54 Mbps Wireless Router and USB 2.0 Adapter Kit , 802.11b, 802.11g
NETGEAR's 54 Mbps Wireless Router and USB 2.0 Adapter kit gives your network a power boost in the easiest way possible. For blazing-fast 54 Mbps wireless speeds and impressive range up to five times faster than 802.11b, all you need to do is hook up this simple-to-install high-speed router and plug in the pocketknife-sized USB adapter, on either your desktop or notebook PC. The resulting higher speeds make it easy to surf the Web, download large files, videoconference, stream high-quality digital movies, and play online games. The compact USB adapter can also be carried and used in public hotspots as well, as it is interoperable with 802.11b. Double Firewall with Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI) advanced security provides maximum protection from hackers. With the highest available level of Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) and Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) encryption, you can rest assured that your wireless network communications are private. URL blocking and e-mail alerts allow parents to limit access to inappropriate web sites and monitor Internet activities.
Speeds of 802.11g - up to 5x faster than 802.11b - propel media-rich content, including video streaming, across your network at up to 54 Mbps. The compact USB 2.0 adapter, when used with the router, offers twice the range of 802.11b wireless. This wireless router also delivers four 10/100 Mbps Ethernet ports if you wish to connect a cluster of PCs to your network through cables. Existing 802.11b adapters are also interoperable with the 802.11g wireless network of the router. Dynamic rate shifting according to environmental conditions achieves the fastest possible connections.
Double firewall secures your network against hackers. Network Address Translation (NAT) conceals your networked devices from intruders. WPA and WEP encryption (40/64- or 128-bit) conceals your information from eavesdroppers. MAC Address Control prevents unauthorized access to your wireless network.
Parents can choose to monitor their children's Internet activity by applying optional time-of-day limits to web access, blocking inappropriate web sites, and opting to receive real-time e-mail alerts and logs of all network web activity.
Attractive, compact USB adapter plugs in externally, so there is no need to open your PC. Smart Wizard™ Install Assistant makes it easy to setup both your router and USB adapter. UPnP™ (Universal Plug and Play) makes it easy to use your computers, your gaming consoles, and other client devices - wireless and Ethernet - for gaming, instant messaging, and other applications, and provides cross-platform interoperability for virtually all Ethernet devices. Included 5-ft. USB cable provides flexibility to position adapter for optimal signal strength. The included cradle and velcro allows you to affix the adapter to a convenient vertical surface.
