TRENDnet’s AC3000 Tri-Band Wireless Gigabit Dual-WAN VPN SMB Router, model TEW-829DRU, features three concurrent WiFi bands to maximize device networking speeds: two separate high performance 802.11ac networks (5GHz1: 1733Mbps / 5GHz2: 867Mbps), and a 400Mbps Wireless N network. It features dual-WAN ports for load balancing or fail-over modes, and encrypted Virtual Private Network (VPN) access for remote users. Dual-WAN ports smooth network loading, minimize network downtime, and allow employees to access your network from the Internet—all with a single router.

This wireless router features advanced management, QoS, VLAN, VPN, and other capabilities to ensure optimal performance, scalability, and protection of your network. Intelligently manage your offices’ web access with our advanced contenting filtering tool, increase employee productivity and finally take control of your internet.

Connect up to two separate WAN internet connections to efficiently load-balance traffic by distributing network traffic to the best available link, or configure for redundancy using the WAN fail-over mode.
Create an encrypted VPN tunnel to access local area network resources remotely using IPSec, PPTP, L2TP w/ IPsec, and SSL VPN protocols.

*Maximum wireless signal rates are referenced from IEEE 802.11 theoretical specifications. Actual data throughput and coverage will vary depending on interference, network traffic, building materials and other conditions. For maximum performance of up to 1.733 Gbps use with a 1.733 Gbps 802.11ac wireless adapter. For maximum performance of up to 867 Mbps, use with an 867 Mbps 802.11n wireless adapter. For maximum performance of up to 400 Mbps, use with an 400 Mbps 802.11n wireless adapter. Multi-User MIMO (MU-MIMO) requires the use of multiple MU-MIMO enabled wireless adapters.
