* Australian Personal Computer Magazine
- "indoors it never dropped below 11Mbit/s, and was accessible from a park
30m across the road, which is fairly good in our book."
- "when we connected the Micronica to a PPPoE DHCP Telstra BigPond cable
account the unit worked as advertised."
- "Simply connect the printer to the unit, install some drivers on your PC,
and you're printing."
- "...the Micronica unit would be perfect for use on a home LAN or small
- "A four-port switch and firewall/router with an added print server - this is perfect for the SOHO user who has expandability in mind."
- "Its expandability, rugged construction and versatility make it a worthy
contender for your hard-earned dollars."
It works great. Easy to set up and the distance on the router to a machine
is great also. We've got it set up from one side of the office to the next
which is about 20 metres...excellent.
