We have seen the future of high speed wireless and it's not all bright. Tim Higgins drills down deep into what makes the Netgear RangeMax 240 Wireless Router tick and finds some things that don't bode well for current owners of 802.11b/g gear.
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.
ZyXEL's G-2000 Plus lets you implement WPA Enterprise without the hassle of setting up a RADIUS server. But Jim Hubbard found its routing performance could be a problem for those with higher-speed Internet connections
Push-button wireless security setup holds the promise of enabling mere mortals to quickly and easily lock down their wireless LANs. We examine two technologies with similar goals and find them more alike than different.
Linksys' WRT54G Wireless-G Broadband Router seems to have taken the lead over its sibling the WAP54G Access Point. Although it's priced about the same, it has a key difference that you should know about before you buy. Read our review to make an informed purchase!
NETGEAR's RangeMax wireless products hope to bring MIMO to the masses with promises of longer reach at higher speeds, but at prices perhaps more tempting to budget-conscious networkers. Tim Higgins takes an in-depth look at this new MIMO contender and finds a marriage of technologies that still have some issues to work out.
You'll soon be seeing gigabit Ethernet and Quality of Service features appear in many consumer routers. However, D-Link has both today in a product that's pitched at gamers, but useful to a much broader audience. Tim Higgins takes an in-depth look at the DGL-4300.
Last month Linksys decided to take the plunge into the current MIMO WLAN fad with its SRX product line based on Airgo Networks' True MIMO chipset. Tim Higgins digs deep into this technology's performance claims so that you can decide for yourself whether it's worth a very premium price.
You might be tempted to think that Linksys' WET54GS5 Wireless-G Ethernet Bridge with 5-port switch is just a WET54G with a slightly-overpriced 10/100 switch built in... but you'd be wrong. There's much, much more to this first-in-category product, including ways to make bandwidth hogs behave!
