What is WiFi 802.11ac and what makes it so fast?

The new 802.11ac WiFi standard aims to give greater speed to your wireless network. Here is how it works and what are its advantages, and some compatible devices and, of course, if it really delivers what it promises.

The WLAN standards regulate the speed and type of data transmission by radio waves. Currently, the standard n (802.11n) is the most common, with speeds ranging from 150 to 600 Mbps. The new technology ac (802.11ac) increases the theoretical speed to 1300 Mbps.

However, the speed attainable in practice is significantly less.

What other advantages offers this standard?

The components used in the standard ac consume less power, which is good for battery-operated devices such as laptops, mobile phones and tablets.

DMZ: what it is, what you can use it for and how to activate it in a D-Link router

In recent years, manufacturers like D-Link have made a significant effort to make their devices simpler, adding support for technologies like DLNA or UPnP. However, sometimes you still need to access the control panel to control your network. Today we will tell you everything you need to know about the DMZ.

From a technical standpoint, DMZ is a demilitarized zone located between the internal and external networks (normally Internet). This DMZ’s function is to allow connection between the two networks, while the connections starting from the DMZ can only go to the external network; this means local devices will never be able to connect to the internal network. The next graph will show you how it works.

In the particular case of domestic routers (like the ones we will talk about), the DMZ host is the possibility of setting an IP address with every open port on the router, except for those defined in the NAT section.

TP-LINK TL-PA8010, new PLC capable of offering a bandwidth of 1 Gb/s

The PLC have been out for quite a while; these devices can use our home’s electrical wiring to, for example, transmit data without any additional installation. Most models today offer speeds of 300 Mbps, and 500 to 600 Mbps for the fastest models.

The upsides are obvious, but there are also certain downsides like the interference the electricity produces, how dependent they are on the quality of the installation or many other that can affect your device’s speed. TP-LINK has now introduced the TL-PA8010, one of the first PLC capable of offering 1 Gbps of speed.


With these speeds, and even if there are interferences or the common issues of these devices, the speed really makes you consider ditching your Wi-Fi network and instead use your home or office’s electrical wiring. The maximum range of this PLC is about 300 meters. They render the power outlet they’re connected to completely useless, though, something that can be avoided by attaching a female power plug, but this isn’t possible if you have a PA8010.

They will hit the market by the end of March, although its official release price is still unknown.
