Top performance router for the price, but something you should know

QQQQ, Amazon
3 weeks ago
  • Summary: Setup was a breeze, plenty of options to customize everything I need to and more. Beam forming is mentioned, but I couldn't find any details in the manual..? The router locked up after about 3 weeks in action. I tried every reset, reboot and trick I know but it wouldn't pass data. To get a WAN address back up, support had me unplug the DSL router and this one, bring up the DSL router first, then the TrendNet and it was back in business and obtained a WAN ID again.

Rather than a cool design, Trendnet packed the good stuff inside.

PJ "Peter", Amazon

  • Summary: Very Impressed. The router I replaced was a well known mid priced router. I was unable to use either 2.4 or 5gig channels. The router sits behind dual monitors and all the cabling. I was unable to use either wireless channel. I had to connect a second router and used it as a wireless access point. That was connected by a 15 foot cable and I was able to get at least 2.4 throughout my house.

Drops wifi signal all the time

Wade Kwon, B&H Photo
18 August 2014
  • Excerpt: I've tried the TrendNet router with two different new cable modems on Bright House. Even with all new wiring, the wifi signal has gone out again and again. Since it was still under warranty, I sent it back to TrendNet, which chose to replace it with a new one. But the new one had the same problem out of the box. I've worked with a TrendNet technician for 2 months, but to date, the problem continues.
  • Pros: Fast
  • Cons: Unreliable

Works great, but requried and got friendly tech support

ROBERT E MURRAY, Amazon
14 August 2014
  • Summary: With more than one call to tech support, which was very knowledgeable and friendly, the system now works great. My configuration is a MAC downstairs and a PC upstairs. installation required on-line support to use the online installation procedure, which could use some clarifications. Also, at tech support's suggestion, I had to raise the router 4 feet off the desk downstairs to get better reception upstairs.

Good wireless router

Amazon Customer, Amazon
9 August 2014
  • Summary: Seems great so far. My brother recommended Trendnet stating that they have excellent customer service. My old router died, and I decided on this one to handle all of the wireless gadgets in the house now. I have been using this router for about a week now. The quick directions were not completely clear and I used the manual instead since it did not skip steps. I am a little new to setting up routers and I am not the most computer savvy person.

TRENDnet AC1750 Dual Band Wireless Router ...

Lil Baby Sis, Amazon
9 August 2014
  • Summary: OH! This product makes me so happy! My old router was giving me a fit, having to reset it 2-3x a day, bumping me off in the middle of working or browsing and I was ready to pull my hair out! Got this one quick - actually came earlier than expected and packaged from Manufacturer really well to protect it as well as external packaging for transit. All the codes, ids & wi-fi key right here on a sticker on the unit so I didn't have to "create" anything! YEAH!

Disappointing performance that did not live up to the reviews.

Athelas, Amazon
6 August 2014
  • Summary: I'm sorry to say that I was a bit disappointed. Various reviews (some of them professional reviewers) rated this router as fast and with a large range for its price. However, I found that it performs no better than - and often worse than - a five year old router I bought on the cheap at a box store.

  • Summary: won't work-have tried several times to get it working and have failed every time-I bought this because it was the highest rated, would have been fine if it worked-now, after all my struggling to get it working the time to send it back has expired-guess I'm stuck with a $120.00 book end-buyer, beware-was going to replace my Linksys 1500 with this, good thing I kept it

Disappointing range.

Andrew, Amazon
28 July 2014
  • Summary: I'm really disappointed with the range. I read the PC Mag review and was REALLY excited for setting this router up at my new house. Excellent speed and range for a low price? Sign me up. But upon getting it set up (with the Edimax adapter), I'm only getting a 3 or 4 bar signal strength on both 5ghz and 2.4ghz. I'm about 30 feet from my router through a couple walls, but really?

Very Satisfied

Cardoor "K", Amazon
25 July 2014
  • Summary: I know just enough about computer systems to get myself in trouble, but I did not get into trouble here. I bought this because it was a recommended best buy from some review (don't remember which one). I set it up according to the instructions, and it worked and has kept on working from the start. I like the fact that it's got a separate network connection for visitors.
