TRENDnet 300Mbps Dual Band Wireless N Gigabit Router
How do you decide which router to buy in this day and age? Is there one product that has it all? You'll be hard pressed to find a product with all the bells and whistles, but we may have one here today that comes close to the mark.
With so many routers to choose from, it can often be a daunting and hard decision to make when met with many options on the store shelf. We make no guarantees of making the decision any easier with the introduction of yet another router to the scene, but we will take a close look at one of your options that shows some potential which has recently hit the market.
Today we get up close and personal with TRENDnet's very latest router, the 300Mbps Dual Band Wireless N Gigabit Router sporting model number TEW-672GR. Specifically, we are looking at version 1.0R, which is the shipping version you'll find in the stores when buying.
It is the first Dual Band wireless router we have looked at so far and there is a good chance it is the first time you've heard about a product with this type of technology. Dual Band means that the router offers both 2.4GHz and 5GHz radio signal bands on a single device. Routers traditionally offer one radio signal limiting the amount of different wireless clients that are able to connect. Dual Band is still an uncommon feature, as this is new technology, and only a few router makers have cottoned onto it so far.
With two bands to work with, the TEW-672GR not only supports 802.11b, g and n wireless modes but also 802.11a wireless mode. The marketing here is somewhat deceptive as you cannot run both 2.4GHz and 5GHz radios simultaneously, which is a disappointment. The good news, though, is that there are many different wireless mixed modes that you can choose from and as long as at least one is suitable for your home or office requirements, it may not be a huge pitfall that both radios cannot operate at the same time.
TRENDnet's TEW-672GR also manages to pack in a few other nifty features which we also haven't seen before. Read on and we take a close look at this router and decide if it is worth the cash and if it is a hit or failure.
