TRENDnet’s AC2600 StreamBoost MU-MIMO WiFi Router, model TEW-827DRU, is built to perform in a busy connected home. It generates two extreme quad-stream WiFi networks—a 1,733 Mbps WiFi AC and a concurrent 800 Mbps WiFi N network. MU-MIMO technology processes multiple data streams simultaneously, increasing real-time WiFi performance when multiple devices access the network. Qualcomm® StreamBoost technology prioritizes low latency gaming and voice streams, shapes network traffic to optimize each connected experience, and graphically displays all connected device/app traffic. Use the Gigabit Ethernet ports and USB 3.0 share ports to further extend an extreme performance home network.

*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 800 Mbps, use with an 800 Mbps 802.11n wireless adapter. Multi-User MIMO (MU-MIMO) requires the use of multiple MU-MIMO enabled wireless adapters.
** Due to regulatory requirements, the wireless channels specified cannot be statically assigned, but will be available within the available wireless channels when set to auto.
