I love internal computer networks. So many companies depend on them these days in their infrastructure for employees and day-to-day operations. They make transferring files around the house between computers quick and painless. They give computer fanatics the ability to kill their mate sitting next to them without physically holding any illegal black market weapon of any kind. Oh, and then there's the little thing about surfing the Internet on more than one computer at home and at work.

Now with the rollout of 802.11x products from quite a hand full of different manufacturers, improving your internal computer networks by removing the need for wires has made things only more joyful - if we forget for a minute about how insecure many wireless networks can be and the obvious reduction in transfer speeds of transferring data through the air over radio signals.

Today we've taken a whole bunch of X-Micro wireless products for a spin including their 4-port 10/100 switch with built-in DSL router and 802.11b wireless LAN as well as USB and PCMCIA 802.11b wireless LAN adapters. If you're considering networking your house, X-Micro may just have the perfect product for you. Read on and find out if this is the case or not.
