NetGear’s latest WNDR3700 router is a dual-core wireless device that sports an integrated N600 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit ADSL2+ modem, which gives it the privilege of being the first ADSL modem and router hybrid to ship from the company. Known as the “Ultimate Home DSL Gateway“, it will also come with a couple of USB ports to let you share content from USB flash drives as well as external hard drives over a network. The inclusion of a Gigabit Ethernet input lets you connect to cable or fiber networks, and another option to remain connection is done sans wires – that is, using 802.11n Wi-Fi connectivity that will play nice with both 2.4GHz and 5GHz radios. Installation takes a different route from what most people are used to – there is no CD required to get the drivers installed, while DLNA certification makes sharing media between compatible devices possible. Not only that, the company’s Live Parental Controls will also allow parents to set restrictions for all connected devices. If the need arises, you can also create a guest network so that visitors are able to access the web without having to share the home network password or computer access. If you’re an extremely detailed person, then you will be pleased to know that a usage meter is also available to help you keep track of monthly data consumption. The Ultimate Home DSL Gateway will ship for $200 a pop.
