Wireless N (802.11n)

Are you experiencing wireless drop-outs? Poor wireless range? If standard wireless G networking doesn't meet your expectations then Wireless N is your answer. Wireless N provides a breakthrough solution for larger homes or offices that have a wide area to cover and want to run multimedia and high-bandwidth applications. With its significant range and speed Wireless N is ideal for streaming video, music and photos, online gaming, Web-surfing and email.

Broadband routers are designed to be used with Virgin Media Broadband (previously NTL, Telewest) via a cable modem. If you have a broadband via a phoneline, see ADSL Wireless Routers instead.
