Double Firewall with Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI) advanced security provides maximum protection from professional hackers. The highest available level of Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) encryption and Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) means you can rest assured that your wireless network communications are private.

Simple to install, you just follow the cues shown on your PC screen.
Experience 5x the speed and 2x the range of 802.11b. The router shares your broadband connection with many users on your network - with or without wires. It delivers 10/100 Mbps (auto-sensing) WAN and LAN connections and interoperability with 54 Mbps (802.11g) and 11 Mbps (802.11b) devices over a single wireless band. Dynamic rate shifting according to environmental conditions achieves the fastest possible connections.
A double firewal built in to the NETGEAR 54 Mbps Wireless Router secures your network against hackers: Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI) and Network Address Translation (NAT) shield your network. Powerful WPA and 40/64-bit or 128-bit WEP encryption on the wireless LAN conceals your information from eavesdroppers. MAC Address Control prevents unauthorized access to your wireless network.
Parents can choose to monitor their children's Internet activity by applying optional time-of-day limits to web access, blocking inappropriate web sites, and opting to receive real-time e-mail alerts and logs of all network web activity.
