DustX Fights Dust Inside PCs, Patents Innovation

DustX Computer Dust Solutions decided to patent their Peel-and-Stick Computer Air Filter that is claimed to protect PC internals from dust. The product is a hybrid of fibrous nonwoven fabric and adhesive tape.

All you have to do is cut out a needed shape, remove protective film and attach the filter onto the enclosure. The company recommends that you replace old filters every 3-6 months depending on the amount of dust.

A pack of 3 filters sized 15õ15cm costs $10, but right now first buyers get a discount and pay $7.95.

D-Link Ships New DHP-303 Powerline Adapter Kit

D-Link today introduced its next-generation PowerLine adapter kit for connecting computers, high-definition media players, game consoles, network attached storage, and Internet content throughout the home.

With the new D-Link PowerLine HD Ethernet Adapter Starter Kit (DHP-303) anyone can take advantage of existing home electrical wiring to create or extend a network. The kit includes two PowerLine wall plugs/adapters. The DHP-303 turns every power outlet in the home into a wall-to-wall network for connecting when connected to a switch or wireless access point.

With simple plug-and-play installation, the DHP-303 is well-suited for connecting an Ethernet-enabled digital media device such as TiVo or Slingbox to the home network and the Internet. It also allows users to connect gaming consoles like the Xbox 360, Playstation 3 or Nintendo Wii to the Internet. The device will automatically be displayed in Microsoft Windows Vista's Network Map. Users also can check the DHP-303's performance via a built-in LED.

The PowerLine Adapter, with simple push-button activation, implements Triple Data Encryption Standard (3DES) for securing connections and keeping data safe from intruders. To create a secure connection the user simply pushes a button on one adapter, then goes to another room and pushes a button on the other adapter. It also offers Quality of Service (QoS) support to help prioritize data and enable smooth video streaming and lag-free gaming.

Key features:

  • Uses home's existing electrical wiring
  • Streams HD media across the network
  • Up to 200Mbps* throughput
  • Connects computers, game consoles and multimedia devices to the Internet
  • Plugs into existing power outlets
  • QoS support helps prioritize Internet traffic
  • Extends wireless LAN by connecting an access point to achieve stronger wireless signals in remote areas
  • Supports enhanced network security
  • Simple plug-and-play installation
  • Power-saving mode
  • Simple push-button security
