  • Protects connected devices through the router such as PCs, gaming consoles, and iPod touch

Providing separate security and access restrictions for guests using the network is sometimes very important. WNDR3400 supports Guest Network Access. By default the router provides NETGEAR as the SSID name for 2.4GHz b/g/n SSID and the default NETGEAR-5G for 5GHz a/n SSID. You can configure the router and change the SSID default names for security reasons.

WNDR3400 provides security protection with NAT and SPI features as well as DoS (Denial of Service) attack prevention. NAT (network address translation) hides your private networks from the public network (the internet) and allows sharing a single internet connection with many computers in the network. Stateful packet inspection (SPI) inspects the incoming traffic thoroughly for false positive packets.

To connect the router to the Internet, you need broadband modem (either Cable or xDSL) and Internet services from your ISP. Connect one end of the cross UTP cable (cable that comes with the modem) to the Ethernet port of the modem, and connect the other end to the WAN port of the router.
