Securifi Almond Review

Securifi Almond - World's 1st Touch Screen Wireless N Router + Range Extender + WiFi Bridge

My initial feeling about the Securifi Almond was that it would be a low-quality router by an unknown company – using its touchscreen gimmick to make sales. Upon further examination I realized my mistake – Securifi has put together an all-around great multi-purpose wireless device, and the touchscreen is merely a bonus. It has received a lot of positive attention – good signal quality, easy to setup and good customer service. The wireless repeater mode works very well, giving a solid boost to your network’s range. From the very beginning the touchscreen interface helps you set up the device in whichever mode you want, detects your existing wireless network and walks you through any configurations you need to make.

Securifi Almond Features:

  • b/g/n support
  • Multiple modes: Wireless Router, Wireless Access Point, Wireless Repeater and Wireless Bridge
  • Two Ethernet connectors
  • Built-in touchscreen router management panel

Pros:

  • So easy to configure, it doesn’t even ship with a manual
  • Good compatibility with other wireless brands (for repeater and bridge mode)

Cons:

  • No 5GHz support on Wireless-N

TP-Link WL TL-WA901ND Review

Wireless Repeater TP-Link WL TL-WA901NDIf you’re after a wireless networking tool with multiple capabilities, the TP-Link WL TL-WA901ND is a great choice. This will work magnificently for your wireless repeating needs, and if you end up needing it for something else in the future it’s pretty much guaranteed to be up for the task.

Also notable is its comparatively low price for its functionality.
