The BigPond Elite 3G21WB wireless gateway router connects to the 3.75G network. It has a peak rated downlink speed of 21 Mbps and upluad peak of 5.76 Mbps which is currently the fastest wireless broadband device available!
Manufactured by NetComm, the Telstra BigPond Elite Wireless Network Gateway (3G21WB) is a much nicer looking device than the previous model. Gone are the protruding antennas and the flat, box-shaped design. The new Elite Wireless Network Gateway is sleek, slim and sits upright thanks to a small silver stand. This means its ideal for those with limited desk space. The modem feels a little flimsy; the plastic creaks when pressed and the rear cover awkwardly clips in and out of place.
This 3.75G router also creates a network around your home or office without the messy wires with multiple wireless devices, including PC’s, laptops, Wi-Fi phones and PDAs. It is ideal for country areas that do not have ADSL/cable but are in the Next G™ coverage areas. Everyone can be online at the same time from almost anywhere in a typical home or small office.
It is also a good broadband in your car - just plug your BigPond 21.6mbps home network gateway into a DC converted power supply. No more bored kids on long car trips! . It allows you to access the 3G network as Telstra Next G™ (Australia) making it easy for you to watch movies, download music or access e-mail without the need of a fixed line Internet connection.The BigPond 21 Home Network Gateway has a 300Mbps/11n wireless access point, four 10/100 Ethernet ports and features state of the art security features such as WPA data encryption, SPI Firewall and VPN pass through. This feature packed unit allows you to quickly create a secure wireless 300Mbps/11n network and provide access to the Internet using the 3G Network. The BigPond 3G21WB Home Gateway provides a fast wireless broadband network with greater coverage than any other wireless broadband network all over the world.
