Public Hot Spots: One Truth and Two Myths

Maverick Powerline 4-Port Bridge

Hook up of the two hubs was as simple as plugging them into an available wall socket and connecting all the network cables to the hubs. After that was done the two hubs automatically found each other and transferring data through my AC wiring was up and running.

Don't be afraid: Try WiFi

To sum it up WiFi rocks! Don't be afraid to give it a try at your home or office, as you'll ooh and ahh every time you plop down in that Adirondack chair on your deck with your laptop or check your email while waiting for your delayed flight at the airport.

Taking the Pain Out of Home Networking

Smart products and applications help the help desk help you. Even in the cases in which a smart product can't fix or reconfigure itself (and you have to call for help), the product automatically sends to the help desk a detailed description of the problem, the automatic fixes that have already been tried, and a description of the network configuration in which the product is operating.

Wired or Wireless Home Networking

The two protocols are not compatible with each other, they operate in different frequency ranges 2.4 GHz (802.11b) and 5 (802.11a) GHz. The speed rate that they transfer data are different; 802.11a up to 54Mbps compared to 802.11b 11Mbps (theoretical speeds). Finally though 802.11b came first, 802.11a is the new standard which most people are adopting because of the higher transfer rates.

Actiontec 54Mbps Wireless Access Point

One advantage this newer standard has over 802.11b systems is that it runs on the 5GHz frequency band where it will not get any interference from 2.4 GHz devices such as cordless phones etc. Also, by adding 128 bit RC4 and 152 bit RC4 data encryption there should be no need to worry about data security.

Compaq iPAQ CP-2W

Your internet browser is used to access the various settings etc. of the CP-2W. From this simple interface you can set up your internet connection (multiple options), wireless SSID and WEP Encryption security setting etc. There is a built in NAT firewall that when tested using "Shields Up" http://grc.com/ came through with flying colors.

Home Networking Options

For homeowners who aren't up to the complexity of stringing cable or installing a wireless home network, or whose wireless networks aren't reaching the critical areas they need to support, the powerline concept is quickly emerging as a robust and viable alternative that is also inexpensive and exceptionally easy to use.

Phonex NeverWire 14

The NeverWire 14 devices are very simple to setup with just a 10base-t network connection, a switch for the network hub and a switch for security. Just plug in the first unit and push the security button. Then go and plug in the other units and push their security buttons. This will set up the 56 bit security encryption so no one on the same wiring can tap into your network. The security will stay set on the units even if you unplug them.
