A key trend in the transformation of homes into intelligent living spaces, where devices connect and communicate wirelessly to share and access multimedia files, is the introduction of powerful dual band wireless router like the new Belkin N750 DB.
Belkin N750 DB is a dual-band N+ router capable of 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz wireless networks, with each capable of transmitting 300 mbps and 450 mbps of data simultaneously.
Beside a wi-fi capable smartphone, consumers today own several more wi-fi capable gadgets and appliances which include tablets, Internet-and-wi-fi capable TV, wireless printer, laptop, etc.
At home, you may want to enjoy the benefits of wireless network that not only transmits Internet or data signal, but also capable of making you enjoy a wireless local network, which allows for all your wi-fi capable devices to link up with each other. That’s where the Belkin N750 DB comes in.
Belkin N750’s dual networks work separately and simultaneously: one delivers the Internet, while the other is dedicated to the local network. Setting up is easy. The product comes with a CD installer and from there, the set up is plug and play.
To allow other members of the family to access the local network, the CD program need to be installed onto their PCs or laptops. The Belkin N750 features two USB ports, where you can attach a printer (to be shared among the devices) and a large capacity portable storage (where you can upload, download, or play multimedia files.)
One-click wireless data back up with memory safe feature
With Belkin N750, you can do a wireless backup of your PC with just a click of the icon in the Windows taskbar and you can do this from any part of the house.
Belkin N750 supports DLNA/uPnP technology, which means that any DLNA certified device like a TV, a tablet or a smartphone can use the wireless network for direct streaming of videos or other multimedia files to other devices.
For example, using Kies Air app, I can access and play the multimedia contents of my Samsung Galaxy Note from my laptop.
The video streaming and file transfers are extremely fast. Belkin claims the N750 uses “MultiBeam” technology to provide greater throughput at greater distances.
MultiBeam is a refinement of the MIMO (multiple input multiple output) technology that’s been around since 802.11n was introduced. MIMO specifies multiple antennas for a given router so multiple signals can be sent and received simultaneously.
The good thing about this technology is it collects and merges the good signals and leave out the fractured streams caused by collisions with objects blocking their path. In short, it ensures whole or full data streams, thereby preventing lags in transmission.
To ensure that data streams aren’t fractured, Belkin N750 has five multibeam antennas.
Belkin N750 DB retails at P7,310 at PC Express store.
