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...
Summary: Installation was easy but maintaining a signal is near impossible. I was using it on my computer at first and I had to reboot multiple time just to get a signal. It usually disconnects from my router after 20 minutes.
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...
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
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...
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...
Summary: I was testing a new media server to my DLNA tv and it was working fine. today it can't find a device. I remove from tv and connect to my pc and no device found. both the power led and device connected led light up, but no wireless led.
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.
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.
