Signal Strength is horrible compared to other routers

bmandep, Ebay

  • Summary: My living room where I use my laptop is only 38 ft. from my office where the Trendware TEW-639GR Router is located and the signal strength stays at Low. Can definitely be better. I know this because I hooked up my friends Belkin N1 Wireless Router in the same spot and it goes from Excellent to Good.

Better stuff out there

  • Summary: Unless youre getting a really great deal on this, there are better models from TrendNet in the same price range. Ive had this for a few years, but it has been my second router relegated to the summer cabin. The drawbacks from the limited firmware has caused me not to use it to replace my primary router, TEW632BRP. I originally got it for the Gigabit ethernet.
  • Pros: enable/disable list items, good technical support.
  • Cons: Limited filtering capabilities, documentation does not match firmware.

LAN Port Starvation

Anonymous, Newegg
2 September 2009
  • Summary: I opened up a ticket with Trendnet. Let's see what they have to say. Note that all the high rankings for the wireless capability of this router are probably well deserved. However, I need to have the wired ports working since I need them to connect to my servers. If this issue is not resolved within a week, this router will probably become an open-boxed item on this website.
  • Pros: Wireless seems to work fine.
  • Cons: When 3 devices are attached to the LAN ports, heavy traffic between 2 ports starves the third port.

Good value, with some cons.

Andrey E., Newegg
2 September 2009
  • Summary: There is a firmware upgrade for this, but it did not solve any of the above issues.
  • Pros: Good value for the router.
  • Cons: This does feature gigabit Ethernet, but it is a HUB, not a switch. Depending on your usage this may not be acceptable.
