The TRENDnet TEW-633GR's performance was similar to that of the D-Link DIR-655 Xtreme N Gigabit Router, whose chipset it shares, with very good throughput overall, especially at short range.

The TRENDnet TEW-633GR's case can be mounted horizontally, vertically, or on a wall, so you have flexibility in positioning it for best reception.

Although the TRENDnet TEW-633GR is certainly a capable router, it lacks some useful extra features (such as a USB port and a guest access mode) that we looked for, and because of that it doesn't seem as good a value as some competing £100 models, such as the Belkin N+ Wireless Router F5D8235-4 and the D-Link DIR-655.


The TRENDnet TEW-633GR enjoys very good short-range throughput, has comprehensive features and web utility. But its long-range performance is below par, and there's no USB port for drive or printer sharing.
