Buffalo WHR-G300N V2 + WLI-UC-G450 @ Rbmods
     Tue, Jul 31 2012 | 9:05A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Wireless networks have progressed very fast in the past few years. Remember the days when WLAN peaked at 11mbps speeds? Today we will take a look at two WLAN products from Buffalotech. First there is the access point / router called WHR-G300N V2 which peaks at 300mbps speeds and then a USB adapter called WLI-UC-G450 which peaks at 450mbps. Read the whole review to find out more!"

Synology DiskStation DS712+ Review @ TestFreaks
     Mon, Jul 30 2012 | 12:41P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For todays review we will check out Synologys top of the line two bay network attached storage solution the DiskStation DS712+. This machine features dual Gigabit LAN which provides read speeds of up to180.91MB/sec and writes at 105.59MB/sec when using Link Aggregation under RAID 0 configuration. This box uses a low power Intel Atom processor which makes the machine both powerful in its class and energy efficient; you can easily replace a PC sized server with a Synology NAS Server running on your home or work network.

First Two Weeks with an ASUS Transformer Tablet @ Techgage
     Fri, Jul 27 2012 | 1:16A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I`m proud to say that I`m no longer a tablet virgin, so what better way to celebrate than to tell everyone about how magical the experience can be? Equipped with an ASUS Transformer Prime, I`ve customized, downloaded, read, played, tweaked, watched and even rooted, finally reaching the obvious fact: tablets are cool."

Synology DiskStation DS112+, DS112, DS112j
     Mon, Jul 23 2012 | 9:02A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Starting with the entry-level Synology DiskStation DS112j which can be had for as little as $150 in diskless form, we were impressed with the performance of this device. Despite being equipped with just a single drive we saw strong performance in our download tests, delivering similar performance to the more expensive DS112 and QNAP TS-119P II.

Netgear R6300 802.11ac router review
     Sat, Jul 21 2012 | 12:02P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Netgear R6300 is the first 802.11ac router we are reviewing. As the first router of a new generation, the Netgear R6300 can definitely be called a success. Granted, 1.3 Gbps is still quite a way away, but there are clear performance gains compared to 802.11n. Speeds of up to 500 Mbps are possible with this router, and also at longer distances the 802.11ac outperforms 802.11n comfortably.

TRENDnet TPE-S44 8 Port 10/100Mbps PoE Switch Review
     Sat, Jul 21 2012 | 9:07A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We live in dangerous times, i am sure that no one can really deny that so it goes without saying that we need to take extra steps to ensure the safety of both our loved ones and everything we own. This is partially as to why Ive been testing various security devices during the past 5 years including IP cameras and motion sensors (the 2nd is more of a hobby to me). However setting up a security grid made out of several IP cameras around your house and/or your office is a lot more complicated than many seem to think and so today we are going to see how an 8-port 10/100Mbps PoE Switch like the TPE-PS44 by TRENDnet can aid you with that."

TP-Link TL-WDR4300 N750 Dual-Band Wireless Router Review @ Legit Reviews
     Fri, Jul 20 2012 | 11:06A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The wireless performance of the TP-Link TL-WDR4300 N750 router turned out to be a pleasant surprise. Even though the router is less than half the cost of some of the other routers we have tested, there is no lacking of performance whatsoever. Many of you may not like the look of a router with external antennas (we sure didn`t), but there is no doubt that the TP-Link N750 router utilizes this design well..."

Netgear R6300 802.11ac router review: gigabit via Wi-Fi?
     Sat, Jul 14 2012 | 12:01P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As the first router of a new generation, the Netgear R6300 can definitely be called a success. Granted, 1.3 gbps is still quite a way away, but there are clear performance gains compared to 802.11n. Speeds of up to 500 mbps are possible with this router, and also at longer distances the 802.11ac outperforms 802.11n comfortably. You should bear in mind that 5 GHz still is 5 GHz, and a concrete wall will always be a concrete wall, meaning that 802.11ac doesn't necessarily improve the maximum range of the signal. 802.11ac is most effective on 5 GHz and at relatively short distances, but with a much higher bandwidth than the 802.11n, also at longer ranges.

5G Wi-Fi: The 5th generation of Wi-Fi is here
     Thu, Jul 12 2012 | 2:58P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The first generation Wi-Fi launched 15 years ago brought forth wireless LAN (WLAN) applications, and the newer Wi-Fi standards that ensued have been providing faster transmission to notebooks, smartphones, and tablets. Over the past few years, Wi-Fi has even become available to consumer electronics and peripherals. In terms of the emerging home applications, however, Wi-Fi 802.11g and 802.11n in the existing 2.4GHz band can no longer meet the requirement for HD streaming video transmission. As a result, 5G Wi-Fi - faster than 1 Gbps - is forthcoming."

"From 2007 to 2011, the 4th-generation Wi-Fi 802.11n raised the limit to 600Mbps (4 channels). The current limit is 450Mbps (3 channels). The 5G Wi-Fi 802.11ac launched in 2012 enables single-channel transmission at 450Mbps, three times of 150Mbps of 802.11n. At present, 802.11ac supports four MIMO channels (1.8Gbps) and will support up to eight MIMO channels. Therefore, the mainstream design of three transreceiver antennas for MIMO may reach 1.35Gbps. 5G Wi-Fi 802.11ac is also compatible with 802.11n (2.4GHz/5Ghz)."

Edimax EW-7438RPn N300 Universal Wi-Fi Extender Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Thu, Jul 12 2012 | 9:52A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It always seems that no matter what improvements are made to wireless access point technology, there is always that one spot in your living or office space that has lackluster Wi-Fi reception. No matter what you do, youre just outside the bubble, and the signal drops constantly or the throughput is so slow that you might as well be back on a 56 kbps modem. Wi-Fi extenders such as this Edimax EW-7438RPn N300 Universal Wi-Fi Extender aim to fix that by cheaply augmenting the wireless network, expanding coverage and providing better reception in areas that sorely need it. Read on for the review."

QPAD 5K LE Review
     Sat, Jul 07 2012 | 9:00A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The 5K L.E, as the name suggests is a limited edition version of the 5K. The big selling point of the 5k L.E is the next generation gaming-grade laser sensor hailing from the halls of Avago - the A9800. The new laser allows a ridiculously high DPI of 8200 CPI capable of delivering a sample rate of 12000 fps. Not the highest we have sampled I grant you. The SteelSeries Sensei delivered an effective 11400 CPI however this CPI was achieved by the on-board ARM processor meaning the Sensei's physical limit was in fact 5700 CPI. The QPAD 5K L.E betters this and hits a massive 8200 CPI without the need for additional processing. So while the QPAD has the highest physical CPI, the Sensei the highest theoretical CPI, the 5K L.E can hit it's CPI without degradation of accuracy and precision.

Netgear WNDR4500 N900 Wireless Router Review @ Legit Reviews
     Fri, Jul 06 2012 | 12:20P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Our experience with the Netgear N900 router is that it handles complex traffic very nicely and is really transparent on your network. We never had any issues at all with trying to stream movies or music. This included 1080p movie files as well as FLAC and other lossless music files. After we tried to overload the network we did notice that WMM does make a difference in your connection speed so if there is one recommendation we can give to users out there, it is to check your routers firmware and enable WMM. Many manufacturers will try and use the functionality of WMM or QoS and market these tools as unique to their own brand, but you should know and recognize that many routers and most newer WiFi adapters support this function already. However, most people dont know that they need to actually turn it on..."

We all love our NAS. If you don't have one yet, you will love your NAS. Sometimes picking the right one for you may be difficult. Really, it all boils down to what you need. In the last showdown, we matched QNAP vs Drobo, in this NAS Showdown we are going to pit QNAP against Thecus in a cage match to help you determine who deserves your money.

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
