The Netgear RangeMax Dual Band Wireless-N Modem Router DGND3300 is certainly a mouthful – and rightfully so, since it's packing a hefty amount of juicy networking technology inside its rounded, slim-line case.Netgear, at least, is certainly trying to deliver on that dream. 5GHz kit is now trickling into the market with models such as the ASUS RT-N56U Dual Band Wireless-N Router we checked out last, but the Netgear RangeMax DGND3300 is the first we've seen that offers an all-in-one ADSL broadband modem and 5GHz wireless n dual-band solution.It's styled in the usual Netgear RangeMax chassis with annoying flashing central dome, which doubles as the quick-connect WPS button.We're also happy to see a real power button, so you can easily turn it off when you're going away. A USB port enables you to attached external storage that can be accessed via the router and four Ethernet LAN ports are also provided alongside the ADSL2+ WAN port. The Netgear RangeMax WNDR3300 is the cheaper, cable alternative to this ADSL modem model.
Inside the casing of the Netgear RangeMax DGND3300, you'll find two Broadcom Wi-Fi chips, a cache chip and two more chips hidden under heatshields that presumably handle ADSL2+ and Ethernet. The wireless arrangement is unusual, as there are separate 2.4GHz and 5GHz radios, so the two networks exist side by side instead of switching from one to the other. This results in the curious claim of a maximum throughput of 270Mbps, rather than the more usual 150Mbps or 300Mbps. We were surprised to see that the four Ethernet ports are 10/100 rather than Gigabit. This is acceptable on a budget router such as the ZyXEL P-660HN-T1, but seems out of place on a router at this price. There are eight internal antennae arranged under the large blue dome. Setting up the Netgear is quick, as the SmartWizard software walks you through the process and does everything short of connecting the cables for you. Netgear supplies an Ethernet cable, RJ11 phone cable and a phone filter in the package. Configuring the router is assisted by the front panel lights indicating power, LAN, 2.4GHz, 5GHz, DSL and internet connections and we found it was a simple matter to connect external storage to the USB port.
