    TRENDnet, a best-in-class wired and wireless networking hardware brand, today announces the availability of the first to market 450Mbps Concurrent Dual Band Wireless N Router, model TEW-692GR.

    This is the first router to offer full 450 Mbps speeds on both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz wireless bands concurrently-for a total theoretical throughput of 900 Mbps. A popular Dual Band network configuration is to assign the low interference 5 GHz band to media center devices and the more popular 2.4 GHz band to computers and peripherals that are typically only able to connect using the 2.4 GHz frequency.

    Gigabit Ethernet ports maintain high performance wired connections. Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) integrates other WPS supported wireless adapters at the touch of a button. Gone are the days of entering complicated encryption codes; simply press the WPS button on the TEW-692GR, and then press the WPS button on a compatible wireless adapter-the devices automatically exchange information and connect over a secure encrypted wireless signal. WMM technology further prioritizes video and audio packets.

    "We are confident that this first-to-market 450Mbps router will outperform any router available today," stated Zak Wood, Director of Global Marketing for TRENDnet. "TRENDnet remains the only brand to offer 450Mbps adapters needed to connect to routers at 450Mbps and the only brand to offer products that support a complete 450Mbps wireless ecosystem."

    The 450Mbps Concurrent Dual Band Wireless N Router, model TEW-692GR, comes with a three year limited warranty and is currently shipping to all online and retail partners. The MSRP for the TEW-692GR is U.S. $249.99.

    Now all they need to figure out is how to make it so that users NEVER have to reset their routers.

    Great timing. I happen to be in the market for a dual-band router that can knock a helicopter out of the sky at a range of 20 miles :D.

    I wonder if aftermarket firmware will be able to support this beast. :wtf:

    Just needs opensource firmware like dd-wrt, tomato kong toastman .... ?

    1x Failure they have is no usb, major deal brake'er.

    Wonder what chip it is based on, Ram, Cpu, Flash RAM Size is and how is the overheating problems.
    Any idea what power output the antenna's / radio chip is capable off ?

    Sorry I would look for this basic info but it has no USB so "no sale" and for that price they should have done USB3.0 at least.

    WarraWarra: come on, USB 3.0? Even the newest motherboards barely support it, and you want that in a router! Be realistic! What's wrong with an ethernet-capable hard drive enclosure? Assuming that's what you'd use the USB port for...

    I Agree, USB 3.0 should be standard at that price.

    Meh, stopped recomending to my clients these OEM style routers 2 years ago.
    These days I build them myself using components from these guys mainly:http://www.mikrotik-store.eu/
    You can buy a 2,4ghz and/or 5ghz extension if and only if you like, or other gizmos. Firmware based on linux ultra performing.

    For around 100-120euro tops you can get enterprise grade BGP, multi Wan (teaming), and hardware specs that kill and bury any router in their price range.

    250 seems a bit steep for new tech (really not so much new tech). Think I will wait.
