    Netgear’s routers and switches can solve networking hassles unique to your home

    I have a rather complicated home network. Its usage has skyrocketed in recent years, as the kids are always on Wi-Fi and somebody is always watching over-the-top services like Netflix while I play networked console or PC games. The number of devices we use that connect to the Internet has also gone …

    Netgear announces two new Orbi routers

     I’m a huge fan of the Netgear’s Orbi routers. They offer some of the easiest setup, highest speeds, and best coverage of any of the so-called mesh wireless systems including Eero and Luma.

     I’m rarely this excited about a wi-fi router. I’ve used Apple gear for years now, replacing Airport after Airport until I found I hit a wall. My house is made of wood, brick, and lathe with a little horsehair and metal sheeting thrown in so I was unable to get good Wi-Fi throughout. I ran powerline…

    Netgear’s new baby monitoring camera arrives dressed like a bunny

     Netgear really likes to show a slide from NPD every time it announces a new Arlo product. It did a few months back when it showed off its new security cameras and it’s doing so again with its latest reveal.
