What wireless capabilities does this router offer?
Simultaneous 2.4GHz 300Mbps and 5GHz 300Mbps supply your wireless network with more bandwidth, allowing supported devices to run at higher frequencies. This will provide more latency for your network by optimising tasks. Web browsing and e-mail can be handled by the 2.4GHz band whilst online gaming and HD media streaming can be run on the 5GHz, all at the same time. A total of five antennas will ensure that your wireless signal stays strong throughout your home.
What wired connections are provided?
Supplying you with both ADSL and WAN connections allows you to either connect directly to your phone line or extend from an existing router or modem. 10/100/1000 gigabit Ethernet ports provide fast reliable connections for all of your wired devices and stream media and transfer files across your network faster. Twin USB 2.0 ports provide connections for external hard drives or printers allowing these devices to be used across your network.
What network management does this router offer?
A web based configuration utility allows you to manage your network without the need for extra software, whilst diagnostic utilities ensure that your network is running optimally at all times. Parental controls allow you to restrict access to your network or inhibit web pages by blocking URLs, giving you piece of mind that your network is safe and secure.
