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?
Summary: Tried to replace a BT HomeHub 2 with this and now get worse coverage than before. The unit I received is a discontinued model/version. While I did get tech support from Trendnet the set up was not the easiest and performance (compared to BTHH2) leaves to be desired.
Summary: We're a fairly "connected" household, with between 5 - 10 devices (big and small) connected at all times. The TRENDnet Wireless AC 1750 works well when it's working, BUT... very often drops a device or two, and occasionally drops all of them. A re-boot fixes the problem nicely. I purchased this router because the reviews seem very favorable overall. But I would advise buyers of the AC 1750 to set up their new network quickly.
Summary: I appreciate the ability to connect instantly with TrendNet technical. Very refreshing.
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: I started with the V1, and performance was generally quite good. Bought ultimately for the touted streaming capability, which is where it fell down. Blamed it on USB 2.0 - only did 4, 6MB/s at best. The Egg graciously exchanged for the V2 since out of V1. V2 had poorer wireless, and the USB 3.0 was almost identical speed to the 2.0. Aarg!!
Summary: I bought this router about 4 weeks ago to replace my netgear rangemax that had a faulty 2.4ghz channel. The installation is easy and the speeds were great but after five days, my router's wireless completely cut out, both the 2.4ghz and 5g bands. I checked to see if it was my router or my modem so I plugged my laptop directly into my modem and it was fine and I also swapped out my busted netgear rangemax, which still had a functioning 5g channel and it was fine.
Randomly and constantly drops connections during use

Summary: Randomly drops connections. Even after a firmware update. Really thought highly of this item after paying 99$ for it and hooking it up to see the smoking speed and extra range it offered over my old netgear N router. However it drops connections constantly and randomly and I am unable to figure out why even after updating the firmware. The company site itself has a link to the updated firmware and i tried with 3 different browsers to download it.
Excerpt: When I first set up this router, the speed was what blew me away. Recently, however, I have been having more and more disconnect issues. The router does not seem to want to stay connected and has been dropping in internet connections on my PC, TV, Blu-ray, etc. I have updated the firmware as they become available, however, to no avail. If the router is connected, I get excellent throughput, but therein lies the problem. Too many disconnects.
