Powerline networking has its use and although it is nowhere nearly as popular as the almost ubiquitous Wi-Fi standard when it comes to networking there are times when it's the only option to get a network connection in your home. LevelOne has announced a clever solution that helps bridge the two technologies, something that should
Software screenshots are generally not that exciting, but we've gotten our hands on a slide that unveils a lot of upcoming features that will make an appearance in Intel's upcoming Wi-Fi utility called My WiFi Dashboard which is finally getting some Wi-Fi Direct support. The significant thing here is that it allows you to connect
Earlier this month, we did a preview piece of the RT-N66U Dual Band Gigabit Router from ASUS. Back then we covered the physical aspects of the router. Now, It’s time we put it to the test and see how well it performs.
Intel has announced the acquisition of QLogic's InfiniBand networking business for $125 million, a move that will help it realise its goal of ExaFLOP supercomputers.
Brookstone have just introduced something that looks like its come straight from the creative labs of those gadget minded gurus, MI6. Specialising in a vast range of lifestyle products available directly from their online catalog, the company has just started listing some new High-Tech Cufflinks which provide both a WiFi HotSpot as well as 2GBs
You've most likely already read our preview of Asus' just launched RT-N66U router, at least if you're the least bit interested in wireless networking or are planning on getting a new router. Until 802.11ac devices start appearing later this year, dual band 450Mbps 802.11n Wi-Fi will be as fast as you can get and during
Last week we wrote about Intel's plans for its WiDi technology and one of the new additions this year will be support for Wi-Fi Display, although we didn't know much about it at the time. Now some additional details have emerged at CES and as we suspected, Wi-Fi Display is a standard by the Wi-Fi
To date the most prominent company when it comes to Wi-Fi enabled SD cards has been Eye-Fi, especially as the company has managed to combined Wi-Fi and storage, although Toshiba did launch a competing product back in September. Now the Wi-Fi Association has finally decided that it's time to standardise things and somehow still managed
Two months ago, we previewed an engineering sample of the much anticipated RT-N66U Dual Band Gigabit Router from ASUS which was first spotted at COMPUTEX 2011. After going through some hardware and software changes, we finally have the final version in our labs to be stripped bare again, and it is expected to hit local
It's already been five years since 802.11n arrived, although back then in its draft standard and things have progressed slowly since then, although some 450Mbps hardware started to show up last year. This year looks set to be the launch for the 802.11ac standard, also known as 5G WiFi which promises Gigabit speeds, better coverage,
It's hard not to get a bit frustrated with Intel and its many proprietary technologies, although at least a few things seems to be changing slowly but surely when it comes to WiDi, Intel's video streaming technology over Wi-Fi. We've managed to dig up a fair bit of news as to what to expect in
The Wi-Fi Alliance has announced new interoperability guidelines for Wi-Fi Direct and DLNA which should make it easier to connect DLNA enabled Wi-Fi devices for media streaming. Currently Wi-Fi Direct can be somewhat convoluted to use depending on your devices, but hopefully this will help simplify things when it comes to media streaming.
Gigabyte has already had leaks with regards to some of the features of its upcoming X79 motherboards and today we have an exclusive leak of our own, Gigabyte is going to add Bluetooth 4.0 and 802.11n Wi-Fi support to its X79 motherboards. However, the company is taking a different and in our opinion better approach
Belkin has announced their new wireless routers which come in the form of N150, N300, N600 Dual-Band and N750 Dual-Band. The routers claim to incoporate MultiBeam technology that can deliver fast speeds and fuller coverage for PCs, tablets, smartphones, TVs, and gaming consoles.
VR-Zone was among the few that was granted with an exclusive preview of the upcoming high performance Broadcom powered dual-band 450Mbps wireless router from Asus. The Asus RT-N66U was first seen a while back in January during the last CES. Look inside for a quick tour.
As Wi-Fi is evolving we've now hit speeds of 450Mbps, but to date you've been pretty much limited to using notebooks with a select choice of mini PCI Express cards to be able to reach those kinds of speeds. Now it seems like the first 450Mbps USB dongles are starting to appear and although we've
With the mostly disappointing AMD news today, we figured we'd post some more positive news, well, that is if you care at all about routers. Asus is getting ready to revamp its entire router product range and it seems like the company got really fond of its "Black Diamond" series design as we're looking at
Wireless routers are a dime a dozen these days, but we're quickly moving towards faster devices and 450Mbps routers seem to be the next common standard, the current limit of the Wi-Fi standard. TP-Link is now finally joining the part with its TL-WR2543ND, rather than the TL-WR2843ND which we spotted back at Computex in early June. It's
Over the years we've seen a lot of peculiar bits of hardware launch, but Samsung's new SE-208BW optical drive with Wi-Fi interface is among the strangest we've ever seen. Samsung calls it the Smart Media Hub rather than an optical drive, as beyond being able to connect to a PC over Wi-Fi, it also works
The TEW-692GW is the first router to support 450Mbps speeds on both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands simultaneously. This router's raw horsepower redefines wireless networking as we know it, to easily stream HD videos throughout your home and much more.
