ZyXEL - NBG-418N

Wireless N Home Router

The ZyXEL NBG-418N Wireless N Home Router provides more stable and reliable wireless connections for Web surfing, Internet sharing and multimedia streaming. Better yet, its rich green features will bring you an energy-saving wireless network without compromising performance.


Better wireless experience

Compliant with 802.11n technology, the ZyXEL NBG-418N Wireless N Home Router can upgrade home networks with faster wireless speeds of up to 300 Mbps* to provide more stable and reliable wireless connections for Web surfing and multimedia streaming. With Wi-Fi Multimedia(WMM) technology, the NBG-418N enhances your audio, video and voice application experience over wireless networks through the capability to prioritize different network traffic types for optimized performance.

Secured wireless environments

With the Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) push button, establishing a secure wireless network can’t be easier. The WPS takes only a few seconds to set up a secure wireless network without any complicated procedure; and 64/128-bit WEP and WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK are also supported to provide stringent protection for wireless transmissions.

Saves energy in smart ways

Featuring a power-saving mode, the NBG-418N can automatically reduce wasted energy when there is no transmission traffic. In addition, the NBG-418N can also detect the length of connected Ethernet cables and then adjust power usage accordingly. The shorter the Ethernet cable length, the less power it consumes.
