Typical TRENDnet experience

james b., Newegg
1 December 2011
  • Summary: I've bought at least 5 trendnet products before these and have returned every single one before because TRENDnet makes garbage, but hey, I thought, maybe this time will be different, and at $19.99 cyber monday pricing, why not??
  • Pros: The unit has a reasonably small form factor, an attractive design, and it's lightweight for cheap return shipping if you hate it.
  • Cons: I'd love to point out every bug and problem but I only get 1,000 chars so here's a brief overview:

So far, so good

ronald r., Newegg
3 March 2011
  • Summary: Got this to replace a G-only bridge for some extra WLAN speed. Throughput wasn't appreciably faster than the G bridge until I set this client's channel bandwidth to match my access point's channel bandwidth. It still plays nicely with the G clients remaining on my network. Up for approximately 16 hours and still maintains 108Mbps connection rate. AP logs indicate this thing drops & regenerates connection occasionally but it doesn't seem to interfere with use.
  • Pros: Price.
  • Cons: Direct IP configuration requires you to extract default IP from full user's manual; not listed in the quick start guide which only covers the Windows setup utility.

Great Product but you must set Static IP

Hans M., Newegg
1 February 2011
  • Summary: awesome product, but a somewhat techy person would fair better than others.
  • Pros: awesome my router is in another room and this thing runs great and keeps the clutter an ethernet cord running around my apartment under control. LOVE it after i got to work
  • Cons: YOU MUST GIVE IT A STATIC IP. If you are running a DD-WRT enabled router this will be a cake walk...but if not, might be a little difficult unless you can manually config your adapter to have a static IP so you dont keep losing connections...After assigning a Static IP and giving my XBOX priority QoS on my LAN, i have not experienced any issues or LAG.

Works but configuration is a bear

Nicholas V., Newegg
21 January 2011
  • Summary: I spent a long while trying to set it up with the included software. When on multiple networks (i.e. WLAN connected to the net, and using your LAN port to set this device up) the included software can detect and talk to the adapter. However, it cannot save any settings. So the configuration will always fail and you will get "unable to complete configuration" errors. So make sure to disconnect or disable all other connected network ports, then run the setup.
  • Pros: Great Signal Strength. Seems to hold a connection, once made.
  • Cons: Unbelievably difficult to setup if you are on a machine with more than one network adapter enabled.

Good for long-haul bridging.

Derek R., Newegg
8 December 2010
  • Summary: The IP address of the Gaming Adapter is only for management. It is not the IP of your Ethernet device. That still need to be set up by entering tan IP by hand or use DHCP. Your device simply jumps through the Gaming adapter as a bridge.
  • Pros: Is MUCH faster than the Zyxel 200Mbps Home Powerline stuff and more reliable.
  • Cons: Is a little hard to setup. Doen't reach anywhere near 300Mbps but to get the most out of the device:
