  • 22 October, 2004 10:39

<p>Sydney, Australia (October 22, 2004) – NETGEAR (Nasdaq: NTGR), a leading provider of easy to use, high-performance networking products, is holding a range of wireless and VPN training courses for resellers looking to expand their technical and practical knowledge of these technologies.</p>
<p>The interactive one-day courses will provide resellers with the information and experience they need to deliver best-of-breed technology solutions to their customers. Courses will be held throughout November at various locations around Australia and class sizes will be limited to ensure that all attendees receive dedicated training.</p>
<p>“There is a real hole in the market in terms of wireless and VPN training, with a lack of affordable, time-effective course available to resellers looking to expand their broad-based technical knowledge,” Ryan Parker, National ISP Account Manager, NETGEAR. “Catering towards our resellers’ needs, NETGEAR has devised a range of intensive, day-long courses that take both a theoretical and hands-on approach to these technologies, enabling resellers to better service their customers.”</p>
<p>The first course will be held in Sydney, covering wireless theory and the practical construction of wireless networks in home and business environments. It will also look at NETGEAR’s new AutoCell technology, which assists with wireless deployment and management. The second course will cover VPN theory and the construction of VPNs in a NETGEAR to NETGEAR, NETGEAR to software client and NETGEAR to third party product environments.</p>
<p>There is a registration fee for each workshop, which covers the cost of the NETGEAR product used during training. Attendees take these products with them on completion of the course.</p>
<p>The wireless workshop costs $490 inc GST per person, with attendees receiving a NETGEAR WG302 Wireless Access Point with AutoCell and a NETGEAR WAG511 Wireless Adapter. If a second person from the same organisation attends this course, they will only be charged $199 inc GST and receive a WAG511 Wireless Adapter.</p>
<p>Resellers attending the VPN workshop will be charged $390 inc GST per person and will receive a NETGEAR FVS328S Router with IPsec VPN tunnel capability and a copy of the NETGEAR Single User VPN Client Software. If a second person from the same organisation attends the VPN workshop, it will cost $199 inc GST and they will receive a Single User VPN Client License.</p>
<p>Resellers can register online or gain further information about either course at or by emailing</p>
