This user-friendly Wireless N-Router can easily be configured to your Local Area Network (LAN) to connect to the Internet. The Netgear Wireless JWNR2000 is best suited for a secure, high-speed Internet connection within your office area or residence. Despite delivering performance speed of up to 300 Mbps, the Router consumes about 35 per cent low power when compared to other Routers. Another advantage of this Netgear rig is that it works with older Wireless-G devices as well as new Wireless-N devices.
This Netgear Router comes with a Smart Wizard installation guide to walk you through the configuration process. The device also comes equipped with Parental Filters, a built-in firewall and physical buttons to control the status of your wireless network. The Netgear Wireless-N is also integrated with a series of security features to ensure the security of your network.
Design and Finish
Integrated with one antenna, this sleek and handy Modem Router weighs just 216 g. measuring 32.6 mm in height, 172.7 mm in width and 115.7 mm in depth. The Netgear device has 9 LED indicators and icons on the front panel, indicating the Power status, 4 LAN ports, DSL condition, Internet port, Wireless and WPS status. The rear panel has a WPS push button, four local Ethernet RJ-45 LAN ports for connecting to other systems, a Power on/off button and an AC power adapter input.
Connectivity and Security
The Smart Wizard Setup on the Resource CD that is provided with the Router takes about 15 minutes to complete. It can be used on a PC with Microsoft Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP or Windows 2000 with Service Pack 2. This Netgear network rig conforms to IEEE 802.11 b/g/n Draft 2.0 modulation, which lets you connect to the Internet while you are seated comfortably within its range. On a 2.4 GHz frequency band, this Router offers you a decent wireless speed of 300 Megabits per second. The Ethernet ports help in sharing files instantly between computers, hard drives and servers. This Netgear Router secures your Wi-Fi connection with WPA2-PSK, WPA-PSK and WEP encryption.
The pre-installed Denial-of-Service (DoS) attack prevention and Intrusion detection and prevention (IDS) assure complete safety of all the devices connected through your Router, be it PCs, gaming consoles and so on. The Router utilises Network Address Translation (NAT) technology and Stateful Packet Inspection to assure the safety of your connection.
Furthermore, the Router also provides multiple Service Set Identifier (SSID) guest network support. The SSID differentiates one WLAN from another and hence all access points and devices attempting to connect to your WLAN must use the same SSID, failing which, the device will not be permitted to join your Basic Service Set (BSS), assuring you complete security from hackers.
The new age Wireless-N technology delivers exceptional range and connectivity for both older and newer notebooks, letting you stream music, play online games and make hassle-free Internet phone calls. Another advantageous feature of this Router is that it has the Push 'N' Connect (Wi-Fi Protected Setup) feature that securely connects all your devices at the push of a button.
A significant security feature of this Modem Router is that it is integrated with Live Parental Controls that have flexible and customisable filter settings. This feature helps you monitor the websites that are being accessed by your family members, especially kids. It lets you block websites with unsafe or adult content, and also protects you from identity theft and scams. The Router also allows Virtual Private Network (VPN) passthrough, letting you communicate within your network.
The Netgear JWNR2000 has convenient power and Wi-Fi buttons situated behind the Router, specially provided for conserving energy. Thus, this Netgear Router is a simple and secure way of sharing your high-speed Internet connection for surfing, email, online audio and video chat and social networking.
