Netgear WNDR3700 wireless router

Dual-Band Router Net gear calls its Wi-Fi Router WNDR3700: This is somewhat misleading, because the WNDR3700 transmits not only on the two frequencies 2.4 and 5 GHz but does so even simultaneously. Other manufacturers refer to such wireless router as a parallel band, or simultaneous dual-band router. In addition to the dual-band capability brings WNDR3700 Net gear gigabyte switch and USBport and other features

The Netgear WNDR 3700 supports the (preliminary) draft-802.11n standard. In our speed tests it was one of the fastest routers: Over the short distance of three meters, it managed more than 100 Mbit / s. worthwhile even for large distances, the Net gear WNDR3700: Over a distance of 40 meters, it provided excellent 47 Mbit /s.

These values, he scored in our trouble-free test environment in each of the 5-GHz frequency. The measurements on the 2.4 GHz band fell by 82 Mb / s for the short distance and 24 Mbps weaker for the long distance off. In simultaneous operation on both frequencies transferred the Netgear WNDR3700 130-170 Mbit / s. The speed tests, we could however not be accomplished with the included USB wireless adapter WNDA3100, but had to compete adapter and draw a notebook with Intel WLAN module:

The wireless router and the Netgear adapter mounted namely a stable connection is – only worked for a few seconds of data transfer before the connection is lost. The driver software of the USB adapter was irritated by comparison with endless WLAN scanning and brought our Windows Vista test system to crash repeatedly.
