The media streamer market has really become crowded as of late, with the new Apple TV, a few new Roku boxes and tons of lesser-known products coming to light. It's clear that the Web is the next big portal for content, and now Boxee is hoping to enjoy some of this market with the Boxee Box, produced by D-Link. The Box itself has been announced and floating around for the better part of this year, but a ship date kept slipping and slipping. Now the slipping is over. Boxee has today announced that November 10th will mark the day in which the first Boxee Box units begin shipping. Those who pre-ordered via Amazon in the U.S. will see their Boxee Box units as early as Nov. 11, as will those in Canada... Read more...
The little HTPC (Home Theater PC) and media center software start-up, Boxee, has been making a splash on the web scene since it first debuted in public beta back in January 2010.  The software was developed in an effort for cross-platform support and as such, has received a lot of air-play on the internet by end users, social media as well as Boxee's platform partners.  With the ability to support a "soup to nuts" offering of web-delivered content from big name providers such as NetFlix, YouTube, CBS and ABC, as well as stream locally stored media from NAS devices, USB drives, optical devices and even a BitTorrent tracker; Boxee's "10 foot" user interface claims to be able to become...

Is little Johnny always complaining about his Internet connection crapping out on the other end of your home? There are a number of solutions, one of which is to make him go outside and play like we used to do as kids. Barring that, you can string Ethernet cord through and around walls and get him plugged him, or if D-Link has its druthers, you'll pick up its new PowerLine AV Wireless N Extender "Powerline technology is the perfect complement to Wi-Fi connectivity," said Harrison Albert, Director at D-Link Middle East & Africa. "Our D-Link PowerLine AV Wireless N Extender is the most cost-effective way for home and small office users to expand the capacity, power, and flexibility of the network,... Read more...
And so it begins. Boxee, which has generally let users access a wealth of free online content from a variety of locations, has finally seen the light: you need premium content (or a great Plan B) to stay afloat in today's environment. The company has been quoted as saying that they aren't planning to make anything from their partnership with D-Link on the Boxee Box, but now that they've opened this window, there's really no turning back. Premium content has arrived on Boxee, and we suspect that more and more of it will continue to arrive. And that's a good thing for everyone, regardless if you plan on buying any of it or not. The company has this week revealed a new partnership with Sonic Solutions,... Read more...
Waiting is a tough, tough thing. Waiting on a new gadget is even tougher. Late last year, the folks at Boxee seemed to think that the Boxee Box (which was being built by D-Link) would be available to consumers in the first half of 2010. It's sort of tough to believe, but the first half of 2010 is just about over. With the latter half quickly approaching, Boxee has issued an update to everyone wondering if we'd see the Boxee Box go on sale in the next couple of weeks. Unfortunately, that doesn't look like it will be the case. According to a new post on Boxee's own blog, the original plan was to have the Box out by the end of Q2 (i.e. just about now), but that time-frame "proved overly ambitious."... Read more...
What's better than a WLAN router? Why, a WWAN router, of course! D-Link has just introduced its newest 3.5G router in the DIR-412, which is a compact wireless access point that essentially enables multiple users with Wi-Fi devices to share a single cellular data connection. The portable router ships with 802.11n functionality, which essentially enables users to plug in their WWAN modem and then distribute that signal to any device with a Wi-Fi chip. You'll obviously see a significant slow down if you try to connect to many users to a single connection, but it definitely has merit in a pinch. No price or release date is mentioned, but with CES just around the bend, we're guessing it'll be sooner... Read more...

In an effort to protect against automated attacks, D-Link has added CAPTCHA protection to its line of home and small office routers. Most of us have dealt with CAPTCHA at some point in time, but this is the first time we’ve seen it on a router. CAPTCHA, which stands for Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart, requires a user to enter a small amount of text displayed in an image to help prevent automated registration and fraud. D-Link says the new protections are being added in response to an increasingly sophisticated crop of malware. In the D-Link routers, the CAPTCHA system is designed to thwart worms that could access the routers and alter the victim’s DNS... Read more...

D-Link DHN-920 - 10Mb Phone Line USB Network In A Box  A Home Network For Dummies By Dave Altavilla - September 11, 2000   The proverbial "free lunch", this is what Home Networking really delivers to most people and what draws consumers down the isles of the retail store peering at boxes.  Let think about this for a moment.  Most households these days are quickly justifying the expense (if it can be afforded) of adding a second computer for the kids or possibly the spouse instead (in many cases ladies, I realize there may be a fine line between the two anyway).  Now, each one of these machines needs access to the internet and printer service.  The rest...
