TP-LINK 300Mbps AV500 WiFi Powerline Extender Starter Kit Review @ Madshrimps
     Wed, Jan 15 2014 | 9:02A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The TL-WPA4220KIT comes pretty cheap and also provides wireless connectivity for maximizing the wireless range of the current network. Despite the fact that we get an advertised speed of 500Mbps, the LAN ports are capped at 100Mbps. We must also take in account that the speed may vary depending on the quality of the wiring and other factors."

logy DiskStation DS214 & DS214play
     Sat, Jan 04 2014 | 9:03A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Although the Synology DS214 and the DS214play are two very different products designed for different purposes, they provided similar performance. Surprisingly despite being built on entirely different platforms we ended up with almost identical results and what’s great about that is those results were very good.

NETGEAR R7000 Nighthawk Smart AC1900 Wi-Fi Router Review @MissingRemote
     Fri, Dec 27 2013 | 1:32P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Nothing can deliver the raw capability of Gigabit Ethernet when it comes to pushing large amounts of data around the home. Unfortunately, in many homes it just is not practical to pull Cat-6 through the walls, so other methods must be found to enable the demands of a fully functional media consumption network. Where many other low-installation-effort home networking technologies have failed, 802.11ACs 1300Mbps of theoretical bandwidth is tantalizing. With more than enough headroom to deliver stutter free streaming it holds tremendous promise, but whether the technology can really deliver was still open even after our first look. Today we have another chance to examine it however this time with NETGEARs $199 Dual-band AC1900 R7000 Nighthawk Smart Wi-Fi Router. The R7000 is particularly interesting not only because its dual-core 1GHz processor and USB 3.0 support represents the current state-of-the art in Wi-Fi appliances, but because the underlying Broadcom 4709 Communication Processor (which makes that possible) marks a shift from MIPS to ARM for this market segment. Of course that change is only meaningful if the R7000 can deliver the stability, feature set and performance demanded by the home media enthusiast. *"

Booq Viper Hardcase 7 Graphite Tablet Sleeve Review @ TestFreaks
     Wed, Dec 25 2013 | 9:39A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Im sure tablets will be high in popularity this year for gifts, so if youre going to buy your loved one a tablet you need to make sure you also get them a nice case for it. Today Ive got a quick review for you of the Booq Viper Hardcase 7 Graphite which is a cross between a tablet sleeve and a case I think. It features dual zippers and opens up like a book but has a space your tablet to slide in along with a few other pockets for anything else you might need to take with you. Booq makes excellent products and the Viper Hardcase is a great way to protect your tablet while on the go. "

     Tue, Dec 24 2013 | 1:32P | Networking | PermaLink

The X8 AC1750 router from Sitecom is concurrent dual band and supports the latest AC standard; this is the first router which has entered in our lab to feature both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 interfaces and all antennas are internal. The router can be paired with the new AC1200 WLA-7100 Wi-Fi adapter in order to achieve transfer speeds over 200Mbps."

ASUS RT-AC68U and Linksys EA6900 review
     Tue, Dec 24 2013 | 9:03A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Until recently, the fastest 802.11ac routers were labeled 'AC1750' or something along those lines. That refers to the combined theoretical bandwidth of the 2.4 GHz and the 5 GHz bands. On 2.4 GHz that is 450 Mbps and on 5 GHz that is 1.3 Gbps. The new routers have the same speed on the 5 GHz frequency, but on 2.4 GHz they're now capable of 600 Mbps. The ASUS RT-AC68U and the Linksys EA6900 we will look at today are the first two routers of that new generation.

EasyAcc Wi-Stor Wizard 4 in 1 Portable Device @ NikKTech
     Sat, Dec 21 2013 | 10:02A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Wireless connectivity is amongst the most popular technologies right now so it`s only natural to see it gain more ground over wired connectivity each day that goes by although currently we have to admit that it`s nowhere close to the second. However much like with most new technologies that matters very little so most companies out there focus in manufacturing devices that have something to do with Wi-Fi and the amongst the very last products to hit the market are the wireless streamers like the Kingston MobileLite Wireless or the RaidSonic ICY BOX IB-WRP201SD. Not only do such devices allow consumers to wirelessly share files onto Wi-Fi compatible devices but they can also act as wireless range extenders and in some cases even as portable batteries (power banks). Well it seems that EasyAcc things this is a market they can also do well in and so today we will be taking a look at their Wi-Stor Wizard 4-1 Wireless Storage."

Karma Wi-Fi Hotspot Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Wed, Dec 18 2013 | 8:59A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Cellular Internet is just about everywhere these days, but its contained within the devices that need it the most often: phones, tablets, computers. Theres also been a few generations of Wi-Fi hotspots, neat devices treasured by conference and convention go-ers and mobilebusinesspeople alike. One who fires up a Wi-Fi device at CES is likely to see scores of Wi-Fi access points. Most are secured and meant only for one or two users. A random passerby would rarely think to ask permission to use a strangers hotspot. Karma is looking to change that. Social Bandwidth, they call it. Karma provides the access point, you buy the bandwidth you need: no monthly bill, no contracts, no minimum usage. On top of that, when someone wants Internet, they can use your hotspot without affecting your bandwidth balance. They get their own! In fact, Karma gives you and them 100 MB whenever they sign into your hotspot and they get their own bandwidth to use. Sign up a friend using a referral link and get 500 MB instead."

ASUS USB-AC56 Wireless Adapter @ LanOC Reviews
     Tue, Dec 17 2013 | 4:37P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Recently we have done a few reviews on the emerging wireless AC technology but up until now those reviews have been limited to routers which merely allow access. Today we take a look at what may be one of the fastest ways to utilize your new wireless AC connection. The USB-AC56 from Asus is a dual-band network adapter meant to allow you to tap into the 5MHz band and only requires the use of a single USB3 connection. Will the AC56 prove to be your quickest solution to the fastest wireless speeds available or will it be better to search for other options? Well find out."

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.
