     Wed, Nov 18 2015 | 11:51A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The RP-AC56 is a 2×2 802.11ac wireless extender, designed to compete with and outperform typically affordable offerings. It’s an upgrade from Asus’ older AC750 model, and comes with a nifty music streaming function, for wireless audio playback from a tablet or smartphone.

Tenda AC15 AC1900 Router @ LanOC Reviews
     Sat, Nov 14 2015 | 4:03P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to networking nearly all of the companies that come to mind have been around for what seems like forever. It is rare to see new companies bust into the market. Well recently a new company called Tenda reached out to me about covering their latest router. I found out when researching them that Tenda has actually been around for 16 years, even though their name isn’t exactly a household name. The AC15 router that they wanted me to check out caught my eye though and I figured I would see what Tenda has to offer and find out if their new AC1900 router has what it takes to be the router you go with when moving to Wireless AC.

Rivet Networks Q&A: From The Bigfoot Killer NIC
     Sat, Nov 14 2015 | 4:02P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
PC gamers and longtime HotHardware readers will no doubt be familiar with the Killer series of network controllers. We’ve taken a look at a number of the add-in versions over the years, including the original beast with the massive “K” heatsink. Many of today’s gamer-targeted motherboards also feature Killer networking technology, for example. Though at their core Killer NICs are network controllers, that function just like more basic, mainstream solutions, they offer additional features designed to enhance performance and potentially improve the gaming experience. How the Killer NICs work their magic isn’t quite clear to gamers, however, so we thought we’d chat with the folks at Rivet Networks – the current purveyors of Killer Networking product – to learn more about what the company is up to and where it’s headed...

D-Link Powerline AV2 1000 HD Gigabit Passthrough Starter Kit Review
     Sat, Nov 14 2015 | 9:02A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As we all know manufacturers all around the world keep researching ways to amplify/boost wireless connectivity via the introduction of new hardware and standards but for people who place performance and data security above all else (versatility due to the lack of wires mostly) wired connectivity will probably always be the one at the top. Unfortunately although the design of new buildings all around the world includes wall channels for the installation of CAT5-7 cabling making it extremely easy for people to setup a local area network the same doesn't apply for older buildings and that's where powerline adapters come in. D-Link is considered to be amongst the top Network manufacturers in the world for almost two decades now and although it did take us a while to get our hands on their latest powerline kit to see just how it compares against similar models released by the other leading manufacturers it's finally here.

ASRock G10 Gaming Router Review
     Sat, Oct 31 2015 | 12:01P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The G10 is the first 802.11ac router from ASRock, a firm that until now has been better known for its motherboard designs. It supports up to quad-stream 802.11ac wireless speeds, along with older standards such as 802.11n over both 2.4GHz and 5GHz. With a few extras as well, including a wireless access point / media streaming dongle, it looks like quite a compelling offering.

TP-Link Archer VR900 AC 1900 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Modem Router Review
     Thu, Oct 22 2015 | 4:01P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For today’s review I am taking the TP-Link Archer VR900AC 1900 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit VDSL/ADSL Modem Router for a spin in our test area to see how well it performs, it surely sounds like a great device. While the Archer VR900 looks very similar to the Archer C9 that we reviewed not long ago, it’s quite the different device and it also sports some general improvements over the C9.

802.11ac Wi-Fi Router Round-Up: ASUS, Netgear
     Thu, Oct 22 2015 | 9:02A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Wireless routers are going through somewhat of a renaissance right now, thanks to the arrival of the 802.11ac standard that is "three times as fast as wireless-N" and the proliferation of Internet-connected devices in our homes and pockets. Whereas before we merely had a handful of laptops and PCs connected to the internet at various times, we now have homes with many devices connected all the time, including our phones, tablets, computers, smart televisions, game consoles, and even our smoke detectors. Though wireless N wasn't bad at the time, it's simply not ideal when dozens of devices are connected at the same time, and certainly not in a house that's very large. That's where 802.11ac comes in, as it offers much-improved speeds and the ability to support a lot more clients at the same time. Now that there are several bad-ass routers on the market that are able to take full advantage of everything 802.11ac has to offer, we figured we'd round up the best-of-the-best and put them through their paces.

Tenda AC15 AC1900 Dual-Band WiFi Router Review
     Fri, Oct 16 2015 | 9:00A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It used to be a pretty well understood fact that merging to the 802.11ac wireless standard was an expensive task, with just the thought about having to replace both your router and wireless card made anyone’s wallet shudder, but that was back in 2013. Come back, three years in the future, and we encounter devices like the one Benchmark Reviews has in it’s hands today. The Tenda AC15 AC1900 Router is not only AC capable, but it features a Broadcom’s BCM4708 Wi-Fi chipset capable of delivering speeds of up to 1300 Mbps over the 5 Ghz band. Astonishingly, it comes at only $87.99, which is the lowest price tag we have ever encountered on any AC1900 router.

Linksys WRT1900AC Dual-Band Wireless Router Review
     Tue, Oct 13 2015 | 4:02P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Over the last few years there have been many products that have come to market that have had the ability to grab our attention for one reason or another. In some instances this has been due to the new technologies and levels of performance that they bring or in other instances it may have been a radical design that changes the way in which we look at type of product. The product that we’re looking at today though has me buzzing in a completely different way and one which I doubt will happen again any time soon. Linksys’ WRT1900AC is a router that, as anyone into their networking would know, is built on the legacy of the WRT54G, which came to market back in December 2003 and it’s range of substrates that followed, including the WRT54GS. Of all the features that made the original WRT so unique and legendary, the Open-source platform and performance for the time were the two biggest selling points. To show how successful this router was and believe it or not, still is, the WRT54G and GS have been used for so many applications aside residential network applications, with open-source firmware playing a major part in these unique applications.

ASUS' newest routers represent a microcosm of today's Wireless AC market. On one hand we have the XStream-powered RT-AC3200 while on the other there's the MU-MIMO RT-AC87U. Both are awesome solutions.

Today we take a look at the new GS60 6QE which incorporates a Intel Core i7 6700HQ Skylake processor, 8GB of DDR4 memory, Nvidia GTX970m, M.2 SSD and 4K Ultra HD panel. MSI have managed to cram all this tasty hardware into a chassis that measures only 20mm at the thickest point.

Netgear Powerline 1200 PLP1200 Adapter Set Review
     Mon, Oct 05 2015 | 12:00P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
WiFi is widely considered to be one of the most important technologies people currently use so it's no wonder that you find it pretty much everywhere you go from cafeterias, bars, clubs, fast food joints and restaurants up to airport terminals, shopping malls, hotels, parks and even in hospitals. Well there's no denying that WiFi has opened new horizons in the industry since thanks to that people can have access to the internet (amongst things including personal and public content) without the need of cables but wireless connectivity is far from perfect and due to signal strength limitations it's not really suitable for every possible scenario. Powerline adapters have come a long way since their introduction in the market several years ago and now offer much higher data transfer rates and much further compared to most WiFi enabled modem/routers. The latest Power line model by Netgear is the Powerline 1200 (PLP1200) and that's what we'll be looking at today.
