Networking section is now online.
We are pleased to announce the release of "Network in a Box", a product designed to bring the ease-of-use for which RISC OS is famed, to the complex-seeming world of Networking.
By providing everything you need to get going, combined with manageably-sized step-by-step guides covering each aspect, it has never been simpler to get your computers talking to each other for file sharing, printer sharing and internet sharing.
The price for the kit is 299ukp inclusive of VAT and delivery. This is actually significantly cheaper than buying the components individually, and also includes technical support. We are using quality, branded components, thereby ensuring confidence in the product(s) purchased.
The unit is designed with broadband cable internet access in mind, and also works happily with standard 56k modems and ISDN. Note that until BT introduce their "DIY" ADSL service country-wide (it is available in some areas already), it is not suitable for ADSL.
The product has come about because a large number of people now have multiple computers (be they RISC OS or Windows) in the home. They are sick and tired of endless switch boxes, removable media and the "are-you-using-the-internet- on-the-other-machine-or-can-I-use-it-now" syndrome. Many people know that a network is the answer, but everything appears so complex, and no-one seems to provide support/ explanations of "the whole thing".
"Network in a box" solves this by providing you with a
complete solution, backed up by support and manuals covering
the whole process.
We feel it is important for you to discuss your requirements
with us prior to purchase, and in this regard we are not
simply adding "Network in a box" to our website. You should
phone us (or email, but phone is very much preferable!) on
01925 755043. This will enable us to ensure that we
provide you with the right kit for your situation.
