  • Extend Wii's WiFi Range

    We know how it goes. You wait in line, punch preteens, and eat those nasty mall pretzels until finally your shiny new Wii is in your hands. You get it home, set it up, are all ready to really tackle the world of console online gaming, then pow! You realize your WiFi connection isn’t powerful enough to reach your living room from your mom’s basement. Lucky for you, we’ve got… Read More

  • Zune File Transfer in Action

    Gizmodo has some hot video video of one Zune sending another Zune a song. It takes about 30 seconds for a 2 minute song, which isn’t bad at all. Too bad it’s three play/three day DRM nonsense, folks, or else this would be Zune’s iPod-killing feature. MS says they’ll be improving on this in time, so we’ll see.

  • Britain's Tovo Debuts GSM/WiFi Handset for the Masses

    <img src="http://tctechcrunch2011.files.wordpress.com/2007/01/WiFi phone. That's Tesco, it's a supermarket. And somehow it got its mits on this little bugger as an exclusive for now. It's a standard (if somewhat fugly) GSM phone, even including a camera. But the WiFi chipset is what makes this handset stand out. Not because it's the first or only GSM/WiFi phone… Read More

  • USB WiFi Dongle with Integrated Hotspot Finder

    . E-Let, a Japanese gear house, knows this. It also realizes that those of us who choose to be mobile require as little encumbrance as possible, thus the love of converged devices. That line of thought went on to produce this combo WiFi finder/WiFi USB dongle it offers in Japan under the WiFiWalker brand. The smallish LCD readout on the front gives you signal strength and other information… Read More

  • Zune to Pay You Back for Sharing Songs?

    What would a day on CrunchGear be like without at least one totally unconfirmed but juicy rumor? Our spies are going into overtime as the deadline for the Zune approaches (that’s November 14, chuckleheads). Though this is something we’ve heard before, we’ve now got a second source that independently mentioned the same idea, which gives us a clue to it having some weight… Read More

  • New Orleans Municipal WiFi Going Dark

    What bullshit! Not surprising, but ridiculous nonetheless. Ars Technica just reported that the city-wide New Orleans Municipal WiFi will soon be shutdown in favor of a pay service from Earthlink. Apparently Earthlink will continue to offer 128kbps wireless for free for “as long as the city is rebuilding.” This was a great idea that was castrated early-on by laws that are overly… Read More

  • D-Link V-Click: The Next Generation Phone

    The D-Link V-Click is an unlocked GSM phone with built-in WiFi that essentially paves the way for mass market phones like, drumroll please, the iPhone. D-Link isn’t in the “business” of making and selling phones, obviously, which is what makes this tri-band device so interesting. It costs about $599.99 and can receive email, has a web browser and a single button for… Read More

  • Asus Guarantees 802.11n Final Compatibility Through Free Upgrades

    The major concern about buying draft 802.11n cards and routers is that they won’t be compatible with the final specification once that’s out in late 2007 or 2008. Asus puts your mind at rest with their new guarantee that their WL-500W and WL-100W “Intensi-fi” routers will be upgradeable to the final spec using Firmware or hardware upgrades. This means for any… Read More

  • HP Puts WiFi in Your TV

    HP to Apple: iTV is for suckers. Why, wouldn’t it be easier to build WiFi and a media browser into a TV than require a stand-alone set-top box? Sure, sure, the DVR functionality that may or may not exist might be a sticking point, but if you’re planning on downloading and playing back video from your PC to your TV, why not cut out the middleman? That’s the promise behind the… Read More

  • Sony Adds Wireless LCD to LocationFree TV

    You might recall a few weeks ago, we brought you news of Sony’s new LocationFree TV boxes. These fancy boxes allow you to take your analog or digital cable feed and send it via IP to your laptop or desktop, so no matter where you are, you can watch the TV you’re paying for. Sony is adding your location to LocationFree with the new LF-12MT1 LCD. In simplest terms, the 12MT1 is a… Read More

  • QuickerTek Doubles MacBook Signal Strength

    QuickerTek has released a WiFi Transceiver that will allegedly double the signal strength of a MacBook Pro. Although that is a respectable gain, the transceiver utilizes an AC adapter which effectively limits portability. Adapters are the bane of laptop users, and the fact that this device utilizes one makes it a bit undesirable. Now if you thought that the fact that it’s powered by a… Read More
