Belkin makes ad-hoc networking simple with Wireless-USB

Belkin makes ad-hoc networking simple with Wireless-USB

Ad-hoc networking two computers together has undoubtedly gotten easier since I tried - and failed - to use a serial cable to do it many years ago, but anything that makes it foolproof has to be appreciated.  Belkin's latest range of Wireless USB accessories might just manage that; while their range so far has concentrated on removing the cable between PC and peripherals thanks to a WUSB hub, these dongles should be a plug & play way to quickly link two computers.

Belkin’s WUSB Gets a Face Lift

Offering up full USB transfer rates of 480Mbps at distances of up to 30ft away this pretty little device’s usefulness often comes into question. But now that it is even sleeker looking than its predecessor it should be an easier sale.

Belkin’s WiFi hub unhooks your USB

It may look like Belkin's Darth Vader answer to the Apple TV, but this unassuming slab is in fact a WiFi-enabled USB hub.  In effect a tiny system running embedded Linux, it has five USB 2.0 ports that communicate with any PC on a network via 802.11n - devices plugged in show up as if they're connected directly to the PC itself.

Belkin’s Draft-N line-up comes in for critical scrutiny

Belkin’s Draft-N line-up comes in for critical scrutiny

Seeing Mitchell Oke's review of the Belkin N1 Router came at quite an opportune time for me, since I'm thinking of upgrading my network to accommodate all the media that's drifting round it.  Taking advantage of draft-N WiFi, which promises 300mbit speeds, Belkin sent him the surprisingly chunky base station and an N1 ExpressCard to test it with and Mitchell took it to task to see how worthy the $149.95 & $119.95 successors are to existing 802.11g wireless.

Make use of that hole in your desk

Make use of that hole in your desk

Every now and then you come across something so obvious that you know you should have thought of it first. That's the way I felt when I first saw the new desk grommets that are being made by Belkin.
