C|Net Computers.com heeft een roundup met 5 draadloze netwerkkits in elkaar geknutseld. Erg handig als je geen zin hebt om je halve huis te verbouwen voor het aaleggen van een simpel netwerkje. Hier wat plakwerk uit de intro:
If you're one of those multiple-PC households, you may want your systems to talk to each other through a network. We decided to try out five of the latest home-networking kits, all of which allow you to share printers, files, and Internet access, as well as to play networked games. One of the most appealing promises of these solutions is the ability to share Internet access, meaning that you could hypothetically use one dial-up account for two or more computers in your home. In these kits, however, we found shared Internet access to be more trouble than it's worth: Web pages took forever to download, and setup was a headache. Perhaps the most important advantage is that none of these five candidates requires you to tear up your carpet or drill holes in your walls, as is the case with traditional wired kits, such as 3Com's Office Connect. All of this inter-PC and peripheral communication comes to you cable-free or wirelessly.
