All-in-one Internet connectivity with
enhanced speed and range
The Linksys Wireless-N ADSL2+ Gateway is the all-in-one solution for Internet connectivity.
The ADSL2+ Modem function gives you a blazing fast connection to the Internet, far
faster than a dial-up, and without tying up your phone line. The Router function lets
you share your high-speed Internet connection with all the computers in the house.
Share files, printers, hard drive space, and other resources by connecting your computers
to the Gateway via the built-in 4-port 10/100 Ethernet Switch. Attach four wired computers
directly, or connect more hubs and switches to create as big a network as you need.
Or, use the built-in Access Point to connect wireless devices to your network without
running cables through the building. The Access Point built into the Gateway uses the
very latest 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. Unlike ordinary wireless networking technologies that
are confused by signal reflections, MIMO actually uses these reflections to increase the
range and reduce “dead spots” in the wireless coverage area, maintaining the wireless
connection much farther than standard Wireless-G.
With Wireless-N, the farther away you are, the more speed advantage you get. It works
great with standard Wireless-G and -B equipment, but when both ends of the wireless
link are Wireless-N, the Gateway can increase the throughput even more by using twice
as much radio band, yielding speeds far faster than standard Wireless-G. But 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. In congested areas, the “good neighbor” mode ensures that the
Router checks for other wireless devices in the area before gobbling up the radio band.
The Gateway protects your data and privacy with up to 256-bit industrial-strength
encryption and 802.1x authentication and authorization. It also has a powerful SPI
firewall to protect your computers against intruders and most known Internet attacks.
Configuration is a snap with the web browser-based configuration utility.

The maximum performance for wireless is derived from IEEE Standard 802.11 specifications. Actual performance can vary, including lower wireless
network capacity, data throughput rate, range and coverage. Performance depends on many factors, conditions and variables, including distance from
the access point, volume of network traffic, building materials and construction, operating system used, mix of wireless products used, interference and
other adverse conditions.
