PCHome Editor's Choice Award
USRobotics MAXg Wireless Router USR805461 "Tune in your wireless" Review, "Robot Dream" , "And the Winner is..."

"All these products are suitable for setting up wireless networking in a home or small office. Not all are as suitable if you want to be able to browse and swap files from the end of the garden, though. Speed and coverage are key, here, with ease of use a close third. We'd recomend US Robotics kit for out and out performance, feature set and easy setup..."

125 Mbps Wireless MAXg

USR5461, USR5411: PC World – August 2005
"Our tests revealed that no single product--or type of MIMO--consistently outshone the others. In fact, the winner of our close-range and midrange tests was the non-MIMO USRobotics line."

MAXg: Computer Shopper (UK) - October 2005
"Unlike proprietary MIMO routers, the MAXg router complies with the 802.11g standard, so you should benefit from the extended range with existing wireless kit"

USR5461: Webuser (UK) – July 7, 2005, Page 2
“If you’re on the lookout for new Wi-Fi gear, US Robotics’ MAXg range is going to do the business, especially if you’re considering starting something of a collection.”

USR5461: PC Answers (UK) - October 2005

54 Mbps Wireless Networking

USR5470: Network World – June 13, 2005
“The wireless router reached farther in my house than any others I’ve tried except specialized high-gain units. From the office in one corner of the first floor, I still received a weak but usable signal in the kid's playroom in the far corner of the second floor. No other general wireless router/card combo has done that, especially with security enabled.”


USR8200: Hardware Firewall – PC Plus (UK) – June
“You can get a router with a firewall for around £70, but this box does offer valuable extras on both the security front and in its feature set. It’s worth its asking price and the peace of mind it provides”
