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.
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.
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...
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
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.
