ITExpo 2002 Coverage - ITExpo 2002 Coverage - Page 8

Recently we had the chance to visit one of Australia's largest computer exhibitions, ITExpo. Unfortunately, being located in Australia means that our computer exhibitions don't get visited by the likes of Bill Gates or Craig Barret, and many of the products displayed are not ground breakingly new. Nevertheless, it is usually a great day out and there are always one or two surprises. Join Asher "Acid" Moses as he determines if ITExpo has got what it takes to compete with the likes of Taiwan's Computex and USA's COMDEX.

- Netgear

 

 

Netgear is based in the USA and was founded in 1996 by Patrick Lo and Mark Merrill. They specialize in creating networking solutions for homes and small businesses world wide. The first thing we looked at while visiting Netgear's stand were their rackmountable FS516 and FS524 switches. The FS516 features 16 ports, while the FS524 has 24 ports. They both feature an auto uplink/uplink port, internal power supply, metal enclosure, port LEDs and come with a five year warranty. These are not really directed at the home user, but are ideal for an office or small business.

 

 

Netgear also had some cable/DSL routers on display as well as a desktop switch and a wireless router. The cable/DSL router pictured below is the FV318 model that comes with an integrated 8-port switch, the smaller desktop switch is the 5-port FS105 model and the wireless router is their new MR314 model with a built-in 4-port switch and wireless IEEE 802.11b access point.

 

 

Also on display were some of Netgear's new network adapters as well as an interesting 10mbps USB network adapter.
