WiFi router

Ian J., Newegg
26 March 2014
  • Summary: I've owned this for over 2 years now. I probably reset every month or 2, but it's still working just fine. I like that I can hook up my older non-wireless printer to this and can access it from multiple computers. I have even hooked up External HDD's to this and played them over the wifi.
  • Pros: Very little maintenance Easy Setup Fast Connections 2.4 and 5 GHz channels
  • Cons: Takes a while to reboot.

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

A great router!

Lisa S., Newegg
5 October 2012
  • Summary: This review has gone thru one of these routers. Thank goodness we're not using one of those old Fast Ethernet/Wireless G routers as our main ones anymore, we don't need to wait nearly as long for file transfers now! Gigabit and wireless N are awesome!
  • Pros: Reliable connection. Black and shiny. Why, by Jove, it's got a screen! USB ports! Gigabit Ethernet! Dual-band wireless N for a total of 600Mbps! WPS! Good range! It's a great router! Got it quite a few bucks off! Even the WAN port is Gigabit! This thing is actually quite future-proof, even if it'...
  • Cons: Grammar errors in some places in the setup. Screen is slow and takes a few seconds to update the current transfer speeds. Became obsolete quick. It's not like that suddenly made your internet slow, though! There is a dead zone, but it's probably the mirrors, walls and stuff. Nothing an access poi...

User Review

Christian B., Newegg
24 July 2012
  • Pros: Has everything you expect a wireless router to have and haven't had to reboot it since purchase almost 9 months ago. Also the screen on the top is actually very nice to check the current connection speed just for peace of mind.
  • Cons: No way to turn off the top screen but not nearly enough to take off an egg.

Worst rage ever!

Anonymous, Newegg
5 March 2012
  • Pros: Dual Band
  • Cons: Super bad range. Its dual band but, unless you're standing beside it you can't find (N). I call tech support and all they said was to updated the firmware. I did still no good. If newegg would take it back I would send it.

Nice DD-WRT Router

Timothy J., Newegg
28 February 2012
  • Summary: I got this router because I wanted to lose the network cable that was running from my office PC to my TV in the living room. I stream a lot of video from this PC; my old router did fine with SD video files, but larger HD files would cause it to stutter.
  • Pros: Great set of features on this router. Can't really ask for much more considering the price; picked this up several weeks back on a deal for $40. Though I don't really use the 5ghz antenna, it's nice to know it's there. Gigabit ports are also a bonus. Router has been rock solid since I set it up w...
  • Cons: Didn't even try to use this router with stock firmware; I upgraded to DD-WRT before even connecting it. The router has been solid without a single reboot since initial setup, but I do occasionally experience a dropped connection when running torrents. I'm pretty sure this is a problem either with...

Annoying configuration

Anonymous, Newegg
26 February 2012
  • Pros: Simultaneous dual band It works
  • Cons: This router sucks to configure. Every time you make a single change it forces you to restart the router. These restarts last from 40 sec to almost 2 min. For example: I have 4 security cameras so I need to forward 4 ports to access them I also wanted to set up my ftp server which requires me to f...

Fast Wireless Transfers!!!

Justin P., Newegg
24 February 2012
  • Summary: This will the second router that I have ever owned! My old router was a Microsoft base station. I wish Microsoft made new routers, but they don't. The Microsoft router still worked just fine, but I decided that after seeing this Trendnet router on Shellshocker, I should go ahead and retire the old...
  • Pros: This has been a great router for me so far! I've had no issues with this router, and I love that were some of the settings are similar to my 12 year old router. I believe that this might be my replacement router brand for a long time. WPS feature is nice, with the button on the right side of the ...
  • Cons: NONE!

Bad factory firmware

Terry M., Newegg
14 February 2012
  • Summary: I was going to rma this router but decided to keep it after changing the firmware to DD-WRT.
  • Pros: You can flash with 3rd party firmware. I flashed with DD-WRT and it fixed the issues I was having.
  • Cons: Need to flash a third party firmware to be useable. The lcd no longer works with third party firmware but thats not a big issue. I have 2 other friends with this same router and they also had to flash to DD-WRT to get them to work correctly.
