Very good for SOHO users

Anonymous, Newegg
25 March 2014
  • Summary: First bought this in January 2014. Initially I was very unimpressed with how the device performed and I had a heck of a time getting it to connect to my ISP. It also seemed to reboot at strange times. I initially thought the Feb.
  • Pros: Performs very well - both the wife and I noticed an improvement to the overall connection speed to our ISP over our previous cheap, off-the-shelf wifi/router combo. We can now run simultaneous HD video streams while also browsing the web, playing games, and everything else, and this thing doesn't...
  • Cons: The web interface suffers from some bugs, the most annoying of which is some of the buttons tend to jump around when you hover over them. There are also miscellaneous misspellings, and some of the terminology used for a few of the settings is awkward. Much like other devices in its class, 90% of ...

Great soho router for those who need bandwidth and reliability

J. Hop "J. Hop", Amazon
12 January 2014
  • Summary: I received hardware version 1.x, which is a blue metal cabinet instead of the grey metal. First thing to do is upgrade the firmware. Easy enough to find and install. Unit has all the normal functionality of a soho router, with the addition of a VPN end point which is great for accessing your...

Good Cheap Router

Kate W., Newegg
10 January 2014
  • Pros: Good cheap router with VPN. Was fairly reliable. Better than the Netgear it replaced. Nice WebGUI with a lot of options. Better than most low cost routers.
  • Cons: Cheap router = not the best stability. Still better than most others in this price range. VPN is handy and secure and not too big of a PITA to set up.

Great Price and Easy Setup, But Some VPN Issues

Mark Wolfgang, Amazon
1 January 2014
  • Summary: I bought this product so I could VPN in to my office from the road - no other reason, really. The initial product setup was very easy and I got connected to the net after replacing my other router within about 5 mins. Troubles came when I tried to VPN in via PPTP. I could not connect.

Easy hookup, somewhat tedious interface

  • Summary: This router seems to be running just fine since I installed it about a month ago. I am definitely getting better thoughput than on my previous router (old DLINK DL-614+). My only problem was with the interface.

VPN Server unreliable

literatti, Amazon
6 September 2013
  • Summary: I bought this to replace a wired Netgear VPN router that was on the blink. This router is performing much better and giving me much better download speeds with the gigabit WAN port. My only finding so far is that the PPTP VPN server is often unreliable from offsite.

Great for a small business that needs a VPN - See Updates

George, Amazon
30 August 2013
  • Summary: We were previously using two Netgear FVS318s to connect our satellite office to our main office. I recently discovered that the Netgear is limited to 10Mbps on the WAN port, and we have a 35/35 connection at the main office and a 50/25 at the satellite office, so an upgrade was in order.

Been pretty good!

Chad W., Newegg
13 March 2013
  • Summary: I'd pay for a rackmount kit, but it's fine on the rack shelf I have it on now.
  • Pros: Small, to the point, Built in power supply (HUGE PLUS!) Fast, and runs cool.... Oh, and it's METAL! Setup is VERY straightforward, this is a great thing. I was up and running VERY fast and even for someone not familiar with setting up routers the descriptions off to the left can be a great asset.
  • Cons: Only con is that it uses port 25 to email logs. Well, nobody really allows that anymore. Being able to change the SMTP port would be sweet. I have tried every syntax after the SMTP server to try it too.

Great Device

Robert O., Newegg
25 February 2013
  • Summary: other than the port issue, it's been stable and I am starting to buy more TrendNet products.
  • Pros: I thought the GUI was easy enough to nav around. I like the form factor and it runs quiet and this might sound odd, but the tempature is very low.
  • Cons: I was trying to open a 5 digit port number for my directTV unit but i am unable to do anything past 3 digits. from the unit help sidebar: Service Port - The numbers of External Ports. You can enter a service port or a range of service ports (the format is XXX - YYY, XXX is Start port, YYY is End ...
