Personally I'd like to see some more information on SANs. The whole setup, different server's used, RAID storage, fabric setup, different things of that nature.

I would like to see and know more about home networking that emphasize to online gaming as well. I'm currently playing BF2 and FEAR online 95% of the time and Im concern with the whole lag issues. I want to know what is the best set up of networking hardware and ISP that provides the fastest connection. :D

I would like further articles on network/computer security - not just overviews of the threats out there, but advice on hardware and software products designed to combat/reduce risk etc.

Other articles I would like to see sometime:
Current trends in SAN architecture - focusing on both enterprise and smaller systems.

Security product comparison - perhaps a shootout between anti-virus products/anti-spyware products/firewall, and mayabe this could be done from a consumer and business perspective.

Articles on VPN and remote access, what tools are companies actually using, their pro's and cons, how to's using the more popular tools and OS's.

BTW- Thanks for the great articles to-date, there is always some interesting reading to be found here.

I don't think you have covered VPN routers at all. It would be nice to see an article on VPN Setup and throughput of different routers, (Netgear FVS338, 538, and Dlinks). I have read some other forums on this topic and it amazing that some high power routers only have dialup speeds with VPN.

I've reviewed VPN routers in the past, but nothing recently:

and even older:

http://www.tomsnetworking.com/2002/04/30/is_there_a_vpn...
http://www.tomsnetworking.com/2002/10/14/linksys_etherf...

We're going to try to resurrect this area soon. It will be interesting to see if or how fast IPsec/PPTP endpoint routers get displaced by upcoming low-cost SSL VPN boxes like this one:

It's supposed to be "aggressively" priced, but we'll see!

Agree with Chuck. I want more stuff on lower pings, best routers for gaming, any internal router settings, QoS, that kind of stuff.

I said something else because a couple options would go together. I want to see reviews of all possible wired and wireless routers that are high end, not just the cheap crummy soho ones you find from linksys, belkin, dlink and so on. I'm talking business enterprise class firewall appliances etc. They can range anywhere from $125-$1000 I spose. The second part would be product comparisons. So it's 3 of your options actually. Wired/Wireless/Product compariosn all together, but using high end appliances and routers, not only the cheap soho ones.. Reason is that there's so many out there it's impossible to choose when looking and I'm looking, but have no clue because there's no info on most.

more advance networking

August 18, 2011 6:21:02 PM

I'd like to see more on home networking and media sharing over a home network.
November 2, 2012 11:25:16 AM

They should have an area where people can rant on about how much they hate certain devices, software, OSes etc. :sol:

Open Source media sharing. I would love to have RasberryPI style mini-comps to plug into a TV and access a central media collection.
