Excerpt: Simply follow the quick set up guide and you'll be up and running in minutes. The online interface offers some added security features - nice! This router does what it was designed to do at a good price!!
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.
I Love It ; ) Thanks Trendnet! This Is A Hard Wired Router. Sometimes, Old School Is Better School.

Summary: Bought another 2 of these guys based on info that hardwired routers are being phased out. I have a total of 4 of these routers now. 1 is active in use and 3 in reserve. There is a big push from big $$$ corps to get people on wireless routers and thus, the sheep follow. Then, you have wireless hacks who can spend a certain amount of money and buy equipment to penetrate wireless routers even with the most elaborate pass codes.
Excerpt: The router installed very easily ... up and running in just a few minutes. It has excellent throughput and it easily handles my recent ISP upgrade to 50MBit download speed, which was the main reason I replaced my previous router. I was, however, disappointed to see that its DHCP server did not include ability to reserve certain IP addresses for particular MAC addresses (that's why it lost the 5th star).
Excerpt: This router is a space saver. I'm using it as my gateway router to my cable modem. It's so small it can fit in the palm of your hands. Easy setup and configure if desired. The only thing I can think of that would have been nice is Gigabit ports, but at this price having 100Mbs ports is a steal.
Just as good as its much more expensive competitors.

Summary: I signed up for a 25Mbps cable service and my 10 year old Linksys router coudn't handle more than 8 Mbps so time for an upgrade. When I saw the Trendnet I was worried it might miss some essential features or would not be up to the task purely based on its price, but based on the positive reviews I decided to give it a try and I have not been disappointed. Easy to set up and has all the features (firewall, vpn, etc) my old linksys had and I enjoy a 28Mbps download speed.
Summary: I used this to hook two computers to the internet. I have Comcast. It comes into the from the front of my condo. I connect the output of the cable modem into a "thru the power lines broadband adaptor". And from an adaptor at the rear of my condo into this router. Plugged in both computers to the router. Powered down and up and both were coneected to the internet. Plug and Play.
Summary: I recently purchased Ooma internet phone service from Amazon and needed a router to split my Comcast cable service so I can connect the Ooma. Last week after receiving the TrendNet router, I connected the ethernet wire from the Comcast cable modem to the TrendNet router. After that, I plugged in my computer and Ooma to the router then turned on the power. Everything worked great and still does today.
Summary: This worked fine for about six months, but in the last month we have had much trouble with losing internet connection while on the computer. After several appointments and consultations with internet provider and local computer geeks, we have narrowed the problem down to this router, so I am back on line to find a new one. Apparently the router and modem are no longer "communicating" well with each other.
Summary: I wasted few hours but could not get it set up and eventually gave it up, i really don't want to waste hours to call the tech support as the previous reviewers said the terrible support, so i am going to just refund it.
