How do you know its GREAT ? Here are some independent Hip400 testimonials.
* Australian Personal Computer Magazine
- "If getting the most out of an Internet sharing router for the least amount of money is what you're after, the SOHOmate HiP-400S is more than up to the task."
- "Packed with features, it not only lets you connect up to broadband services from Optus and Telstra, it carries a 9 pin serial port as well, so you can attach a 56Kbit/s modem for use with standard dialup PSTN accounts."
- "What's more it's also endowed with a print server for sharing printers via its built-in parallel port."
- "If you are looking to share a dialup Internet connection with several users of a LAN, then you are better off looking at the Micronica unit (Hip-400) rather than the NetComm."
- "The SOHOmate is easily configured via a simple Web browser interface"
* Unbelievably Easy ! Took us just 3 minutes to set up. It just worked immediately. Much easier than installing the original Telstra unit. We could hardly believe it. Absolutely Amazing !
Ryan - Marshall Freeman
* The "Netgear" (other brand) was a real pain with Telstra Cable. Micronica HiP-400 worked perfectly straight away!
David L.
* Works GREAT with the old and also the new Telstra Cable Modem and Bigpond Cable service. No drop-outs all day and no issues logging on.
Max S.
* I used your Quick Installation instructions for my Mac and it worked first time. Quick and easy in less than 10 minutes.
Peter O.
* Recently I have solved a problem, put in a Micronica HiP-400 and removed a Linksys BEFXS41, issue now resolved.
Michael C.
* Mac World, Australia
- "Micronica has finally overcome the barrier of Telstra's "hearbeat" "
- "The HiP 400S works not only with Telstra's cable internet system (the one with the "heartbeat" two sizes too small), but also with the ADSL broadband system."
- "Just so non-Telstra customers don't feel left out, the HiP 400 also works with Optus's cable internet service."
* APC Magazine
- "Excellent performance and easy to configure."
- "The SOHOmate HiP-400 delivers excellent bang for buck"
- "The HiP-400 is a perfect example of function triumphing over form...it excels at doing what it is designed for."
- "packed with features that help make it more useful in a small office environment."
- "Telstra's heartbeat is supported straight from the box. So you needn't worry about connecting to the BigPond network."
- "If the modem support wasn't enough, the HiP-400 also features a print server so you can share printers via its built-in parallel port."
- "All unauthorised attempts to access your network are logged."
-"There is also VPN support, which enables multiple Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP) sessions and IPSec passthrough."
* Technology & Business Magazine
- "we were particularly impressed with this particular router, which has some very clever functions we haven't seen in other products."
- "The Micronica also has a facility for a dial-up connection, in case the broadband connection fails."
- "This router goes one step further, allowing you to expose computers to users from selected IP addresses, adding an extra level of security."
- "To sum up, we're not sure why Micronica chose to call this a SOHO router, since it has applications for businesses of many sizes."
* Dear Ed,
I thought I would let you know that the Hip400 works very well. After getting ADSL today, I connected it and it worked virtually straight away. So far so good. I had 3 computers downloading simultaneously and seemlessly. Its wonderful, just what I wanted. Thanks for you help and advice.
* ZD Net Australia Review
- "Micronica HiP-400: Easy Broadband Splitter."
* Edward, I've tested it (Print Server) from all my 3 computers and it works brilliantly!!
Robert B.
* Just letting you know that the internet sharer worked first time without any problems at all!
John F, NEC
* Just a msg to say that this is a really good product!
Haven't tried it on cable as yet but it works really well with modems - best investment I've made for a long time!
* All I had to do to get the ISDN working was a reset on the Hip400 then it worked without any issues at all. I also tried turning both the NT1+2 (Telstra ISDN TA Modem) off, the HiP400 off and the laptop. And once turned back on the ISDN was autodialing which was great.
Phillip G., Telstra
* As a convergence of functionality its tops!
Hugh A.
* The router works with iinet's ADSL service. Thanks for your help.
John F.
