Every year, new phones, new CPUs, new everything arrives in the hope you’ll upgrade at some point, with WiFi getting a nice new upgrade to support ever faster speeds, with Netgear, Linksys, TP-Link, ASUS and others set to release 6E routers this year which uses the 6Ghz band that is "free of interference and congestion" - in 2021, at least!
Linksys and Trend Micro have "joined forces" to deliver new security features to users of the mesh-enabled Linksys Velop home router, at per month or per year pricing.
Researchers have discovered that malware dubbed VPNFilter affects many more brands of routers than first thought, adding six more names to the list they enumerated on 23 May. They have also found that it can deliver exploits to endpoints.
Networking equipment maker Netgear has advised users of its routers to ensure they are running the latest firmware in the wake of reports that malware known as VPNFilter has infected nearly 500,000 devices in 54 countries.
Security company Avast says it has found similarities between the code injected into CCleaner and the APT17/Aurora malware created by a Chinese advanced persistent threat group in 2014/2015.
Czech cyber security company Avast has substantiated the findings by Cisco's Talos Intelligence Group that malware hidden in CCleaner, a popular application that allows Windows users to perform routine maintenance on their systems, was aimed at big technology companies in the US, Europe and Asia.
Linksys has released Velop to envelop the whole-of-home Wi-Fi issue – it claims to be the first AC tri-band modular Wi-Fi system that can be installed in a mesh configuration to provide 100% speed to the edge of the network.
More than three months after being informed about remotely exploitable vulnerabilities in 25 router models, Linksys is yet to issue patches to remedy them.
Linksys has used the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) to launch its new Velop modular mesh-enabled home Wi-Fi system that “chains” nodes together for maximum coverage and speed.
When you have the fastest router on the planet, it nicely shows up the inadequacy of your Internet connection. The kicker is that your Internet speed can range from few Mbps to a few hundred Mbps depending on your ISP, but it is nice to know that this router can handle them all with lots more headroom.
The world’s first AC5400, MU-MIMO, router; first AC1900, MU-MIMO range extender; and first AC600, MU-MIMO USB adaptor are all helping to extract the ultimate performance from your “skinny-band” pipe coming into most homes.
Too many people put up with slow access and inferior Wi-Fi when for a relatively small investment they could get a new router and fix all of that.
The big trend in routers is to Wave 2, beamforming, multi-user, multiple input/multiple output, because essentially each MU-MIMO end-point has its own direct link to the router.
Clustering adds single configuration, better roaming, automatic channel assignment, and increased reliability.
Linksys says MU-MIMO is the key to realising the full potential of the Wi-Fi 802.11ac spectrum especially as new end-point devices start to support it.
The Internet of Things can refer to any device that connects to the internet or via Wi-Fi or Ethernet in a network. In this case routers and other connected devices. This is an overview of network connected devices I have reviewed or things I think meet the ‘pretty’ good specifications.
Apartment and small home dwellers have a perfect, more affordable solution, for smaller spaces – and it looks like a Blue and Black Linksys of old – only sexier.
“It’s time to trade up – a 317% increase in speed at 15 metres and a whopping 2,329% at 35+ metres away through reinforced concrete and several walls.
When Belkin bought Linksys in 2013 it became much more than an accessory maker. After a year of bedding in the merger and developing new products it has a range of winning products.
Promising best-in-class 802.11AC performance and open-source support for its new WRT1200AC router, Linksys also adds better Wi-Fi range extendability to the list.
