Conclusion: This is a decent router, with a good software package. But before you can get to the software, you've got to get past the frustrating installation wizard. While it does "n" only in the 2.4-GHz band, performance is adequate, and it's available at a good price, considering all the features it offers.
Summary: The challenger pummeled the champ in our long-range performance, though, with the Trendnet achieving throughput several times faster than the Linksys when the client was placed outdoors. Trendnet’s TEW-639GR doesn’t offer enough advanced features to earn a spot on our Best of the Best list, but it is a solid performer with an attractive price tag and definitely worthy of consideration.
Pros: Fast throughput, especially at range; inexpensive.
Cons: Single-band only; very limited QoS features; ugly as sin.
