Summary: Its a gigabyte router. It performs well. I think it has a poor user interface. I also do not like the inability to repeater a wifi signal to stretch our current wifi signal. Most routers today have that option. It was a good deal for the price for black friday 2013.
Summary: The 5ghz band is a little under powered, I only get about 40% signal where my old dead AP would let me get 60-70%...However, even with a low signal, 5ghz N is still fairly fast. The 2.4ghz is another story. Weak would be ok if that's all it was.
Summary: Apparently it still would not boost the signal we were hoping for, so my son just placed it in the living room for me to use it when the other signal is weak. I can't say it's a bad router, it just didn't do what my family had hoped it would.
Summary: WAN is unstable; UI is confusing--it shows wireless as always OFF. Installed latest firmware. To return it or not: that is the question.
Pros: Internal wireless works nicely; stable.
Cons: I should have read the reviews-sigh! It worked well for two weeks. Now, WAN dies without affecting the internal network. Rebooting via UI doesn't help at all; have to remove power from the unit to affect a reboot and then the WAN stays connected for a few hours more. What a hastle! I have had to ...
Pros: I use this router to stream media from my NAS. The throughput of the router is excellent. The router runs very cool.
Cons: When I reboot the router, I can not connect to the internet without rebooting my Scientific Atlanta cable modem. DynDNS is the only Dynamic DNS provider supported. Why have a pull down menu if only one Dynamic DNS service is supported.
Summary: I applaud Trendnet for MSC setting. I wish all routers had this. But their choice in parts, features and stability are lacking.
Pros: MCS control and 3 stream... That's it.
Cons: I love that this thing has MCS settings. But When you have to turn your steams down to 1 or 2 to get error free wireless. Then it becomes an issue. Even when you got the errors down and your link speeds have suffered. The link speeds can still drop into unusable levels. Then to top it off... The ...
Summary: After a firmware upgrade I am now getting two bars (Woo hoo!). I was going to return it but I figured that after shipping and the 10 or 15% restocking fee why bother. I also thought about buying the TrendNet TEW-684UB adapter, but I shouldn't have to buy adapters so this thing can to do what it...
Pros: Small foot print, Blazing fast when is setup in Line of Sight (LOS) . Extremely easy to setup. Fast shipping as usual. The setup was a piece of cake.
Cons: Where do I begin? Upon receiving it, I noticed that compare to the Asus RT-N16 this thing is tiny. There is nothing wrong with my old router, but I like to keep up with technology as much as possible. After installing most of my computers and devices to the network I was impressed with the speed ...
Summary: I am returning the unit for a linksys device.
Pros: The unit works well and the external antenas do help with signal with 5Ghz. bandwidth is good, and you do connect at 450 Mbps.
Cons: The firmware does not support N only mode for 5Ghz frequency, which is kind of strange considering the option is available for 2.4 which is a more congested spectrum. Also if you are trying to set up Qos because you have Voice over IP devices then you are going to have a difficult time trying to ...
