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.

  • 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: The major problem - I have 2 VOIP providers: Fongo and Nettalk and no one works with this router (Netgear router works with both). I had no choice but to return it to the store. Unfortunately I lost delivery fees twice - delivering to me and return.
