What Does "AC" Wireless Mean To Me?
To start, "AC" is the latest wireless network protocol following in the footsteps of the famous 802.11a/b/g/n. Here's where it gets a little more exciting, 802.11ac has the potential to wirelessly deliver more data at a faster rate to more devices at once over more channels at a greater distance. It's the next step in Wi-Fi. The important thing to remember is that in order to take full advantage of these top speeds of Gigabit AC wireless now, you'll need to have a broadband modem that's capable of Gigabit speeds, and the rest of your equipment - computers and devices - will also need to be compatible. That being said, this Netgear AC router will work great with your existing 802.11b/g/n devices and will help you maximize their network potential right now, including those streaming devices operating on the 5.0GHz frequency, and the latest dual band smartphones like iPhone 5.

System Requirements: Microsoft Windows 7/8/Vista/XP/2000, Mac OS, UNIX, or Linux.
