With the RangeMax Wireless Router, your whole house becomes a "hot spot." NETGEAR's exclusive RangeMax technology gives you the longest range of any wireless device on the market today - up to 10 times the wireless coverage of 802.11g. So you'll have a sizzling-fast, consistent connection in every room of your house ... and beyond.Put the NETGEAR RangeMax Wireless Router to work for you, and that's all you need - leave those range extenders, repeaters, and external antennas at the store. RangeMax adjusts to the interference and physical barriers in your home, and delivers up to 500, 000 square feet of coverage - 1000% more than 802.11g. And you don't need to throw away your old wireless devices; RangeMax is 100% compatible with your existing 802.11b/g products and will boost their range and speed by up to 50%.RangeMax is an advanced Smart MIMO (Multi-In, Multi-Out) technology that uses seven internal antennas. RangeMax constantly surveys your home environment for physical barriers and interference and adjusts the wireless signal to compensate for these performance blockers. For example, if you carry your laptop from the family room to the bedroom, RangeMax automatically senses the change and selects from over 100 possible antenna configurations to deliver you the fastest, clearest connection! Everyone will enjoy consistently high-speed connections, everywhere in your house - no drop-outs, and no dead spots.Think you can't set up your wireless router without an engineering degree? Think again. NETGEAR's SmartWizard makes the set-up easy and hassle-free. SmartWizard automatically detects your ISP's network settings, then walks you through each step of the installation process. It's like having your own computer technician, right by your side.NETGEAR also ensures that every computer user in your home network can work and play safely - with a double firewall, WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy), and WPA-PSK (Wi-Fi Protected Access, Pre-Shared Key) Security, your network will have powerful safeguards against unauthorized usage.

I have had this router for my laptops for almost 2 years now.

It's fab, has never let me down and the blue lights in the top dome sure are purdy :-D (can of course be turned off if they cause distraction...)

Great deal, nice bit of kit, voted hot. :thumbsup:

I have a Virgin home connection, can this device send internet from my tower pc to my Acer Netbook.....?

Yes, shouldn't be a problem.

"RangeMax is 100% compatible with your existing 802.11b/g products "
I have a Wireless Netgear DG844G Router (and get great signal in all but one room and the patio)...will this be compatible?
Tnx

Is the DG844G a router or is it a modem (Tried to find it on the netgear site but couldnt).If its a modem then yes this is compatable.If its a router then you will be replacing it with the above router.If your wondering if your older wireless receivers will still work then yes they should.

Hope that helps :thumbsup:

You want to use a second router in conjunction with your current router?

EDIT: Also, I think you mean DG834G. This is an ADSL modem router.

I'm posting this because I was interested, but not sure it will do for me...

From Amazon "expert"...This router is designed to work with cable broadband suppliers (such as NTL & Telewest) and therefore will not support PPPoA as they don't use that protocol. However if you want PPPoA to use with a BT phone line, you need the Netgear model DG834PN - the ADSL Modem Router. This does support PPPoA and will work with any broadband that uses a BT phone line. I have used both Netgear & Belkin products, so I know what I'm talking about.

My current router seems to be PPPoA which suggests I shouldn't buy this model?

Most of that is crap. I realise that it wasn't you who wrote it though, Carlos007. "I have used both Netgear & Belkin products, so I know what I'm talking about. " - what a tit.

The Netgear WPN824 is a gateway router and supports PPPoA and PPPoE connections.

If you're an ADSL user (broadband through your phone line rather than cable), you'll need an ethernet modem to use in conjunction with this unit.

So this is ok to use with my sky box?

Sky TV box? Yes.

Thanks for advice - appreciated - it has though, by the way of a complete tangent, prompted me to move my connections around the house just now - I seem to be getting a better signal all around! So result via another method!

Sorry I meant is this ok to use to boost the pathetic signal from my sky modem?

Hi, I have a slightly ageing DG834GT 108mbps router - can I buy this one as a replacement/backup? Just asking as don't have cable.

Thanks

Cracking deal for a Router, let alone a Range-Max!

HOT!

Sorry qwerta, still a bit confused with the techie terms....does my wireless DG834G suffice then?

I've got a couple of dead spots in my house (its a big old granite beggar).

Is this likely to improve things & get rid of my dead spots?

Well the thing is ladyluck that if you buy this you are also going to need to buy a modem to go with it,what you have is all those in one so theres really no point in you buying it.Stick with what you have if its not broken.

Its a bit like saying you can buy a car complete (Which is what you have) or you can buy a car without the wheels but you will have to buy the wheels extra which will give you....a car!

Should indeed do if you set it as an access point (Which in the netgear settings i have for a different modem/router is very easy to do).But sadly with some of the better built older houses (thick stone etc) its going to be more of a finding the right place to improve the signal but worth a go at this price.

I have got one of the MIMO set ups and they are an improvement on a standard modem.Basically in lay mans terms it sends out a number of wireless signals in varying directions so if one gets blocked possibly another can get around the problem (At least thats what the guy at the local comp store told me) so you should see an improvement in coverage.

Can this be configured to work just as a wireless access point? I'm after one but they're not particularly cheap - unlike this!

would this be much better than a NETGEAR WGT624 ,will it work fine with ps3,wii and xbox360

I have a BT home hub, the latest one. Would this router do as an "upgrade" ??
Im using ethernet from my homehub to my computer if that makes any difference...?

In theory its meant to give a better coverage so only really better if you are finding a lot of dead spots in your house.No idea regarding consoles though as i dont have one.

Great router in every way. Had it for 6 months. Paid over double at the time. Easy set up. Long signal range. You also get a free USB adapter in case your laptop or PC has no built in wireless.

I have a 3 usb mobile broadband, can I use this to create a wifi area in my house to be able to connect more than 1 item to it at once???

Thanks in advance for any answers

Yes you can. If your mobile got Wi-Fi. My self & my son are using both mobiles at the same time. I hope this will help.

Thanks for that - would you have a similar set of instructions on how to set up this as a wireless router for my sky modem (which has a wifi router already built in - but its rubbish)

Ok - it arrived and I set it up with a sky modem/router easy enough.

Pretty pleased although I guess I thought the wifi signal would be stronger.
