Netgear Devices naming convention
What is the naming convention of Netgear devices?
Some start with "AC", although the actual model number starts with "R" (I assume for "Router") or "EX" or "WN"..
Some start with "N", although the actual model number starts with "WNDR" or "WNR" or "PR" or "JNR"..
What do the prefix letters mean?
Why not have the name of the device be the model number, why name it differently?
Re: Netgear Devices naming convention
AC and N are wireless standards.
AC = Gigabit wireless speed (combination of 5Ghz and 2.4Ghz frequencies)
A = uses the 5Ghz frequency
N = maximum speed of 300Mbps
Keep in mind though that these speeds are theoretical.
WNDR = wireless N dual band router
WNR = wireless N router
The only reason I can think of is that they want to indicate the standard of each device.
I hope this information could help.
