The Bad

- Weak internet sharing software

The need for networking has clearly expanded beyond just large businesses. Today, more and more families have multiple PC's at home and small businesses are seeing the advantages of having an internal network. Much of the motivation is the ability to share a single internet connection among multiple computers.

D-Link, the largest manufacturer of hubs in the world and second in network cards, has seen this need in the networking market and answered with a number of networking kits. Their latest is the DFE-910 10/100 Network In A Box, which is specially targeted at the home and small office markets.
