Netgear won FCC approval for their MBR1516 Mobile LTE Broadband 11n Wireless Router today. The 802.11n router won approval for operation in the 2.4GHz band and sports the FCC ID: PY312200204.

Netgear’s beautiful Media Storage Router (WNDR4700) hits the FCC, hides 1GHz processor, internal hard disk drive
Most wireless routers are boring pieces of plastic that remain hidden on bookshelves. Not Netgear’s Media Storage Router – this device begs to be displayed in your living room, with a sleek black face and slim form factor that’s reminiscent of a digital photo frame.
But things get more interesting once you open up the Media Storage Router. The device hides a 2TB hard disk drive and a 1GHz processor, allowing the Media Storage Router to act as a media server, backup system and print server all-in-one.
Check out the full gallery of FCC photos below. Netgear hasn’t announced a release date for the device, but today’s FCC filing suggests that we’ll be seeing it soon.
Netgear released its N900 Wireless Dual-Band Gigabit Router back in September 2011, touting the device’s combined 900Mbps WiFi speed and array of six antennas. Today, thanks to recently released FCC internal photos of the N900, we get to take a look under the device’s hood.
FCC photos show the N900’s Broadcom BCM4706 802.11n GbE processor, a MIPS32 74K Core processor running at 600MHz. The BCM4706 is surrounded by Samsung K4Txxx SDRAM. Also visible is a SMSC USB controller and a SiGe 2.4GHz WLAN Amplifier.

Netgear hasn’t made much of a dent in the video streaming market, but this may soon change thanks to the company’s NeoTV NTV200 video streamer, which passed through the FCC today. Unlike Netgear’s previous NeoTV boxes that were large, clunky and expensive, the diminutive NTV200 seems well positioned to take on Roku’s lineup of palm-sized video streamers.
FCC filings indicate that the NTV200 will feature an HDMI out port, Ethernet port, WiFi and remote. The device will also work with the NetTV app, that will allow users to control the NTV200 from iOS or Android smartphones. It’s not clear which video streaming services will be supported on the NTV200, but the device’s installation guide does mention Netflix and Pandora.
Netgear hasn’t officially announced the NTV200 yet, so we don’t have any news on pricing or a release date.
Netgear’s upcoming N750 wireless router (model number WNDR4000) made an appearance on the FCC today. The dual-band Wireless-N router promises wireless speeds of up to 450 Mbps for HD video streaming. The device also features four gigabit Ethernet ports and a USB port for connecting networked storage devices.
When released, the N750 will take its place at the top of Netgear’s consumer wireless router lineup. No word yet on pricing or availability. You can check out Netgear’s N750 product page here.
Netgear unveiled its Push 2 TV technology earlier this year, and today the company passed its next generation Push 2 TV box through the FCC. Known as the PVT2000, the device is nearly identical in appearance and functionality to Netgear’s previous generation box, the PVT1000.
Push 2 TV technology allows laptops to wirelessly stream HD video to a TV that’s connected to a Push 2 TV box. The technology works with laptops that have an Intel Core i3, i5 or i7 processor, Intel Graphics Media Accelerator and Intel WiFi Link networking adapter. So far, Push 2 TV hasn’t made a huge splash, but the technology is definitely quite handy, especially if you spend a lot of time watching video on your laptop.
