The Trendnet TEW-639GR Wireless N Gigabit Router is a decent investment for Wireless-N home networking, offering a decent package at an affordable price.

[ music ] ^M00:00:03 >> Hello this is Dong Ngo on CNET.com and I have with me here the Wireless N Gigabit Router TEW-639GR from TRENDnet. The router is probably the most affordable gigabit wireless end router on the market, costing just $70.00. There are many other wireless end routers that are cheaper, but none comes with the support for gigabit Ethernet. This router has a traditional design with three antennas sticking up from its back where the ports are. There are one wan port and four lan ports. The wan port it is to connect with Internet, for example, via a cable modem. And the lan ports are for any Ethernet ready devices. On the front of the router there's an array of LED lights that indicate the status of the network ports, the Internet connection, and the wireless network, and so on. The router support wireless end dual stream, [phonetic] meaning its wireless speed capped at 300 megabit per second. The router also support the WiFi protected set up feature that allows for adding clients to its wireless network via a press of a button. The TEW-639GR performed decently in our testing, with good throughput speeds. It's rams [phonetic] and wireless signal stay good, however could be better. For more information on this check out the full review at CNET.com. My name is Dong Ngo, and this has been the first look at the Wireless N Gigabit Router TEW-639GR from TRENDnet. ^E00:01:26
