TRENDnet 802.11n router
TRENDnet has launched a new 802.11n router, the TEW-633GR Wireless N Gigabit Gaming Router. Three antennas carry the wireless signal, which supports speeds up to 300Mbps over an indoor distance of 500 feet. Range extends to 1,300 feet outdoors. For added security, the wireless can be protected with a firewall, encrypted with WPA2-PSK, or shut off entirely. Four gigabit LAN ports allow use when wireless is not an option. The "Gaming" moniker refers to the prioritizing of lag-sensitive online titles, as well as 24 preset hosting and port triggering configurations. The 633GR is Mac, Windows and Linux compatible, and should soon be available in retail stores.
