For those bemoaning the lack of network support on last year's innovative Drobo drive, DroboShare offers Gigabit Ethernet and as simple and straightforward a setup as we found with the direct-attached Drobo.

Trendnet Wireless N-Draft PC Card
The Trendnet Wireless N-Draft PC Card seems like a compelling choice for your notebook PC, but we recommend waiting until the 802.11n spec is finalized before choosing an adapter.
Buffalo AirStation Nfiniti wireless notebook adapter
While the Buffalo AirStation Nfiniti notebook adapter made a good showing in mixed-mode throughput testing, we still think it's too early to invest in Draft N technology.
D-Link RangeBooster N 650 notebook adapter
While the D-Link duo performed admirably overall compared to its draft N competition, we were unimpressed with how it measured up to the promise of 802.11n.
Belkin N1 Wireless Notebook Card
The Belkin N1 adapter is a little better than the competition, but that's not saying much. Hold off on buying Draft N networking equipment for now.
If you plan to sit within 10 feet of your WRT54GX4 router, you'll get satisfying throughput. But if you want an adapter that's faster than standard 802.11g, opt for the Belkin Pre-N, which shows more consistent performance.
Netgear RangeMax WN511B adapter
Though the Netgear WN511B notebook adapter is an overall decent performer, its times are still fall far short of the scorching speeds promised by the new draft-N standard. Don't jump on the draft N bandwagon just yet.

Linksys WPC300N Notebook Adapter
Solid maximum throughput is not nearly enough to make us recommend the Draft N-based Linksys WPC300N. Sit tight to see how the other Draft N gear fares.
Netgear WPNT511 RangeMax 240
If your priorities don't include long-range connectivity, then by all means get the somewhat ironically named Netgear WPNT511 RangeMax 240 wireless notebook adapter for its record-breaking short-range speeds.
Belkin Wireless G Plus MIMO Notebook Card
The Belkin Wireless G Plus MIMO Notebook Card can't compete with another member of Belkin's wireless-adapter family, the Pre-N PC Card, but it compares decently with other pre-802.11n/MIMO adapters and kills the plain 11g competition.
