CES 2014

CES 2014 logoNETGEAR's debuts include new wireless routers with integrated cable modems, and two AC range extenders.

Cable Modem Routers

The C6300 AC1750 WiFi Cable Modem Router Gigabit Ethernet is based on an Intel Puma 6 processor and has an integrated 16x4 DOCSIS 3.0 cable modem capable of supporting download speeds up to 680 Mbps.

Its two radios support wireless link rates of 1300 Mbps in 5 GHz and 450 Mbps in 2.4 GHz.

A lower cost alternative is the CG3000Dv2 N450 WiFi Cable Modem Router with integrated 8x4 DOCSIS 3.0 cable modem supporting a top download speed of 340 Mbps. Its built-in wireless access point supports link rates up to 450 Mbps in the 2.4 GHz band only.

Both routers have four switched Gigabit Ethernet LAN ports, ReadySHARE-enabled USB port for storage sharing, parental controls, wireless guest access and IPv6 support.

The CG3000Dv2 N450 WiFi Cable Modem Router is available now at an MSRP of $119.99. The C6300 will become available in the second quarter for $219.99 MSRP.

Range Extenders

The EX6200 AC1200 High Power WiFi Range Extender is a simultaneous dual-band 2x2 802.11ac range extender supporting maximum link rates of 867 Mbps in 5 GHz and 300 Mbps in 2.4 GHz. Its integrated five port Gigabit switch allows it to also be used as an AC1200 class wireless bridge. There is also a ReadySHARE-enabled USB 3.0 port for storage sharing.

NETGEAR seems to have caught the high-power bug from Amped Wireless with its claims of "high gain 5dBi external antennas and 10 amplifiers that boost output power to a staggering 700mW" (emphasis mine). The EX6200 will be shipping shortly at an MSRP of $129.99.

If you have a bit less money to spend on wireless extension, the EX6100 AC750 WiFi Range Extender might be more your speed. It comes in a smaller, wall-plugged format and supports maximum link rates of 300 Mbps in 2.4 GHz and 433 Mbps in 5 GHz. It has a single Gigabit Ethernet port that also lets it be used as an access point or wireless bridge. It is also shipping as we speak and lists for a mere $89.99.
