This is a step back from the ludicrously overpowered routers coming out recentlyThe 802.11ac wireless technology came out not long ago, which prompted the release of a whole bunch of high-speed dual-band routers, like D-Link's Wireless Gaming Router.
Netgear decided to let things settle down a bit, so it launched the ProSAFE Single-Band Wireless-N Access Point (WN203), which has single-band access over 802.11n instead.
That means that the top transfer speed is of 300 Mbps (over the 2.4 GHz band).
It is all supposed to lead to a good balance between performance, price and reliability.
"The WN203 is our most feature-rich standalone wireless access point for small businesses and home offices. Whether it's an office with 5 employees or a 50-room motel, the WN203 enables the customer to expand and upgrade a wireless network quickly and easily, adding access points when and where needed, and at a price that's easy on the bottom line," said Thomas Cheng, Netgear senior product line manager.
Sales are underway for $145 / €108 – 145.
