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.

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.
TRENDnet 300Mbps Wireless N Access Point TEW-638APB (Black)

Summary: Very good device for the price. Used it as a wireless access point in the upstairs of my house. it is wired to a trendnet green 5 port non managed switch in one room with a wireless access device (Roku 3) in another room. Streams HD great without any buffering issues. Great Buy
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.
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.
