At first glance the TEW-691GR 450Mbps Wireless N Gigabit Router really doesn't impress (although i do enjoy the glossy exterior) especially since it lacks the top color LCD screen we encountered with the TEW-673GRU which although not very...-

TrendNET’s TEW-691GR router and TEW-687GA Wi-Fi adapter are good products with certain downsides. Although they do have advanced hardware components and nice-looking exterior design, they have some problems on the software part. At the current moment it...-

TRENDnet’s TEW-691GR 450Mbps Wireless N Gigabit Router is a solid router. It is missing a couple features like connection logging and TCP/UDP timeout settings, but most users won’t even notice. One thing all users are likely to experience is...80

If you have read any of my other reviews, you have learned that I am lazy. This is not an opinion, this is a highly cultivated thesis. Monday through Friday 9am -5pm, I spend my time troubleshooting phantom issues for idiot users who break good...-

At $226, the TEW-691GR is fairly expensive and lacking in the value department, thanks to its lack of features. You don't get dual-band support, networked storage or printer sharing. It's tangibly faster than a number of routers, but is it worth...60

The Trendnet TEW-691GR 450Mbps Wireless-N gigabit router is a very fast single-band wireless router. Unfortunately, its good performance doesn't make up for its hefty price tag and lack of...75

I had no problems at all setting the router up, mostly because it has an intuitive firmware interface. If people do not know what some of the options are, they can consult the Help page in the router interface or can download the User Manual from the...-
