Trendnet Dual Band Wireless N Gigabit Router Review
Today we’re going to look at the latest doodad that Trendnet has sent us; the Dual Band Wireless N Gigabit Router. For anyone who doesn’t know, the capabilities of wireless N far outshine wireless G. Dual Band Wireless N has about 6 times the range and 14 times the speed of wireless G. So I think it’s safe to say that we all want one now. But what if you’re lucky enough to have two wireless N routers? Then you’d be me and you’d also be faced with quite the choice. Which router gets retired and which gets some serious overtime? Let’s see what happens when we pit the Trendnet against my current router, a big beefy Belkin. Click read more for the full review.

The packaging for the Trendnet Dual Band Wireless N Gigabit Router is bright and inviting. Having had the chance to review several different Trendnet products, I must say that their packaging is consistently professional and appealing to look at. The front of the package sports a picture of the router itself as well as some specifications , such as its range and speed compared to wireless G.
The back of the package has 3 different views of the router; as well as a diagram showing several different applications for the router. Along the bottom of the package there are pictures of related products, which is no doubt helpful to the network neophyte.
The contents of the box are as follows. There is the router, a quick installation manual, utility CD, network cable, and the AC Adapter. Everything you need to get yourself up and running in a matter of minutes. No exaggeration on that point. Trendnet lays everything out nice and easy in the manual.
The router has a piano black finish with the Trendnet brand name etched into the surface. The Trendnet Logo and model number of the router are tastefully printed on the top of the router, respectfully on the right and left. The front of the router has a standard array of LED indicator lights, letting you know the status of your network at a glance.
The rear of the router is the business end. Your standard layout of 1 WAN and 4 LAN is complimented by a switch for turning the wireless option of the router on and off. Three antennae’s broadcast are responsible for broadcasting your wireless signal.
