Netgear WNDR3300 RangeMax Dual Band Wireless-N Router
Dual Band Wireless-N: Less Interference, Increased Range and Superior Performance
Featuring the latest dual band Wireless-N technology, the RangeMax Dual Band Wireless-N Router delivers exceptional range and speed for new Wireless-N devices while still offering backwards compatibility to older Wireless-G devices.
NETGEAR's unique multiple internal antenna technology packs eight metamaterial antennas into this wireless router. This enables wireless signals to travel farther for a stronger, more reliable wireless connection. This new technology also minimizes "dead spots" that can frustrate wireless network users.
While performance will vary according to your particular conditions, when used with other Wireless-N computers and devices, the RangeMax Dual Band Wireless-N Router can deliver up to 10 times the range of older Wireless-G routers and offer a throughput speed of up to 15 times faster.
(For optimal performance, the RangeMax Dual Band Wireless-N Router should be used with NETGEAR's RangeMax Dual Band Wireless-N Adapter or laptops with integrated Wireless-N)
Easy Set-Up with Push 'N' Connect
Setting up and connecting to the RangeMax Dual Band Wireless-N Router couldn't be easier. The router comes with a Smart Wizard installation CD that vastly simplifies the initial set-up process by automatically detecting and configuring your router for virtually all ISP connections.
And once your network is set up, the router's "Push 'N' Connect" feature takes over. To connect a new device on your network, you simply push a button on the router, and your device is automatically and securely configured and connected to your wireless network.
This means that the days of having to remember complicated security keys and passwords are over. The router also features an integrated switch that lets you attach up to four devices directly to the router.
Another notable advantage of dual band Wireless-N is that it works with up to 23 channels that operate on the 5GHz band. Wireless-G networks, on the other hand, operate on the 2.4-GHz band with only 3 channels, which is also home to some cordless phones, microwaves, and other devices that can cause interference. 5GHz Wireless-N avoids the interference that can interrupt Wireless-G networks, giving you greater reliability and performance.
And the RangeMax Dual Band Wireless-N Router "dual" nature means the router creates both Wireless-G and Wireless-N networks at the same time. So on your Wireless-N enabled computer, you'll see two networks to choose from, depending on your usage.
For instance, if you're using your network for streaming HD movies or VoIP, you can connect over the Wireless-N network and use the Wireless-G for less demanding applications, such as connecting to your printer or sending email.
And thanks to its QoS, or Quality of Service, the router will automatically prioritize its tasks according to your network's existing bandwidth and your needs. So if you're playing an online game, or streaming an HD video while someone else on your network starts downloading a large file, the router helps ensure that your games and video won't be interrupted.
Parental Controls and Security at Home
The RangeMax Dual Band Wireless-N Router offers double firewall protection that includes network address translation, or NAT, to keep you network hidden from outside users, and stateful packet inspection, or SPI, firewall to deny outside requests for personal information.
Other security measures include denial-of-service (DoS) attack prevention, intrusion detection and prevention (IDS), and Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA2-PSK, WPA-PSK). The router offers both 64-bit and 128-bit encryption as well as a wireless access control that identifies authorized wireless network devices connected to your network.
