The general trademark of a manufacturer by which the consumer knows its products. A manufacturer can have multiple brand names. Some manufacturers license their brand names to other producers.
Product name:
Product name is a brand's identification of a product, often a model name, but not totally unique as it can include some product variants. Product name is a key part of the Icecat product title on a product data-sheet.
Product code :
The brand's unique identifier for a product. Multiple product codes can be mapped to one mother product data-sheet if the specifications are identical. We map away wrong codes or sometimes logistic variants.
Category :
A NIC or Network Interface Card is a circuit board or chip which allows the computer to communicate to other computers on a network. When connected to the network, computers can share websites, files, printers and other resources. The most popular networking standard at the moment is Ethernet, which one can recognize by the rectangular connectors with eight wires in them. Wireless network with the 802.11b and the faster 802.11g standard is also increasingly popular, both at home and in the office, though it is not yet as fast as wired (ethernet) network. A public place where you can use wireless internet is called a "hot spot".

Wireless Connectivity - Range Matters
Staying wirelessly connected in your home or office can be tricky, especially as your environment continually changes. For example someone with a cordless phone might walk between your primary wireless signal and your computer or a microwave oven might click on. This interference can cause a drop in wireless data speed or drop out altogether.

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. This means that with a WPN311 Wireless PCI network card inserted, your desktop computer will not be prone to loss of wireless speed or dropouts – ensuring continual high speed Internet and network access anywhere in your home or office.

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 positioning a desktop PC near to a fish tank may disrupt your wireless coverage (signal can be disrupted by water), because of its advanced smart MIMO technology the WPN824 router combined with a RangeMax™ wireless network card will adapt to the environment, using an antenna configuration to strengthen the signal and avoid the interference the water in the fish tank may have previously caused.

By easily setting up WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) encryption or WPA-PSK (Wi-Fi Protected Access, Pre-Shared Key) security on your WPN824 router and WPN311 PCI wireless adapter your desktop computer will be well protected. These security features and the Firewall built into the WPN824 router add powerful safeguards against unauthorised usage.

Easy Set-up
NETGEAR’s Smart Wizard™ makes the set-up of the RangeMax™ Wireless PCI Adapter easy and hassle-free.
