Summary: Worked great at first just had a double NAT problem. Suddenly the WPS light lit, and the unit locked up, stopped transmitting the WiFi signal, and acted as a simple switch. Contacted TrendNet Help Desk, and submitted a ticket in the hopes they can help.
Summary: My mom has trendnet router years ago its still working great, so I thought I would try a newer on to replace my old G D-Link gamer router with some N fastness. Easy set up, some game and other tweak options but nothing advanced. My 1st issue is with the speed, I did notice it was faster than my G, but in the same room and only a few feet from the router, on the 3 PC's I tested, all only ran about 120mbps.. with 150 being the fastest.
Summary: Bought this along with a TrendNet wireless N gaming adapter to connect xbox so I can stream netflix. It was pretty easy to set up and it worked well, speed is ample for streaming HD content. The big problem with it is that the connection to the wireless adapter is lost every couple of days, requiring me to hit the 'DPS' button on the router and adapter to re-establish connection.
Signal Strength is horrible compared to other routers
27 October 2010
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.
Summary: Got this router a couple months back and it dropped internet frequently (as in several times an hour), didn't even notice it at first because it would automatically reconnect after a couple seconds, but started noticing it when playing internet games. Tried installing the latest firmware, but no improvements (even did it two more times to be sure).
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.
Interoperation trouble with other Trendnet devices

Summary: I have Verizon FIOS with the Actiontec MI424-WR that has 'G' wireless that Vz thinks is perfectly fine looking to the future and has no plans to upgrade. I can't just change it out because that router has the coax connection that distributes the on-screen channel/program guide to a couple HD-dvr's and an HD stb. So that router and the broadband WAN connection is in the home office at one end of the hacienda.
Summary: A basic wireless router which has features and functions that generally work as advertised, including port fowarding. Most home users wouldn't need any more. The 3yr warranty is best in industry, just hope you don't need to collect. Simple to set-up & configure ( ignore CD): First, plug in router, connect to modem and PC via ethernet cables; then disconnect power to modem and router. Then, re-connect power to modem and wait for about 30 secs.
