Download Router Firmware TRENDnet TEW-692GR. Present when another router running at 450Mbps Wireless N (max) with simultaneous dual-band has come, reach speeds of up to 450Mbps in the 2.4GHz band and other 450Mbps on the 5GHz thanks to the Three Stream technology. The name is TRENDnet TEW-692GR and willing to outperform other routers of competition in both performance and scope Wireless. This team is the older brother of the famous TRENDnet TEW-691GR of that we have a complete analysis. This analysis is divided into three distinct parts (such as those usually come by), external inspection where we see the router on the outside, internal analysis where dismantle the equipment for each component and finally our laboratory Ethernet and Wireless tests to check your yield.
This new router comes in a box of dimensions very similar to its predecessor TEW-691GR, on the right we can see a small graphic where different modes of Wireless N with their respective velocities are, this router today is the top as wireless performance range because we can get up to 900Mbps maximum transfer (450Mbps in 2.4GHz and 5GHz 450Mbps) although in practice never reach these speeds. At the rear, as usual, found a small outline of how you can use our new router. It also indicates the main LEDs, buttons and ethernet ports we have in it. At the bottom we have a little blurb from other teams like this, include the TRENDnet TEW-684UB and who also works in the 5GHz band with 450Mbps. We took everything out of the box and found the TRENDnet TEW-692GR router, ethernet cable, installation guide, a CD, the feeder and stand to put the router in portrait mode, this is news that the TEW-691GR not incorporated. Here we can see the router at its best. In the upper left indicates 450Mbps working in the upper right indicates that incorporates a power saving (GREENnet) to avoid wasting electricity. We remind you that external antennas belong to the 5GHz band, has 3 gain 3dBi antennas each, and are not removable, like antennas TEW-691GR. In the opposing party antennas are more vents, RESET button and something that can go unnoticed. Look at the vent at the ends of the grids we see that are wider than the other, this is the support to put the router in portrait mode.
Before starting the tests had doubts whether TRENDnet had it improved in this important today aspect, as the previous model TEW-691GR not give the size in this test, but then reality with P2P behaved in a excellently. The new TEW-692GR completely sweeps its predecessor with very good results, although not reaching the results we get if we use routers with NAT via hardware, another highlight is that the Cisco Linksys E4200 that has no hardware NAT, wins the game in this respect although we repeat that in real P2P tests we have not had any problems and always down for private trackers at maximum line speed (1.6MB / s) and also with JDownloader with 150 connections (15 each link connections with 10 simultaneous connections).
We were excited to see with our own eyes for a wireless battle between this computer and the Cisco Linksys E4200, then you expose our opinion. 2.4GHz band: As I said before, we thought that performance in this band would see handicapped by the absence of external antennas and by decreasing the antenna gain. The performance we obtained was not affected too much by this design decision, however, thanks to this, we can enjoy the 5GHz band. Compared with the Cisco Linksys E4200 we can say that the winner by a landslide was the TRENDnet TEW-692GR even in remote places to AP better the E4200. 5GHz Band: The Achilles heel of the 5GHz band is that if we are far from the access point, performance decreases dramatically. Otherwise this band before, compared with Cisco Linksys E4200 occurs right, the TRENDnet behaves much better in remote areas, however, in places near the AP Cisco Linksys E4200 wins by a landslide.
The latest model of TRENDnet has surprised us pleasantly, we have obtained a very good wireless performance not only in the 2.4GHz band as the previous model, but in the 5GHz band has also been very good. If you are looking for a team to shine for performance Wireless, will recommend this new model. It seems to follow the trend of which is synonymous with TRENDnet wireless speed and few teams make their shadow in this regard, especially if we have other teams in the same range as: TRENDnet TEW-691GR. The LAN-LAN and LAN-WAN performance with respect to the TEW-691GR has greatly improved but is still below other manufacturers. We conducted tests Bittorrent and multiple connections with JDownloader and have not had problems for our internet speed (1.5MB / s), although it has hardware NAT, is not implemented in the firmware.
For all this, the TEW-692GR will from now my main router. The TEW-691GR it was not for the terrible inconsistency with my wireless laptop card, but as the 5GHz band this works perfectly, it's time to retire my old router. Although as we said in the previous analysis, we repeat: We expect the technical team TRENDnet develops new firmware integrating more advanced options such as OpenVPN or captive portal, but above all, to provide us with a team like this but with a USB port (and complementary applications necessary) to get the most out of internet.
WARNING..! Please Do not upgrade firmware on any TRENDnet product using wireless connection.
The firmware upgrade over wireless connection may damage the product. Please perform the firmware upgrade via "wired" network connection only
