Works well when it's connect

Travis B., Newegg
3 July 2013
  • Summary: Trendnet support via email was responsive but their suggestions didn't help. I don't know what re-flashing the same firmware and resetting the router right after I've purchased it is supposed to accomplish. In this case, it accomplished exactly what you would expect: nothing.
  • Pros: Easy to set up and get working. I had it connected to my router with WPA2 password in about 10 minutes.

  • Cons: This wireless bridge is unable to handle moderate traffic. I initiate a large file transfer using an ftp client / server and wireless connection drops after 15 - 20 seconds, then wired connection on the bridge drops, then re-connection cycle starts. Tried wireless setting changes, including slower speeds; Tried moving wireless bridge closer to wireless router; Same results. Cisco & Buffalo wireless bridges in same location are stable and do not have this issue. This w...

  • Excerpt: Это мост из WiFi в EtherNet: он раздаёт трафик по 4-м портам EtherNet, подключаясь по WiFi к другой точке доступа.
  • Pros: не знаю
  • Cons: мост не в ту сторону :(
