Gone are the days when laptops were the only devices connected to your wireless router. New products like smart phones and tablets are the new additions to the list of devices that need connection over wireless bandwidth.The Important aspect here is that being hooked to Internet also means same amount of threats to these devices. Now instead of running an endpoint security solution on each device, it makes sense to have all security measures within the router. And besides the security features standard in most wireless routers, this device is unique in the sense that it comes with anti-virus protection which gets constantly updated post registration and is free for first 3 years. The other notable features of this router include built-in 3G data card support and a VPN.

To check performance of this router, we carried out two tests. We first checked the TCP throughput using 'Qcheck 3.0', with a payload of 1000 MB. It gave 22 Mbps speed. To check speed of transformation, we created an isolated network (N) with NetGenie connected to two machines, one via Ethernet and the other via a wireless connection. Then we transferred 50 MB of data from one machine to the other. It took on average 33 seconds to complete this data transfer.

Bottomline: Though it is loaded with features for business users, NetGenie comes across as an average performer.
