TRENDnet Launches TEW-692GR Router, 450Mbps On Both Bands

Networking gear may not seem like the most thrilling topic at a glance, but how else would you be reading this right now? TRENDnet seems to be making a habit of producing unique networking gear, and the company's latest certainly fits that same bill. The newest router to come from 'em is also the first dual-band router to support 450Mbps on both bands. The 450Mbps Concurrent Dual Band Wireless N Router, model TEW-692GR, is the first router to offer full 450 Mbps speeds on both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz wireless bands concurrently-for a total throughput of 900 Mbps. A popular Dual Band network configuration is to assign the low interference 5 GHz band to media center devices, and the more popular 2.4 GHz band to computers and peripherals that are typically only able to connect using the 2.4 GHz frequency.


"All other '450' Dual Band routers on the market today only support 300 Mbps speeds on the 2.4 GHz band," stated Pei Huang, President and CEO of TRENDnet. So, he told them! This one will ship with a three year limited warranty and will be available from all online and retail partners before the end of June, but coming up with the $249.99 asking price may be a chore.

Nice we definitely need a full review on this bad boy. 3 Year warranty is always nice too.

As I said before, I have used Trendnet wireless routers for a while now, and am completely satisfied with the performance they give me. Mine is not this one though so take that for what it is, but I personally like the equipment, and they don't bag you on the price like many other providers do generally for what you get. I also had one wireless/wired router of there's fail which was over a year old. The replaced it free of charge quickly!

Thanks for the info I have not really considered Trendnet products but have noticed that their prices are very competitive. Often they have hardware costing less money and doing more then D-link, Linksys, or Netgear. I would just like to see how the range compares to some of those companies higher end products.

The Belkin "N" standard Wireless Router that I have now serves my whole house well. So $249.99 for this one makes no sense to me.
