Manufacturer's product description

Four Products in One - ADSL Modem, Wireless Access Point, Switch, and Firewall - NETGEAR's Wireless ADSL Internet Gateway provides it all. Equipped with a built-in ADSL modem, it gets you connected to the Internet at top speed. You don't need a separate modem because it plugs right into your ADSL line. The built-in 802.11b wireless access point gives you the untethered freedom of wireless roaming connectivity to network resources and the Internet. You can distribute MP3s, digital movies and photos with ultra-fast LAN ports capable of speeds up to 200 Mbps. Play Internet games, send instant messages, host Internet services - built-in port forwarding settings make it a breeze. You'll enjoy these benefits all the more knowing you have a True Firewall on the job, providing business-class security for your computers and your network with protection against Denial of Service attacks and network intruders. NETGEAR's easy, Web browser-based setup gets your system working in minutes. This uncomplicated unit plugs directly into your ADSL line, and an integrated switch makes it simple to directly hook up four computers. Setup is easy with NetGear's unique Install Assistant and on-screen help guiding you through each step. Works with PCs, Macintoshes, and virtually all Ethernet devices. Extends your network to support up to 11 Mbps wireless throughput without the need for any new cabling. The DG824M is always on guard covering all the bases with True Firewall using Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI) and Intrusion Control; Denial of Service protection from hacker attacks; VPN (Virtual Private Network) pass-through; content filtering to control Internet access to inappropriate web sites, based on time of day, URL, or URL keywords; logging and reporting capabilities. With speeds of up to 200 Mbps, the LAN ports allow you to distribute large multimedia files such as audio, video and graphics with ease. Features double the memory and a 50% faster CPU than many popular routers, and allows you to share your broadband Internet connection among up to 253 devices. Furnishes DMZ support for unrestricted access from the Internet to one computer for Web hosting functionality.
