Questions & Answers for TRENDnet TrendNet 300Mbps Wireless-N Home Router TEW-731BR

Question

Why have a 300Mbs router with only 10/100Mbps Ethernet switch for wired connection?

It would be rare for any website to allow over 100Mbps streaming to any individual IP, at the consumer level. But, to answer your question, 300Mbps is the theoretical maximum for "all" of your wireless devices. If you had a 100Mbps broadband maximum for three devices, and all three of those devices were using the internet at the same time via wifi, each device would be limited to 1/3 of that maximum, limiting each device to 33Mbps. If you have 4 devices, you would be limited to 25Mbps, again, assuming all devices were actively downloading. If someone had a 150Mbps broadband connection, they might be affected by such a limitation. Thus is the reason for 300Mbps wireless, even though individual LAN's are limited to 100Mbps. Plus, ethernet basically has 3 standards (10, 100, and 1000), so there is no 300Mbps Ethernet in existence. You can get routers with 1Gbps Ethernet connections, but they cost more. This router is designed as a budget router for those whose needs are met by the specification.

As I understand it the 300 Mbps refers to the total broadcast capacity of the router -- like an A/V system which says 600 watts but is divided among 6 speakers. The 10/100 for Ethernet has been a long-time standard and should be sufficient for data transfer needs (e.g. photos), but heavier usage might want a Gigabit port. Note that the throughput rate for each port is 10/100.

I am answering this question using a Windows 7 machine linked by this very router. If I answered "no" to this question, it is conceivable that a mental health evaluation may be appropriate.

Not sure what you mean. If you are referring to VOIP services, such as Vonage, Callcentric, MagicJack, etc. then yes. If you mean, is this router compatible with a DSL modem? The answer is also, yes.

Question

Does this router run hot (temp)?

Like some other brand names are known for? Range if placed in a basement?

Mine has been running for 48 hours, and it is no warmer now than it was without power. I can't speak for every unit, but mine runs very cool. It does have green power, so it's conceivable that the temperature could increase with heavy use (i.e. 1080p Streaming). Range if placed in a basement? Why on God's green earth would you do that? The general recommendation is to place wifi routers at a higher elevation, or at the very least, eye level, compared to all client devices. I do not have a basement, so I can not answer question #2.

Most routers are. It configures with a Web UI, so it would be compatible with any OS that supports internet connectivity and has a compatible browser. The instructions are easy, and the Web UI has a setup wizard. You should be fine.
