Others/Networking Gear by stefan @ 2011-12-19

The 450Mbps Dual Band Wireless N HD Media Bridge from TRENDnet is a high performance adapter and with its help we can connect to our local WiFi network (2.4Ghz or 5GHz) up to 4 devices at the same time (like a PS2, PS3, HTPC and a standalone media center).
