First 802.11ac Trendnet router, the TEW-812DRU, is in a very different form from previous TRENDnet router.
LAS VEGAS – Trendnet announced today at CES 2013 its first 802.11ac router, the AC1750 Dual Band Wireless Router (model TEW-812DRU).
The new router supports three streams configuration of Wi-Fi 802.11ac standard on its band 5 GHz and delivers up to 1.3Gbps data rates when used with a compatible client. It also supports existing customers of all existing standard Wi-Fi with up to 450Mbps on both of his band 5 GHz and 2.4 GHz simultaneously.
For wired clients, the TEW-812DRU is a Gigabit router with four LAN ports and one WAN port. It comes with a USB 2.0 port to host an external storage device for its built-in capabilities of network storage. On top of this, the TEW-812DRU has a web interface, advanced parental control features, and offers guest access as well as other common characteristics.
What is common about the new router is its new antenna design, which looks very different from the rest of the Trendnet router I’ve seen.
