The TEW - 692GR Discontinued Wireless Dual Band Router is great if you can get one that works. 2 out of 3 failed out of the BOX

Summary: Bought three so far 2 were bricks out of the BOX. Hassle getting permission to send back and slow turn around getting the next one that did not power up! Not the power supply either. Bricks no lights and lengthy time to get resolution. They would do better monitoring their RMA requests more often than once per week or so. After the next one I will go to another model. By the way if you can get one of these that actually work out of the box they are really nice.
Summary: Only the 5.0 band would work, older devices would not connect to it. Amazon was great in their return policy however though offering a refund if I mailed back the unit. I forgot to do this so I still have the unit but very happy with Amazons support. I think this was just a defective unit/bad luck as overall I have heard good things about TRENDnets products.
Summary: I was excited to receive this new router which I wanted to replace my aging Netgear router. I unplugged the Netgear and moved all the connections to the Trendnet. I then proceeded to connect wirelessly. Previously, my Netgear connection was deemed excellent - the Trendnet connection was deemed poor - 2 bars as opposed to my previous 5.
Summary: Short verdict: Would give it negative star if there is one. Save yourself some money and look elsewhere! Long Story: Have been using a slow but trusty LinkSys WRT54G for years!!! And its rock solid. Finally decided to upgraded to a 60Mbps internet service, saw this on sales on Amazon and ordered it......... When it works, it works beautifully, though only randomly and briefly. The router's WAN connection is very weak, it would take a long long time to connect if at all.
Summary: I purchased the original unit and shortly after initial setup the WIFI stopped working. I updated the firmware, but it did not make a difference. Returned it thinking it was a fluke and requested another. Got the second one and set it up only to have the exact same issues. All other devices on my network are working fine, but these items appear to be defective. Guess I will use a brand I know I can trust...
Summary: Setup was easy but product does not function as advertised! 2.4 GHZ Wireless network appeared to be on and functioning but could not see it on any device as if it was not transmitting. I checked reviews as I should have did in the first place before buying and was shocked to see that so many people had dealt with the same issue. Waste of time and money! Also I found out this product is Manufacturer Discontinued and replaced by another version.
