Netgear’s R6300 router is first to use Broadcom 802.11ac chipset, will ship next month for $200

That 802.11n router not keeping up with the gigabit pipe to your homestead? Netgear’s latest may just give you a much-anticipated boost. The R6300 Dual-Band Gigabit WiFi Router is the first to utilize Broadcom’s 5G WiFi IEEE 802.11ac chips, making it roughly three times faster than aging 802.11n. This means the R6300 could be an excellent fit for folks lucky enough to take part in Google’s Kansas City fiber experiment, assuming of course that they that also adopt yet-to-be-announced 802.11ac-compatible gadgets. For its part, the Netgear base ships with the usual suite of features, including Netgear Genie for configuring the network from a computer or smartphone, MyMedia with DLNA support, AirPrint (there’s two USB ports built-in) and pre-configured wireless security, keeping your hotspot off the neighbors’ radar right out of the box. The Netgear R6300 will ship next month, letting you future-proof your home for a mere $199.99.

New 802.11ac WiFi standard coming 2012

It’s time for a heavy tech story now as Broadcom have confirmed a new standard of WiFi will be coming by 2012 and it’ll be fast. Really fast.

Broadcom have confirmed that there will be a new standard of WiFi coming to the UK and the rest of the world by the end of 2012 that will boast speeds three times that of 802.11n.

Talking to PCMag Broadcom revealed the ins and outs of the new standard. 802.11ac utilises a waveband that is above those that are used now, by using the 5GHz band 802.11ac is able to transmit in what is called ‘clean air’.

By using this ‘clean’ band 802.11ac is unhindered by other signals and so is able to be incredibly quick and also incredibly powerful, offering penetration through buildings that has not yet been achieved by even the most powerful 802.11n routers.

What does that mean for us? Well essentially it means quicker browsing, and more reliable browsing over WiFi. Fibre-optic will be translated into WiFi signals much more clearly which will mean streaming on mobile devices will be hugely improved and finally it means you’ll never have to go and sit next to the router because your room is just that little bit too far away.

While it’s unlikely we’ll see a consumer model appear before Christmas 2012 the standard will be shown off at the Consumer Electronics Show 2012 so stay tuned to T3 for all the coverage of both CES and the new WiFi standard.
