I had been putting off reviewing D-Link’s Wireless N300 Range Extender (DAP-1320) because I wasn’t sure what to say about it. The product allows you to share your Wireless N Internet signal across your entire home so you can easily jump online even in difficult areas, such as the basement, attic and the like. And it delivers a connection speed of up to 300 Mbps.
Sometimes you just want more of what’s already good – like WiFi access that covers all of your home. Many people assume that buying a shiny new router will bathe their home/condo/outhouse in WiFi goodness.
To paraphrase that old chestnut, it really is the most wonderful time of year – for grads at least. Free from school and looking forward to an ‘endless summer’ will make many a graduate happy.
Of course, what would make them even happier would be to receive a bit of a reward for all those late night study sessions and soul-crushing exams.
Remember the days when routers were big and boxy with lots of flashing lights? Linksys has banished those designs back to the dirty days of 2010 with its new router lineup, which includes the do-it-all E4200.
Do you break out in a cold sweat when you hear the word “router”? Does trying to set one up cause you to go into a Homer Simpson-style rage?
The fear ends here – or at least with the Valet line of routers from Cisco. Designed to be setup with minimal effort on the user’s part, the Valet line, (which Cisco doesn’t even refer to as routers) is for folks who don’t want to call in a tech expert just to get connected to the Internet.
