Fast home networking

Trendnet has joined a growing group of manufacturers that are starting to integrate Gigabit Ethernet into their routers and the TEW-633GR doesn't stop there as it also features 802.11n Wi-Fi. This should be a great choice for anyone looking for a performance router at home, even more so for those that are able to get faster than 100Mbit internet connections, as this is one of only a few routers to incorporate a Gigabit WAN port.



It might not be the coolest looking router around, but it has everything you could wish for in terms of features. It works with Cable and xDSL modems and supports all standard protocols. The wireless access point can also be set up in bridge mode and Trendnet claims a coverage range of up to 150m indoors and up to 400m outdoors.


It's also got a built in SPI Firewall and it supports NAT. It's even got support for Ubicom's StreamEngine which is a packet prioritization engine which should improve game ping times and VoIP call quality when the router is used for several things simultaneously. Also supported is UPnP, ALG's and UPnP.
