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.
