Summary: Was debating getting this unit or looking into a more expensive unit with better range. At the price point, within 50 feet, this unit is very fast. Although not dual band like some of the more expensive units (only runs on 2.4Ghz) the speed is great and a big improvement over most ISP provided wireless solutions.
Pros: Quick Setup, easy interface/GUI; fast speeds, price compared to other more expensive units.
Cons: Runs hot, no guest access, speed loss at range increases heavily (+50 feet - going outdoors, etc)
Cons: Looses configuration randomly. The last time gave itself a random static IP and created problems for my provider who in turn blocked me. It took a couple of days to figure out what was going on. Too late to return, it's going to auction and will be replaced by a non Trendnet router. Customer support said it's normal for a router to loose config after power glitches, so this is what may have happened. Nonsense, I had a WRT54G for several years and worked flawlessly unt...
Summary: I was torn between this, WNDR3700 and DIR-655 but gave this a shot because of the TEW-687GA that I have already had for my NAS. Also, I was curious to see if they really matched well as they use the same chips. My brief tests indicate the matched 450n max out at 135.5Mbps, 300n is over 100Mbps. One floor up, 300n hits 70-80Mbps, 450n hits 100Mbps+. Gigabit is over 350Mbps.
Pros: Good signal strength, Fast WiFi, Fast Gigabit, Runs cool, 4 SSID (also how you setup "guest" access)
Cons: Limited features, Time error with fw 188.8.131.52, Wireless MAC Filter cannot name names, Shiny finish (finger print magnet), Very slow firmware update
Summary: I've been having trouble with wireless reliability. I have had to power cycle the router about once a week to correct this problem.
Pros: ORIGINAL: I selected this router because I believed it would do QoS necessary for my Vonage RT31P2 router to work. I have the Vonage router behind it, flooded my pipe, and had no degradation in the voice quality. Easy installation.
Cons: ORIGINAL: I too ran into the "IP is not in LAN subnet range" issue. Not a huge con, but don't expect to use anything other than a class /24.
Summary: To the reviewer that says this router doesn't work with Comcast is a complete idiot. The Comcast modem only needs to be reset once so it can reassign the MAC Address from your old Router/Lan port to the new routers WAN.
Pros: Works perfectly now with the new firmware that just came out 184.108.40.206. Lots of options to configure which is a good thing in my book, multiple SSID's is a great feature. Have 1 wired and 5 wireless PC's hooked up to the router. Everything just works and is fast what more could I say
Cons: I'm not going to lie it has got a bit flaky once or twice since I had it nothing a power cycle didn't fix. Other then those 2 times it worked fine for a months on 24/7 without a reset.
Summary: I've always been a linksys fan but decided to try this routing solution and it worked out. It is definitely faster than my old router.
Pros: It was easy to set up out of the box. Manually configured it and had the firmware flashed and all of my components connected in 15 minutes. I have networked my home with cat 6 drops (for gaming systems) and between those and my wireless devices (printer, iphone, kindle, blu ray player, and 3 laptops) I have not had any issues with it.
Cons: It has to reboot after making any big changes which is annoying but meh it only takes a little longer than I am used to waiting. I thought the signal strength would have been a little stronger in my outer rooms but it does cover my 2000 sq ft home by being positioned in the office located in the middle of the house.
Pros: I selected this router because I believed it would do QoS necessary for my Vonage RT31P2 router to work. I have the Vonage router behind it, flooded my pipe, and had no degradation in the voice quality. Easy installation.
Cons: I too ran into the "IP is not in LAN subnet range" issue. Not a huge con, but don't expect to use anything other than a class /24.
Pros: Easy to setup - (don't use cd... always manually setup routers) I had mine setup with PPPOE, multiple port forwarding using PAT within minutes, saw awesome transfer speeds of 50-70mb on gigabit, and all my wifi connections were instant 150/300 on first connect (setup using wifi N only, and 20/40 hz, you also have to make sure your laptop isnt using power saving, that will decrease speeds, my laptop would only connect at 80 before I shut off power saving, then it jumpe...
