A post-it sized router? Now that's something that'll pique our interest. ZyXEL has just released their MWT102 portable router/access point. The tiny, USB-powered device enables business travelers and other users to connect multiple Wi-Fi devices to the Internet from a single connection. It's said to be ideal for business travelers, who typically carry several mobile devices, such as a smartphone, tablet and laptop, and require constant Internet connectivity. The MWR102 also boasts dedicated LAN and WAN ports, so it may be used as a wireless access point in hotel rooms, conference rooms or other... 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...
Wireless HDMI used to be a luxury reserved for those with more cash than sense, or just an infatuation with home cinema (and a hatred for wires). These days, it's becoming more and more an amenity that's available to the mainstream. Wireless video transmission still has a bad reputation to beat -- one that involves lag and missed frames -- but ZyXEL's new adapter is hoping to change some of those preconceived notions. The WHD6215 is a WirelessHD adapter kit that allows any HDMI-enabled device to stream wirelessly to HDTVs. It's a transmitter/receiver combo that enables consumers to place their... Read more...
A new router may not seem all that interesting, but a new 3G router? Now that's something worth investigating. ZyXEL's new MWR211 is a mobile 3G router, yet it also supports wired DSL/cable connections. Unlike many MiFi devices, this one has no Wi-Fi device limit. Most MiFis restrict usage to just five Wi-Fi devices, but this one's a new breed; it's also carrier agnostic, meaning that it isn't locked down to any single carrier. There's also an integrated firewall, support for 802.11n transfers, and a built-in rechargeable battery that will keep things alive for 4 hours in standby, or 2 hours in... Read more...
You don't have to be a die-hard computer nerd to use ZyXEL's new X150N router, you just need $40 and the ability to plug things in without electrocuting yourself. Aimed at the entry-level audience, ZyXEL is billing their latest router as a cinch to setup with little to maintenance or support once it's all up and running. Despite the ease-of-use, ZyXEL insists the X150N is both speedy and secure. WPA2 AES wireless encryption comes as part of the deal, as does on-board, one-button encryption. Other features include a built-in Firewall, Dynamic DNS, UPnP, bandwidth management, VPN pass-through, and... Read more...
