Silverstone ES02-USB 2.4GHz Wireless PC Remote Control Kit Review
     Wed, Apr 12 2017 | 9:02A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
SilverStone might be well known mostly as a case manufacturer, but their product line extends to smaller items as well, offering solutions that might be often overlooked by other companies. The Silverstone ES02-USB for example, is a 2.4GHz PC remote control kit that allows users to turn their PC on or off and even reset it from a few meters …

Zooz ZEN06 Z-Wave Plus Smart Plug
     Thu, Apr 06 2017 | 6:38P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Zooz ZEN06 Z-Wave Plus Smart Plug is easy to setup, works well, looks cool, and offers a few features you might not find in other smart plugs. With the right Z-Wave controller, you will not only get the ability to toggle the plugged in device on/off, but you will also get feedback on the power being consumed from within the app. On top of that, the colors in the LED ring around the outlet provide a novel way to get a general idea of how much power your device is drawing.

Show Home 2-Channel Z-Wave Smart Home Plug
     Tue, Apr 04 2017 | 9:03A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Show Home 2-Channel Z-Wave smart home plug is a great option for those looking to include some Z-wave controllable outlets in their home. This one stands out compared to many options on the market since it does not require the replacement of an existing in-wall outlet and it provides you with two independently controllable outlets in one device. You could therefore install it in a permanent location in your home, but you could also move it around as required.

Netgear Orbi
     Fri, Mar 31 2017 | 4:00P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We’ve been using the Orbi for two months now, replacing a 2.4Ghz Draytek router + access point combo that worked well for several years. The previous setup had good range, but speeds were very limiting once you approached difficult to reach parts of the house. The reason we upgraded to Orbi was to avoid wiring in an Ethernet cable between the ground floor and 2nd floor of our house. The Orbi backhaul has a theoretical maximum throughput of 1733 Mbps, and although this won’t be reached, it could at least go some way toward to competing with a hard wired 1000Mbps connection (and it’s much, much easier to install)."

Tenda AC9 AC1200 Dual-Band Wireless Router Review

Linksys WRT3200ACM AC3200 MU-MIMO Gigabit WiFi Router Review
     Wed, Mar 22 2017 | 1:03P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Linksys has had a lot of success with their WRT series, and that can’t come as a surprise to anyone. They look great, are packed with features, and perform great too. Today I have the pleasure to take a closer look at the newest family member in the WRT series, the WRT3200ACM. Linksys’ WRT3200ACM is, as the name suggests, an AC3200 class router which means that it can deliver up to N600 speeds on the 2.4GHz band and up to AC2600 on the 5GHz band. The reason why it is so fast on the 5GHz band is that it uses the Tri-Stream 160 technology. The Tri-Stream 160 effectively doubles the bandwidth of the 5 GHz band through the use of three 160MHz channels. It is also Dynamic frequency selection (DFS) certified from the FCC which not only allows operation at 160MHz, it also triples the channels available at 80MHz. That allows your router to operate in the clearest airspace and where other routers aren’t allowed.

Posted by: STAFF
The Skyroam Hotspot provides unlimited global WiFi… available in just about any country you can think of and for only $8 per day regardless of where you go. With instant coverage in over 100 countries on just about every continent, this device just may be unparalleled. For each 24 hour period of use, you purchase a Day Pass at $8. You can share the hotspot amongst 5 devices, there is no SIM card necessary and the connection will reach 3G/4G data connection (HSPA+ technology). Did I mention that data is unlimited?

Tenda AC6 AC1200 Smart Dual-Band Wireless Router
     Thu, Mar 16 2017 | 5:45P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Tenda AC6 offers good range and throughput, and would make for a decent choice for people that didn't rely on wired connections for transferring files. Features like the high powered amplifiers, four large external antennas, and beam forming technology will help carry the signal throughout a typical house with plenty of bandwidth for a typical family. The 100Mbps wired ports are a downer since they would limit traffic on the LAN and WAN.

Tenda PH3 AV1000 Gigabit Powerline Networking Kit
     Mon, Mar 13 2017 | 3:05P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In addition to the three LED indicators which show power, LAN and Powerline status, there is a GB Ethernet port and a "Pair" button on the front and bottom of these units. They are that simple and easy to use and setup. The kit comes synchronized and all I had to do was plug them in. If for some reason, you don't get a "Powerline" LED indicator, simply press the pair button on each of the units and you'll soon be connected. It is really that easy...

Anonabox FAWKES Tor Router
     Sun, Feb 26 2017 | 9:00A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”As we saw with the Pro, the TOR performance is meager, but this is the design of TOR. TOR hops around the world to "wrap" your data in, hence the name The Onion Router. Because your hops and exit nodes are spread all over the world, your traffic is bouncing around all over the place and this will cause latency. TOR is not designed to stream media over or torrent your favorite files; in fact TOR recommends not using it for torrent downloading, which can be illegal anyway and we do not condone that. What TOR is good for is sending your private emails, downloading confidential documents, etc., that you do not want public eyes viewing. Take, for instance, if you want to check your bank account and send some emails at Starbucks while sipping a latte, then the Anonabox FAWKES with TOR will allow you to do so without having to worry about me in the corner with a packet sniffer and decrypting your logins.”
