Summary: The access point works great. Like the design and the fact that it's PoE powered which allows for installing pretty much anywhere you can get an ethernet cable. I gave it a four only because we came in one morning and it was unavailable. Had to cycle power to it to gain access. Other than that one time it's been working as expected. Would buy again if or when the need comes up.

Summary: It has been over a year and a half and I'm still very pleased with this trendnet PoE access point. I am running two off a TPE-S44 PoE switch ( a newer greennet version is available with gigabit speeds) with no issues at all. At this site the unit is mounted using the provided base and mounting screws above a suspended ceiling into the concrete supporting the floor above. A simple a reliable physical installation.
Wish I has found these before, great litte access points!!

Summary: Installed this is an old concrete building, where its impossible to run new wires and outlets. They need wireless in a conference room, already had a cat 5 cable there. This was a breeze to set up and works like a charm. Don't forget the power injector for the other end. Take your time setting it up and you will be fine. If you don't understand what POE means, it means you can run this off the standard network cable, and don't need an outlet.
Summary: It works, but for some reason I am not getting fast speeds. I have checked the settings and they are all correct. Compared to my Aruba or Ubiquity access points, this thing lacks speed. Other than that, it's simple to set up. If you are not familiar with Wifi and just need something simple, I would start with this. This is JUST an access point.
Summary: I found it virtually impossible to access their website 192.168.10.100 where the wizard and other helpful instructions are to configure the 653AP. Accessing it is the second step in the configuring process.
Summary: Did not buy this off AMZ, but needed something in a hurry to solve the coverage problem in my home where, like many others, my wireless router was located at one end of the house, next to where the Internet service provider feed comes in. So I got one of these, and a PoE injector, as a semi-impulse buy from a local bricks & mortar store. It's ceiling-mounted, centrally on the house's second floor.
Summary: I needed an additional Access Point for my home and was looking for a device that would provide a highspeed connection using 802.11 B and N formats. The Trendent was easity to setup following the included instructions and the build in webpage to configure the devices. The Trendent can be powered using the included power supply and cable or can be powered using a POE adapter that can be purchased separately or with a switch or router that has POE Injection.
