Summary: This ones a stinker folks! I own an IT business and I've used many routers over the years. I actually read some poor reviews on this one, but decided to give it a try anyway. It was a big mistake. Router was glitchy from the start, constantly had to reboot it, then it just crapped out completely. Doesn't work at all anymore. If you're looking for an inexpensive router, I've had luck with TP-Link and even Zonet.
My first TrendNet after owning several Linksys and D-Link systems.
5 September 2011
Summary: This is my first TrendNet after owning several Linksys and D-Link systems. The unit has been running for about a month, with absolutely no issues. Anytime you change your wireless connection, a reconfiguration of your laptop and desktop PC security codes is needed. With the TrendNet system, it took limited to no effort for this change-over. The three antenna system allows me to direct the signal throughout the home, unlike a singe or dual antenna system.
"The worst piece of networking equipment I ever used."

Pros: Easy setup, many possibilities.
Cons: I have owned and used a lot of networking equipment, and for me this is the worst one ever. It seemed to work fine at first, but the moment I started using Skype with video, withing 20 seconds it would completely kill the internet speed. Even QoS wouldn't
"For hard-wired w/wireless use can't do better for $"

Pros: Very fast for hard-wired networking. Much stronger wireless signal throughout house than standard routers like my prior. Recommended it to friends, it improved their networks.
Cons: No serious cons yet. When applying any change to the router's setup, it applies each change individually and if necessary restarts, rather than waiting for one 'apply' choice. Firmware updates are crucial since recent ones solve serious issues, and prod
Pros: a) router with n.draft and gigabit switch b) under $70 c) Stable running firmware 184.108.40.206 on v2.0R of this router. d) Easy install and easy access to the web interface to configure necessary settings.
Cons: One thing it lacks is a basic content filter, which many routers in this price range have.
