Caused serious headaches

Chris G., Newegg

  • Pros: When it worked, it was great...
  • 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...

Solid after some tweeking

Larry Gilbert, Amazon

  • 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.

Very easy to setup and install

Mark and Jen, Amazon
5 April 2014
  • Summary: I am using these two to link my home and my parents home, about .25 miles apart, using the WDS feature. I do have signal amplifiers and outdoor antenna installed to get the range. This makes it possible to connect anywhere in between the to homes. I would Bridge them, but I lose the WIFI access.

Easy to install and works great.

Mark (., Amazon
28 March 2014
  • Summary: I used this to replace a failing higher end WIFI router being used as an access point. I got better coverage, matching speeds, and was very easy to setup. I configured it at my desk without connecting to my LAN, had maintenance install it and needed no further configuration.
