Game time!

Cecil A. Green "Product Tester", Amazon
24 January 2015
  • Summary: If you have a kit in the house that games now this is the product of a life time, it will not let you down the regular router will not perform like this talking router. So step up and get gamming.

User Review

Swetal P., Newegg
21 January 2015
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: Thousands. If you want peace of mind never ever buy any TrendNet product, it sucks. Customer service is horrible. They have outsourced customer service in India and they won't provide any support unless you buy it. They won't tell you if the product is discontinued and then you'll have to pay for...

Worked well for a a few days

IMELDA R., Newegg
12 January 2015
  • Summary: Got what I paid for, which in this instance was a working signal for a few days but certainly a waste of money and time. Trendnet support was the worst too. Purchased a much better secure and quad band router elsewhere.
  • Pros: Price Good for a few days
  • Cons: Trendnet support wanted to charge $65 to answer trouble shooting questions related to establishing a secure wifi. They said it was a discontinued item they no longer supported and would only provide assistance when they were paid. This seemed like a bait and switch. Connection (unsecured) worked ...

Do not buy

Samuel B., Newegg
14 November 2014
  • Summary: Do not buy, swapped for a refurbished asus model, been great so far
  • Pros: Decently fast hardline speeds
  • Cons: Constant loss of WAN signal. If you needed to reset it, you had to pull the cable modem, then replug in the router. Dropped connection, disappointing WiFi range. Not worth the packaging it came in. Will not be buying a TRENDnet product again.

Nothing redeeming about this router

John M., Newegg
12 November 2014
  • Pros: Had a good wired gigabit connection for the price but now I have to reset it often.
  • Cons: Wireless is pretty much useless. This has a worse signal than a $10 off brand I have. I hoped this would be an upgrade but I'm going back to the old router. Wireless has to be reset often even when I can get connected. I've had many routers before and this one ranks dead last.

Great When It Works

David H., Newegg
6 November 2014
  • Pros: Fast
  • Cons: Was fine for a day then it stopped communicating with my DSL modem. I try powering everything down and then backup but after a couple of hours the problem always comes back. I can ping other comupters on the network but can't access the DSL modem.

worth the money

Harold B., Newegg
6 November 2014
  • Pros: worth the $19.99 with the rebate....a good and should be reliable spare
  • Cons: not worth much more because of the limited firmware changes that can be made and it doesn't give me the range in my situation that I got from Netgear 3500L with tomato firmware.

Am I expecting too much?

DUY L., Newegg
18 October 2014
  • Summary: I know this is a consumer grade device, and the performance is beyond what most consumers would need, so it's good for the money.
  • Pros: t's almost impossible to find wired only gigabit router at an affordable price, so I bought this instead. Almost gigabit performance - I get about 750 Mbps on the switch ports.
  • Cons: I have been unable to get anything beyond 230 Mbps when routing through the WAN port. The WAN port is connected to a ZeroShell router that I know can achieve 780 Mbps.
