Netgear has launched an upgrade kit that enables users to add a wireless n access point to their existing Wi-Fi network. The Netgear WNEB3100 Wireless-N Upgrade Kit operates on the 5GHz spectrum and can be plugged in to the existing router.

The Netgear RangeMax Dual-Band Wireless-N USB adaptor which also comes as part of the kit allows users to easily add a 5GHz wireless 802.11n connection to any existing network or even create a dual-band network to those networks already running on 802.11b/g.

Security is provided by industry-standard Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS), pre-configured security settings. The kit has a ‘Push 'N' Connect’ function to help establish a secure home network without the need for lengthy passcodes or long encryption keys.

Priced at £160, the Wireless-N Upgrade Kit is available from www.netgear.co.uk.
