More and more home based businesses are springing up these days; with billions being made through internet business people are dropping the shackles of office over head and cozying up to the home based business ideas. We are starting to see rack mount intranet and serious networking moving into the spare rooms of people’s homes, why? In order to do business you can waste time with slow wireless g and 10/100 routers just don’t keep up to the speed of business anymore and it is time to upgrade. Not just home based businesses have this new found need for speed, serious media enthusiasts need the full speed of their routers in-order to stream the new HD media types coming out. Let’s see what Trendnet has in store for us with its two latest models the TEW-639GR Wireless N Gigabit Router and the TEW-624UB Wireless N USB Dongle:
