Netgear has announced three new wireless routers which it claims will be able to handle streaming high-definition (HD) movies and live HD gaming without lagging or disruptions.

The three products are called Dual Band (WNDR3300), Gigabit (WNR3500) and Dual Band USB 2.0 adapter (WNDA3100) - and were launched this week at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

As well as addressing concerns over whether Wi-Fi would be reliable enough for HD content, the devices are also significantly easier to use and configure, the firm claims.

This is because since they employ a single button, which users employ to turn their connections on and off - thus eliminating the need to enter a code manually, the company claims.

Patrick Lo, chief executive and chairman of Netgear, told delegates at the show: "Our customers in their homes or small offices should be able to utilize high-speed broadband networking for any application, including communications, information gathering or entertainment, from any corner of the house without any interruption."
