Review: ClickFree Wireless Backup C3 - 1/20/2011
The Clickfree Wireless Backup likely lacks the power, storage and configuration options power users often crave. However, those seeking a simple to use and configure wireless backup solution should consider the device as a solution for their needs.

Review: Infinitech Infinite USB Memory Drive - 12/19/2010
Infinitec's Infinite USB Memory Drive is an ambitious and innovative product that delivers what it promises when it works. But it's not quite reliable or consistent enough for prime time; hopefully this can be achieved with future software updates.

SMC EZ Connect 2.4GHz 11 Mbps Wireless Ethernet Adapter
Manufacturer: SMC Networks Price: $78 
Read Our ReviewAdd Your Opinion 
As wireless bridges go, the SMC EZ Connect 2.4GHz 11 Mbps Wireless Ethernet Adapter is so svelte that it could probably get lost between the cushions of a couch. Sadly, that's about all we have nice to say about the product.

Actiontec's Dual-Mode Wireless-Ready Cable/DSL Router is a competent product that is available at a reasonable price, and comes with an easy installation and 24/7 toll-free support. With the router you can network two wired PCs via ethernet or USB, and share internet access with 802.11b-compliant desktop or notebook PCs. If you can live with some of the device's limitations, Actiontec's Dual-Mode Wireless-Ready Cable/DSL router is one to consider.

It costs a bit more than the 11g-only version, but might be worth it for the easy Xbox configuration and the future-proofing 802.11a. With the WGA54AG you'll have all your bases covered.

Manufacturer: Netgear Price: $129

This 802.11g SOHO router has the potential to be quite capable, but at the moment it's hampered by firmware issues that impact range and performance.
