D-Link DCS-5222L

If you’re yearning for a pan/tilt information processing camera for security functions, however you don’t want the top-shelf performance and style options that drive the value of a lot of business-centric models just like the Axis M5014 on the far side 5 bills, the $250 (as of August five, 2012) D-Link DCS-5222L is price thought. The D-Link model offers several of a similar options because the Axis camera will, at [*fr1] the value. It conjointly boasts a few of options that the Axis lacks: night-sight and two-way audio.

D-Link’s camera delivers sensible color fidelity, however this image appearance fuzzier than we have a tendency to expected from associate degree “HD” camera.So what does one quit in exchange? Video quality, for starters. though the DCS-5222L delivers 1280-by-720-pixel resolution—just because the Axis M5014 does—video from the D-Link camera appearance abundant fuzzier. The DCS-5222L is additionally a lot of prone to change of state, since its lens and pan/tilt mechanism area unit unprotected. And anyone WHO desires to forestall the D-Link camera from recording want solely pull out its MicroSD card; in distinction, Axis place the M5014’s card slot on very cheap, wherever it’s inaccessible once the camera is mounted.

DLink Support for Non-Technical Users

I recently helped a person who had a new DIR-655 and was not really an IT person, so I only had a working knowledge of networks.

I was having problems getting your 655 to connect via PPPoE and it turns out he had made an assumption about how the routers that was not true, but it was a pretty easy assumption to make if not exactly understand how routers work with PPPoE.

What really bothers me about this situation was that DLink demanded money to support it. There is something fundamentally wrong with how customers DLink support here. Selling a highly technical device for the average home user, usually non-technical. Therefore, it is fully expected that some users struggle that they were created.

DLink unreasonably expect the lame manual will be enough for any normal person to follow and if not, they will demand money from them to explain what is configured correctly. They are making money with customers who buy its products again and again to explain to customers how to use their products.

I think it just stinks of greed. Some users just do not understand, naturally, and must be trained. Its products are designed for home, they will get IT DO NOT BUY PRODUCTS FROM YOUR TOWN and it should offer support for free.

Basically, if you’re an average home user, DO NOT BUY DLINK as routers need a certain level of IT skills to set and if you do not, DLink demand money from you to help with their routers.

Better off looking for a company that is willing to support IT illiterate consumers free of charge. If you know of one, post a comment.

D-Link Xtreme N DIR-855 Router

D-Link Xtreme N DIR-855 is a router / access point is compatible with the final 802.11n standard for wireless networks. The D-Link device is one of the most advanced and sophisticated access points available in the market is able to operate simultaneously on the frequencies of 2.4 GHz (typical of standard 802.11 b / g) and 5 GHz provided by the new 802.11 n standard . The result is a higher bandwidth, less interference and also the ability to customize the routing of data packets. In essence, it is possible to separate the wireless network depending on the applications used: for example, you can route packets of the VoIP traffic video / audio over 5GHz and leave the 2.4GHz band for Internet browsing, instant messaging programs and e-mail.

D-Link Xtreme N DIR-855 has three high-gain antennas are compatible with MIMO technology provided by the 802.11 n standard, which can be oriented to suit your needs: it even allows you to install the unit on the wall. Outwardly D-Link Xtreme N DIR-855 features a sleek, houses on top of an OLED display that graphically summarizes the operating parameters and provides access to many of the functions of the device. On the back of D-Link Xtreme N DIR-855 connectors are four RJ-45 LAN, a WAN port for connecting to an ADSL modem or router and a USB port. The performance of D-Link Xtreme N DIR-855 are very good: the device is able to achieve a total bandwidth of 600 Mbps derived from the sum 300 + 300 Mbps of bandwidth on each of the theoretical frequencies.

D-Link makes home Wi-Fi routers greener

D-Link has introduced green technologies to its range of home Wi-Fi routers.

With D-Link Green Ethernet Technology and Wi-Fi scheduling, the new routers can save up to 41% of the power consumption of a standard wireless router.

The Xtreme N line of routers is being shipped with D-Link Green Ethernet technology, which saves energy by automatically detecting link status and network cable length, and adjusting power accordingly, along with Wi-Fi scheduling that the customer to program when the Wi-Fi signal is turned on to further reduce power consumption.

Harrison Albert, regional sales director, D-Link Middle East said: “D-Link is working to take the lead in integrating innovative, power-saving technology into our home and business networking solutions that doesn’t sacrifice performance or functionality. By offering green upgrades to some of our most popular Wi-Fi routers, we’re helping protect the environment while our customers save money in the process.”

The new technology is part of a green computing initiative by D-Link, which also includes compliance with standards on for energy consumption and use of materials, and consumer education and recycling program.
