Summary: It is now 3 year old. The interface is bizzare, but works VERY well. At this time, look for AC as (B G N) are phasing out. AC can provide up to 1GHZ but your adapter must support that standard. Still a good buy moving forward past 2014 AC will be the standard for all new WIFI. Overall router is a 3 and needs an advance user to fully understand the interface. :) MCSE, CCNA, <<< Advanced.
Summary: I'm not completely ignorant when it comes to computer issues but I'm also not a computer genius. When I began watching a large amount of online video on Netflix and other online services I decided to get a new router that was advertised as being fast. I got rid of my Linksys router and installed this router. Nothing about the transition was easy. To get this new router to work took a considerable amount of time and required calls to tech support.
Summary: This thing sucked! It worked out of the box but the wireless signal was horrendous. It couldn't get through the walls of my home. Through one wall, I could only get 2 bars where my old Linksys wireless router (before it died) was able to give me full bars from the same spot in my home. I wouldn't recommend this router unless there aren't any wall involved.
Summary: Bought for son's apartment to replace an old G Linksys router. Placement was a challenge as only usable location was bottom shelf of a book case. I need to experiment remotely trying to get better coverage in apartment. Product was very easy to set-up and configure.
Summary: Works well once you configure it properly. For starters, the radio broadcasts in Wireless B/G by default. Once I figured this out, I changed the broadcast to N entirely as I no longer need G. Device also lets you broadcast multiple wireless networks with multiple different levels of security (does not appear to have an option to separate one network's traffic to another though) Pros: - Really stable - Has a lot of higher end features (comes with a feature resembling port...
Summary: I ordered a TrendNet TEW-639GR router, for whatever reason, i couldn't connect to the router. Returning this product was a breeze. Submit a request and UPS picked it up the next day. Welcome to the 'virtual' age of customer service, it couldn't be easier. I ended up ordering a newer model, it's working great. Great prices, Great returns, Greatly satisfied.
Summary: The unit is a good router, however, the unit had to have the software updated to get it to function...... although new, the unit was over a year and a half old.... (I spent over an hour talking to a Trendnet technician in India before the unit functioned properly!
Frequent reboots required even with latest firmware - stay away

Summary: I've fought this router for 6 months now. Requires a reboot nearly every day, and more often with the more devices on network. Bottom line, it does not function in its most basic task, steer clear. I had a TRENDnet unit prior to this one that lasted for 3 years, so I tried the brand again despite that one failing. Looking at the reviews online it appears the rebooting is a common problem.
