Wireless Connectivity - Range Matters
The WPN824 RangeMax™ Wireless Router adjusts to interference and the physical barriers in your home to deliver up to 500,000 square feet of coverage.

New Technology - Smart MIMO
RangeMax™ is an advanced Smart MIMO (Multi-in, Multi-Out) technology that uses seven internal antennas. The RangeMax™ WPN824 wireless router constantly surveys your home or office environment for physical barriers and interference: The RangeMax™ router adapts on the fly, adjusting the wireless signal to compensate for these performance blockers. For example; if you carry your laptop from the living room to the study, 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 dropouts and no wireless dead spots.

NETGEAR ensures that every computer, laptop or console user connected to your wireless network can work and play safely. The WPN824 RangeMax™ Wireless router comes with a double firewall, WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) encryption and WPA-PSK (Wi-Fi Protected Access, Pre-Shared Key) security. These security features add powerful safeguards against unauthorised usage.
