    Tech questions ...   (7 Answers)

    I see this device on the NETGEAR site but it lists the USB port as 2.0 , not 3.0 as listed on the BestBuy site. Which is it ? Also, does it use 'Beamforming' technology ? Again different specs on both the above-mentioned sites ? Thanks for a response !

      Answer

      There's nothing on the box or in the manual about beamforming technology. But it covers my entire house from a second floor bedroom without a problem. I'm not a gamer, but I do a lot of HD streaming, and Netflix is working flawlessly for me.

            Answer

            Yes, however the power of the router will work from a long distance. I use a wireless printer and security cameras on the router. The router is located in the central part of my house. It is worth it

              Answer

              Probably not. I have no problem streaming to two sticks, an Amazon and a Roku, not at the same time, while several smart phones and tablets are one line. However, my old N600 provided the same level of quality service. I'd suggest that you test you internet speeds. It needs to be at least 8M for HDMI. If not, there will be excessive buffering. Test your speed online and talk to your provider.
