TRENDnet modem mixes ADSL 2, 802.11n

TRENDnet 11n ADSL 2 Modem

TRENDnet late Wednesday unveiled a hybrid modem and router that aims to provide faster speeds on both sides. The TEW-635BRM is the home to an ADSL 2 and 2+ modem that provides faster broadband up to 24Mbps downstream but also includes an 802.11n Wi-Fi router to share the connection at a theoretical peak of 300Mbps on the local network. It also carries a four-port, 100Mbps Ethernet switch for wired connections.

The modem carries a two-layer firewall system and supports the official Wi-Fi Protected Setup spec to simplify securing the wireless link with computers that support the format. Administration is handled over the web and so lets Linux and Mac users configure the device just as easily as on Windows.

TRENDnet doesn't list pricing for the device, though as a modem it will typically be bundled with service rather than sold by itself.

    why combine these?

    I think it's better to split the two devices, so you can switch between cable & DSL, and you can get a router that doesn't cripple 802.11n throughput by using 100baseT ports.
