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.
"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
Summary: Pros: Runs REALLY fast in comparison to my old netgear. Doesn't drop signal. Can host multiple wireless networks so you don't have to deal with the BGN incompatibility issues. Cons: I really haven't found any.
Summary: I have only n running on this. If you run g or b with n it will reduce the speed to minimum connected speed. For example .. if I run b/g/n all at the same time and connect my iPhone g network on it... it significantly reduces the speed and n I think also runs at 54mb/s speed of g. So use it for only n devices or buy a router that runs dual network at the same time and spend 150 dollars.
Pros: I bought it from an other online store after reading its review by Maximum PC Magazine. I pair it with one of my own build gaming PC on Gigabit port and my ACER Laptop. 10 feet away I transfered a one about 4.5gigs size video file b/w desktop connected to gigabit port and my acer laptop wireless n.
Summary: When setting up, connected to modem with no problem, but could not get connection to internet (even though my MagicJack worked for phone calls through router/modem). Tried all the normal troubleshooting including the reset to no avail. Called Tech support on a Sunday morning, got through right away and found out the reset had to be held in for 30 seconds (not in any instructions or online manual). Once that was done and settings rechecked, I was in business.
Pros: Easy to setup, not a glitch in signal for 4 days, strong signals to other network pcs (150 to older laptop, 300 to HTPC in another room). Works fine with both n and g connections. Came with latest firmware. Just works perfectly. Good tech support (24/7 toll free).
Cons: Instructions and firmware menu could be more explicit, especially regarding the newer security features.
Summary: This replaced my D-Link router which I had to reset couple of times a week. The router gets me through several weeks of heavy traffic (Internet and peer to peer) before requiring reset. I have excellent signal all around 2000 SQ/ft split level house.
Pros: Excellent range, no problem so far
Cons: Little too light - sometimes the router gets pulled off the table by weight of the cables.
