater mode extends your existing wireless network meaning browsing is no longer limited to particular rooms. Alternatively you can use this device to create a Wi-Fi hotspot to share your Internet connection wirelessly across all your devices. This is particularly useful on occasions when you’re at a hotel or café.

Compact portable design

Its compact design is small enough to fit in your pocket and includes plug adapters for you to use conveniently in the United States, Great Britain or Europe. The ability to charge mobile devices, including high-power devices such as iPads, means that you have one less charger to carry around when you are travelling.

Easy to set up, easy to use

Download the free Quick Router Setup Mobile app (QRS Mobile app) on your iOS or Android device for simple step-by-step setup. Alternatively, you can also use the built-in setup wizard through a web browser on your PC or laptop.

Securely access, store, share and stream files with ease

SharePort™ Mobile serves up effortless access to stored personal files and multimedia whenever a hard drive or flash storage drive is connected to the router’s built-in USB port. Music, video, and photos can be streamed or transferred to multiple users with the easy touch-based mobile app for iOS and Android devices, or to users with a compatible web browser. For added convenience, the router’s USB port also doubles as a power source for charging or powering a mobile device.
