for Hardware One
With two computers in my room and another in the study room,
the notion to set up a network in the house has always been one that was begging to be
obeyed. Whether it was to engage in multiplayer games within the confines of my room, the
ease in which I could transfer files (especially those that I just downloaded) between the
computers or the inexplicable "high" of owning my very own network, I was
finally driven to acquire a networking solution.
With D-Link being the reputable networking figure in the
market , it wasn't surprising that I chose a product from them to answer this call. I
decided to try the D-Link DFE-905 networking kit. You can access D-Link's website at www.dlink.com.
However, at the time of this review, I was unable to access the website. There's an
alternative Canadian website at this location.
D-Link has always produced cost effective NICs and
hubs of high quality. There are other brands in the market offering affordable and
reliable networking kits such as SOHOware and 3Com. My decision in choosing D-Link was
merely a personal one.
