Fine settles case of WiFi routers and tablets broadcasting beyond permitted power.
With the introduction of the Wi-Fi ac standard and mainstream availability of the Wi-Fi ac modems in smartphones and current-generation notebooks, routers that provide bandwidth to handle 1 Gbit/sec Wi-Fi ac transfer rates have become standard. Vendors that manufacture modems for the routers have also been tweaking away to achieve higher bandwidth and more throughput. One such hardware manufacturer who has enjoyed a modicum of success in this segment is Broadcom, who recently unveiled its BCM4709A SoC, which is the hardware that powers Netgear’s R7000 Nighthawk, the manufacturer’s first offering in the Wi-Fi AC1900 segment.

Up for consideration today is the Netgear Nighthawk R7000 Router. Advertised as being built for gaming, media streaming, and mobile devices, this device was an honoree at the 2014 International CES Innovations Design and Engineering awards. Of course for all of you who are already familiar with the lines and reputation of Netgear, this quality product should come as no surprise. The R7000 touts the new 802.11AC wireless standard along with a number of features designed to improve the user experience: AC1900 WiFi—600+1300 Mbps speeds 1GHz Dual Core Processor Beamforming+ improves range & performance High powered amplifiers & antennas to extend your WiFi coverage Advanced
