The TEW-828DRU (Version v1.1R) has been discontinued. 

TRENDnet’s AC3200 extreme performance Tri Band Wireless Router, model TEW-828DRU, produces three concurrent wireless networks—two separate 1300 Mbps Wireless AC networks and a 600 Mbps Wireless N network. Smart Connect technology automatically groups slower and faster AC devices to separate WiFi AC bands. High performance Gigabit ports, a 1 GHz dual core processor, six high gain antennas, high power amplifiers, and a SuperSpeed USB 3.0 share port deliver extraordinary networking speed and range.

AC3200 - For Busy Homes AC3200 - Smart Connect AC3200 - Protection
For Busy Homes
Three concurrent extreme WiFi networks and all Gigabit ports seamlessly handle the explosion of connected home devices and high bandwidth streams such as 4K video.
Smart Connect Technology
Smart Connect automatically manages both 1.3 Gbps WiFi AC bands by grouping slower devices on one band and faster devices on the highest performing band.
Network Protection Tools
TRENDnet includes tools to help protect your home network including parental controls, guest networks isolated from your devices/content, and pre-encrypted WiFi.

AC3200 Tri Band Simultaneous AC3200 Tri Band
Three concurrent WiFi bands maximize device networking speeds: two separate extreme performance 1300 Mbps Wireless AC networks and a 600 Mbps Wireless N network
AC3200 Smart Connect Smart Connect Technology
Smart Connect technology virtually combines the two separate WiFi AC bands, so that only one WiFi AC network is visible, while managing each band individually. Slower and faster WiFi AC devices are grouped together and automatically assigned to the two separate WiFi AC bands, thereby optimizing networking speeds
