The HoloPort should connect to the router itself because it runs as a stand-alone server with a Linux distro installed, pre-configured, to run/host efficiently. A HoloPort needs Internet service, but it does not need to be connected to a computer. 

Do HoloPorts have WiFi?

HoloPorts do not have built in WiFi. Instead you'll plug it into your Internet service provider router with a standard Ethernet cable. The cable will be provided in the box.

Will you need a static IP to run a HoloPort?
