The Netgear WGT624 is a 108 Mbps network router that was released in 2003. This router was made before the implementation of the wireless-N standard, and thus it was designed to offer an improved wireless-G connection Netgear dubbed “Super-G.” The WGT624 offers approximately two times the speed of a typical G router, plus has up to four times the coverage range respectively. These features make Netgear’s WGT624 suitable for streaming media files in the home over its wireless connection. Users can protect their privacy with a variety of methods, including high-level WPA2-PSK encryption. The router comes with an interactive “Smart Wizard” to guide users through the installation process; however the device might require some manual configuration depending on the desired network setup. The Netgear WGT624 would make a suitable choice for users looking to stream media files on a budget and don’t mind some manual configuration.
