Not worth the plastic it's made of.

Charles B., Newegg
17 July 2014
  • Summary: Other thoughts you ask? I personally never owned a trendnet product that wasn't a total piece of junk, it won't even hold down a piece of paper it's so light, that must explain everything. It seems they are notorious for dropping connection.
  • Pros: It works... sometimes.
  • Cons: Hahaha... where do I even begin? Constantly drops connection, hooked up to xbox, it connects for 2 to 5 minutes at a time, every now and then there is the one 30 minutes of connection. Cannot upgrade firmware, don't even try, it detects every single browser under the sun as chrome in which a mess...

Worst Purchase Ever!!!

Edward C., Newegg
16 August 2013
  • Pros: None, Never able to use it.
  • Cons: There are no Pro's to this and I thought the people who wrote some of the reviews did not know what they were doing. It might be a software or hardware issue... It cannot even see my SSID or any for that matter, then it see's it. It is not consistent at all...

Completely useless

Goncalo M., Newegg
18 July 2013
  • Summary: I bought this at $20. Every time you see these 50% off deals you know something is up. The quality control is atrocious. Whenever you see the problem being software/firmware related it is a clear sign that basic quality checks are simply not in place.
  • Pros: Absolutely none, it never worked
  • Cons: - Could not change password - could not connect to any of the 3 networks I tried (2 secured, 1 open) - the famous "unable to..." message shows at almost every step

Don't count on an RMA

Ernest G., Newegg
16 July 2013
  • Summary: Not good for streaming video through consoles. Seems to have more problems as Xbox upgrades their services.
  • Pros: Works well for a while.
  • Cons: After it quits working, and it will, they don't respond to RMA requests after filling out their forms on their website.

Garbage

Eric W., Newegg
25 May 2013
  • Pros: Didn't immediately burst into flame? All the lights come on and in the setup utility the device can see the wireless access points in my area.
  • Cons: I attempted to use the setup utility (manual setup) as I don't have a WPS button on either of my wireless access points. The setup utility could locate the TEW-647GA but changing any configuration (even just setting the password) always ended with "Unable to complete the configuration" message. T...

DON'T Waste your money!

Paul C., Newegg
20 May 2013
  • Summary: Easy one touch WPS button work on other products I have just not on these adapters. Weird
  • Pros: Worked first time it was setup when new on a old white xbox 360. When it worked it worked well and could have been a great way to get wireless connection to old xbox 360. I also have two new black slim xbox's so these adapters are headed to the trash.
  • Cons: It no longer would work after about a month. This was my second adapter from Trendnet thought well the first one was just a lemon. Maybe setup was beyond my technical ability. Called Trendnet and they were no help so now I got two of these that don't work and and old xbox 360 with no network conn...

  • Pros: It worked good while it lasted.
  • Cons: Lasted barely 2-years. I used it very little. I haven't tried to use it in over 6-months.

Not the best

Michael P., Newegg
26 January 2013
  • Pros: none worked out the box
  • Cons: No telephone support, bought to use as a wireless adapter for my grandsons desktop computer. Worked on setting it up for 3 hours. No go. Instructions aren't the best in the world either. Will probably never buy another Trendnet product. This one has left a bad taste in my mouth.

2 years dead

Tyler L., Newegg
22 January 2013
  • Summary: One thing with this unit you have to run the install wizard to use. That is the only way you can set up to the device.
  • Pros: When it worked it was great.
  • Cons: I got this 2 years ago at Christmas time and it just died.only two years of service that is Unacceptable in my book.
