CES 2011

CES 2011NETGEAR's CES 2011 announcements include new wireless routers, powerline adapters and updated Push2TV Adapter.

Consumer Products

Leading off its new crop of wireless routers is the WNDR3800 N600 Wireless Dual-Band Gigabit Router - Premium Edition. This next generation of the WNDR3700 is a simultaneous dual-band N router with tweaks to its built-in USB drive sharing features.

The new USB drive serving features include improved performance, USB printer sharing, remote file access via ReadyShare Remote, DLNA certified media serving and can be used to expand Tivo storage and serve as Apple Time Machine storage. MSRP is $179.99 with shipments starting next quarter. Note that the WNDR3800 comes bundled with a new NETGEAR Genie "home network dashboard" application.

Next is the WNDR4000 N750 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router. It's also a concurrent dual-band N router with many of the same base features shared by the WNDR3700 and WNDR3800. But its 5 GHz radio only supports three-stream N connections for a maximum connect rate of 450 Mbps when used with three-stream N clients (which NETGEAR did not announce). MSRP is $179.99 with shipments starting this quarter.

Going in a different direction, but building on the WNDR3700 platform is the is the DGND3700 N600 Wireless Dual-Band Gigabit ADSL Modem Router. It shares the WNDR3700's features (four-port Gigabit switch, ReadyShare USB sharing, Guest Networks, etc. but sports a built-in ADSL modem. MSRP is $199.99 with shipments starting next quarter.

It may look a little funny, but the WNXR2000 N300 Wireless Router with Powerline AV joins a single band N router (I'm assuming the WNR2000 [reviewed]) with a combination HomePlug AV adapter / power supply module. The result is a single-band 802.11n router with Ethernet and HomePlug AV powerline connectivity. It ships this month at $119.99 MSRP.

Moving away from routers to other networking introductions, the PTV2000 Push2TV HD TV adapter is NETGEAR's follow-up to its PTV1000 wireless video streamer introduced last CES. The new version supports full 1080p HD at 30 fps, but still only works with computers with Intel WiDi compatible wireless. It ships this month at $119.99 MSRP.

A little sibling to the WN2000RPT [reviewed], the WN3000RP Universal WiFi Range Extender is a wireless repeater (no WDS required) in wall-wart form-factor. The presumably 2.4 GHz N repeater comes out in March at a $99.99 MSRP.

To even further expand its already wide powerline family, NETGEAR is adding the XAVB5004 Internet Adapter for Home Theaters and XAVB2101 Powerline AV 200 Nano Adapter Kit. The XAVB5004 bundles a new four-port 500 Mbps powerline adapter with what looks like an XAV5001 Powerline AV 500 adapter. The kit will list at $169.99 when it's available in March.

The XAVB2001 solves the problem of outlet-hogging powerline adapters. You get two of the compact 200 Mbps HomePlug AV adapters in the kit, which also comes out in March at a $139.99 MSRP.
