Wi-Fi CERTIFIED(TM) for full compliance with the 802.11n draft v2.0 standard, as well as the popular Wireless-G (802.11g) and Wireless-B (802.11b) standards, these new products enable efficient, next-generation connections utilizing advanced MIMO (Multiple-In,Multiple-Out) technology to deliver incredible speed and range. With wireless speeds up to 300Mbps and up to 4-times the coverage, theSMCWBR14S-N2 and SMCWUSBS-N provide a better performing wireless network than existing 802.11g technology. Upgrading to SMC's Wireless-N is a great solution for sharing Internet connections and files--video, audio, documents and data--without wires. And, 802.11n wireless networking technology makes those connections faster and more reliable across longer distances, with fewer dead spots, so users get coverage they can count on. Designed with the ease of use and functionality that make it ideal for the home network, the multi-functional router combines a 4-port 10/100 LAN switch, high-speed Wireless-N (draft 802.11n) access point, protection from hackers via a NAT firewall with Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI) and User friendly Web-based management interface in one convenient device. For security, theSMCWBR14S-N2 supports the latest WPA and WPA2 wireless encryption standards, which prevent unauthorized access to wireless networks to keep data secure.

Wireless security can also be set up easily using Wi-Fi Protected SetupTM (WPS), which enables push button or PIN configuration. Access Control allows parents to block certain Websites, limit Web access by time, day or dates, and/or to block Internet access for certain applications, like P2P utilities or games. And, of great importance to home users, configuration of the Internet connection and advanced router functions is made simple and straightforward with the EZ(TM) Installation Wizard and intuitive Web-based management interface.

"802.11n is well-suited to home use because of its extended range, enhanced performance, and ability to overcome dead spots," said James Harris, ProductManager, SMC Networks. "Upgrading to Wireless-N makes browsing theInternet and sharing files such as video, music and photos a breeze; and this solution does it easily, quickly and efficiently, so users gain the speed and range advantages of 802.11n wireless at an affordable price,"
