Netgear announced the launch of its Wireless-N Upgrade kit recently that includes a Netgear 5GHz Wireless-N Access Point and RangeMax Dual-Band Wireless-N USB adapter. The kit allows computer users to connect to a wireless N network at 5GHz without interrupting existing wireless networks.

Netgear says that adding the upgrade kit to an existing network will allow for both 802.11n and 802.11b/g to create a dual network. The upgrade kit is also equipped with Wi-Fi Protected Setup for securing the network with the press of a button. The WNEB3100 Netgear Wireless-N Upgrade kit is available now for $149.

"The Wireless-N Upgrade kit enables customers with existing gateways and routers from their ISPs to easily add the performance benefits of 5GHz Wireless-N to their networks by simply connecting the kit to their existing wireless equipment, eliminating the need to re-wire, reconfigure or replace any existing equipment," explained Som Pal Choudhury, Senior Product Line Manager for Advanced Wireless at NETGEAR. "The bandwidth limitations of the 802.11g standard, combined with the ever-increasing level of RF interference generated in the home and small business environments by wireless networks, devices and appliances operating in the 2.4GHz frequency band, are creating significant performance challenges for bandwidth-intensive applications operating across 802.11g wireless networks. The Wireless-N Upgrade kit delivers a high-performance wireless network that offers more channels in a less-congested frequency band to deliver the faster speeds and more reliable connections required for applications such as Internet telephony, high- definition video streaming and online gaming. In addition, the kit upgrades a computer to dual-band Wireless-N so consumers can get the maximum benefit of 5 GHz Wireless-N technology, as well as continue to support existing legacy products."
