TRENDnet 300Mbps Wireless Easy-N-Upgrader™ Receives Laptop Editor's Choice Award

TORRANCE, CA--(Marketwire - June 16, 2008) - TRENDnet, a best-in-class networking manufacturer of wired and wireless networking solutions, today announces that its first-to-market 300Mbps Wireless Easy-N-Upgrader™ (model TEW-637AP) has received Laptop Magazine's coveted Editor's Choice award. Admiring its sleek and compact design, Laptop Magazine was pleased with the product's ease of use, strong wireless performance, advanced security and attractive price point.

The 300Mbps Wireless Easy-N-Upgrader™ works right out of the box with no installation required. Wi-Fi Certification ensures that the product exceeds rigorous 802.11n networking specifications. Simply hardwire the 300Mbps Wireless Easy-N-Upgrader™ to any existing wired or wireless router to create a high speed wireless n network with up to 12 times the speed and 6 times the coverage of a wireless g network. Installation of the included CD is not required, however it is recommended in order to manage advanced security and performance features.

Laptop Magazine was pleased to discover the 300Mbps Wireless Easy-N-Upgrader™ supports advanced WPA2 wireless encryption. Typically, older routers only offer the easily-cracked WEP wireless encryption standard. The TEW-637AP allows users to upgrade their network security from WEP to the highly secure WPA2 wireless encryption. It also offers Wireless Protected Setup (WPS) that synchronizes peripheral wireless adapter security at the touch of a button.

"...we can wholeheartedly recommend the Easy-N-Upgrader...," stated John Brandon, reviewer for Laptop Magazine. "...this upgrade is perfect for those who want more speed but don't want to start from square one. It's one of the best and simplest Wi-Fi upgrades we've seen for the home and fulfills its promise."

"We are very excited about Laptop's Editor's Choice award. Our goal when developing this truly first-to-market solution was to deliver a high performance wireless product that works right out of the box, is easy to use, offers advanced security and is environmentally friendly," stated Sonny Su, Director of Technology for TRENDnet. "Based on this review and others, we can say that we hit the mark with the 300Mbps Wireless Easy-N-Upgrader™."
