The WZR-900DHP AirStation HighPower wireless LAN router supports both 802.11n/a and 802.11n/g/b standards providing 450 Mbps high-speed* transfer speeds. This capacity for high-speed transmissions enables full use of the high transfer rates available with fiber optic and other high-speed circuits, making downloads, large file transfers, playback of High-Vision video, and other data transfers over the Internet easier and more enjoyable.

* The "450 Mbps" under this wireless LAN standard is a theoretical maximum value and does not indicate the actual data transfer rate.
* Connecting at 450 Mbps requires that the access point also support 450 Mbps transfer rates. For more detailed information on supported devices, please refer to the specifications.
* The device's initial setting is 216 Mbps (standard value).

3-Stream Dual-Band Transmissions Supports Numerous Connections with No Loss of Speed

Developed to increase transfer speeds, the 802.11n wireless LAN standard uses MIMO (Multiple Input Multiple Output) technology, with multiple antennas for both transmission and reception. This allows data to be transmitted over multiple paths (streams) simultaneously, thus enabling higher transfer speeds. The previous version of 802.11n featured a bandwidth of 40 MHz (on two channels), with the two simultaneous streams reaching speeds of up to 300 Mbps, but this AirStation uses three simultaneous 40-MHz streams to achieve high-speed transfer rates of 450 Mbps (standard value). Additionally, the WZR-900DHP also supports the conventional 802.11n/g wireless LAN standard used by many compatible devices and the 802.11a standard for superior resistance to radio interference. This allows you to connect according to the type of signal used. Use 802.11n/a to connect TVs, for computers and game consoles, switch the stream to 802.11n/g—now you can enjoy fast, effortless wireless LAN transmissions with all the wireless devices in your home.

Gigabit Ethernet Wired LAN Makes Full Use of High-Speed Fiber Optic Lines

All of the WZR-900DHP's wired LAN ports (4 LAN ports and 1 Internet port) support Gigabit Ethernet (1000BASE-T), allowing Gigabit connections with computers equipped with Gigabit LAN ports and with TeraStation and LinkStation networked hard disk drives (NAS). This intelligently forms a high-speed 450 Mbps wireless LAN and wired LAN network environment. This router is also compatible with Jumbo Frames, larger Ethernet data packets used to increase the efficiency of transfers over networks. This enables fuller utilization of Gigabit high-speed performance. The WZR-900DHP's effective wired throughput is 939 Mbps with DHCP and 922 Mbps with PPPoE, providing trouble-free Internet connections for wired devices as well.

This router supports WPA2, WPA-PSK, WEP encryption modes. This allows use of a mix of encryption levels without downgrading any device's encryption level, even when connecting devices compatible only with weaker encryption systems.
* Tkip is not ordinarily used. Connections using TKIP are available only when set to mixmode.

Let Everyone Share Use of USB Devices

Connect an external USB hard drive or flash drive to create a home server (simple NAS)

The WZR-900DHP is equipped with a USB 3.0 port for connecting a USB external hard drive, USB flash drive, SSD or card reader (for SD or other cards). Connecting a USB hard drive to the USB 3.0 port turns the drive into a networked drive (NAS), allowing users to share data on computers and digital home electronics. With an inexpensive USB flash drive connected, it's also easy to set up a low-capacity home server—no difficult settings required. Turning a USB external hard drive into an NAS is simply a matter of connecting it with a USB cable (patent pending).
