Making a more powerful router. Netgear.

Boot Camp feature for Friday, April 1, 2016

Making a more powerful router.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.     From streaming movies and TV shows, to security cameras, smartphones, tablets and computers, routers in the home are being asked to handle a lot of traffic these days.   Netgear’s latest answer to those challenges is the Nighthawk 4S.   There’s a lot that’s impressive.  Product manager Abhay Bhorkar…

“This is the fastest router in the market with a powerful 1.7 GHz CPU.   So it all starts with the heart of the router, processing speed and processing power.   So we have given it the industry’s fastest processor that is able to handle a lot more traffic and a lot more data passing through it.”

The capabilities make it more expensive than many other WiFi routers…at about 260 dollars.   But if you’ve got a busy network, the investment can be worthwhile.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
