Manufacturer Description and Specs:
The Linksys WRT350N Wireless-N Gigabit Router with Storage Link is really four devices in one. The fastest and most advanced wireless solution currently available, this unit provides you with wireless access, connects your various devices or computers at high speeds, provides hassle-free storage options, and acts as a server to allow you access to your data and media from virtually anywhere.
With the Linksys Wireless-N Gigabit Router with Storage Link at the center of your home or office network, you can easily add storage, share a high-speed Internet connection, files, printers and multi-player games, and run media-intensive applications at amazing speeds, without the hassle or expense of stringing a lot of wires.
This Linksys Wireless-N Router with Storage link provides you with a Wireless Access Point (WAP) that lets you connect to the network without wires, and a built-in, four-port, full-duplex 10/100/1000 switch to connect your wired-Ethernet devices together at up to one-gigabit speeds.
A built-in router function ties everything together and lets your whole network share a high-speed cable or DSL Internet connection, while a Storage Link feature lets you easily add gigabytes of storage space onto your network using readily available USB 2.0 hard drives, or plug in a USB flash disk for a convenient means of accessing your portable data files. There is also a built-in Media Server that streams music, video, and photos from an attached storage device to any UPnP compatible media adapter, allowing you to get your files from anywhere in the world via the Internet.
The Access Point built into this router uses the very latest in wireless networking technology -- Wireless-N (draft 802.11n). By overlaying the signals of multiple radios, Wireless-N's Multiple-In, Multiple-Out (MIMO) technology multiplies the effective data rate. Whereas ordinary wireless technologies are confused by signal reflections, MIMO actually makes use of these reflections to increase the range while reducing dead spots in the coverage area. This means the signal travels farther, maintaining wireless connections at up to three times the distance of standard Wireless-G, so the farther away you are, the more speed advantage you get. This
Wireless-N router is fully backward compatible, so it works great with standard Wireless-G and -B devices, but when both ends of the wireless link are Wireless-N enabled, the router can increase the throughput even more by using twice as much radio band. This allows speeds up to 15 times that of standard Wireless-G. As a further convenience, unlike other speed-enhanced technologies, Wireless-N can dynamically enable this double-speed mode for Wireless-N devices, while still connecting to other wireless devices at their respective fastest speeds. For especially congested areas, there is a good neighbor mode that makes sure the router checks for other wireless devices in the area bef
