Only worked for 3mo and out of Newegg RMA

Anonymous, Newegg
3 February 2015
  • Summary: Would give more stars if was reliable.
  • Pros: Worked great for 3mo. Then stopped assigning IP address over WiFi.
  • Cons: Stopped assigning IP address over WiFi after only 3mo. Just out of Newegg RMA 90 day period. Have to pay shipping on such a cheap router if RMA'd to TrendNet. Not sure why they would want this thing back given the price. Replacing with a Netgear WNR2020v2 for nearly the same price.

The router worked great for a couple of weeks

Les C., Amazon
1 January 2015
  • Summary: The router worked great for a couple of weeks. Then, for unknown reasons, I would lose the wifi signal maybe 4-5 times a day, and have to reset it to obtain the signal again. I called the Trendset technical line, and all they wanted to do was charge me an additional fee to refer me to their problem solver department.

Bricked within a day

6 February 2014
  • Summary: Got up and running within minutes. Router lost it's firmware and turned into a brick when attempting to change security settings. Manufacturer support is non-existent. A positive point is that the source code is available if you want to hack it.

Disappointed

BilboBaggins,, TigerDirect.com
19 January 2014
  • Summary: Product has minimal wireless range. Both my previous routers could easily reach my sons room. This router isn't even visible as a selection in his room. I also found the GUI extremely weak. I would not purchase this router again and certainly would not recommend it to others.

Range is vert poor

  • Summary: The range on this router is very poor. If you have a very small home or apartment it may be fine, but for anything larger I would pass on this product.

Bad Experience

,, TigerDirect.com
23 March 2013
  • Summary: I hate tobe a killjoy, but we had a bad experience with this unit. It failed almost right out of the box. It kept dropping the signal to my wireless units and later even failed on wired units. The signal was not strong enough when it worked to reach from the kitchen to the bedrooms. Sent it back and bought a Netgear. No problems there.

Pain in the

Brian F, Amazon
12 March 2013
  • Summary: I had a lot of trouble setting up the router and had to call for assistance a few times. The second time I called I was on hold for 30 minutes and just hung up. After setting up the router, it performed poorly. I returned the router and purchased a TP-Link router which is much better and was easy to setup.

Underwhelming router with little amount of features

Andy, Amazon
27 February 2013
  • Summary: The router has an disappointing amount of features, which would have been okay except for the fact that it does a terrible job managing and sharing WAN traffic between devices attached to the router. The router routinely gives all the bandwidth to the device that has the most consistent and highest amount of usage.

Trendnet bottom-of-the-line gives you about what you would expect: a disappointment

Ben T. Feese, Amazon
19 February 2013
  • Summary: I bought this router as a replacement for my old LinkSys, which did not have the 802.11 n protocol. But it would not even begin to reach out as far (~40 ft. through 2 wood/plaster walls) as my old one would.
