These guys have a fantastically complicated product line. It’s been around since Ajump, Infrant; NetGear now runs it. It’s never quite clear what you’re buying and whether the box-on-the-shelf in front of you (or in the online store) is current or discontinued or what. The published specifications are a little vague on a lot of the high-end capabilities. Unfortunately, that means you “learn by experience” when you buy a unit and discover the user base / feature set that the model was tuned for. Drive one before you buy one; good advice in all realms.
