TRENDnet announces 300Mbps Wireless Easy-N-Upgrader


It looks like those wanting to get in on some of that 802.11n action on the (relative) cheap could soon be getting the fix they're looking for from TRENDnet, which has just announced its new 300Mbps Wireless Easy-N-Upgrader device. That, as you might have guessed, will let you upgrade your existing router (wired or wireless) to 802.11n, giving you twelve times the speed and six times the coverage of a standard wireless g network "at the touch of a button," according to the company. Given that description, we're guessing the device effectively replaces your old router more than it "upgrades" it, but TRENDnet says it'll come in at a price 15-20% below that of standalone wireless n routers, so we can't complain too much. Still no word on a release though, but TRENDnet promises it'll be the first device of its kind to market, so we'd expect it relatively soon if they want to hold on to that claim.
