Successful TrendNET TEW-639GR setup w/ 720p + 5.1 Audio

Postby Arlieth » Tue Mar 01, 2011 10:31 am

I recently picked up two TrendNET TEW-639GR 300mbps Wireless N Gigabit routers with WDS (Wireless Distribution Support aka Access Point) and hooked one up to my PS3 with a CAT6 in WDS mode. Streaming 720p video with "keyint=1:vqscale=1:vqmin=2" video settings and AC3 5.1 @ 640kbps without a hitch, max bitrate peaked at around 55mbps. Wondering how much further I can push it. I still haven't quite optimized my antenna positioning (signal strength is around 60% between the two routers) and WDS cuts available bandwidth by half, so I figure I still have at least 100mbps streaming capacity. This is stock firmware, btw. Just wanted to share a success story with hardware in case anyone was thinking of picking this router up. It's relatively cheap for a 300mbps N router + gigabit ($60.00 on Amazon).

EDIT: Peak hit 83558kb/s no problem. Wondering what 1080i video bitrates are like...

I'm trying to replicate the exact same setup. PS3 wired to TEW-639GR (in WDS mode), and another TEW-639GR hooked to the internet.

I can't get the two TEW-639GR router to talk to each other. Each has WDS enabled, with the other's MAC address in the table, but no luck. I'm using WPA2+PSK for security, but I doubt that's the source of my problem. Did you have to do anything particular for your setup to work?

Did you set both routers to the same static chanel?
By default the routers ship with "auto" chanel selection enabled, but they must be sharing both the same chanel and SSID to properly run WDS.
(This hung me up for a bit when setting up this exact same scenario... once I nailed that down everything worked great!)
