    10 Editor's Choice award  

    Sometimes it just takes a little thing to make a big impact on a product. But what is the "little thing" that makes this adaptor so special?

    Despite all the advances of wireless 802.11n, walls and distance still conspire to kill your router's reception dead. Asus, like a knight of old, is here to rescue you like some long-haired damsel in distress.

    Western Digital WD Livewire review

    Western Digital WD Livewire review

    8  

    Western Digital WD Livewire doesn't look like other network powerline adaptors. For a start, it doesn't plug directly into a wall power socket. Instead, it's a small box that connects to the power socket via a cable.

    Asus USB-N53 review

    8  

    The Asus USB-N53 dual-band 300Mbps wireless N adaptor performs very well, and goes some way to justify its higher than average price. Being dual-band, you get both 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands - as long as you have a capable router - and interference from other wireless signals is kept to a minimum.
