Belkin 802.11g Wireless Access Point reviewed

Belkin's F5D7130 802.11g Wireless Access Point is one of the first 802.11g APs to be both 11g spec-compliant and support Wi-Fi Protected Access. We found it to be a good performer, but with some limitations that might cause some prospective purchasers to think twice before buying.

Linksys Wireless-G Ethernet Bridge Reviewed

Linksys' WET11 Wireless Ethernet Bridge brought wireless 802.11b bridging to the masses with its combination of low price and easy configuration.

Second-generation 802.11a NTK

The wireless networking world seems to have lost interest in 802.11a wireless LAN products. Although its advantages of operating in a quieter frequency band, significantly faster maximum data rate, and more non-interfering channels than 802.11b were attractive, its range problems and cost premium caused many prospective buyers to look, but not buy.
