Belkin settles wireless class action suit

Belkin has settled a class action lawsuit that claimed some of the company's wireless LAN products did not meet advertised speed and range claims.

The lawsuit (Shannahoff v. Belkin Corporation) claimed that Belkin made and sold select models of its wireless LAN products that did not achieve advertised transmission rates and connectivity range under alleged “real-world” operating conditions.

The 37 products covered in the settlement include Belkin's 802.11g, "Pre-N", and Wireless G Plus MIMO products. Belkin's "N1" draft 11n products are not included in the suit or settlement.

Belkin enters SMB Network Monitoring Biz

Belkin Cable Free USB: Slow, Expensive, Cutting Edge Technology

Belkin Cable Free USB HuUltrawideband technology has finally arrived. But Belkin's Cable Free USB Hub shows it's not yet ready for prime time.

Belkin prepping certified wireless USB hub

With Freescale gone from the UltraWideBand market, Belkin is moving on to fully join the ranks of "Certified Wireless USB" vendors. Belkin showed a new version of wireless USB hub and dongle at last week's Consumer Electronics show.

The Wireless USB Hub with Wireless USB Adapter uses certified wireless USB technology from WiQuest, instead of the Wisair chipset used in its "Cable-Free USB Hub" which is just starting to become widely available. The datasheet for the product specs throughput at "up to 80Mbps of real throughput" and says it will interoperate with other certified wireless USB devices.

The new product is slated to be available in May at $199.99 suggested list.

Belkin's Wi-Fi Phone for Skype Breaks Out of the Pack

Belkin's Wi-Fi Phone for Skype Breaks Out of the PackOur reviews of the SMC and Netgear versions of this phone have shown them to be less than impressive. But Tim Higgins found that Belkin's version is the one to get.

Belkin adds Boingo support to Wi-Fi Skype phone

Belkin today announced that it has added support for using its Wi-Fi Phone for Skype with Boingo Wireless hot spots. This makes Belkin the first company to address one of the weaknesses of the current crop of Wi-Fi Skype phones; the inability to be used with wireless hot spots that require browser-based authentication.

A Belkin spokesperson said that the authentication will be done using Boingo's embedded Wi-Fi toolkit, which is basically a configuration file that provides the credentials to authenticate to each Boingo hotspot type. Belkin also said that a firmware upgrade for current Wi-Fi Phone users will be available "by mid December" for download from Belkin's website.

Belkin Wi-Fi Phone users can sign up for a Boingo Mobile Unlimited account, which gives them unlimited access to Boingo hot spots, for only $7.95 per month.

Belkin says mid-December for UWB USB hub shipment

Belkin N1 Wireless Router: Neighbor-Friendly but Flawed Draft 11n

Belkin N1Tim Higgins finds Belkin's Atheros-based entry into the draft 11n WLAN sweepstakes takes a step forward, but a few backward, too.

MIMO Router Face-Off

About a year ago we looked at three products representing three technologies that claimed to deliver higher wireless speed and extended range. This time it's eight MIMO and one non-MIMO product that Tim Higgins put to the test, with surprising results.

Do Extended-range WLAN technologies deliver?

Longer range and faster speed are the watchwords for wireless LAN product manufacturers and the criteria by which many of us choose which products to buy. We take a look at three "extended range" WLAN technologies - Atheros' Super G / XR, Airgo Networks' True MIMO and Parker Vision's D2D - to see if they deliver as promised.
