TORRANCE, CA--(Marketwire - February 16, 2011) - TRENDnet (, a best-in-class wired and wireless networking hardware brand, is excited to reference the first independent review of TRENDnet's first-to-market 450Mbps Wireless N Gigabit Router, model TEW-691GR, paired with TRENDnet's first-to-market 450Mbps Wireless N Gaming Adapter, model TEW-687GA. SmallNetBuilder, a review site dedicated to networking hardware solutions, performed a detailed review of both products and generated an incredible top wireless throughput speed of 173 Mbps -- a value never before produced by a wireless n (802.11n) based solution, and one that is easily 200% greater than the average real throughput generated by a 300 Mbps router and adapter pair on the market today.

Tim Higgins from SmallNetBuilder went on to say, "I have to say that I'm surprised and maybe even have to eat a bit of crow here based on these results. I'm so accustomed to vendors over-hyping wireless products that I've learned to look carefully at every new-and-improved performance claim. And in most cases, they fall short of hyperventilated marketing claims. But it seems that, at least for a direct matchup of a Ralink RT3883F based router (TEW-691GR) and client bridge (TEW-687GA), that three stream N really can provide significantly higher throughput than you can get from any two-stream N product combination on the market. And whoda thunk that TRENDnet would be the folks to get this significant leap in 802.11n performance to market first? ...The TEW-691GR and TEW-687GA are your best shot yet at 100 Mbps+ wireless bandwidth in locations other than the same room. So let's hear from you brave pioneers who are willing to take the plunge!"

"TRENDnet is ecstatic to reference the first independent product review of our first-to-market 450 Mbps wireless solutions," stated Zak Wood, Director of Global Marketing for TRENDnet. "Look for additional first to market announcements from TRENDnet over the coming months."
