User Review

peter a., Newegg
18 May 2015
  • Summary: You get what you pay for - not recommended
  • Pros: Inexpensive (1egg), but see below
  • Cons: Bought two units, the first stopped suddenly after a few months, the second would not program and was returned to Newegg for credit. Trendnet apparently has no acceptable tech support. They provide prepared e-mail or telephone messages and never follow-up.

Don't waste your time

KIRK P., Newegg
9 April 2015
  • Summary: No. First and second unit - no WAN connectivity. While customer service was decent I'm wary of buying another Trendnet product. Of course, considering the price what should I expect?
  • Pros: Worked fine for about 4 months and was pretty fast for downloads while working. Trendnet tech support was pretty decent and went through the RMA process smoothly. I'm giving the device an extra egg for working for a few months and for pretty decent RMA service with Trendnet.
  • Cons: After 4 months one morning could not get a WAN connection. Multiple resets, etc, etc. did nothing. A direct connection to modem and another router worked fine. I contacted Trendnet tech support, went through the RMA process, got a replacement and -- same thing right out of the box - NO WAN! And y...

TrendNet Ethernet Router

Carolyn W., Newegg
23 February 2015
  • Summary: I wanted this router based upon many good reviews. I wanted a dedicated hard-wired unit for my VoIP phone, to keep the wireless activity of the computers from disturbing the phone unit. Newegg granted an RMA based on my inexperience, which I was grateful for.
  • Pros: It was easy to set up.
  • Cons: While I have plenty of technical knowledge with computers and wireless internet items, I have no experience with today's modern ethernet equipment. I was unable to understand the instructions for the Quick Setup, which was supposed to be easy. So, the instructions were unclear, and I was unable t...

Simple, Thrifty, Easy to Install Solution If You Don't Need Wireless

Sea Jay, Amazon
21 February 2015
  • Summary: Not being a computer wizard, and not needing wireless at this time, I wanted a thrifty solution to adding more devices. I have least expensive time warner service $15 per month and purchased my own modem (Motorolla Surfboard) for economy reasons.

Windows Firewall kills network connectivity

Deborah M., Newegg
11 December 2014
  • Summary: Didn't have high expectations with this low price. So if the thing doesn't have port forwarding, so be it. But having the thing stop working when Windows Firewall is enabled is too much.
  • Pros: Seems to work OK as long as the Windows Firewall is disabled.
  • Cons: I cannot get this router to work with Windows Firewall turned on. As soon as I turn Windows Firewall on, I can no longer connect to the outside world - or even to the router itself. My old router - or any other router I've ever used - did not display this behavior. Their tech support couldn't get...

first impressions

charlene s., Newegg
29 November 2014
  • Summary: Was a tad concerned on opening the box. The included cable (3' I think) had several smooshed spots where it had been coiled in the box--Whit seems to work fine without having to jiggle the cable. No eggs deducted.
  • Pros: Price (and free shipping) were spot on. Had been looking at another routher, but the "ask a question" on it led me to this. Doesn't take up much room (very small) and works as I need it to with 1 PC and a couple of game consoles. No lag, no speed slowdown noticed even when running all 3 items att...
  • Cons: None so far.

Great inexpensive router

NetDoc, B&H Photo
26 August 2014
  • Excerpt: This is the best low cost router I have ever found. I just got it to segment off a subnet in a room and it was super easy to set up. I cannot comment on longevity yet but so far it has been rock solid. I plan on getting several more to have on hand to set up additional ad-hoc networks when needed.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Small
