450mbps routers reviewed: 14 of the fastest models
     Tue, May 29 2012 | 4:02P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While the Consumer Electronics Show in January of this year featured demonstrations of the next generation 802.11ac technology, we are still in the midst of a transition within the current 802.11n standard. After the 300 Mbps and 150 Mbps versions, manufacturers are now promoting '450N' models which promise a theoretical throughput of 450 Mbps. Obviously there is an element of marketing involved here, but even so it will be interesting to see how these product perform when compared to their elder 300N brethren. In order to get a good overview, we tried to get all currently available 450 Mbps routers into our lab to put these through our usual rigorous tests.

Icron USB Ranger 2211 Range Extender @ Benchmark Reviews
     Mon, May 28 2012 | 11:49P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Everything from Rocket Launchers to Dancing Clowns are available as a USB peripheral these days. Most of us keep our USB devices within arm`s length, but there are times where a little more distance is desirable. That`s the case for the average consumer; the commercial or industrial user has a tougher life. They have Rocket Launchers and Dancing Clowns too, but they`re the full-sized versions. You can bet the computers which control them are located more than 5 meters away. That`s the reason for today`s article; what to do when your USB device is 300 feet away from your PC? You find a device like the Icron USB Ranger 2211, and a big spool of Cat 5 Ethernet cable, and you hook it up, no problem! Just so you can be sure that there won`t be any problems, Benchmark Reviews put the latest USB extender from Icron Technologies on the test bench. We also look under the hood, and show you the technology that`s inside."

TP-LINK TL-WR700N 150Mbps Wireless N Mini Pocket Router Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Sat, May 26 2012 | 11:01A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Last year we reviewed a couple TP-LINK products and were extremely impressed with them. TP-LINKs latest portable router is the TL-WR700N 150Mbps Wireless N Mini Pocket Router. Its max wireless speed is rated a bit lower than standard routers, but its feature-set doesnt suffer. The TL-WR700N supports multiple modes including AP, Repeater, Client, Bridge, and can function as a basic router. Has TP-LINK tried to pack too much into a small device? Or will they blow us away again? Check out the full review to find out."

ASUS RT-N66U review: Lightning-fast 450mbps router
     Fri, May 18 2012 | 4:00P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ASUS RT-N66U is one of the best routers we have ever tested in our lab, if not the best. In terms of wireless performance this router leaves its competition in the dust. Moreover, the RT-N66U has a huge number of features such as the option to download files via Usenet and bittorrent, the support for 3G sticks and the ability to perform the initial configuration from a mobile device. The average price of £149 certainly isn't low, but you get a lot of bang for your buck.

Cisco Linksys E4200 V2 review: 450 mbps on both bands
     Tue, May 15 2012 | 12:03P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Linksys E4200 still is an excellent router. However, it was released more than a year ago (when it was ahead of its time in some respects), but things have changed somewhat since then. As you will be able to read in our upcoming round-up of 14 450mbps routers, there are a number of routers out there that can run in 450mbps mode on both frequencies. The E4200 only supports this on 5 GHz. This is not a huge deal, since the speed gain of 450mbps versus 300mbps mode on 2.4 GHz is not that significant anyway. Moreover, it's not all about the wireless chip when it comes to the wireless speeds a router can achieve. In any case, Cisco found it necessary to introduce a successor, indicated by the addition of V2 behind the model number. Nothing was changed on the exterior of the router, so it still fits perfectly within the new design that was started with the original E4200. It's a different story with the interior though, which we'll see in the review. We also need to mention that the price will stay the same, as the V2 replaces the original E4200, which will gradually be phased out, or perhaps has been phased out already. This obviously depends on the stock shops have.

Airlive N.Plug One Touch Wireless Repeater Review
     Mon, Apr 23 2012 | 4:05P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Although I`ve always preferred wired connections over wireless ones (mainly because of security issues) i can`t deny that i have used Wi-Fi wireless points numerous times while on the go with my smartphone mostly. However regardless of how much practical wireless networks are they do have certain drawbacks and so aside the already mentioned security ones which can prove quite bad for people working with sensitive data signal range and quality are also two issues that can`t really be ignored. Many manufacturers have tried to partially correct that issue by adding more antennas onto their wireless modem/routers and there have also been quite a few improvements in wireless standards during the past decade (from 802.11a, 802.11b, 802.11g, to the latest 802.11n) but unfortunately signal range is still an important issue. Repeaters (also known as extenders) like the N.Plug One Touch Wireless Repeater by Airlive which we have here with us today have been around for many years and aim to boost the signal strength (range) of any Wi-Fi enabled modem/router without much effort."

Toshiba Excite 10 LE Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Sat, Apr 21 2012 | 12:41A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Toshiba Excite 10 LE comes into a crowded tablet market where everyone wants to take a bite out of the Apple iPad. Toshiba went with making this Android 3.0-powered tablet both lightweight and razor-thin, but the design isn`t all that counts. While we liked some aspects of the Excite tablet, it is definitely lacking in several ways."

IOGEAR GUWIP204 Wireless USB Sharing Station Review @Missingremote
     Sun, Apr 01 2012 | 1:47A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Over the past year we?ve reviewed a number of different wireless products that help enhance unique home theater environments, such as wireless HDMIstreamers and Bluetooth speakers. For my living situation, the need to extend USB over a wireless network became relevant, and as such, I obtained the GUWIP204 4-Port Wireless USB Sharing Station from IOGEAR to achieve this objective. Things were not perfect however, as we attempted to use this product unconventionally. *"

ASUS EA-N66U Wireless-N450 Ethernet Adapter @ Benchmark Reviews
     Thu, Mar 29 2012 | 9:28A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Devout followers of the technology industry may have seen a sneak preview of ASUS` latest dabble in networking hardware back in January when it was announced at CES 2012. Maybe you only read an information starved press release after the event, either way there hasn`t been much information regarding the ASUS EA-N66 3-in-1 Dual Band Wireless N450 Ethernet Adapter until now. Benchmark Reviews recently reviewed the ASUS RT-N66U Dual Band Wireless N900 Router and USB-N53 Dual-Band Wireless N300 USB Adapter, and now the EA-N66 3-in-1 Ethernet adapter completes the trio. There are a few Wi-Fi to Ethernet bridges available on the market as well as dedicated Wi-Fi repeaters and Access Points, but never before have all three functions been combined into one device, and never has a piece of networking hardware ever looked so interesting. Speed is the name of the game here, the EA-N66 3-in-1 Dual Band Wireless N Ethernet Adapter has a 10/100/1000 Base-T compliant RJ45 interface and can operate on 2.4GHz and 5GHz wireless N frequencies at speeds up to 450Mb/s."

Linksys PLEK400 Powerline Networking Kit - BCCHardware
     Thu, Mar 15 2012 | 8:56A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As I referred to previously, installation of the Linksys PLEK400 Powerline Networking kit is a snap. It comes pre-configured and synchronized to each other so that all you have to do is plug each of them into the wall and then plug the network cables into your devices. In order to connect to your network, you`ll need to plug one into your router or switch and the other one into your device. . ."

ASUS RT-N66U Wireless-N900 Gigabit Router @ Benchmark Reviews
     Wed, Mar 14 2012 | 4:43P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Building on the success of the RT-N56 Dual Band WiFi router, ASUS has been hard at work trying to create the next `next-best` wireless router. Today, Benchmark Reviews brings you the ASUS RT-N66U Dual Band Wireless-N900 Gigabit Router. As you will see in the images that follow, the ASUS RT-N66U certainly looks the part and is different in that way from 99% of routers on offer today. The RT-N66U has three high power external antenna to allow simultaneous 2.4GHz and 5GHz signals to run at up to 450Mb/s concurrently, this allows you to stream HD content to your media devices (5GHz) while you enjoy uninterrupted wireless internet (2.4GHz). On the box ASUS claim that the RT-N66U has Leading giga-level throughput over 900Mb/s but as with most claims this doesn`t always come true, our testing threw out some good numbers but nowhere near ASUS` claims. The ASUS RT-N66U has two built in USB 2.0 ports that allow you to share printers and USB storage over LAN and WAN, and also allows you to share a 3G/4G internet connection."
