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...

Disappointed

Matt B., Newegg
27 January 2012
  • Summary: It seemed to work fine for a week or so and the started handing out conflicting IP addresses and would spontaneously just stop working. Conflicted with my DSL modem several times. Switched back to one of my DD-WRT powered linksys routers and my network works perfectly.
  • Pros: Looks cool, LCD screen, Dual Band
  • Cons: So unstable that it's unusable. User interface is poor.

Not Impressed

Kyle W., Newegg
14 January 2012
  • Summary: Maybe I can sell it.
  • Pros: It turns on and works. Was only $40 with free shipping from shell shocker.
  • Cons: Signal strength and range are horrible. Where I used to get 100% signal strength I now only get 70-80%. Printer sitting 5 feet away only gets 70%. Super bright blue power light lights up a whole room, the extra rubber feet take care of that.

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

Ray & Catherine, Amazon
22 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.

Waned to like this router

Amazon Customer "das", Amazon
17 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...

Wireless is nice but plugged in speeds are seemingly slow

David S., Newegg
14 January 2011
  • 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 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. My ISP is direct fiber and I get a rock steady 20 MBPS upload which comes out to (through mult...

Should've gone with N*tgear in first place

Charles G., Newegg
12 December 2010
  • Summary: Purchased the N*tgear equivalent on sale to replace it - and it just worked right from the start. I'm going to let Trendnet replace this one and - if it works - either give it to a friend or keep it as a backup.
  • Pros: Above average Wireless-N speeds
  • Cons: Screen never worked. It made a very annoying quiet beep every couple seconds. Pursuing RMA. Excessively slow to accept setting changes. Seriously - 40 seconds for EVERY change.

High hopes down the tubes.

Tim O., Newegg
25 May 2010
  • Summary: I went against one of my own tenants that I dig deep into the review ratings. It has never failed and that is how I got my WRT54G (for example). On paper this sounded like the cat's meow, but if it downgrades from my G router... well I'm glad Newegg is good about RMA handling.
  • Pros: Wireless a/b/g/n Simultaneous channels. USB printer and NAS support Easy to setup for the most part. LCD monitor.
  • Cons: Poor coverage. LCD monitor... reality is... give me the old fashioned LED's. In fact the manual refers to LED's in the setup section that don't actually exist. Plus the UI on the LCD is brain-dead. I bought this as an upgrade to my WRT54G but it is a serious downgrade. I gave it the college try ....
