Enjoy fast wireless connectivity for your home or office. The Dual-Band Wireless-N ADSL2+ Modem Gigabit Router has a built-in high-speed ADSL2+ Modem for a fast, "Always On" connection to the Internet. Wireless connections are radio band selectable to avoid interference in your area, and the four built-in Gigabit ports supply high-speed connections to your wired devices.

The Power of N
Connect everybody in your home at once without wires. Dual Wireless-N radio bands let you choose the one with the least interference in your area. Either one delivers high performance for smooth streaming video, high frame-rate gaming, fast data transfers, and heavy Internet use from multiple users-- all with great range and reduced dead spots. It also connects to your existing Wireless-G, -B, or -A devices.

 This unit performs well, and does what I want it to

| | See all theleatherjacket's reviews (3)

The problem I have when technology moves on, is that I am reluctant to change anything, all the existing equipment works fine, I dont want to add anything new to introduce problems, I dont really want to spend the money, I dont want the newest thing for the sake of having the newest thing, and these sentiments arent eased any after you read some of the reviews about devices which are scattered all over the internet because other peoples tales of horror leave you afraid to jump one way or another

So why change, I bought WDTV (see the review), and I love it, I had a g router and some of the larger files I was sending to it was taking too long to transfer over, not only that, some of the video sent from it to a PC was a little less than fluid - hence the decision to upgrade.

I ruled out Belkin because, everywhere you look for advice you hear about dropped connections, i ruled out netgear for a number of reasons ranging from models not being able to achieve speeds, to models not being good on a network with multiple devices.

Now if you read other reviews for the WAG320n, people complain about dropped connections, usb functionality, range of wireless signal etc. I want to stress. I bought this device purely for the gigabit ethernet ports and to speed up my network, I have a gigabit nas attached, I dont need the usb port, I dont have a problem with wireless range or signals through walls, I never did, although i can remark i get a slightly higher download speed than my old router which is welcome. The router hasnt been reset in the time i have had it, the signal is strong, it gets a little warm but doesent cut out, transferring files while surfing is better, no noticeable congestion, I cant find a reason to be unhappy with its functionality.

The unit is not simutaneous dual band, its 2.4 or 5, you choose which is best, mine is at default 2.4, I do want to say, this is an expensive device to buy when you consider a router is free from most isp's but, they dont offer these features. I can tell you I have pushed this little unit for the basis of this review, sending 10GB HD to WDTV, sending a GB file to my NAS and receiving HD from WDTV to my PC, the result was impressive, and while being something I wouldnt ordinarily do, ordinary 3 way traffic is fine, heavy 3way (HD Streaming) is less than perfect so if you have multiple PC's and the kids play live games upstairs while you stream media elsewhere etc, I can see the benefit of a simultaneous dual band device, you would pay for it remember, but this unit is more than fine for my needs, all in all I am happy with this purchase (phew!)
Lastly, before I forget, the picture of this model is incorrect, the WAG320n is an all black fingerprint magnet similar to the wrt160n, it is not silver, it looks better, it comes with a set up cd, which is easy if you want to use it, my provider is plusnet, but wasnt in the list, typed my address and p/w and it set up immediately. Based on my experience this works for me.

The 4 stars, is based purely on price, it shouldnt cost so much.
