  • Summary: This gets terrible range. If I stand right next to it, it's fine, but after walking 10 feet away it drops down to 2 bars and the speed goes way down.

  • Cons: Set-up as a regular AP required almost daily resets. On top of that it would regularly go into "fritz mode" and so overload the switch it was attached to, that it would practically take down the entire network. I have all the latest firmware and still the problem persists. This product is absolut...

  • Summary: These access points stop working for no reason. Have replaced 5 of them already. They lasted 3 years. I do like the fact that you can put the disc in your computer and it will find all of them on the network.

Solid after some tweeking

Larry Gilbert, Amazon
4 August 2014
  • Summary: I've had it installed and running without problems for a month. It is hardwired to a dlink router/wireless ap. On the other side of the house. I did however have a lot issues setting it up. Almost like clockwork every half hour or so the two devices would lock up freezing the entire network.

Great Wireless Access Point

Charlie D., Newegg
5 May 2014
  • Summary: I gave TrendNET a chance given it's price and the fact that I never heard of of them prior, but I was contracting my IT services to local small businesses and needed something cheap to extend their wireless network.
  • Pros: Excellent web interface; very clear and concise on the options I'm setting, and lots of flexibility in the available options. Works well with my Asus PCE-N15 PCIe WiFi cards.
  • Cons: Unfortunately the TrendNET PCI WiFi cards I bought to go with this unit have crapped out within two years of use.

  • Summary: Works well, a good value. The set up instructions are somewhat vague but we got thru it. Security setup needs to be clearer and better explained.
