Encore Electronics introduces the new Wireless N150 Router and the new Wireless N150 USB Adapter. The new N150 Series offers more features, faster speed and better coverage than 802.11g products and is priced lower than high-end 802.11n products.

Encore Electronics®, a leader in affordable wireless and wired Ethernet networking solutions for small businesses and homes, announces its Wireless N150 Series as the latest addition to their 802.11n Wireless Networking Family. The initial launch includes a Wireless N150 Router (ENHWI-N3) and a Wireless N150 USB Adapter (ENUWI-N3). The Wireless N150 Series bridges the gap between 802.11g and high-end 802.11n wireless networking solutions products.

The Wireless N150 standard is derived from the 802.11n standard. Like its name implies, the Wireless N150 has a theoretical transfer speed up to 150 Mbps. The cable broadband offers 15 Mbps and ADSL broadband offers 6 Mbps max to consumers nowadays. Hence, 150 Mbps is more than adequate for virtually all Internet activities. Meanwhile, for local area network activities, such as passing a video file to your colleagues downstairs, Wireless N150’s performance is 6 times faster and 4 times wider than the previous 802.11g series.

Although a cost-effective alternative to the Encore Electronics’ NX2 series, which provides more speed for local area network activities, the Wireless N150 Series is not short in features. The Wireless N150 Router is a 2-in-1 product, including both a router and a repeater. Users can establish a new wireless network in router mode or extend the coverage of an existing wireless network in repeater mode. The Wireless N150 Router also has advanced parental control functions by which users can dynamically filter websites based on keywords and web addresses. Yet another advanced feature of this new wireless router is multiple SSID. Users can create up to four wireless networks with just one Encore Wireless N150 Router.

Accordingly, users may create separate networks for different departments in an office or create a password-protected network for personal use and a non-restricted network for guest visitors at home. Both the router and USB adapter in the Wireless N150 Series feature 256-bit security functions that are industry standards.

“We introduce the Wireless N150 series to answer the requests from students and apartment dwellers. They want better performance, while not paying twice the cost of 802.11g products. Our Wireless N150 Series performs 6 times faster and cover 4 times wider than Wireless 802.11g Series,” said Kai Huang, Marketing Manager at Encore Electronics. “Users can share Internet connection, watch streaming videos, transfer files, and connect to network hard drives or printers by setting up wireless networks with our N150 Series.”

Both N150 Series products will be available from Encore Electronics’ online as well as retail and distribution partners. See below for product model numbers.

The Wireless N150 Router (model #:ENHWI-N3, formerly named: Wireless N Router) has a US MSRP of $39.99.

The Wireless N150 USB Adapter (model #:ENUWI-N3, formerly named: Wireless N USB Adapter) has an MSRP of US $19.99.
