The TEW-692GR also features Wi-Fi Protected Set-up (WPS) and wired Gigabit Ethernet ports for easy connectivity with other devices.

Sonny Su, Technology Director for TRENDnet said that "a true 450Mbps concurrent router will provide networking enthusiast[s] with another great option. With the proliferation of so many wireless networked devices, performance matters more than ever before."

The TEW-692GR wireless router should be available in April for around US$249.99 and will be backed by a three year warranty.
