    Netgear RangeMax WNR834B review

    7  

    With IEEE 802.11n - the faster successor to the current g standard - being touted in the next iteration of Intel's Centrino chips, it makes sense to consider upgrading your wireless network to the fastest connection possible

    Apple AirPort Extreme Base Station review

    7  

    This gorgeous little box is Apple's newly updated AirPort Extreme Base Station. The Extreme now comes with support for the 802.11n wireless standard, which exploits meatier wireless frequencies than before

    Asus WL-700gE Wireless Storage Router review

    8  

    When is a router not a router? When it's a Network Storage Server (NAS) as well! We've seen plenty of routers before and we've seen plenty of NAS devices, but this is the first time that we've seen the two technologies married

    Trendnet Draft-N Router review

    8  

    The Draft-N standard for wireless-LAN has yet to be ratified and it is unlikely to be so before 2008. However, the second draft hasn't been altered in almost six months, prompting manufacturers to release products

    Fritz!Box Wireless VoIP Router review

    ADSL routers are now two-a-penny, but the Fritz!Box aims to stand out from the crowd. You're encouraged to install the router using the enclosed disc. However, there's one small problem...

    Trendnet 300Mbps Wireless Draft-N package review

    While we had to put up with the constraints of 802.11g and its relatively miserly maximum throughput of 54Mbps, the next generation of wireless connectivity, 802.11n

    Netgear Powerline HD review

    Unless you have pre-wired, high-capacity Ethernet, getting data around the house without pinning cables to the skirting board can be a challenge. Wireless is good enough for internet browsing, but it lacks the data rates for reliable media streaming

    Hercules USB WiFi Transmitter review

    9  

    Who needs a wireless router for basic, G-grade wireless? Seriously, why would you buy one when this little chap does it all so easily, with the minimum of set-up faff, and all for the far-from-princely sum of £30?

    Devolo dLAN 200 AVdesk Starter Kit review

    8  

    First we had 14Mbps networks, then 85Mbps. Now the latest upgrade from Devolo promises 200Mbps and introduces numerous features to make the resultant network better suited to video streaming. But does it deliver?

    ZyXEL P-336M review

    7  

    Where other manufacturers have moved on through Pre-N to Draft-N in a determined bid to persuade you that newer is better, ZyXEL takes a modest stance by describing its P-336M MiMo router as a Super G design

    Netgear WNR834B (SH) review

    Neatgear was one of the first manufacturers with a Pre-N wireless router offering and, with its RangeMax Next products, Netgear offers you a choice of speeds for wired Ethernet ports.

    Linksys WRT300N review

    6  

    There's no missing the three antennae that sit on top of the Linksys WRT300N router. Two are conventional sticks, while the middle one looks like it was stolen from the head of Dr Who's sidekick, K9.

    Buffalo Nfinite WZR-G300N review

    4  

    The first thing you'll notice about the Buffalo Nfiniti is how cheap it is. Buffalo has used the Broadcom Intensi-Fi chip in its Nfiniti router to dynamically combine two 20MHz channels in the 2.4GHz range to give a wide 40MHz channel...

    Buffalo certainly seems to pride itself on being one of the first networking companies to hit the market with new technologies, thanks to a close relationship with Broadcom.On a performance front, the Buffalo kit was reassuringly solid in all conditions.

    NetGear Powerline HD Adaptor HDX101 review

    9  

    Powerline networking is the best solution for extending your network to a different area of your home. This adaptor is designed with high throughput in mind and will even stand you in good stead when 802.11n rears its head.

    Netgear DG834N review

    6  

    How many times have you bought something that's outmoded in a few months? That isn't going to happen to this ADSL router, primarily because it's not finished yet. The DG834N is the new 802.11n-ready version of the market-trouncing DG834G 802.11b/g router

    This is Netgear's best-selling product. No surprise really: not only is the DG834G a breeze to set up, but it's also available at an excellent price and future proof technology such as ADSL2 and VPN support.

    BT Voyager 2110 review

    BT released this 802.11b/g model around two years ago. That's a long time ago in any aspect of technology, let alone networking. Even then, we were sceptical it would have any impact in the market as it was so late.

    Belkin Wireless G MIMO Router review

    Belkin Wireless G MIMO Router review

    8  

    The big benefit of 802.11n, when it arrives, will be the data rate; theoretically it can hit 540Mbps or even higher, 10 times the standard 802.11g speed of 54Mbps. You'll need to wait for 12 months at least for that

    Belkin G Plus MIMO review

    8  

    The main benefit of this Belkin model is increased wireless range, so you can use devices further away from your wireless access point, for example. The G MIMO is not as good as the latest Draft-N kits hitting the market now...
