NETGEAR Nighthawk X8 - AC5300 Tri-Band Quad-Stream Wi-Fi Router
     Sat, Jun 04 2016 | 12:00P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NETGEAR touts the Nighthawk X8 AC5300 (R8500) Smart Wi-Fi router as “the next wave in Wi-Fi”. Generally, I am inclined to dismiss this sort of hyperbole, but the $350/£350 802.11AC includes features that are a reasonable step up from other models including: quad-streams, two 802.11AC radios, Wave 2 enhancements , and six Gigabit Ethernet ports, with two 802.3ad (link aggregation) enabled. Alongside this, it also includes a feature that should have a tangible benefit for all clients – active antennas. By moving the amplifiers from the mainboard to the tops of the antennas, there should be a clear benefit in signal strength and clarity. I am not sure that is enough to count as a “next wave”, but it has got me very interested in testing out the R8500.

     Sat, May 28 2016 | 9:01A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Asus PL-N12 WiFi HomePlug AV500 Powerline Adapter kit is a relatively simple pair of adapters that simultaneously extend network range over both power lines and wireless. Designed for affordability, with support for wireless standards up to 802.11n, it supports an encrypted wired signal over power lines, adds a second Ethernet port to the main access point and has a useful standby mode to cut energy use when idle.

ASUSTOR AS3202T Network Attached Storage System
     Fri, May 27 2016 | 2:39P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Impressively, the ASUSTOR AS3202T features twice as many CPU cores as the AS3102T and uses less power at the same time. But is it worth the extra $40?

Amped Wireless Athena AC2600 RTA2600 MU-MIMO Wireless Router Review
     Fri, May 27 2016 | 2:38P | Networking | PermaLink

     Tue, May 24 2016 | 5:10P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

TP-LINK AC1750 Wi-Fi Range Extender
     Sun, May 22 2016 | 4:00P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"If placed in the right position, RE450 Range Extender from TP-LINK can help you cover dead Wi-Fi spots inside your office or apartment by retransmitting the received signal via wired connection but can also create additional networks so the laptop/desktop/smartphone or other devices you are using will get full signal. The product is easy to relocate because it also includes the power adapter so we only have to plug it in and adjust the antennas in a position of our choice. RE450 also supports the latest 1300Mbps AC standard on the 5GHz band so we have obtained much better results in the tests compared to the previous generations."

Anonabox Pro Tor And VPN Router Review:
     Sun, May 08 2016 | 9:02A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Tor project was designed to combat the scourge of tracking and invasion of privacy across the internet. It's is a freely accessible network of global relays that bounce traffic all around the world and encrypt the path it takes, making it difficult to track one’s behavior online. Tor, which stands for The Onion Router, is available through many mechanisms including a browser, Android client, and now hardware in the form of the Anonabox (note this hardware was developed by a third-party, not the Tor Project itself).

TP-LINK AC2600 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router Review
     Sun, May 01 2016 | 9:01A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"TP-LINK did not go on the Sitecom route of using one of the latest OpenWrt builds (including customization in order to fit the new hardware features), but built on a proven stable software they have built for quite some time now and could have been also seen with their Touch P5 high-end router. Besides that, we are getting the latest MU-MIMO capabilities, a brand new chassis design and the Qualcomm dual-core IPQ8064 Internet processor at its heart, clocked at 1.4GHz."

QNAP TAS-268 Dual Bay NAS review
     Thu, Apr 21 2016 | 4:02P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Network storage is becoming more and more popular with the home user. As their data needs change, so does they way in which they store their data. More and more, I see each individual family member has their own PC and rather than just share a folder on one of the PCs, it makes sense to have a low power …

Synology RT1900ac Wireless Router
     Tue, Apr 19 2016 | 10:49A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Synology is widely known for its NAS products and has now decided to enter the router market with the RT1900ac Wi-Fi router, supporting transfers up to a total of 1900 Mbps. A very promising product with an advanced OS, it is also quite affordably priced.

Linksys EA7500 Max-Stream 802.11AC Router
     Thu, Apr 14 2016 | 4:01P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Overall the performance of the EA7500 is quite fantastic. While the dual-core CPU seems to be a bit laggy when it comes to loading pages and data on the web interface, it certainly has enough power to run a loaded network. The router ended up being the backbone at our 2016 LAN event - VulcLAN and it kept up with over 80 connected devices. It managed traffic, connections, wired and wireless clients and even managed to pull some limited QoS...

Synology RT1900ac High Speed Wirless AC
     Sun, Apr 10 2016 | 9:03A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
You read the headline correctly – this is not a review of a Synology NAS, but instead a wireless router. If this sounds unusual to you, you are not alone. Synology is a Network-Attached Storage (NAS) company, or at least it used to be, as it's now taking all its networking expertise and jumping into the router market. Plainly named, the Synology RT1900ac Router, the company’s fledgling entry into this crowded market, is a dual-band AC unit. As you might have guessed, it’s capable of 1,900Mb/s of bandwidth across its 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands, offering up to 600Mb/s on the 2.4GHz spectrum, 1,300Mb/s on the 5GHz spectrum and it's 802.11ac compatible and compliant. Though that all sounds pretty good, Synology isn't looking to innovate in this market on the hardware side, but rather on the software side, as the company is offering its router with a totally new interface powered by its NAS software IP that's unlike anything we've ever seen before, for a router at least...

MAX-STREAM EA7500 Router.
     Tue, Mar 29 2016 | 12:01P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Linksys MAX-STREAM EA7500 may not be marketed as the fastest or less expensive router around but its combination of MU-MIMO and many other features makes it one of the best.

     Mon, Mar 28 2016 | 1:19P | Networking | PermaLink
