Great Product

Bill Cole, Amazon
31 January 2013
  • 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

takes longer than 15 mins.

  • 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). Also, instructions are poor for the product display on top of unit (router still does not display the speed of traffic--still at "0"--and I can't seem to find a resolution).

Good Solid Router: A few Caveats

router, Amazon
13 January 2012
  • 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. With the Netgear, the speeds on 5.2 would often drop into the 20 to 30 Mbps range, even though my laptop was only about 15 feet from the router. Pros: Consistent strong 5.2 signal.

Nice one

Dave, Amazon
8 December 2011
  • 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. Cons: Its cool glossy design attacts fingerprints.

Good but not awesome

DaveU, Amazon
27 January 2011
  • 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. Most people setting up a Wifi access point will accept the defaults - 2.4 GHz channel 6 at full power.

USB Ports Not Really Sharable - No Wireless Connect MAC Address filter.

Ray & Catherine, Amazon
27 January 2011
  • 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. And even then, only one person at a time may access the "shared" device.

Waned to like this router

Amazon Customer "das", Amazon
27 January 2011
  • Summary: Pros: Wireless Dual Band has worked fine and I like the screen even though I seldom use it. Config was simple and easy to set up. Cons: I wanted to love this router - I really do love my Trendnet 633GR - been nothing but rock stable for 5 years with great speed but my speeds on a directly plugged in computer to the 673 are much less than my 633.

Solid Choice for a dual band router

A. Kang, Amazon
27 January 2011
  • Summary: So I decided to upgrade my wireless router to a dual band, I moved into a new condo and everybody had a wireless router and I knew it would be trouble. I checked and nobody was using the 5GHz spectrum so I knew it was the way to go. I initially purchased the Netgear WNDR3700. Objectively, The Netgear is a nice router too but I had to exchange 2 units of the Netgear because of an issue with the wired gigabit ports going to sleep and not waking up.

TRENDnet TEW-673GRU GREENnet 300 Mbps Concurrent Dual Band Wireless N Gigabit Router

Amazon Customer, Amazon
27 January 2011
  • 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. 2. The ability to shape traffic.
