    review is from: GUH285W6 IOGEAR 4 Port USB 2.0 Hub (Black) (Personal Computers)

    The device works as advertised, I use in my Samsung Series 9 as there is only 1 USB 2.0 and 1 USB 3.0, I plug my USB 3.0 External HD (2TB) on one side, and this is in the 2.0 port. 4 ports is a lot for my iPod, Blackberry & Mouse, 1 being open to the USB-> SD adapter (since my Samsung has just MicroSD slot). I’m happy with it, fits nicely in my pocket, no wires to get tangled in circulation.

    advantages. Sleek design, 4 USB ports functional Under $ 10, the definitely a deal breaker for me was the cable works in, so that the hub ultra portable
    drawbacks… the design of the USB connection to the PC is kind of meh The cable is really embarrassing, and the hub Art hangs loosely I would “stay in one place” a stroke preferred

    . UPDATE: It took less than six months, the little light goes on, but no connections are made. … Bummer For the price, it might be still worth

    This review is from: NETGEAR WNCE2001 Universal WiFi Internet Adapter – Manufacturer Refurbished (Electronics)

    We have a very tech-oriented A / V set-up here and we often used to new to upgrade components when a new generation comes with some feature that we want, and I’m sick with the upper end of BD players and other components to buy to get the ones with built in wifi. The USB dongle for BD players and TVs sold are a ripoff. They are proprietary and usually only 1 year’s worth of components operate, making them useless to upgrade if you in the future. I discovered this product while searching for a alternative.
    I own three of these Netgear devices. Two of them I bought at the local big box stores new and the third order was renovated from Deal Ville through Amazon. The only difference that I found with the renovation is that the serial numbers were . and blackened I do not think it came with the sticky notes you can mount it somewhere out of the way
    What is included:
    The unit – measures approximately 2 “x 3” x 0.5 “in size It is very small and easily out of the way
    A short CAT5 Ethernet cable ~ 3 ‘or … Sun
    a PSU.
    A USB cable.
    After reading some reviews before buying I read that the power to the device via USB is often not sufficient enough juice so that I have only used this with the power supply.
    up using WPS or from your computer to be carried out. I them all up through my computer and have never used the WPS setup option. You basically insert it into your computer’s Ethernet port and launch a web browser. The browser will take you to the setup configuration and enter the info for your local WiFi network and connects. It’s pretty simple, if you are setting things wireless usual.

    strengths.
    -This unit has superior antenna strength (when powered by AC adapter) One of our Blu-ray player is diagonally away in the house and on a different floor from the router and we had several wireless battle for a good connection from there to establish. This manages the connection is good and with full force.
    versatility. This will be for just about anything you can put in it, including computers, to work games consoles, bluray players, televisions, etc.
    -you can connect it to a hub and run the cable to multiple components . In our bedroom we have 2 TVs, 2 BD player, 2 Xbox360. I connected the Netgear box to a hub-and plug both BD players and it is both XBox and it worked great for all four connected (although we never go more than 2 at the same time).
    -Small Size. It’s pretty tiny.

    weaknesses.
    -Small Size / Light It is not heavy enough to “sit” really good, so if you move around all of the components that start plugged in, this device expect anywhere slide <. br /> About once a month, it is connecting to the WiFi network or corresponding DNS server (which is not bad for a stay on 24-7) lose. To reconnect, you need to power the unit (unplug for 15-30 seconds and then plug back in) and / or restart your wireless router. This is better than most of the devices I’ve used, but you should keep this in mind before you install it somewhere that’s hard to reach decisions.

    Overall, I found that this very well developed (our first one we have had for almost a year without problems) and are much cheaper than alternative devices, but I think definitely a ~ $ 25 price tag slight stomach than $ 50 +. The hub option is handy if you want to connect multiple devices to a single sentence.

    Let me start off by saying that I guy techie whose Friends and family are calling to have to fix their computer.
    I bought this for a sprinkler system controller, who had only a wired Ethernet port, if I needed to add wireless.
    I bought this a renovated, since these devices have no moving parts, so they generally either work or not work and there are no motors or moving parts to go bad in them.
    I received the adapter in plain cardboard box on it with a netgear logo. It came with an Ethernet cable, power adapter, USB power adapter, a small strip of velcro and a leaflet. The adapter looked brand new except for the serial number on the back of them were made (probably in the factory, where they renovated to make it not as a new keep selling), his blackened.

    I already have a Netgear router that was able to connect out of the box simply by pressing the Connect Quick Connect button on the router and the Quick button on the wireless adapter.
    If that did for my needs, then I would, but I needed to set up the adapter with a static IP address. This is where things got a little more complicated.
    To connect to the device to make it
    to configure manually, be it directly to a computer (not a router) and open your web browser, I put the wire on my Windows 7 -. computer from the network router and plugged it into the adapter, the adapter supplied with power waited for the lights to come on and the adapter is green, then open Internet Explorer and … nothing. Wizard not and it seemed to come my PC not detecting the adapter.
    worried I was that I was a dud and beat me for buying a refurb.

    Then I remembered the number one rule of PC troubleshooting .. . Did you restart your computer?
    I restarted my computer and was very happy when the link LED on the adapter green. This time I open Internet Explorer, the wizard popped right up and I was in able to enter the settings I needed.
    I then connect the adapter to the Ethernet port connected to the sprinkler system (There is irrigation caddy, if you’re curious) bought with a smaller six-inch Ethernet cable I am here on Amazon, because I’m picky and hate long wires whole, would be sufficient if short.
    br Once I plugged it in it through its normal startup and after a short wait, I had three green lights illuminate only and willing The bottom line was:. the adapter works well with most people who have a more recent router using the Quick Connect button will not even go into the Setup Wizard to this at all, it works like a champ and. if you enter the refurb that you get it at about half price
    I would buy it again and would recommend to others

    Got the product quickly established was painless and the device works as advertised.
    We bought this for our network capable home theater system connect. The wireless router in another room, as usual, and cable runs proved too expensive and difficult. I just wish the wireless router was a bit better range, but that has nothing to do with this product. In everything. I recommend this product if your trying to avoid having to lay cables to your home cinema, Xbox, Wii or PS3 (or PC) Feel free to ask questions.

    I bought two of these TRENDnet switches (one 5-port and 8-port) if I our home network upgrade from 100 Mbps to 1 Gbps speed. I am very satisfied with its performance and stability. I did not think about it once since joining the network Both switches are connected with a D-Link DIR-655 router .. one with 100 meters of CAT-6- cable and the other with 25 feet
    This switch is not very big -. approximately the size of a paperback book I have an image to upload the product page to give you an idea of ​​the relative size of the measurement of our kill. A watt meter is true what others have already noted, this switch uses very little power the lights on the front are helpful. green shows a 1 Gbps connection while amber means a 100 Mbps connection to a measure of
    speed through the switch I get copied a 26 GB file between two computers connected. switch the same drag and drop from Windows Explorer. Average speed for the transfer was sec 102 MB / That was before enabling jumbo frames on the source and destination computers
    . This router supports jumbo frames up to 9216 bytes. in the real world performance I achieved the best performance with the computers configured for 4k frames. between two Windows 7 64-bit machine I averaged 114 MB / sec tranferring the 26 GB file. Between a Windows 7 computer and a Windows Home Server (Version 1) I averaged to enable 109 MB / sec
    jumbo frame support in Windows
    Computer, right-click and select Manage Click Device Manager, open network adapter on your adapter, right-click and select Properties under the Advanced tab, select Jumbo Frame and choose an appropriate value Note:… This applies only to cable adapters, wireless connections do not support Jumbo Frames
    I have absolutely no complaints about this switch .. It is a great value and perfect for our home network

    I’m in shock at how smooth and easy the device is working.
    I have already set up a complicated network easily, go with Cable Internet to a wireless 802.11n-only router also has four ports connect the rooms in the house, another router is broadcasting in 802.11b / g and features AirTunes functionality dedicated (it receives music broadcast over the network). I bought this unit to two computers in a room with the Network & Internet connect via Ethernet.
    Little did I realize how easy it would be.
    All I had to do was connect (any!) port to do this TrendNet switch to the wall Ethernet port and other ports on the device (any!) to the two computers in the room. Both computers immediately joined the network and Internet connectivity. As expected, the device showed the two local computers had gigabit connectivity, but only 100Mbps connectivity to the main router (in-wall wiring is not Gigabit-capable).
    Besides its zero-config juju, I also like the little rubber feet on the unit to build its solid feel of metal, the very informative LEDs and their impressive speed. ‘div style = “padding-top: 10px; clear: both; width: 100%;”>

    This router solve a digital interference problem that occurred when I plugged network AV devices to the network port of my Uverse set top box.
    I was online with a powerline network adapter connect to my network enabled DVD players, TV and home theater PC (HTPC). For video Powerline is a slow connection, even if this powerline adapter was advertised as good for video. However, I often saw that my streaming Netflix was fall back to a low-bandwidth connection, as have the powerline network adapter could not secure the necessary bandwidth for streaming HD from Netflix.
    I recently subscribed to AT & T Uverse, and I discovered that the Uverse set-top box has a network output port. So I put the HTPC in the, discovered some DSL speed tests and that the Uverse network connection was much faster than the Powerline adapters. Apparently the Uverse box it gets over the Internet connection the video coaxial cable
    . So I ordered the TrendNet router just to the internet signal from the Uverse box split all three audio / video devices. A gigabit switch is overkill for this purpose, but the price was right, and it’s nice to technical headroom as well as some future security.
    While waiting for the router to come, I left my HTPC connected directly to the network port on the Uverse box. Soon I was disappointed that, as long as the computer with the Uverse port was connected, I’d often thought digital interference (giant pixelation) on the TV shows I was watching and recording in the Uverse set-top box. “Uh-oh,” I, “which means probably TrendNet router the same kind of digital noise will cause. The documentation does not mention Uverse with the network port as a local Internet connection, so maybe it’s not really meant to be used in this way. “I ended up Disconnect all devices from the Uverse network port, because each device has to disturbances in the Uverse signal. (It is possible there was something defective in the Uverse box, of course. Pursue Did not I, with AT & T, probably have.) should
    Well I received the TrendNet router. I did not return to him, because I knew I could use it elsewhere in the house. However I decided on a whim to make it as a routers attempt box on the back of this Uverse. It worked, I was able to hook up all three devices to the network with the TrendNet as a “buffer” between Uverse router box and the AV devices have. I never digital disorders seen again, and my streaming Netflix movies always connect at the highest HD bandwidth.
    So, I do not know what is magic in this TrendNet router that solves the digital interference problem, but I’m glad did I use it for 2 months now with no problems
    no driver installation required -.. I just plugged everything and it worked perfectly the sturdy metal body is good because the router tends to be in the back of the case. get pushed and piled brings things to him, so that it is dealing with a lot of physical abuse

    This review is from: J-Tech Digital SuperSpeed ​​USB 3.0 4-Port Hub Backward compatible with USB 2.0 with USB 3.0 Cable (Electronics)

    This is a hint that applies to all USB 3.0 hubs.
    After 1.5 years with random disconnects my USB 3.0 WD external USB 3.0 drive (with or without a hub) to Windows 7,
    I recently did research and experiments again usually solve these random USB 3.0- drive separations and random hangs at shutdown / startup,
    also affect a new laptop.
    After applying Articles 1 and 2 below, these random shutdowns are much more rare and so are my related shutdown / restart hangs
    (and when a hang occurs, I know, point 3 and the slope be gone ) to do my system.

    Update: My recent Windows 7 system “Fresco” (see below) USB 3.0 Controller separations were fully resolved by updating the control
    while my older Windows 7 system “NEC” USB 3.0 controller divisions still occur (but more rarely) by updating their workarounds in a nutshell for all USB 3.0 hub / disk shutdown problems on Windows 7:
    1) Run (one time each USB 3.0 HDD): Make sure that the USB 3.0 hard drive has properties Policies “Quick removal” selected for each USB 3.0 Hard Drive
    (not “better performance”, which uses a Windows cache – a bad idea if USB 3.0 to randomly) separately.
    2) Perform a time () annually: Make sure that the USB 3.0 controller drivers up-to-date
    (Tip: do not ask Windows to find the latest drivers for download – often is not – instead, ask google).
    3) If Windows hangs at shutdown or startup, try to avoid the first USB 3.0 problems:
    draw some USB 3.0 cable from the hard drive on the way to the PC, wait until the system completely back, then plug the cable.
    shows to be proactive and prevent such is due to the USB 3.0 depends on what is connected confused
    sure My Computer (eg Explorer), the USB 3.0 hard drive is connected before a shutdown Thurs / reboot.
    4) If at any time the USB 3.0 hard drive is not shown as connected,
    draw some USB 3.0 cable from the hard drive on the way to the PC, wait 5 seconds, then plug the workarounds had no effect on Windows 7: No effect
    : setting in Control Panel-> Power Options the USB settings for the current power scheme to Disabled to “USB selective suspend setting” seems to be a good idea, but seems no effect on the USB 3.0 have shutdown problems
    No effect. disabled from startup on my older laptop nusb3mon.exe the process (which is not on the newer laptop exists).
    No Impact: Microsoft workaround ForceHCResetOnResume for all USB host controller classes (with regedit) added: google
    : A possible solution for the hub only for effective workarounds 1 and 2:
    # 1) HOWTO: Make sure that the USB 3.0 hard drive has features “Quick removal”
    selected for any USB 3.0 hard drive in order to avoid / reduce accidental disconnection of an external USB 3.0 drive to a USB 3.0 hub it seems important to make sure that the external hard drive features “Quick removal (default)” instead of “better performance” is set. Disabling the Windows 7 USB 3.0 write cache seems reliable connections and shutdown / restart not-dependent important, not the loss of data under certain circumstances mentioned. To check or set this to do this:
    – Goto Control Panel-> [System and Security>] Administrative Tools> Computer Management> Device Manager
    – Click drives
    – RClick “WD My Passport USB device …” -> Properties (or whatever your external USB 3.0 drive called)
    – click Policies tab
    – If you see “Better Performance “have chosen, then you should set this option to” Quick removal (default) “to change more reliable USB 3.0 connections, thus turning off the Windows 7 write-cache
    2 #) HowTo:. sure the USB 3.0 controller driver is up-to-date
    (Updating the driver solved the problem a laptop USB 3.0 Drive repeatedly after waking from sleep / hibernate separately).

    – Goto Control Panel-> [System and Security>] Administrative Tools> Computer Management> Device Manager
    – click Universal Serial Bus controllers
    – For each USB 3 , 0 controller (probably only be one) – look for all names that match … USB … 3 … Controller …
    – Rlick on that controller name, then click Properties
    – click Driver tab
    – Find the “Driver Version” number, which we will refer as DRVVER (eg 1.0.19.0 or 3.0.226.3)
    – Find the name of the driver (we refer as DRVNAM) … the Driver tab at the top of this
    (eg “NEC Electronics USB 3.0 Host Controller” or Read more

    There was a glitch worth mentioning anyone considering this hub. After I had been with this hub for a few days I noticed that I was not with my USB 2.0 Wireless Keyboard to get to the BIOS. Since the only change in the configuration was the attachment of USB 3.0 Hub I solved it and the BIOS recognnized the wireless keyboard as before. I found that changing the BIOS settings dealing with the legacy USB 3.0 for use Disabled (originally activated) I could have mounted the hub again and the BIOS detects the wireless keyboard at boot time. And I have not yet noticed this disadvantage. Maybe this will help someone buying this hub with a configuration similar to mine.
