Netgear intros two new home routers, one 3G WWAN router

Netgear's dropping a bunch of new kit here at CES, so we'll get right to the networking piece here. First up is the RangeMax Dual Band Wireless-N modem / router (DGND3300), which integrates an ADSL2+ modem with a 2.4GHz and 5GHz wireless router. Following that is the RangeMax Dual Band Wireless-N Gigabit Router (WNDR3700), which is the first product to introduce the outfit's fifth-generation industrial design. It's also packin' 2.4GHz / 5GHz support along with an inbuilt USB port for hooking up a wireless printer. Finally, the 3G Mobile Broadband Wireless Router (MBR624GU) does exactly what it says, which is to create a WiFi hotspot by plugging in a USB 3G modem. No prices are mentioned for any of these, but they should be in stores here shortly.


Routers and Gateways
At CES, NETGEAR will debut three sleek, versatile, feature-rich wireless routers to fulfill the unique
lifestyle needs of different customer segments - for people on-the-go as well as consumers and
prosumers looking to upgrade their network environments and take full advantage of a growing number
of bandwidth-hungry applications, online gaming, and HD video streaming. Also in 2009, in partnership
with OpenDNS®, NETGEAR will introduce a powerful network-based parental controls service for select
Wireless-N routers and gateways, to enable parents to restrict access to unsafe web sites, filter
inappropriate content, and establish time limits around the use of the Internet. (See press release,

Named "Best of Innovations" in the CES Home Networking category, NETGEAR's RangeMax Dual
Band Wireless-N Gigabit Router (WNDR3700), the first product to introduce NETGEAR's sleek new
fifth generation industrial design, is a simultaneous Dual Band 2.4 GHz and 5GHz wireless router with
Gigabit ports and a USB port to network an external USB storage device for high speed data access from
multiple computers in the network. It incorporates a powerful 680 MHz MIPS processor, high
performance power amplifiers and eight ultra sensitive metamaterial antennas – resulting in faster wired
to wireless throughput and long range wireless coverage. Features include a four-port Ethernet low power
consumption "green" switch, dedicated Quality of Service (QOS) for video streaming over wireless, one-

touch wireless on-off and power on-off buttons, and adjustable transmit power for maximum energy
efficiency. Along with easy and secure Push 'N' Connect with industry standard WiFi Protected Setup
(WPS), the RangeMax Dual Band Wireless-N Gigabit Router is the ideal solution for the prosumer with
multiple networked gadgets running multiple applications, online gamers, and video streamers that
require the ultimate network experience.

NETGEAR's RangeMax Dual Band Wireless-N Modem Router (DGND3300) integrates an ADSL2+
modem along with a Dual Band Wireless Router operating at both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz – all in
NETGEAR's popular compact industrial design. NETGEAR's modem router uses double firewall
protection including Network Address Translation (NAT), hiding PCs and files from outside users, and a
Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI) firewall denying outside requests for personal information. The Dual
Band Wireless-N Modem Router can also be configured as a wireless repeater to double the range. With a
new multi-language installation wizard, Push 'N' Connect with WPS, and energy saving features, the
modem router is perfect for DSL customers who want a single integrated wireless router and DSL modem
device for all of their growing networking needs.

And for consumers and professionals on-the-go, NETGEAR's 3G Mobile Broadband Wireless Router
(MBR624GU) creates an instant WiFi hotspot using 3G mobile broadband access service for broadband
access virtually anywhere, simply by plugging in any compatible 3G USB modem to the router. Mobile
users thus have the flexibility to create a WiFi network whether in a satellite or temporary office,
construction site, emergency center, hotel, vacation home, at an offsite event or campsite, or even from a
moving recreational vehicle. The 3G Mobile Broadband Wireless Router features auto detection of
compatible 3G USB modems and associated mobile carrier networks to have broadband access almost
instantly. It supports SPI, intrusion logging and reporting, denial-of-service (DoS) protection, up to five
IPsec VPN endpoints, and NAT. With Push 'N' Connect with WPS, energy saving features, and an
optional car power adapter to power the router while on the move, NETGEAR's 3G Mobile Broadband
Wireless Router is ideal for sharing a 3G broadband Internet connection with friends, colleagues and
