Summary: Does so much more than a standard router and you have control, still haven't figured out all the settings I need to modify. You can just plug it in and go and at least set-up a Wi-Fi password fairly easily
Summary: I had high hopes for this router. I've only had it a day, but I regret buying it. I'm looking for a replacement right now, and plan to return this. Apologies for a rambling, poorly structured review; I'm quite tired right now! First of all, it has to reboot after seemingly every little change.
TRENDnet TEW-673GRU GREENnet 300 Mbps Concurrent Dual Band Wireless N Gigabit Router

Summary: This router met most of my expectations. Like with any router, there are nuances. The things I like: 1. Stability. This router has stayed up through the most rigourous movement of data. I have tested it with a bridged ethernet internet pipe with bandwidth limits set to 100Mbps down and 100Mbps up.
Summary: ...to set up. TrendNet is no longer supporting this item (replaced by TEW091RGU). It took me several iterations (an hour or so) to set up and include all my wired and wireless items. For this product to work appropriately, set up your router security as WPA2-AES (nothing else).
Summary: I purchased (appealing due to price) this after having some problems with the Netgear WNDR3700 (which I returned to Amazon). I needed the 5ghz range due to neighborhood congestion in 2.4 I was surprised that the 5ghz signal was stronger and more consistent than the Netgear.
Summary: Pros: Easy setup and worked right out of the box. This router has amazing performance and loaded with features that are found in higher end routers nearly twice its price. Works well and has enough range to cover my entire house. The LCD screen is pretty neat and informative.
Summary: My number one requirement was for simultaneously dual-band access point. I didn't need routing, but this costs less than the TEW-670AP access point. And it's a good solution. But don't expect a lot of features. For instance, don't expect a way to adjust the wireless signal strength.
Summary: I bought this one as a replacement for my aging DI-624. Initial setup was simple and the things worked well as far as internet connectivity. Wireless worked very well for my media players and phones. But, then the network performance issues started appearing.
USB Ports Not Really Sharable - No Wireless Connect MAC Address filter.

Summary: The box desribes one of this router's features as: "Two USB ports for sharing USB flash drives, hard drives, or printers." However, the only way you can get access to a device attached to the USB port is if you install a utility program on your Windows or Mac computer.
