WPNT511 - RangeMax™ 240 Wireless Notebook Adapter
You may not even know it but your wireless home network may be slowing you down.

What you need is the speed to move content faster to everyone in your home without interruption and without wires.
Now you can with the RangeMax 240 Wireless Notebook Adapter (WPNT511b), the first notebook adapter to deliver wireless speeds as fast as your wired connection, up to 240 Mbps when used with RangeMax 240 Wireless Router. And with Adaptive Channel Expansion (ACE) technology, the RangeMax 240 dynamically adapts to wireless interference to deliver the speed that your applications require on-demand. So whether you are streaming audio & video, uploading large files to your Storage Central, or just surfing the web, RangeMax 240 delivers the speed you need for today and beyond. Now the performance and quality-of-experience once only associated with wired networks can be achieved in your wireless home.
Superior RangeMax Coverage
Does your current wireless network cover your entire home? Today, most wireless adapters are only able to “listen” to one wireless signal at a time, the strongest one. If that signal is blocked or interfered with for example by a closing door, cordless phone, or your microwave oven, it can result in a wireless dead spot, cutting you off from your network. However, the RangeMax 240 is capable of “listening” to multiple signals simultaneously, utilizing its advanced MIMO (Multi-Input, Multi-Output) technology. So if any one of those signals is disrupted, the RangeMax 240 automatically maintains your network connection, eliminates dead spots and extends your range throughout your home.
Enhanced Wireless Speed
The RangeMax 240 Wireless Router and Adapters are twice the speed of other MIMO products, and for the first time perform at virtually the same speeds of wired networks. In addition, it is fully compatible with your legacy (802.11b/g) equipment, in fact those legacy devices will experience up to 50% better performance - especially at long distances. The RangeMax 240 enables higher quality video streams, faster MP3s downloads, uninterrupted Internet phone calls, and more efficient file sharing all with your existing equipment.
Unsurpassed Security and Ease
With NETGEAR’s exclusive Touchless WiFi Security, you can rest assured that what happens on your network stays on your network. Touchless WiFi Security automatically detects the type of security settings of your network, whether its a NETGEAR router or even another brand, and connects you with a simple passphrase. RangeMax 240’s powerful safeguard against unauthorized network access includes a double firewall, WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy), WPA-PSK, and WPA2-PSK (Wi-Fi Protected Access - Pre-Shared Key).
