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...

  • 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.

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!

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

Amazon Customer, Amazon
23 January 2012
  • 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.

Followup from earlier...

Paul P., Newegg

  • Summary: DD-WRT a must on this router see thread on DD WRT website. Very fast router with a D Link 825 clone chipset.
  • Pros: Solid router, good speeds.What I really got sick of was the LCD, why they did this I do not know. Hello Trendnet, most normal people will use the GUI-OK? What I did was take it apart and pull the connector ribbon on the LCD screen. Problem solved.
  • Cons: None

  • Summary: I never even bothered using the router with the stock firmware because the dd-wrt firmware is an absolute must for me. I will not purchase a router unless it has full dd-wrt support, which this one does.
  • Pros: DD-WRT Compatible 680mhz cpu 2x External Antennas 4x Gigabit LAN
  • Cons: There are no status lights on the front, only the overly bright blue LED. Not that it really matters, unless you're trying to trouble shoot a network issue. Not worth losing an egg.

Works great with DD-WRT

Anonymous, Newegg
18 January 2012
  • Pros: Easy to load DD-WRT which runs great on this router. So far no reboots after a week. Signal strength is strong from center of 2300sqft house to all corners of same. Haven't had a chance to test the 5ghz but the 2.4 is working like a champ. Various computers, X-Box, PS3, DS3, 2 blu-rays all runnin...
  • Cons: None so far.

$100 Router for $40

Craig S., Newegg
17 January 2012
  • Summary: Third party firmware like dd-wrt and Tomato USB (for the Asus gear) is worth the install time. Take it from me.
  • Pros: Mine was the $40 shell-shocker deal. It's upgradable with dd-wrt firmware. Go to the dd-wrt Web site and search the forums for info on the TEW-673GRU router. There is a link and good instructions on how to load in D-Link 825 firmware. It really does work (!) and has significantly improved the thr...
  • Cons: The USB port is limited. With the dd-wrt firmware, I can ftp into a flash drive on the USB port. It is not a DLNA server like some of the other routers. If this is important to you you may want to move up to a more expensive router.
