Buffalo TeraStation Pro II added to NAS Charts

I had been bugging Buffalo for awhile to get me either the TeraStation Pro II or Live so that I could see how the switch to a Marvell-based NAS platform affected performance. Looks like it helps quite a bit.

Check out the NAS Charts, which include data for 100, 1000 and 1000 w/ 4k jumbo LAN connections and RAID 0, 5 and 10 modes. Enjoy!

The Trouble with Apple TV

I was looking through the June 11 Fortune and came across this article by Brent Schlender. The text doesn't tell you anything that you probably don't already know. But the pictures will probably be getting the folks in Cupertino riled up! You can read (and see) it here.

Another call for writers

Well, folks, I'm still looking for a few good writers. The last call produced turned up many interesting candidates. But when the realities of the job hit, many had to back away.

I'm looking for writers with expertise three areas:

  • Router reviews - You'll review consumer and small-business routers and gateways, both with and without integrated VPN gateways.
  • Open Source networking - You'll be reviewing open source networking distros and tools and writing how tos using open source tools.
  • Security - You'll write about small network security and network management issues.

Due to product shipment logistics, product reviewers must be located in the U.S. Otherwise, you can be anywhere as long as you have good English writing skills. Let's hear from you!

Slurpr: Cool black box or jail bait?

Dutch hacker, Mark Hoekstra, has unveiled his latest project—the Slurpr. It's a router that can connect to six wireless networks simultaneously and channel the aggregated bandwidth into a private LAN.

How can we serve you?

From time to time, I like to take the pulse of the SmallNetBuilder readership to see how we can better serve you. So let's have it.

Are we writing about stuff that you care about? What subjects do you want to see more of? Less of? Are the reviews too long? Too short? Just right?

Just post a comment (no login required) to respond. Thanks!

NAS Chart improvements

If you haven't visited the NAS Charts lately, you might want to drop by and check out the new features:

  • A "New" flag has been added to make it easier to find products added in the last 30 days
  • We've started to add Power consumption data
  • Added a small filesize mode for those who have been asking for performance data using smaller file sizes. The new mode shows data for 64KB through 16MB file sizes. The original mode showing 32MB though 1GB file size data is now referred to as the large filesize mode

Blogs now integrated

I finally got around to pulling the Blogs into the main site. They were running on a standalone install of WordPress. But that left them sort of hanging out alone. You now can comment on Blog posts, with or without site registration.

Trying something different for Comments

The folks over at TG Daily have been having good luck with not requiring registration for using their Comments feature. So far, at least, they haven't been overwhelmed with usual load of spam postings that such things usually bring.

How many versions of powerline networking do we need?

If you've been following powerline networking, you know that the wireless LAN industry isn't the only one capable of screwing up a market in the name of "consumer choice".

Panasonic today "announced" upcoming retail availability (in Japan only) of the BL-PA100 powerline Ethernet adapter that it actually announced at January's CES.

Missing Charts and Slideshows

Apologies to those of you who have been trying to find the new Router and NAS charts. The new charts have different URLs and I thought I had forwarding working for all of the old versions of the URLs. But apparently I didn't.

So this morning I spent some quality time with mod_rewrite and things should be working fine now. If you for some reason hit a chart link and don't get the chart, send me the bad URL and I'll get it fixed.
