Actiontec PWR500 - 500Mbps Powerline Network Adapter Kit Review @MissingRemote
     Wed, Aug 29 2012 | 11:52A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Powerline networking has a reputation for promising capable hardwired networking solutions, but historically often fell short when it came to delivery. Having tried a few iterations of the alternative-to-Ethernet over power wires in the past, in my personal experience this reputation has also proved well deserved. Of course with each new generation, the technology evolves and is therefore worth another look. To achieve that goal, Actiontec provided their newest Powerline Network Adapter kit, the PWR500. Supporting up to 500Mbps between nodes, and exposing 100Mbps Ethernet to devices, it should be more than a match for even the most demanding file streaming requirements. Combining this with a price of around $50 for two adapters, it could be the perfect way to extend your media to those hard to reach places around your house or apartment. *"

Asus N56VZ-DS71 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Mon, Aug 20 2012 | 9:14A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Asus looked to add to the multimedia line of laptops with the N56VZ-DS71. It has a beautiful 1080p 15.6-inch display, great audio quality and speedy performance. While it does lack in battery life, it makes up for it in its design and set of multimedia features."

Seagate Satellite Mobile Wireless Storage Device @ Techreaction.net
     Fri, Aug 17 2012 | 2:50P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Showing up today at the office is a product that really excites us! Seagate has sent their Satellite 500GB mobile wireless storage device. It is more than just a storage device, it is made to stream media to multiple devices, up to 8 over WiFi or 3 HD movies at once. With one of the very few devices with this capability, Seagate is on the leading edge with their Satellite. Being able to stream for about 7 hours and a standby time of up to 25 hours, you will get plenty of use out of every charge. Now, how about really putting the Satellite through the paces and see how well it does So sit back, relax and enjoy the future of external hard drives."

How do you organize the cables and networking equipment from your computer? @ Hardware Secrets
     Tue, Aug 14 2012 | 1:09P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I was really annoyed with the amount of cables and networking equipment lyingon the floor: a modem for the computer, another modem for the telephone, a router, a Gigabit Ethernet switch, and their power supplies. Finally, I decided to organize things around here. See the end result in the picture below. I installed everything on the inner panel of my desk. At least now I can vacuum the floor. How about you? Do you leave everything on the floor collecting dust, or do you organize it in any way?"

Buffalo Air Station AC1300 N900 802.11ac Wireless Router Review @ Legit Reviews
     Sun, Aug 12 2012 | 10:05A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Let me just cut to the chase and tell you that the Buffalo WZR-D1800H Air Station is by far the fastest router I have ever seen. Actually, all the credit goes to the brand new wireless standard, 802.11ac that is working over the 5Ghz bandwidth. It was pretty fun to experience these speeds for this review and it actually translated well when we connected it to our home network..."

TRENDnet TPL-402E2K 500Mbps Powerline
     Mon, Aug 06 2012 | 9:00A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Sometimes when you don't use a specific product in your daily life you can fail to see its importance and in a way up until recently i did exactly that in regard to Powerline network adapters since i wasn't aware of just how many people out there actually use them to fill the gap between normal wired and wireless connections. That's also the reason as to why for the past couple of months I’ve been trying to test as many Powerline adapter sets as i can get my hands on so everyone who uses such devices can know exactly what each of those solutions has to offer. So following the quite good PL-550D 500Mbit/s Powerline adapter set by RaidSonic we had the chance to test roughly 2 weeks ago today we will be testing the latest TPL-402E2K 500Mbps Powerline AV Adapter Kit by TRENDnet.

QNAP TS-419P II Turbo NAS
     Fri, Aug 03 2012 | 3:47P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The inclusion of USB 3.0 in the QNAP TS-419P II is actually quite surprising as early samples did not include this technology and instead featured 2.0 support exclusively. Many early reviews were quick to point this out as a disadvantage of this device and it seems QNAP took notice and quickly made an update before hitting mass production.

TP-LINK TL-SF1008P 8-port 10/100Mbps Desktop PoE switch Review
     Thu, Aug 02 2012 | 11:59A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Roughly two weeks ago we reviewed an 8 port 10/100Mbps PoE switch by TRENDnet, the TPE-S44 which is basically the ideal solution for people who want a cost-effective switch with the ability to power their IP Cameras via power over Ethernet. Now although there aren`t that many people out there who actually care about such products (or at least i didn`t think so) i was surprised to receive quite a few emails by many of you asking for more similar reviews and so naturally i started searching for PoE compatible switches that wouldn`t empty your wallet. The first of those is the TL-SF1008P 8-port 10/100Mbps Desktop PoE switch by TP-Link."

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.

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?

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.

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.
