NetShair Link Portable Router and Media Hub

The new IOGEAR NetShair Link portable router and media hub provides Wi-Fi Internet connection, and allows you to stream your own movies, music, photos and files to all your wireless devices. The NetShair Link converts a wired Internet connection to Wi-Fi or shares an existing wireless Internet connection across multiple devices. Plug your USB flash drive or portable USB hard drive into the USB port and the built-in Wi-Fi connection shares the content with up to 7 devices within range.

More than just a great travel companion, the NetShair Link provides an all-in-one Internet and media sharing solution for apartments and smaller homes. Access the internet on your laptop, watch a movie from your library on your tablet, and stream music or photos to your smartphone- all at the same time! Connect to the NetShair Link using a web browser, or download the free NetShair App for iPod®/iPhone®/iPad® from the App Store or Google Play Store for Android® devices. With the NetShair Link from IOGEAR there is no reason to fight for TV control- everyone can watch a different movie right on their own mobile device!

Already have an external drive loaded with music, movies, etc.? Just plug it in and it's ready to use. Unlike competitive products that only support Windows formats, NetShair Link reads NTFS (Windows), HFS+ (Mac) and FAT32 formatted storage for true plug 'n play capability!

Great for Business Professionals

NetShair Link is the perfect companion for business users. Just load your presentation onto a flash drive and plug the NetShair Link into a wall outlet in your conference room, board room, etc. and your clients can access it from their laptop, smartphone or tablet- without the need for an Internet connection! While on the road, the NetShair Link turns your hotel room’s wired Ethernet cable into an instant Wi-Fi hotspot for all your devices. Many hotels with wireless Internet access charge a fee for each connection, but not anymore thanks to the NetShair Link. Simply connect the NetShair Link to the hotel's wireless network and a single connection fee provides Internet access to all your devices.

USB Charging

Need to charge your smartphone and/or tablet? The NetShair Link has both a primary USB port and an additional 2.1A USB charging port, so you can still share content while charging a device. When not using the primary USB for content sharing you can also connect your smartphone, iPod, etc. for dual charging, so now you can leave BOTH wall chargers at home!
