Outofthebox = Stupid; Firmware upload + static IP = Good.

N. Kim, Amazon

  • Summary: Even before running the setup, first thing you need to do should be to connect it to a PC with UTP cable, then upload the firmware (tew-647gav2(1.01.75) from TRENDnet website). Only then, run the setup. Now, wireless connection won't drop every few hours. I did blindly try WPS like 100 times before firmware upgrade. It didn't stay on at all. So, I uploaded the firmware and gave it a static IP.

Works, But May Have You Sweat To Set It Up!

  • Summary: The instructions that come with the TRENDNet are woefully inadequate IF the device does not work with the quick start up instructions (Quick Installation Guide), as in my installation. Regardless of the setup, the first thing to do is to check online at trendnet.com for firmware upgrades to the 647GA. You can also find other helpful information at their website, too. Make sure you do NOT use a wireless connection to your Trendnet to upgrade the firmware.

Save Yourself the Hassle if Using on Xbox 360 - Get the Microsoft Adapter Instead

Amazon Customer, Amazon
2 December 2009
  • Summary: I purchased this for one reason, it was an "N" band adapter that could be used on the XBox 360 and was less expensive than the Microsoft "N" adapter. I was, oh, so looking that the Trendnet adapter would work well given it's price point. I wanted "N" band as I'm looking to use my XBox to stream music and videos in addition to playing games.
