TRENDnet has begun shipping its latest network device, the TEW-654TR Wireless N travel router kit. The router supports theoretical transfer speeds of up to 300Mb/s, although typical results will likely be slower. A compact housing measures just 60 x 80 x 18.5mm, while users can power the device from either an included AC adapter or USB cable.
The travel router is backwards compatible with 802.11b and 802.11g specifications, while the antenna supports Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) technology. Wireless encryption standards include 64/128-bit WEP, WPA/WPA2-Radius, and WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK.
The TEW-654TR works on Mac, Windows and Linux systems, while North American pricing should fall around $75. The package includes an AC adapter, USB cord, three-foot Ethernet cable and a carrying case.
