good value needs patience

  • Excerpt: With the purchase of a 5G adapter the range and speed on my mac improved greatly. As a regular addition to my current network the n/g showed a negligible improvement. Stepping up to high speed router with antennae would have been the better choice.
  • Pros: 5 G Speed Is Appreciable, Fast, Secure
  • Cons: Hard to Set up, No Antennae For Range

29 December 2014
  • Excerpt: I bought this to replace a failing router. Set-up was simple and only took minutes. At the moment I only have 802.11n so I can't comment on 802.11ac but the wifi is plenty fast. I getting 65Mbps with Charter. My only complaint is that it is designed to stand on end and does not include a cradle.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast, Highly Compatible

DO NOT BUY, CHOOSE ANOTHER COMPANY!

  • Summary: I have owned this router for about a year now and I am kicking myself for not going with a more established brand. Let me tell my story. I bought this router for its AC mode so I could get a strong connection upstairs while the modem was located downstairs in the living room.

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

  • 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.

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

PJ "Peter", Amazon
23 August 2014
  • 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.

Drops wifi signal all the time

  • 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.
  • Pros: Fast
  • Cons: Unreliable

Great when it works.

Bruce E "BruceE", Amazon
15 August 2014
  • Summary: I really like this router, when it works. Great features (e.g. multiple WiFi networks each on their own VLAN), but the unit I received would "lockup" either after making several configuration adjustments or after several hours of use.
