Up to 1.5 Mbps data rate – no lag on fast Internet connections

This is 1.5 megaBITS? Or megaBYTES?

I’m assuming megabits


#6

"Up to 1.5 Mbps data rate "

WOW, Was almost going to buy these then realized that my internet comes in at 8Mbps, lame.


#7

1.5Mbps – Be aware. Otherwise could be interesting.


#8

these are perfect for LAN party’s


#9

Probably, yes. But you are going to have a power cord, so it’s not completely wireless.


#10

Anyone have any experience with these? Will it work through walls?


#11

Looks like they can be had from Ebay for around the same price… $5.00 shipping makes it a good woot…


#12

Seems like you can use anything that uses a standard ethernet cable. Although I could be wrong.

100 feet isn’t that big of a range though.


#13

Contrary to what the description says, this really shouldn’t require a broadband internet connection (or any internet connection for that matter), only a router creating a local lan. Sharing a network printer or scanner wouldn’t have anything to do with the internet connection you have.


#14

Sweet Mercy! This is exactly what I need, no more cat5 strung across the living room floor for PS2 online killing. Thanks Woot1


#15

Very interesting item… but:

  1. Is it open to hacking (hax0rs!) and exposing your wireless network;
  2. Why are there specs for a PC listed? Last time I checked, my printer and XBOX did not run Win98 or higher…

Not the worst woot, but very possibly most intriguing…

Now to find a use for it.


#16

It seems the 1.5 Mbps is a bit slow when even wireless B is 11 mbps.

For browseing the internet and playing games over the connection you should be fine, but I think you could run into problems if you want to use this to transfer files between computers.

A cool item, but not what I need.


#17

Woot’s a bit of a late riser today, eh?

Hmmmm, this would be nice if I was home with my PS2.
Buuuuuut, in Hong Kong, I am doing quite well with my brand-new PSP with its LOGITECH case.
Games:

  • Fight Night Round 3 (not as good at the 360 version, but still dang good)
  • Burnout: Legends (swoon)
  • Syphon Filter (SWOOOOON)

This is one of those things that looks totally neat, and I’d love to have for the “random parts toolbox” but I have absolutely no use at all for them…

And yet I feel myself strangely compelled to buy 2 or 3.

Darn you, woot!

$70, and well-reviewed, at Amazon:

It doesn’t appear to use a standard network protocol-- it’s not going to make your machine vulnerable although who knows if there are any security holes in whatever protocol Logitech uses for cube-to-cube communication…


#19

Not the best selling point, hardly any games with online support for it. =P

I dont really see an advantage to this for most things, since we have wireless routers for a little more than this costs.

I’ve got a GoVideo DVD player that’s networked to my computer. It’d be nice to do away with the ethernet cable stretched across the living room (no carpet to hide it under!)… but I don’t know what rate this thing streams at. I’d hate to get it and not be able to stream video to the TV, you know?
