Home Networking and Home Storage Converge

A CES Innovations Design and Engineering Award Honoree, the NETGEAR Media Storage Router (WNDR4700) embodies the intersection of two of the most important consumer technology trends of the last few years: The desire to store and stream large amounts of HD content and other media around the home and the need for high-speed, secure wireless connectivity for the rapidly growing number of Internet enabled devices in the home – everything from smartphones and tablets to game consoles, TVs and more.  The ability to provide both Apple Time Machine backup and Windows PC backup services differentiates the high performance storage capabilities of this product.  The Media Storage Router leaps ahead with up to 900 Mbps of combined WiFi speed and the industry's best WiFi range for maximum performance. 

The Media Storage Router comes with an integrated 2TB hard drive that is consumer-upgradable at any time.  The Storage Router also provides two high-speed USB 3.0 ports for adding more storage capacity or for converting existing external USB hard drives into networked drives, making it the most advanced combination of wireless router and storage available to consumers today. 

Streaming Media and Home Theater

NETGEAR announced two products that make it easier than ever to connect Ethernet-enabled gaming and home theater devices to your home network.  For consumers who want simple plug-and-play networking for a single device, such as a TV or a game console, NETGEAR's new Powerline 500 Nano (XAVB5101) instantly converts a standard electrical wall outlet into a high-speed network connection that easily accommodates the most demanding multimedia tasks.  For consumers who want to connect multiple devices in a room – including TVs, a network disk, media players, game consoles, PCs and other Ethernet-enabled devices – NETGEAR's new N900 Video and Gaming 4-Port WiFi Adapter (WNCE4004) is the perfect device that can simultaneously connect up to four wired devices to your WiFi router at top speed. 

NETGEAR also announced that Hulu Plus is now available on the NeoTV Streaming Player.  Hulu Plus is the leading streaming service for current and back season TV episodes and acclaimed movies.  With Hulu Plus, Netflix, Vudu™, Best Buy CinemaNow, YouTube, Pandora, and hundreds of other channels, NeoTV offers the best variety of both premium and long tail content.  In addition, NETGEAR also announced that Intel Wireless Display technology (WiDi) will be added to future NeoTV streaming players.  With Intel WiDi, customers can wirelessly display content from their laptop screen on their TV, in up to 1080p full HD video resolution.  With Intel WiDi, the world of the Internet becomes available on the TV through the NeoTV. 

Another CES 2012 Innovations Design and Engineering award honoree product, the N750 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit DSL Modem Router (DGND4000) provides an integrated DSL modem with high performance wireless router with speeds of up to 450 Mbps for demanding applications such as streaming HD video and multiplayer gaming. The router also includes premium features such as ReadySHARE® Cloud for remote access to the USB hard drive and ReadySHARE Printer to convert your USB printer into a networked printer.
