Netgear Wireless Home Theater Kit Will Help You Ditch Cable Tv
May 5th, 2010
While there are already several ways of streaming media throughout your home network, you might want to check out Netgear’s upcoming Wireless-N HD Home Theater Kit, which promises high quality streaming – even multiple Blu-ray streams – with plug and play ease.
The kit consists of a pair of adapters – one plugs into your router or gateway, while the other sticks close to your media devices, be it a computer, gaming console or Ethernet/WiFi-compatible TV. The adapters make use of the 5 GHz band to transmit data to avoid interference that may be caused by other wireless gear in the vicinity.
The kit is modular too, i.e. you can add additional adapters if the second one can’t serve all of your gadgets. No word on the price yet, but they’ll be available this fall. Check out Netgear’s website for more details.
