Best Wireless Router for Comcast XFINITY

by on 04/18/2011 in Computers, Hardware, Networking

Not all wireless routers perform well with high speed broadband. If you’re a Comcast customer who has the XFINITY high speed internet and you have a G-Router, you need to upgrade to get the most out of your wireless network. The G series wireless routers are only capable of delivering 54Mbs and will cause bottlenecks if you are streaming movies and TV programs along with other active devices in the home. The wireless N routers are capable of delivering high speed performance up to 600Mbps, unlike the G. There are many wireless N routers to choose from, but we are going to give you one that performs well with devices that are both G and N networks.NETGEAR - N600 Dual Band Wireless-N Router with Gigabit and USB

The Netgear N600 is a high performance wireless router that handles both G and N connectivity with simultaneous dual bands (2.4Mhz and 5.0). This means that even if you have a legacy G device or a N device, the router will provide the frequency for each devices with no delay automatically. In addition to bandwidth, the Netgear N600 has an option for a guest network in case you are having friends over who love to bring a laptop along.

The Netgear N600 also has a USB port so that users can hook up an external hard drive for sharing storage, backing up data, or streaming movies from the hard drive. This is a great feature for any home network!

The Netgear N600 is an advanced wireless router that can keep up with the demands from multiple devices connected to the internet. If you’re a Netflix customer and you stream movies from your Blu-ray or laptop, you will love the performance this wireless N Router can deliver. If someone is in another room streaming videos or someone is browsing the internet, this wireless router is up for the challenge.

I recently upgraded to XFINITY high speed internet and I needed a wireless router that could provide both G and N devices with the best connectivity automatically or in this case, simultaneously. The Netgear N600 router was the right choice for our home network that includes multiple devices that have both 802.11n and 802.11a/b/g standards. My last 3 routers were all Linksys and this is the first Netgear wireless router I purchased and am very pleased with the overall performance and features.
