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).
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.
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.
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.
Summary: I get suddenlink 10 MB down/sec:1 MB up/sec cable internet service Speed: With this router I get about 10.1-10.4 MB/sec downspeed and 1.03 upspeed via [...] via BOTH wan and wireless! With the cisco e3000 I would get about 8.5-9.7 MB/sec downspeed and similar upspeeds. Set-Up: The Cisco set-up is pretty idiot proof, but the interface for advanced settings is lacking.
Summary: I had this router for a several weeks now and have only a few complaints. The display does get messed up, but this had no effect on its actual performance. I finally got annoyed enough to upgrade the firmware. My biggest complaint is the USB connectors in the back. I hooked up a couple hard drives to it and noticed everyone had full rights to them, also I would lose connectivity to them about 30 minutes in.
Summary: Not a bad router. LCD screen is good. I entered in a very long-winded review earlier, but it never got posted. So, to summarize: My wife can connect easily from across the house and downstairs from the router (2700 sq ft) The router turned on and just worked. The LCD screen is good, but not very intuitive. Also, and this is important. This device operates on DUAL bands, which means it operates in the 2.4 Ghz range and the 5. Ghz range.
Excerpt: Хороший аппарат, за ХОРОШИЕ деньги. Повесил на USB МФУ EPSON CX 3500, принтер Samsung ML-2245, собираюсь еще жесткий диск добавить. LAN - стационарный комп. По беспроводной - ноутбук, телефон. Все работает отлично. Настроил за 15 минут, из них 10 ушло на затуп (с компами на вы). Короче мне нравится.
Pros: 1. Внешний вид. 2. Легко настраивается (с учетом того, что я с компами на вы). 3. В момент закачки торентов, скорость инета не падает. 4. 2 USB. 5. Информативный дисплей. 6. Радиус действия (в трешке, через 2 бетонные стены по 35 см - легко). 7. Принт-сервер.
Cons: 1. Глянцеый корпус, быстро садится пыль (лечится уборкой). 2. Не очень удобное управление меню на самом девайсе, но привыкаешь. 3. Великовата цена . 4. Маловато, пока, инфы в инете по настрйкам.
