Maximum Coverage & Bandwidth

NETGEAR's WNR834B RangeMax™ NEXT wireless router provides 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 this RangeMax™ NEXT wireless router 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

The WNR834B Wireless Router utilises a technology called 'Steady-Stream', which ensures your wireless network offers a steady constant connection, 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 WNR834B RangeMax™ NEXT wireless router is easy to set-up with NETGEAR's Smart Wizard™ install assistant and configurator. The Smart Wizard™ automatically detects your ISP's network settings, and then walks you through each step of the installation process.

The WNR834B wireless router 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.
