TEW-812DRU failing

James N., Newegg

  • Summary: Two calls to TrendNet, and other than telling me to reset the router, I was told to return it.
  • Pros: When it worked, I was impressed. My Netflix connection is at HD levels all the time, and loaded almost instantly.
  • Cons: What to say. If I knew why the internet connection just drops out arbitrarily, I would/could troubleshoot it. I do not find out until I go to a site, and get the page can't display. Check in my control panel and see the dreaded red X.

Not sure about this

  • Summary: Maybe I'm not typical but, despite this looking good and appearing very good value, I am not convinced about this product. It does work (and at times very well) but seems to be quite dodgy - especially with Windows 8.1. Compared with similar products from different companies, it is quite cheap and has lots of the bells and whistles. Or it might be that it just doesn't work in partnership with the Trendnet ac USB 3 dongle which I also bought.

  • Pros: * High transfers for wired connections.
  • Cons: Very slowed wireless connections for my iphones(models :4 and 4S). So every time I connect 2 or more wireless devices like two iphone my internet connections drops from ~30 Mbps to <3Mbps, I use speed test as a guidance. I have to reboot the router so all wireless devices can get the higher bandwidth. I already upgrade to firmware to the latest based on trendnet website. So if there is a setting that you guys know that I should change so both iphones get a high bandwi...

Performance is sub par

Raymond M., Newegg
28 February 2014
  • Pros: It was easy to set up, and get everything connected. The user interface is OK but not great. The wired connections have worked flawlessly
  • Cons: This unit gives me completely unreliable wireless. I will come home to notice that the wireless signal has dropped out due to devices I have that do not auto-reconnect. I am constantly having to re-set this router. The first month I would get speeds in the 11/12 Mbps download range.. now I'm lucky if I can get 2Mbps. the last speed test run I got 2.33 Mbps down and 835 Kbps upload. My ipad 2 also barely gets 3 bars of range when on the 2nd floor of the house (router i...

  • Summary: This is a v2.0R, 1.0R has been discontinued. Currently I would only give 3/5 for this latest router from TRENDnet, which is my favorite brand. I really like the web interface for admin, nice and clean. However, at its current 2.0.2 firmware I believe there are some errors in its wireless setting. For example, 802.11n set to "off" will force 802.11g. If you set it to "auto", then it seems to force 802.11n mode, which is opposite of what the user manual says.
  • Pros: Excellent admin web interface, No messy antenna, USB3.0 port for network printer or network storage
  • Cons: Need firmware update  to fix some bugs, Better if it has a base since it's light in weight. It could tip over easily, Difficult to determine the orientation/placement to achieve best coverage., Very little device supports ac right now

Second unit

Stuart P., Newegg
17 January 2014
  • Pros: High Speeds ( 30Mb/s up and down wireless n through Cable ) - good range - easy setup - very nice router
  • Cons: first unit was DOA but I guess everyone gets a bad unit every once in a while - I already put in a DOA review - so please delete one of those and replace with this.

Update - 6 months

Dean M., Newegg

  • Pros: I wrote an update about 6 months ago after having used this router for a few weeks. I had basically no problems to report then, and I am glad to say that this is still the case.
  • Cons: As far as daily use is concerned, there really aren't any. It just works!

  • Summary: Spent $100 on buying this router which was supposed to be latest and greatest offering from trendnet. But router had trouble from day one. connection, both wireless and wired timed out after every couple of hours. Took one week for trendnet support to go through troubleshooting steps and recommend RMA. Guess what, now i need to pay for shipping to send the router back to them so that they can fix or send me a different one.

WilliamGayde, Overclock
15 October 2013
  • Excerpt: Starting off with the box we see that It has 1300 Mbps in the AC band, and 450 Mbps in the N band for a total of 1750 Mbps. The router also comes pre-encrypted, and was very easy to setup.
