TRENDnet® Announces Open Source DD-WRT Compatibility for Wireless AC Routers

TORRANCE, CA--(Marketwired - May 14, 2014) - TRENDnet, a best-in-class wired and wireless networking hardware brand, today announces open source DD-WRT firmware compatibility for the high performance TEW-818DRU (v1.0), TEW-812DRU (v2.0), and TEW-811DRU (v1.0), Wireless AC routers*.

DD-WRT is the leading Linux based alternative open source firmware for wireless routers and access points. DD-WRT unlocks operational modes such as using a router as a wireless extender, client bridge, or access point. It also offers a comprehensive set of controls including the ability to modify wireless radio power, define advance access controls, choose from a greater DDNS service support list, create a Wi-Fi hotspot, setup VLANs for the router's wired ports, define advanced USB port functionality, manage enhanced QoS controls, and more.

"Networking prosumers and enthusiasts let us know how much value DD-WRT firmware," stated Zak Wood, director of global marketing for TRENDnet. "Based on consumer feedback, we have opened our three highest performance routers to the popular DD-WRT firmware."
