NETGEAR modems create a link between an ISP's public network and a private network in a home or business, translating the analog signals used in cable or DSL communications into digital data and vice versa. These products are compatible with a broad range of networking standards and many different ISPs. Staples carries a complete selection of Netgear modem routers that take on almost any connectivity task.
Netgear Modems Ensures Compatibility Almost all modems handle one of two network protocols; DSL, which transmits data over phone lines, or DOCSIS, a communications standard for cable TV systems. DSL modems typically support high-speed ASDSL2+ connections, and some are compatible with additional protocols. Most cable modems support the DOCSIS 2.0 and 3.0 standards used by US cable providers. While many ISPs lease modems, owning equipment saves rental fees and lets you choose a model with network features that meet your needs.
Netgear Modems Offer Versatile and Secure Communications Many of these products include routing and network management and security capabilities that simplify setting up a private network. A Netgear modem router with built-in 802.11a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi provides connections to wireless devices such as smartphones, tablets, Blu-ray players and televisions, and models with gigabit Ethernet ports provide dedicated high-speed access for devices without Wi-Fi capabilities. Select products also have built-in USB ports you can use to share USB drives with other network users.
Many models include security features such as Stateful Packet Inspection and Network Address Translation that protect private networks from internet-based threats. WPA, WPA2 and WEP authentication protocols prevent unauthorized users from accessing your wireless networks. Many modem routers also support Wi-Fi Protected Setup, which simplifies connecting wireless devices to the network. Some devices are compatible with Netgear's genie software. It provides a user-friendly interface to modem and router features. You can also monitor network activity from Windows and OSX computers and Android and iOS portable devices using this software.
What Is the Difference Between a Modem and a Router? These networking components both do their jobs on the borders of a network, but they have very different functions. A modem translates between analog signals and digital data, while a router passes digital information, in the form of packets, between two networks. Most Netgear products include both of these components. The modem translates and hands off incoming data to the router, which sends it to the appropriate local devices. Outbound data reverses this process.
Which Netgear Modem Should You Choose? The first thing to consider when selecting a modem is the type of service offered by your internet provider and the communications standards they use. You may wish to discuss compatibility with your ISP's support staff to ensure proper operation or choose a product that's certified to work with your provider's system. Once you understand these requirements, think about the local networking features you need. Select a bare modem if you already own a router, or pick an all-in-one solution, a modem-router combo with Wi-Fi capabilities and built-in Ethernet ports.
A modem is a critical component of any home or business network that connects to a cable or DSL internet provider's service. Find a Netgear modem with the connectivity features you need when you explore the selection of networking gear available at Staples.
