AirLive WN-300ARM-VPN Wireless-N Modem/Router
Article Publish Date:
Having a fast ADSL internet access through a reliable internet service provider (ISP) does not really ensure high internet speeds unless you use an equally good ADSL modem/router. Last time with us we had the Rangemax DGN3500, the latest ADSL2+ modem/router by Netgear which not only outperformed its predecessor but also the competition. Today we have the WN-300ARM-VPN which is also the latest ADSL2+ modem/router by yet another leading brand in the network solutions market, AirLive.

Features-wise the WN-300ARM-VPN seems to be equally good to the Rangemax DGN3500 but on the downside it lacks Gigabit Ethernet support which although not important in real-life usage still it's something that it would be nice to have. The really good news however is that during all 2 months of testing our Internet connection never failed, not even once and so from a stability viewpoint the Airlive solution is rock solid. However since that’s not all that matters let’s move forward and see how well the WN-300ARM-VPN does in terms of performance.
