D-Link hits CES with portable router and charger combos, WiFi range extenders and surveillance equipment

With the exception, perhaps, of the traditional trade show flu, nothing's thicker in the air CES than overlapping WiFi signals. Phones, PCs, SmartTVs, game consoles, tablets and routers are all desperately reaching out to something to connect to, and D-Link is happy to oblige. This year, the company is debuting the DIR-510L, a $100 portable router that doubles as a device charger. In addition to crafting wireless and ethernet signals into a local hotspot, this router can stream content from connected USB devices, share files wirelessly from any device plugged into its two USB ports and even charge gadgets with its built-in 4000mAh battery. If the diminutive router's range is too short for you, the firm is offering a pair of dual-band WiFi range extenders for $60 and $90, depending on how much bandwidth you need.

That extended network area will come in handy if you pick up D-Link's new WiFi Baby Camera, a lightweight child monitor that lets you peek in on your children from any device with a WiFi or cellular internet connection. The $180 shooter is outfitted with night vision, temperature and motion sensors and can even play pre-recorded lullabies on cue. If you're looking for something a bit more advanced, the company is also showing off a new mydlink Network Video Recorder for small businesses -- a $380 surveillance system with remote access, up to 4TB of video storage space and support for nine cameras. The gadgets are all being shown at CES 2014 this week, but you can find the details at the company's product pages in the adjacent source links.
