TRENDnet , a global leader in reliable SMB and consumer networking and surveillance solutions, has announced the launch of its first business router, the AC3000 Tri-Band Wireless Gigabit Dual-WAN VPN SMB Router, model TEW-829DRU. The new business router features dual-wan ports, support for VPN and VLAN applications, and it is integrated with advanced web content filtering and productivity tools powered by Router Limits .

The advanced features on TRENDnet's business router provide optimal performance, scalability, and protection for your business network. TRENDnet's wireless business router supports three concurrent WiFi bands to maximize device networking speeds. There are two separate high-performance AC networks (up to 1733Mbps and 867Mbps respectively), and a 400Mbps wireless N network. The router features VPN for encrypted remote LAN access, inter-VLAN routing, and QoS. In addition to dual-wan ports, the TEW-829DRU WiFi business router also features eight gigabit LAN ports, one USB port, and one console port.

"Businesses can help create an environment for a more efficient workforce by improving network controls and connectivity with the TEW-829DRU wireless business router. Dual-wan ports help to balance network traffic or provide a backup for WAN failure," said Evan Davis, senior manager of solutions engineering at TRENDnet. "With Router Limits integrated into the router, business owners can gain full control and management of company internet access."

TRENDnet's wireless business router intelligently manages your office's web access with content filtering and productivity tools by Router Limits, increasing employee efficiency and reducing unnecessary distractions. TRENDnet will later integrate Router Limits content filtering and productivity technology into their wireless home router, the AC2600 MU-MIMO WiFi Router, model TEW-827DRU.

"We're excited to offer our world-class network productivity management and filtering tools on TRENDnet's new routers," said Tyler Phillips, director of business development at Router Limits. "By integrating our network user management tools with TRENDnet's hardware, we are creating a best-in-class solution, and we are aligning ourselves with a great company that is already a leading provider of routers and other network equipment in the business and home networking sectors. Our goal is to make this the first of many integrations with TRENDnet hardware."

The AC3000 Tri-Band Wireless Gigabit Dual-WAN VPN SMB Router, TEW-829DRU, is currently available online on the TRENDnet Store, and through select authorized distribution and retail partners.

Not enough antennas. 8 would have beaten the Netgear, D-Link and ASUS routers.
It's not really about the antenna's, it's more about the amplification behind it. You could have 10 antenna's and still have an output of less then 0.5watts. And the amplification also decides the strength of your wireless.

By going multiple antenna's, you can offer both 5GHz and 2.4Ghz at the same time without 'waiting'.

I knew something is wrong with me when the design of this router turned me on and it isn't the first time I felt this way.

I used to DJ in a strip club, and stopped getting turned on by the working girls, until a fully dressed female customer walked in. I thought she was the hottest thing I've ever seen and couldn't hold myself. I knew then it was time for me to quit my part time job and look for something that can re-normalize my senses.

Moral of story; too many RGB, Gaming hardware in the market. Minimalist & simple designs need a comeback really bad and this router fits that bill perfectly.
