The coming wave of consumer routers with gigabit Ethernet switches is starting to hit. ASUS' RX3141 is the first to support Jumbo Frames, but Tim Higgins finds it not as innovative on other counts.
Small is cool and small can be convenient. But is having a four-port wireless router that's slightly larger than a pack of bubble gum really what the doctor ordered? Jim Hubbard looks at two mini-wonders and draws his own conclusions.
Compact 2.5 inch drive enclosure that provides Ethernet and 802.11g wireless NAS features. Functions as AP or wireless client. Includes DHCP and FTP servers
Maybe it's just that the novelty has worn off, but we weren't as impressed with the 11g version of ASUS' miniature Access Point. Read our QuickView review of the WL-330G and find out why.
Simply put, ASUS' SL1000 is one hell of a powerful little router and our test bench is still smoking! But it has a user interface that only true networking techies can love. ASUS agrees on this last point so it'll be awhile before you can buy it, but you can at least read about it now.
At first glance, you might dismiss ASUS' tiny WL-330 as a wireless toy, but you'd be wrong. This mighty-mite packs good performance, WDS bridging / repeating and Ethernet-to-wireless adapter capabilities into a package that's sure to lend itself to some creative uses.
