Dual-band support lets you optimize wireless coverage

  • Wireless router works in both 2.4GHz and 5GHz radio bands.
  • Both bands support Wireless-N, for better wireless performance.


    Dual-band support lets you optimize wireless coverage

    • Wireless router works in both 2.4GHz and 5GHz radio bands.  Use the 2.4GHz band to connect wirelessly to many devices like game consoles, Internet enabled HDTVs, Blu-ray players, notebooks, DVRs and more. Or use the less crowded 5GHz band to avoid interference with devices like cordless phones, microwave ovens, and other 2.4GHz networks.
    • Both bands support Wireless-N, for better wireless performance.  Wireless-N (802.11n) technology can offer higher data speeds, when used with other Wireless-N devices. It can also provide greater range, for more complete coverage throughout your home. Supports Wireless-G, -B and -A (802.11a/b/g) devices as well.
    • Enhanced features help keep your network secure.  A powerful Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI) firewall helps protect you from Internet hackers by keeping track of the state of your network connections. Supports strong wireless encryption protocols such as Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA), Wi-Fi Protected Access 2 (WPA2) and Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP. Setup is as easy as pushing a button.
    • 4-port 10/100 Ethernet switch lets you connect your wired devices, too.

    Rated 3 out of 5�by Installation Instructions wrong After trying for 2 days to get it set up, I had to call the 800 number and they walked me through setting it up. The instructions that was on the set up disk did not show the connection that the 800 number person had me do. Very frustrating. November 6, 2015
