TrendNet (http://www.trendnet.com) has released the US$69.99 300Mbps Wireless N Media Bridge, model TEW-640MB, which is designed to provide a high performance wireless connection for all networked media center devices.
The 300Mbps Wireless N Media Bridge connects a Ethernet-ready gaming console, network television, receiver, media controller, and DVR to a lag-free high-speed wireless n network, says Sonny Su, technology director of Trendnet. There’s no need to place your media center near a hardwired Internet connection-cut the cables and experience the high definition connection quality of the Wireless N Media Bridge, he adds.
Users who have a router with a WPS button require practically no setup. Power up the TEW-640MB, press the WPS button on your router, then the WPS button on the TEW-640MB, and it’s connected to your router and the Internet. Finally, network media center devices to the four Ethernet ports on the back of the TEW-640MB for instant Internet access.
Su says advanced Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) antenna technology eliminates wireless dead spots, while the latest in wireless encryption protects your digital network. WMM Quality of Service (QoS) technology prioritizes gaming, Internet calls, and video streams. LEDs on the front of the router convey device status.
