Trendnet Powerline 1200Mbps AV2 Adapter Kit
     Wed, Mar 04 2015 | 9:01A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We have just posted up our review of the Trendnet TPL-420E2K Powerline 1200Mbps AV2 kit. This is very speedy kit that gets great performance thanks to MIMO (multi-in, multi-out) features and is by far the fastest kit we've seen to date. It's faster than many wireless networks and doesn't have the same interference issues to deal with. If you need to really stretch your network, check our review for all the details.

TP-LINK Archer C9 AC1900 Dual-Band Router Review
     Tue, Feb 17 2015 | 9:01A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If there’s one thing everyone always seems to need, it is a new wireless router. Whether you’re using the mediocre solutions provided by your cable company, or an aging bargain model that you picked up at Target, chances are you could use a new one. In fact, we’ll venture to say that your old wireless router is literally the cause of your life’s problems. – Okay, maybe not. But still, it definitely isn’t helping.

Linksys WRT1900AC AC1900 Smart Wi-Fi Wireless Router
     Sat, Feb 14 2015 | 9:01A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Whether we like or not (i don't much) cables will soon become a thing of the past in most applications something which has been made clear from all the recent and continuous advancements in the industry from the new Wi-Fi standards (802.11ac) and technologies (such as Beamforming) up to wireless media streaming (via Wi-Fi) and even wireless electricity which although so far is primarily used in the charging of portable devices (PowerMat & Qi) we might see it sooner rather than later in our homes used to power full sized electrical appliances. Now although we haven't focused on every new wireless product out in the market we have tested several of the latest 802.11ac compatible Wi-Fi modem/routers lately and today we will the current flagship of the Linksys dual-band smart Wi-Fi router line the highly acclaimed WRT1900AC.

D-Link DNS-320L
     Wed, Feb 04 2015 | 9:03A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The D-Link DNS-320L also has the option to sign up to MyDLink in order to access files from the NAS anywhere in the world. After a simple registration process, the web interface becomes available and is very easy to navigate, and download and upload files to the device. There is also a very useful "MyDlink Access-NAS" app on an Android or iPhone that can be downloaded for free, allowing backups of material from a phone or the ability to access files stored on the NAS. You can also stream music from the device straight to the 'phone with the built-in media player within the app (depending on the speed of the data connection) and even set the app to automatically save photos taken with your 'phone's camera straight to the NAS. Handy!"

Tenda AV1000 Gigabit Powerline Adapter Review
     Mon, Jan 26 2015 | 2:45P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Setting up your home network can be a real hassle at times. You have the option of wireless signals, but that includes configurations as well as possible black-spots for the signal. Drilling holes through your walls might not be an option either, maybe because you rent and your landlord doesn’t want you to. So what option do you got left, you ask? Easy, use your existing power lines to transfer the signal. The Tenda AV1000 Gigabit Powerline Adapter is such a solution, and today I’m taking a look at the Starter kit.

     Tue, Jan 13 2015 | 4:05P | Networking | PermaLink

The build quality, price, performance and general usefulness of the USB 3.0 to Gigabit Ethernet Adapter + USB Hub is fantastic. While it will not be required for desktop applications; Laptop, Windows Tablet, Ultrabook and Chromebook users can gain a lot of extra connectivity without shelling out a lot of money, and that is a great big win."

     Mon, Jan 12 2015 | 6:28P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
D-Link is perhaps best known for their networking products, but they do have a line of connected home products to complement the routers and access points people may think of first. Today we will be looking at the DCH-S150 motion sensor and the DSP-W215 smart plug. In addition to these two items, they also offer a wireless camera to round out their connected home product line.

NewerTech Power2U AC/USB Wall Outlet Review @ Bigbruin.com
     Mon, Jan 12 2015 | 4:40P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
* Today we are going to take a look at something a bit different from the usual items found at Bigbruin.com, but it could make using all of those other items much more convenient. What we have is the Newertech Power2U AC/USB wall outlet, which will basically replace an existing wall outlet with not just a pair of 3-prong 120V receptacles, but also a pair of USB ports for charging your devices."

ASUS RT-AC87U and Netgear R7500 Nighthawk X4 review
     Thu, Jan 01 2015 | 6:18A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Quote: “With their RT-AC87U and R7500 Nighthawk X4, ASUS and Netgear are spearheading a new generation of routers. We have no complaints with regard to their performance, although we must admit that ASUS' offering is not exactly energy efficient. Clearly, both routers are very powerful devices, and between the two of them, their performance is nearly identical. That said, they hardly offer any added value over routers from the previous generation. After all, the most important new technology, Multi-user MIMO, is still missing in action. Furthermore, the fourth data stream that these devices offer is only relevant if you're willing to purchase yet another one of these routers from ASUS or Netgear. Other clients that support four streams do not yet exist, and history teaches us that the odds of such clients suddenly being mass-produced are very small indeed.”

Asus RT-AC87U 4×4 (Bridge Mode) Review
     Thu, Jan 01 2015 | 4:18A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We have reviewed many of the latest high performance 802.11AC capable routers in recent months. ASUS recently sent us not one, but two of their RT-AC87U routers to test performance in single and bridge mode. Bridge Mode allows a second RT AC87U to be utilised as a ‘receiver’ – theoretically holding onto maximum performance, especially as we have a shortage of high grade 4×4 receivers.

: Trendnet TPL-408E2K Powerline 500AV2 Adapter
     Tue, Dec 30 2014 | 10:18P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This hardware is very affordable and if you are having some challenges running a wireless network or you simply want wires, make sure you check out this kit as it comes in under $50. It tops the performance numbers at this point for any Powerline kit we've seen and we expect things to continue to get better. Even with extreme ranges, the performance was still very good...
