Podcasting What Geeks Really Want To Hear

Monday, February 19, 2007

This is an obvious evolution, but it looks pretty nifty.  Bascially its a wireless router that can interface to your EVDO data capable cell phone.  What this means is that you can share your EVDO connection with those less fortunate non-EVDO-capable friends by serving up an access point that routes out your cell phone data service.  Now, you could do this by hacking together a machine to talk both and run HostAP but this is a nice “all in firmware” box that, theoretically, you just have to plug-in to the wall and your cell phone and “just works”. The advantage here i sthat you won’t have to set up yet another machine to run it. The disadvantage, as with anything firmware-based, you won’t have the control over exactly what its doing, and/or you won’t have the power to create the exact configuration you want, but if all you want is EVDO to 802.11 and back again, this could be the device for you… http://www.dlink.com/products/?pid=524
