Dead?

SHIRLEY S., Newegg
1 June 2013
  • Summary: I originally had ordered the TEW-684UB USB adapter, but that didn't work very well as it kept causing issues with my USB ports (whenever I tried to load a game + Skype/streaming videos, it would cause all USB ports to be undetectable.
  • Pros: Worked great initially, easy to set up (for me, anyways). Slim, easily fits in my work area.
  • Cons: Seems to be dead after less than 2-3 months of use. Granted, I am using it to play MMOs on my desktop (currently don't have a way to run an ethernet cable to my modem, as it's quite far away), but I expected more.

Worked well while it lasted.

Jeffrey P., Newegg
28 May 2013
  • Pros: When it worked, it was a great little device. The range was great and so was the speed.
  • Cons: This device's famous words were "Unable to complete ..." The wizard was terrible, it wasn't helping at all. It would ask you for a password, and state that the default was blank, obviously I instantly clicked Login, and it would state "Unable to login the device". After trying 2 or 3 times it wou...

Pain to Connect and Finally Died

Thomas Z., Newegg
16 January 2013
  • Summary: Again, when configured. runs well.
  • Pros: When I finally got it connected, worked well.
  • Cons: Took me literally hours to get it to configure. Would only configure on one of my 7 computers, all Win 7, all with plenty of juice and solid connections to router. I changed my router 3 times (identical DD-WRT configurations) and all other computers connected without a hitch. Not this. Had to rec...

Unstable Connection

Philip M., Newegg
6 October 2012
  • Summary: - "Setup" does not install itself, it is a standalone executable. - I figured out the GUI ip address is 1 number higher than what shows up as the address on the modem/ipconfig. Example: in the modem it shows up as 192.168.0.47, but the ip address for the GUI is 192.168.0.48.
  • Pros: - Uses my spare Ethernet port, so that's good. - Accessible via IP address to re-configure. - It works..?
  • Cons: - Often loses packets when pinging. - Unclear how to connect to the GUI without the setup tool.

Not a good product

Daniel O., Newegg
5 October 2012
  • Summary: Thought I could improve my throughput for a media server to my PS3 with this, but nope. Looks like I'll stick with my ol' reliable PS3 wifi connection. Love my TrendNet switch, but this is definitely a doozy.
  • Pros: It worked for about a week when I finally got it working. Newegg's awesome return policy.
  • Cons: Where do I start? First off, it all started when I tried to use WPS to pair it with my network. Multiple attempts, and no. Then I decided to use the setup software which worked fine. Hooked it up to my PS3 and then about every hour it needed to be reset. One hard reset later, I had to set it up a...

Good idea

Ted B., Newegg
3 May 2012
  • Summary: Also purchased their USB Dual Band adapter and it is a Jewel!
  • Pros: Easy to install and configure with enclosed CD. Big enough to be stable but small enough to be unobtrusive.`
  • Cons: Could not access the adapter through the web interface. This might have allowed me to trouble shoot the connection problems. The adapter would connect to the router then drop an reconnect in a loop once a load was placed on the adapter. Was able to pull up several web pages intermittently but the...

Not Good

Harrison F., Newegg
15 April 2012
  • Summary: So much delay on Dota 2 it was unplayable.
  • Pros: It does work.
  • Cons: I use this to connect my computer to my wireless router, not a video game system. It worked fine when my router was in the room next to me. Now the router is downstairs and my internet speed is terrible. Speed test DL speed 1.39 Mbps/UL speed .04 Mbps. Wow. I'm writing this on my 6 year old lapto...

Signal drops every 30 min!

Jaewan Y., Newegg
11 March 2012
  • Pros: Easy setup via WPS.
  • Cons: Wireless signal drops every 30 min! Then it picks up again. It drives me nuts! Purchased this wireless AP for upstairs where wireless signal was weak. I'm running SURFboard 6580 with 11n + 40 MHz, WPA-PSK, and other wireless devices works fine and consistently without a loss of signal in the down...
