TRENDnet® Launches First to Market 300Mbps Wireless Easy-N-Upgrader™

Upgrade Your Aging Wired or Wireless Router to High Performance Wireless N With TRENDnet's First to Market 300Mbps Wireless Easy-N-Upgrader™

TORRANCE, CA--(Marketwire - January 7, 2008) - TRENDnet, a best-in-class networking manufacturer of wired and wireless networking, today launches the first to market 300Mbps Wireless Easy-N-Upgrader™ (Model TEW-637AP). Want seamless wireless Internet access from anywhere in your home? Don't throw away your old, perfectly functioning router. Connect the 300Mbps Wireless Easy-N-Upgrader™ to your existing wired or wireless router and upgrade it to wireless n with up to 12 times the speed and 6 times the coverage of a wireless g network. The 300Mbps Wireless Easy-N-Upgrader™ is designed around ease of installation, ease of use, performance and environmental friendliness.

One of the most challenging steps for many consumers is to simply install a networking device such as a router. Many phases of a typical installation process can be confusing. The compact TEW-637AP simplifies the process by cutting the number of installation steps in half and automating the installation process where possible.

Connecting a computer for the first time to a wireless network can be a time consuming task. Wireless Protected Setup (WPS) technology is designed to automatically setup networked devices at the touch of a button. Simply press the WPS button on the 300Mbps Wireless Easy-N-Upgrader™ and it will automatically detect and integrate wireless network devices that support this technology.

Help the environment by extending the life of your existing router. As well, the compact 300Mbps Wireless Easy-N-Upgrader™ is made with lower levels of harmful substances such as lead, mercury, cadmium and chromium thereby reducing its environmental impact.

"The 300Mbps Wireless Easy-N-Upgrader™ is cute, compact and environmentally friendly. Now you don't have to throw away your old router to enjoy wireless n speeds," stated Brian Chu, Director of Information Technology for TRENDnet. "We have listened to consumer feedback and created a new industry leading installation process that is highly intuitive. We expect the TEW-637AP to gain significant market traction."

Pricing for the 300Mbps Wireless Easy-N-Upgrader™ is targeted 15%-20% below that of wireless n routers.
