Netgear today announced two new cable modem routers — N600 Dual-Band Wi-Fi Cable Modem Router (C3700) and the N300 Wi-Fi Cable Modem Router (C3000).
These devices integrate a DOCSIS 3.0 cable modem for faster Internet access and an N300/N600 high-speed 802.11n Wi-Fi router together in one space-saving device. The cable modem routers enable you to simplify installation and management.
The new cable modem routers integrate an 802.11n Wi-Fi router with a built-in 8×4 CableLabs-certified DOCSIS 3.0 cable modem. A DOCSIS 3.0 8×4 cable modem offers download speeds up to 340 Mbps, eight times faster than the previous version, DOCSIS 2.0.
Both of the two new cable modems support eight download and four upload channels simultaneously, which is ideal for HD video streaming, fast downloads, and high-speed online gaming.
In addition to cable speeds, both of the new cable modem routers integrate an 802.11n Wi-Fi router. The N300 Wi-Fi Cable Modem Router supports Wi-Fi speeds up to 300 Mbps on the 2.4GHz band. The N600 Wi-Fi Cable Modem Router offers simultaneous dual-band networking, reducing Wi-Fi interference and doubling bandwidth, supporting speeds up to 300 Mbps on the 2.4 and 5GHz bands so all your wireless devices have a super-fast Wi-Fi connection.
The new N300 and N600 Cable Modem Routers are compatible with current and next-generation Wi-Fi devices and offer better wireless security and support for IPv6.
Each cable modem router also comes equipped with Gigabit Ethernet ports so you can benefit from the fastest wired speeds to connect your desktop computer and other devices such as network storage, while still enjoying the freedom of wireless connections for mobile devices such as tablets, laptops, and smartphones.
In the second quarter of 2014, NETGEAR expects to release the AC1750 Wi-Fi Cable Modem Router (C6300) for $219.99.
