Dual band AC routers are popping out all over and now TRENDnet has announced the TEW-812DRU. This bad boy is capable of producing one band over wireless N at 450Mbps for your everyday devices plus another 1.3Gbps bandwidth on the AC band for streaming HD media to your TV and other media devices. TRENDnet built it to handle multiple HD streams simultaneously for the well connected home. It also offers Multiple User MIMO technology so the router can communicate with multiple devices at once so as to get the best possible efficiency. The router also accepts USB flash or NAS drive inputs to share media across the network. Of course, gigabit ports are available for fast wired connections as well.
