Summary: I had a lot of problems with this at first. However after a lot of research, I managed to get it straightened out. I have a tew732 down at the post office right now. This one will be carefully stored for a backup.
Pros: Openwrt capable. I have "Barrier Breaker " running on mine now. I originally had the "Attitude Adjustment " downloaded from the TrendNet website.
Cons: Rf interference can render it useless. I originally gave up on this. My modem router's radio began to fail so I dug this out, did a openwrt reset through telnet, and got it running again. Didn't preform very well speed wise. But did work. Ordered a TEW732 300mbs one. So since that one is sitting ...
Summary: I've had this for about a week. It works great and I was able to set it up from my smartphone (once I figured out how). The name of the connection and Wifi key come on the package. Plug it in as directed (for me, straight into the wall; I don't have a laptop).
Summary: This router installed very easily and has been performing without a hitch. Only thing I would improve upon is that it doesn't like special characters in the passwords. I would recommend this to a friend.
Summary: but we've all come across $100+ routers that sucked and $30 routers that had the speed test bouncing off the max limit. Well this is one of those kinda sorta really great routers for a gourmet burger meal. Yeah I got mine for a Red Robin gourmet burger price. It works quite well.
Summary: Bought this on sale to replace customers broken routers. Usually as a loaner, but the last guys said it worked better than what they had, so they bought it from me. Now I have to get another on sale......
Pros: Right price, good interface, good options. Good enough signal. especially for the price.
Summary: Be prepared to call support and talk to some one in india whom you cannot understand and have him give you directions to set up router!! I am not a novice and there is no way of setting this up without help. I will never buy another trendnet product. Hire americans!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
