We thought we saw the last of extraordinary long rabbit ears when flat panel televisions supplanted bulky CRTs and cable/satellite service became ubiquitous. Boy, were we wrong. They're back, and they're the secret sauce in Asus' recipe for a wireless router, access point, and range extender all rolled into one device. The new Asus RT-N12HP is that device, and it purportedly offers up to 300 percent wider wireless coverage compared to standard N300 routers. Getting that kind of range required a custom hardware architecture augmented with detachable 9dBi high-gain antennas and a discrete signal... Read more...
Despite the fact that 802.11ac products have barely even penetrated the market up to this point, we now have another standard to keep our eyes on: 802.11ad. No, that's not some odd date format talking about the year 802, but rather an upcoming wireless standard that's said to be more revolutionary than evolutionary - the latter of which 802.11ac is. Due in 2014, the 802.11ad standard will open up a new band, 60GHz, which will allow for transmission speeds far greater than the typical home network will offer - up to 7Gbit/s. It's important to note; that's just a theoretical maximum, and... Read more...

Quick! What's the first thing that comes to mind when you think about Western Digital? If you're like most people, you immediately thought of hard drives and other storage products, which have been WD's bread and butter for several decades now. But the times, they are a changin', and in case you haven't noticed, Western Digital is no longer content to simply take residence in your PC. That became evident when Western Digital dove into the media player market with its WD TV line-up of set-top boxes, but why stop at owning the living room when you can lord over the entire manor?

A couple of weeks ago, Cisco launched Cisco Connect Cloud, a cloud platform for Linksys Smart WiFi routers that was designed to make setting up and using the router much simpler and more user-friendly and included a convenient mobile app and third-party apps that offered enhanced functionality such as easy streaming to smart TVs. Suffice it to say that however Cisco expected the early returns on the platform to go, it was not expecting the amount of blowback it received; apparently, not everyone wants to be forced into opting in to a cloud service, especially one that contained the following in...

Home automation sort of feels like a lost art. It's popular, yes, but only in high-end homes, generally speaking. Even Google tried to push it mainstream last year with the introduction of Android@Home, but alas, it was mostly a nonstarter. Now, Belkin is dipping its toes into the game with WeMo. It's a line of modular, Wi-Fi-based products that turn an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch into a remote control for household devices. Consisting of two initial products, the WeMo Switch and the WeMo Motion, WeMo works with the free WeMo app to create a scalable, customizable home control system. The WeMo... Read more...

It's said to be the first repeater to include 5 gigabit networking ports for connecting PCs, A/V devices... Read more...
