Netgear is expanding its family of next-generation 802.11ac wireless products with the US$99.99 R6100 WiFi Router. The R6100 is a dual band router that supports combined Wi-Fi speeds up to 1200 Mbps with Fast Ethernet wired connections.
It prepares your home network for new or upgraded devices that integrate 802.11ac WiFi support, such as the latest MacBook Air, says Sandeep Harpalani, Netgear's director of product marketing for core networking products. The R6100 offers improved performance and whole-home wireless coverage by incorporating simultaneous dual band WiFi technology. The 2.4 GHz band supports legacy devices while the less interference-prone 5GHz band is perfect for multiple HD media streaming and online gaming, says Harpalani.
What's more, the R6100 works with the free NETGEAR genie app and software for installation and network management, ensuring you a hassle-free transition to 802.11ac. For more info go to www.netgear.com/fastestwifi .
