NETGEAR has introduced their newest router, the NETGEAR D6400 AC1600 WiFi VDSL/ADSL Modem Router with dual-band Gigabit. The new D6400 is designed for larger homes and home environments supporting 10 or more devices such as smartphones, notebooks, tablets, laptops, computers, smart TVs, gaming consoles, and Blu-ray players.
The new AC1600 Modem Router provides a built-in fast VDSL modem for broadband that is also compatible with ADSL2+ connections. It comes with both Gigabit Ethernet WAN and LAN ports and also offers future upgrade abilities to fiber or cable. The AC module can deliver up to 1.6Gbps (AC1600 WiFi = 300+1300Mbps), perfect for both the newest and somewhat older devices.
“We developed the AC1600 Modem Router, the first in a series of new VDSL products, in response to consumers who now have extremely fast DSL broadband service but demand better in-home WiFi performance,” said Doug Cheung, senior product line manager for NETGEAR DSL Products. “You expect your in-home WiFi to deliver that faster broadband speed to the farthest reaches of your home, but are disappointed and frustrated that the modem router supplied by your Internet provider isn’t the latest WiFi technology. You want something faster, with better range, and which supports more devices. Our AC1600 WiFi VDSL/ADSL Modem Router does exactly that.”
NETGEAR’s router app called Genie is already enjoyed by more than 5 million customers and the dashboard like interface makes it easy to install, monitor, control, and repair your home network. You can easily access your home network, view the network map, check bandwidth usage, block WiFi devices, set up guest WiFi, and manage parental controls for safer web surfing, anytime, anywhere, all through the app. Another useful side on the D6400 is the NETGEAR MyMedia feature that enables you to find and play your stored media files from anywhere on your network to your DLNA-ready TVs and music systems. You can also make any printer AirPrint compatible for printing from an iPad or iPhone.
With two built-in USB ports, you can easily attach both USB drives and printers as previously mentioned and share them over your network. The NETGEAR AC1600 WiFi VDSL/ADSL Modem Router launched initially in Australia at the end of March, and will launch in Italy and the UK this April for an MSRP of €159.00/£149.99.
