Amped Wireless REC15A 802.11ac Wi-Fi Range Extender Review @ Legit Reviews
     Tue, May 20 2014 | 8:14A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With so many Wireless devices in populating the home these days there is a growing need to guarantee Wi-Fi coverage.  For those that have invested in Wi-Fi-AC routers for their wireless computers, games, and multimedia devices, the last thing they want is to run out of useful signal.  For 802.11ac devices this is especially problematic.  Even though the 5GHz AC-band gives users the fast data throughput, it also has a range that is much more limited when compared to the 2.4GHz band. What Amped Wireless attempts to deliver with the REC15A is a way that users can extend the range of their router to all areas of the house and grounds. This is done by repeating and amplifying the 5GHz 802.11ac signal..."

So we have compiled another post of some of the most insane network messes ever! Enjoy!"

Asus PCE-AC68 802.11ac Dual-Band PCI Express
     Sun, May 11 2014 | 9:01A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Following on from my review on Asus’ top performing wireless AC router, the RT-AC68U that we looked at not too long ago, it is only worth us taking a closer look at what makes this next generation wireless adaptor tick. Unless your laptop or desktop system has built-in wireless, there is one of two main options out there for you to choose from in order to add the freedom to your system that is wireless networking. The first of these methods is to get a USB based device which is a simple device with very little setup required – literally plug it in, install the driver and you’re away. In addition a USB adaptor is compatible with both notebook and desktop systems and they are not overly expensive either. Like most things though there is a downside to going down the USB path; whilst they are able to deliver some highly respectable levels of performance, the antenna is either very small, or internal to the adaptor and therefore signal strength can be an issue.

Synology DiskStation DS414j NAS Review
     Wed, Apr 30 2014 | 4:02P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Since they entered the NAS marketplace a few years back Synology have been continually evolving their products. The majority of their products get a yearly refresh for enhanced performance and features and between hardware launches their DiskStation Manager OS has continued to receive significant new revisions. Today we take a look at the latest revision of each, the DS414j (their first j model with dual core CPU + FPU and USB 3.0) with DSM 5.0."

Synology DiskStation DS414j
     Tue, Apr 29 2014 | 4:02P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Given the fact that we would have picked the Synology DS413j over any other budget 4-bay NAS available right now, it’s a safe bet that the DS414j is our new favourite 4-bay budget NAS. On that note we are also very impressed with how well the MindSpeed Comcerto 2000 dual-core 1.2GHz processor performed given it features no form of cooling and operates at such a low frequency.

Linksys EA6900 AC1900 802.11ac Dual- Band Wireless Router Review
     Wed, Apr 23 2014 | 1:38P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to home networking there are a number of big names that come to mind and fortunately I have been able to put a number of products from these names to the test, however there has been one particular brand that I have been keen to get in touch with and establish a line of communications – namely Linksys. Believe it or not it is not always as simple as firing an email at someone and instantly getting products sent back in return as some may believe. After a few months of patiently waiting and after having a meeting with a few representatives from Linksys at this years CES in Las Vegas, I can finally say that I’m glad to have Linksys onboard and I look forward to having a good sniff through the stack of products that they have to offer. Link some of the other big names in the consumer networking market – Netgear and TP-Link being just a couple of the other big names, Linksys have a massive following and also have a big history to back a successful line of products. After being formed in 1998, Linksys was bought out by Cisco Systems in 2003 and in the next ten years that followed, their name became synonymous with the WRT line of networking products. To put it in a simple way, if you was into your home networking, then Linksys’ WRT54G was the way to go – the OpenWRT project which was founded to develop the hacked router caused the popularity to explode to a new level. On a personal Level I have owned a number of Linksys routers over the years, in particular the WRT54g, WRT54Gs and the ADSL2+MUE modem amongst others. The power and flexibility that was on offer set these products head and shoulders above all else. In the more recent years, Linksys went under a second acquisition as Belkin then purchased the company in the early stages of the last year, ready to take them to the next level. Today Linksys is branded under its own name with the enthusiast and power user at the heart of their design, whilst Belkin branded items target the home and entry-level user.
