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...

Got range? Amped Wireless does. The networking company just introduced what it's calling the "industry's most powerful dual-band Wi-Fi Repeater," enabling users to have Wi-Fi waves extended in range up to 10,000 square feet.

Network one adapter to a router and plug another adapter into any outlet on the same electrical system for instant... Read more...
There's professional grade, consumer grade, and then there's ZyXEL, which seems to strike a balance between the two. The high-end networking company has just revealed their new NBG5715 dual-band wireless router, a "supercharged gateway" that doubles performance by creating two separate, concurrent networks. This enables consumers to browse the Internet over the standard 2.4 GHz band, while high-bandwidth, low-latency activities, such as streaming Internet movies or playing lag-free games online, can be performed over the 5 GHz band. The router also uniquely features two USB ports to accommodate... Read more...

If we were ever looking to start up a router company, we'd probably call it Amped Wireless. Just seems to click, doesn't it? Too bad, though, because that company name is already taken.
