    Terratec Noxon2Audio review

    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

    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

    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

    7  

    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

    6  

    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...

    Panasonic HD-PLC Ethernet Adaptor review

    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

    6  

    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

    Zyxel NBG-415N review

    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 NBG-415N review

    6  

    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 WBR14-N review

    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

    6  

    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

    Apple AirPort Extreme Base Station review

    It won't come as a shock to learn that Apple takes an individual approach with its AirPort Extreme Base Station. The least surprising aspect is the shiny white styling that looks very similar to the Apple TV unit

    USRobotics MAXg ADSL2 Networking Kit review

    We've seen combined ADSL modem router and USB adaptor packs before and we're still not convinced of their usefulness. Almost every laptop has built-in wireless capability, while we reckon that most desktops are usually plugged into routers

    Over in the world of wireless networking, 802.11n draft 2 has just been moved one step up the bureaucratic ladder towards final ratification. Woo! That means another six or so months to wait before it's finally ready

    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

    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

    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

    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
