Netgear’s stable of dark gray rectangles of joy has swelled to include the premium edition WNDR 3800, which comes with two features uncommon to most home routers. First is the Clear Channel Selector, which analyzes the wireless traffic and switches to the quietest channel to prevent dropouts. Second is ReadySHARE Cloud — using the router’s USB port, you can attach an external HDD and access the data anywhere there’s an internet connection. The only downside is the iOS / Android app for the service costs an extra $2.99, which seems unnecessary considering you’re already paying $180 for the device itself. There’s a press release in it for you, so why not take a wander down after the break?
