Go further with PPOE

18V 1A regulated power supply now available

This 18V power supply is ideal for PPOE over longer distances.

A higher voltage means less voltage drop over a long cable run, which means that you can get your box to work from even further away.

Our PPOE kit now also ships with this 18V power supply.

New products

Our range of miniPCI wireless cards has increased yet again, with the introduction of the low-cost Compex WLM54G 100mW and 200mW cards, also available as wireless kits.

Extra bits

World times now customisable

Our handy dandy ‘World Times’ popup is now customisable. Just click on the time in the lower left hand of any page on our website to show this surprisingly useful tool.

Click the ‘Customise’ link and select from hundreds of timezones from around the world to keep an eye on your special locations. Give them any name you like, click save, resize the window to suit, and have it all remembered.

Never have to try and figure out what time it is in Guatemala or Greenland again! Very cool.

Get started with wireless

We’ve added a page with a great introduction to wireless technology, which you’ll find under ‘Wireless’ in the menu.

On our wireless info page you’ll find a handy comparison of the popular 802.11 standards, a list of the things you’ll need to get started, and links to some useful tools, like EIRP calculators and a dBm to Watt conversion table.

We don’t claim to be experts, so please let us know if you find any errors or have suggestions for additional content.

What does this mean?

We’ve also started compiling a glossary of useful (and sometimes confusing) terms.

You’ll also find ‘What does this mean?’ links to the glossary sprinkled throughout the website and we’ll keeping adding to these over time. Just put your mouse over a word and see if it turns red, and then click to see a definition.

Please let us know if you think there’s some other terms that should be in there, or if one of our definitions is just wrong.
