Product Review of the Month

The UltraWAP-N300 - Media Server Problem Solved

At home I have a fairly complex setup as far as home entertainment is concerned.  I have a server that I've built and setup to transcode media on the fly - that is, take a media file and pull it apart and re-encode it into a basic format that is readable by the remote node in real time.  The server requirements were easily met, however getting the data to the devices that will be playing the media was the hard part. 

My house was not smart wired, and I'm not a fan of trenching walls to put in cabled points on internal walls - especially when there are alternatives. I have tried a simple 802.11b/g link, however the throughput and stability was not adequate due to the re-encoded data being almost purely raw which is truly massive.  I attempted implementation of 200 megabit EoP devices. This required a rewire of half my house in order to get any decent speed, and this was not enough - an expensive exercise. 

Finally i decided to try a Wireless N Ultrawap-N300 bridge. This overcame issues I was encountering with other devices very easily - there was a lot of power between one end of my house and the other that was destroying speeds on the 802.11b/g link, however with the wireless N bridge I get almost full speed and have no issue streaming media - better still, I have no issue streaming full High Def 1080 media! 

The link is rock solid and in the 4 months operation has not required reboot or lost power or link at all.  For a cheap super effective solution, I have been very impressed!  Not a challenging WiFi deployment, but the one that has made the most difference for myself.
