Our test procedure for 802.11a wireless products.
This is the description of the revised wireless test method used between October 1, 2003 and November 2005.
This is the description of our original wireless test method.
One of the “lessons learned” from our testing of higher speed (>10Mbps) network adapters is that you don’t always get what you think you’re getting, i.e. higher network speed. Things that didn’t matter at lower network speeds come into play when using products such as 100Mbps Ethernet adapters and even the newer 802.11a wireless network adapters.
Review of Linksys’ PLEBR10 HomePlug compatible power line to Ethernet Bridge
The past few months have seen a number of introductions of consumer priced routers with built-in VPN Endpoints. Although this kind of product has been around for awhile, they’ve tended to be pretty expensive ($500 and up) and out of the range of most folks (unless their company was footing the bill!). So how can a company come along and do the same thing for under $150? Well, that’s what I wondered, too, so I took a pair of Linksys BEFVP41’s into the lab and had at ’em. You can see how they did in the resulting review.
