You can use the HUAWEI E585 as a USB modem or as a wireless router. To use it as a USB modem, switch to modem mode and plug it into your computer. The HUAWEI E585 has modem drivers stored in its memory and you can install the drivers onto your Mac or PC.
Once you are done with the installation, restart and you can connect to the Internet via D-Link Connection Manager. Here, you can set up your Wireless Personal Area Network (WPAN) via the D-Link router web interface. The web interface is easy to use, and it offers a multitude of security options, such as WEP, WPA or WPA2. In addition, you can set up MAC (Media Access Control) address filters or firewalls and even enable DMZ (Demilitarised Zone).
The device allows up to 16 devices – from your iPads to your PSPs – to connect to the Internet via WiFi, and supports download speeds up to 7.2Mbps.
If you are on the road often, please don’t put this pocket router in your bag for too long – it gets really hot. And though D-Link claims the battery can last for around four hours, it becomes flat after less than three hours of usage with only two devices connected to it. But you can always plug it to your laptop to charge.
Overall, the D-Link HUAWEI E585 is a compact and light wireless router that is easy to set up and use. It will be an invaluable companion to the mobile warrior who has plenty of WiFi gadgets in his bag.
