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.
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.
Summary: I don't want to pay shipping to return this so I decided to re-connect my trendnet 639 wireless router which worked flawlessly and use this one as a print server and extra Gigabyte switch. As long as the other router connects to the WAN and serves as a DHCP, no more drop outs.
Pros: Print server works really well.
Cons: Drops WAN connectivity often. Upgrading firmware did not help. Opened problem ticket with Trendnet and got stock answers. I using a wired connection and they kept telling me to check various wireless settings. Documentation on set up is rudimentary and not helpful for anything advanced. Router wi...
Summary: Don't be fooled by the low price. You're getting what you're paying for. If you need a stable router with good speeds, check out a different brand.
Pros: It powered on and has two antennas.
Cons: Everything else. The router is extremely unstable and has disconnects even after upgrading the firmware. I called Tech Support and they went through some basic troubleshooting with me (nothing that I hadn't tried before) before they reached the conclusion that my router was dysfunctional. From th...
Summary: Trendnet's return policy is garbage. You can't really go long periods of time waiting on an RMA. They don't have an option to have a replacement shipped to you, where you then return your defective product in the original packaging.
Pros: The router was really on sale and seemed like a reasonable risk.
Cons: This router constantly resets, needs to have multicasting disabled to forward any ports (and multicasting is enabled by default), and the tech support is godawful. They give stock answers and never respond to your question if you ask anything technical. The antenna are weak and the firmware doesn...
Summary: I bought this to replace my old WRT54G router (it is over 7 years old now). Copying files locally on the LAN from PC to PC takes almost twice as long as with my old router. To restate: Local files copies take TWICE AS LONG as they did on a 7 year old B/G only router. Really?
Pros: Easy to setup via the Trendnet web based admin GUI
Cons: SLOW LAN performance, LCD screen is worthless
Pros: Low price, fast router connection both wire and wireless, easy to config
Cons: The router will not work with SSL VPN (it drops the connection on key renewal). Opened a service ticket with TRENDNet and they were not able to help. The TEW-673GRU router technical specification did say that it support VPN but it does not!! Will return!!
Cons: Save yourself the headache. Seems that when the router is inactive, it automatically disables wifi access. I use this at an office, which means that each morning we need to reboot the router. I've never had this with any other router.
Summary: Manufacturer should disclose that users must install software in order to use shared drive. Every router should perform it's basic function - passing through packets through wired connection. If it does not do that, manufacturer should not sell it even if it's loaded with other features.
Pros: Gigabit ports, price, Wifi.
Cons: 1) It regularly drops connection. 2) It has inconvenient administration interface. 3) It requires to install software to access USB device. One of reviewers wrote that it's good for "regular internet usage", but not for VPN or gaming. I disagree. It's not good for anything. I had old DLink router...
