Ease of Use

Worked fine out of the box for the first 15 minutes. I checked the website and saw there was a firmware update available. It's a simple HTTP update through the GUI. No other options available like FTP or TFTP. Pushed the new firmware... and FAIL. Seems to be stuck in a loop, running the boot script. Ethernet connections keep dropping, wireless never turns on, can't access the GUI. Dead. Returned.

Product Overview

Green Router Upgrades Home Network Easily
  • Hi powered 5dBi antenna for better range and more stable wireless networking
  • Transfer files faster with wireless data rates up to 150 Mbps*
  • Enhanced "green" features for less energy consumption
  • Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) for one button network configuration and security
  • Enhanced security with WPA/WPA2 and firewall

  • Wireless N support and upgraded data transfer rates of up to 150 Mbps*
    Featuring 802.11n technology with speeds three times faster than the 802.11g standard networks, the ZyXEL NBG-416N Wireless N-lite Home Router offers a cost-effective solution for users upgrading their network to the next generation of wireless technology. The NBG-416N not only provides faster speeds but also allows for a more stable and reliable wireless connection for data and multimedia streaming. By offering complete backwards compatibility with the existing 802.11b/g networks the NBG-416N will greatly enhance your Internet experience.

    Green router saves energy by detecting link status and cable length
    With rich "green" features, the NBG-416N consumes less power than most home routers on the market. It can smartly adjusts power consumption by detecting the link status and the length of connected Ethernet cables. When the NBG-416N detects no active data transmission, the device automatically enters power-saving mode to avoid wasting energy. The NBG-416N can detect the length of connected Ethernet cables and adjust power usage accordingly. The shorter the Ethernet cable length is, the less power it consumes.

    Wireless scheduler and output power management provide eco-friendly home network environments
    In order to reduce unnecessary wireless engery consumption for a more eco-friendly network environment, the wireless scheduler and output power management of NBG-416N enable you to easily control the wireless network environment. The desired operating time can be set up in a few steps via the Web-based user interface, allowing the NBG-416N to turn itself on or off according to your wireless usage pattern. This also adds another layer of security, since external access to the device is not possible when the wireless function is deactivated. With the five-level output power control capability, the NBG-416N makes it easy for users to adjust the output power to reduce interference that affects your neighbors if you live in an area of high AP density.

    Easy setup with WPS
    Establishing a secure wireless network could not be easier. The WPS button of the NBG-416N requires only a few seconds to set up a secure wireless network. Instead of entering a pass phrase, users can authenticate a new device on the network by pressing a button or by entering an automatically generated PIN code.

    Enhanced security with WEP, WPA/WPA2 and firewall
    WPA/WPA2 are supported to provide strong encryption for your wireless data, as well as 64/128-bit WEP for backwards compatibility with legacy devices. In addition, the NBG-416N is equipped with firewall features including Network Address Translation (NAT), Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI), Denial-of-Service (DoS), and VPN Pass-through (IPSec, PPTP and L2TP) to protect you from attacks from the Internet.

    WMM QoS for multimedia streaming prioritization
    With the Wi-Fi Multimedia (WMM) technology, the NBG-416N enhances user experiences for audio, video and voice applications over wireless networks with the capability to prioritize different network traffic types for optimized performance.
