  • Cons: It wasn't so easy to get installed.

Do NOT Buy.

  • Summary: The router is a piece of junk. This will not connect via DHCP to my ISP, Comcast. The modem is confirmed to work fine, so it is not a Comcast problem (surprizingly). The router appears to save my WPA wireless security settings, but no devices will connect using the password specified. It's also worth noting that this router is not DD-WRT compatable. I bought this at Microcenter and will be returning promptly tomorrow. As my inklings told me while I was in the store...

10/22/13 DHS Warning- TENDA wireless hackable

J.M.B., Amazon
2 April 2013
  • Summary: Here's my good deed of the day: a DHS daily email referred me to this article which states TENDA wireless routers from China have a hidden back door allowing access to your network. Here's a quote from the article: "My shiny new ReaverPro box made relatively short work of cracking WPS," he claimed, "providing access to the WLAN and a subsequent root shell on the router.

Looks nice, works great...but

Raoul, Amazon

  • Summary: I was attracted to the price of this router, only $20 at Microcenter. The setup process seemed quite easy, although the instruction sheet needs a LOT of work to clean up the English (why can't they ever hire a native speaker for an editor?) When I set it up, it worked great on the cable-connected Ethernet ports. However, when I tried to update the firmware, the unit kept freezing before completion. And then during reboot, it freezes up again, too.

well worth the money

Slimmer, Amazon

  • Summary: This is my third router over the years. It's my fifth if I count the two that I returned. The very first one is made by D-Link. It could not even download a file correctly. That was really terrible. It should have been on the market. Then I bought linksys WRT54G. It was average. Several years ago, I switched to Trendnet TEW-432BRP. I think the Trendnet router is much better. However, recently, the Ethernet link will drop during busy hours for some reason.

  • Summary: Have AT&T as ISP. Had an issue getting the router config with modem. But was able to reach Tenda technical support( after a few days trying to reach someone on the phone. Prior getting TS was about to take router back to Microcenter) and was able to get the router config correctly to modem. Works just fine now! Wireless works great with ipad and laptop. So, call TS if you run into problems getting router to config with DSL/Cable modem.
