Wireless device manufacturer TRENDnet, a 20-year-old US company, met with ThinkComputers at CES to show a few of its new products. The company isn’t terribly well-known in the US, but is a very strong brand in Europe (primarily France), Russia, and several South American countries. TRENDnet is setting its sights on the US market, though, aggressively marketing itself and focusing on being first-to-market with its technologies. TRENDnet currently has the most popular gaming adapter on the market in the US. Gaming adapters are used for console systems and other devices which lack wireless NICs or the ability to add one via USB or PCI. TRENDnet made a flurry of announcements at CES.

IOGear has traditionally been a very IT-oriented company. Its core technology was KVM–a device to which a user connects a single keyboard, video (monitor), and mouse in order to control one of several connected computers. A few years ago, IOGear diversified and began marketing mobility and desktop accessories. This year, IOGear devoted itself to “convergence through connectivity,” continuing its diversification into the home audio/video market, but also introduces some new products in its existing product areas.

It unifies 802.11n wireless with a 10/100 switch and a lone USB port, which ASUS thinks your all-in-one printer would love. ThinkComputers reviews the ASUS RT-N13U wireless router.
