Buffalo Technology 125* High Speed Mode Wireless Remote Secure Gateway

Sometimes innovative products are the ones that just bundle the right combination of existing capabilities into an easy-to-use package. We found that Buffalo Technology's WZR-RS-G54 fits this bill and merits a look if you frequently need to reach back into your LAN from afar.

QuickView: Canary Wireless Digital Hotspotter

Some people think WLAN detectors are a must-have buy, while others think they're just expensive toys. But since Canary Wireless' Digital Hotspotter is the first such device to provide more than just signal level info, some naysayers just may have to rethink their position.

QuickView: Linksys WCF54G Wireless-G Compact Flash Card

The wait is over for wireless networkers who have been waiting for an 802.11g card for their PDAs. If your PocketPC has a CompactFlash slot, the Linksys WCF54G will get you on the air quickly and we found wireless speed improvement to be better than expected.

Do Extended-range WLAN technologies deliver?

Longer range and faster speed are the watchwords for wireless LAN product manufacturers and the criteria by which many of us choose which products to buy. We take a look at three "extended range" WLAN technologies - Atheros' Super G / XR, Airgo Networks' True MIMO and Parker Vision's D2D - to see if they deliver as promised.

HeadToHead: 3Com Office Connect vs. NETGEAR Wireless 54Mbps Travel Routers

Who would have thought that the ability to set up a shared wireless LAN in a hotel room would be so popular? Apparently 3Com and NETGEAR did and turned to a common OEM to produce the first 802.11g miniature wireless routers. We take a detailed look at what sets these two separated-at-birth twins apart.

QuickView: BuffaloTech 54 Mbps Wireless USB 2.0 Keychain Adapter

Now that the novelty of "flash key" sized wireless adapters has worn off, manufacturers are faced with coming up with other ways to make their products stand out. Buffalo Technology's WLI-U2-KG54-AI has a unique approach that may be attractive to the less-organized among us.

Linksys WET54GS5 Wireless-G Ethernet Bridge with 5-port switch reviewed

You might be tempted to think that Linksys' WET54GS5 Wireless-G Ethernet Bridge with 5-port switch is just a WET54G with a slightly-overpriced 10/100 switch built in... but you'd be wrong. There's much, much more to this first-in-category product, including ways to make bandwidth hogs behave!

Linksys WRE54G Wireless-G Range Expander reviewed

Linksys' Wireless-G Range Expander pitches itself as a painless way to expand your wireless network's range. Unfortunately, we found it to be an interesting concept, but deliver far short of its promises.

How To: Manually Setting Up the Linksys WRE54G Wireless-G Range Expander

Linksys' WRE54G Wireless-G Range Expander [reviewed here] is a WDS-based 802.11b / g repeater that Linksys says works only with its WAP54G access point and WRT54G and WRT54GS wireless routers. But with a little effort, you can get it to function with any 802.11b or g product that supports WDS-based bridging and/or repeating.
