  1. Belkin N1 Vision F5D8232-4 review

    Belkin N1 Vision F5D8232-4 review

    9  

    Full credit to Belkin for coming up with a router that stands out from the crowd. Based on the N1 model this N1 Vision stands vertically, so that you can clearly see the LCD display.

    Belkin Network USB Hub review

    We know what you’re thinking: “£63 for a USB hub?” However, there’s something rather different about this shiny slab. It’ll take any standard USB device such as a USB hard drive and make it networkable.

    Linksys WRT350N ver.2 review

    Linksys has used this distinctive router casing in a number of models and we saw it a few months back in the WRT300N. Thankfully, the colours have been toned down, so the casing is black with silver trim.

    It's a sign of the times that 802.11n has taken so long to limp towards ratification that there is a fair amount of Draft-n hardware on sale that is getting rather long in the tooth.

    TRENDnet has a new look for its router, but things didn't start too promisingly for the router and USB adapter.

    The D-Link DKT-810 All-In-One ADSL2+ modem router starter kit consists of a DSL-2740B router which costs £89 and a DWA-140 USB adapter that will set you back £45, both including VAT, so the boxed set saves you a whole £2.

    Sonos Digital Music System review

    The concept of wirelessly streaming digital music around the home isn't new. We've noted the potential of the Slim Devices SqueezeBox, admired the design of the Roku Soundbridge, and had a soft, almost gooey spot for Cambridge Audio's Azur 640H

    So the N1 Vision is basically a router with a screen, isn't it? Indeed, so rather than focusing on the traditional router functions, we'll talk more about what's new. The setup is seamless and is disc-less. The screen is undoubtedly a luxury, but it's handy.

    Most PC users have large music libraries, that they've either downloaded or ripped from their own CDs, but find they have no real way of playing that music on anything other than their PC's speakers

    Got a fixed network in your home or home office and don't want to add wireless to it just yet? You can extend it without having to lay cables using the existing mains wiring in your house or office.

    FON (La Fonera+) review

    7  

    Wi-Fi is pretty much everywhere: at least that's the theory behind FON, which aims to create the world's biggest Wi-Fi network. The FON device, La Fonera+, is just a wireless access point that provides communal Internet access through your broadband connection.

    This is something we've been hoping Devolo would release for an age now. Having played around with the company's HomePlug stuff before, we know that its solutions offer quality connections

    Asus Portable Wireless Access Point review

    9  

    This is the niftiest bit of networking kit we've seen in a long time. It's an all-singing all-dancing wireless wonder. In what's likely to be the most used mode, it's simply a wireless bridge, controlled via your browser, that takes ethernet connections.

    Once you've tried networked multimedia, it's difficult to go back to anything else - as any rich AV enthusiast will tell you. You might have read about dream kit like the Kaleidescape media system - yours for £25k

    Linksys WAG-325N review

    6  

    With the news that Linksys as a brand has been killed off by owner Cisco, it's a somewhat hollow final outing for the latest of its multi-function wireless modem/routers. The WAG-325N is about as uninspired as its corporate blue and black outer shell

    D-Link DIR-655 review

    8  

    Our love affair with the DIR-655 in its many model variations continues with this latest release. It's not the first router to offer 802.11n Draft 2 compliance, but it does add a wealth of new features to the package to set it apart from the competition

    Billion BiPAC 7300G review

    For little over forty pounds we weren't expecting much from Billion's offering but what we found was pleasantly feature packed and easy to use ADSL2+ Modem/Router. Nothing it offers here is standout technology but it works well

    D-Link DHP-301 Powerline HD Ethernet Kit review

    To call power line networking a bandwagon is perhaps too much of a cliché, but debating the lexicon of the English language is irrelevant; more and more networking vendors are jumping onto it. But quite why is a mystery.

    Media streamers are still a piece of kit for the dedicated digital media-head, but if you've got a few gigabytes of music, video and photos stuck on a desktop PC that you'd rather watch on your livingroom TV...

    Power-line Ethernet adaptors have been with us for some years, but few have been able to produce a broadband signal that really helps to boost the range of your router.

    MobiGater review

    It looks like a router and behaves like one too, but the MobiGater isn't designed for your broadband connection. Instead, this device turns your ordinary mobile phone into a VoIP one, which supposedly enables you to make free phone calls wherever you are

    The rollout of Draft-N has hardly been inspiring; poor interoperability and speeds little over the capabilities of existing MIMO-G makes you wonder why all that extra expense is needed?

    ZyXel may not be one of the better known Wi-Fi makes out there, but we've been impressed with how versatile the company's kit is. The ZyXEL NBG-415N has a specification that is nearly identical to the SMC WBR14-N

    SMC has been around for some time. They have buffed up the looks of their Barricade routers, so whereas earlier models have looked either ugly or quirky, this WBR14-N is understated and appealing

    Linksys WAG325N ADSL2 plus review

    7  

    The Linksys WAG325N ADSL2 includes an ADSL modem, so if you make a £20 allowance for the modem, this is one of the cheapest routers around. This, you might think, is a good thing, but the stylists have conspired to make the Linksys look cheap and nasty
