  1. Linksys WAG354G review

    Linksys WAG354G review

    10  

    Linksys' 802.11b/g ADSL router has been through a few changes, rather like the Netgear DG834G. It has become more reliable with progressive firmware updates, and has also changed colour and shape...

    Getting your AV kit networked is a logical extension of using compressed music and downloaded video from the Internet. But it's not without its problems.

    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.

    Linksys WRT350N ver.2 review

    7  

    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 TEW-633GR review

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

    D-Link DKT-810 review

    6  

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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

    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

    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

    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
