Maximum Coverage and Bandwidth
When used in conjunction with NETGEAR's WNR834B RangeMax™ NEXT wireless cable router and DG834N RangeMax™ NEXT Wireless ADSL Modem Router, the WN311B desktop adapter will provide maximum coverage and bandwidth, enabling you and your entire household to simultaneously connect to multiple Internet services and online media.
To explain the capabilities of RangeMax™ NEXT wireless router and adapters further: Imagine connecting to the Internet from anywhere in the house, without a cable. Then imagine everyone in the house connecting at the same time, and all doing things online or over the network - all at the same time: Watching a Hi-Definition video or TV programme in the living room, browsing the Internet in the study, playing online games in the den, downloading MP3 music from the dining room - all at the same time. This is what RangeMax™ NEXT is capable of, all over a single home wireless network that provides a constant, 'rock-steady' connection.
Rock Steady, Constant Connection
With the RangeMax™ NEXT notebook adapter inserted, your laptop will maintain a steady, constant connection (when used in conjunction with the WNR834B Wireless Router), with sufficient bandwidth available to stream, download, browse the Internet, and transfer files all at the same time.
With RangeMax™ NEXT you should not experience any more frustrating interruptions or freezes, just a constant connection that enables you and your household to use the Internet and wireless network as you choose, whenever you choose.
Touchless Wireless Security
Touchless WiFi Security makes creating the highest level of network security easy and includes industry standard wireless encryption standards for you to choose from: WEP, WPA-PSK, or WPA2-PSK. These security features enable you to 'lock-down' your home wireless network, protecting you against unwanted intruders. For further information on securing your wireless network, please read our wireless security page.
Easy as Ever to Set-Up & Backward Compatible
As with all NETGEAR wireless products, the WN311B RangeMax™ NEXT wireless desktop adapter is easy to set-up with NETGEAR's Smart Wizard™. This RangeMax™ NEXT adapter is backward compatible with existing wireless devices, including 54 Mbps 802.11g and 11 Mbps 802.11b - but bear in mind that the coverage and bandwidth won't be as good with these devices on your home wireless network.
* "Draft 802.11n Compliant" refers to compliance with IEEE 802.11n draft specification version 1.0 only.
** Maximum wireless signal rate derived from IEEE standard 802.11n specifications. Actual data throughput will vary. Network conditions and environmental factors, including volume of network traffic, building materials and construction, and network overhead, lower actual data throughput. NETGEAR recommends that the same router and adapter type are used.
