Works Great

Tom B., Newegg
13 April 2012
  • Pros: Works great out of the box with a simple reconfigure. Works just fine in a total Linux environment (static IP LAN addresses).
  • Cons: Quick Installation Guide sucks as per usual. Throw it away along with the CD. Download and print the latest full User's Manual from Trendnet.

Works Great

James M., Newegg
21 January 2010
  • Pros: Easy setup and no fiddling with having to power cycle or do anything to get it to recognize your computer or the network. Plug and go. I tried it as an access point, bridge, and repeater. Simple mouse click. It reboots and it does exactly what you expected.
  • Cons: none. I wish I bought this instead of my crapppy dlink 615 that I need to power cycle every couple days. I'm going to throw it through Fryys return window tomorrow. :)

works fine so far

Phil R., Newegg
29 December 2009
  • Pros: Does the job for a great price! Firmware update was nice and easy. Seems to work pretty fast. The cons are more of an annoyance than anything else. If it were more expensive, i'd give it a lower rating.
  • Cons: Set up can be a little confusing. The quick installation guide is useless if your router already has a different IP number. Instructions just need to be clearer especially if you don't understand what you're doing. You should also know how your wireless router is configured. Would be nice if they added a short ethernet cable.

Nice Little AP

Paul P., Newegg
9 February 2009
  • Pros: I have bought 2 of these so far. Both work great. One is being used to allow a laptop to connect wirelessly to our wired network, and the other is being used as an AP client at home for a cheap wireless solution for my 360 (I wasn't going to pay $100 to MSoft for the official one). Very inexpensive and so far reliable. No regrets buying this!
  • Cons: Takes a minute to setup. Was tricky the first time i Tried it. (Forgot to change to static ip as indicated in manual).

Perfect for BD Live

Robert Q., Newegg
12 January 2009
  • Pros: Inexpensive wireless access point/bridge which works perfectly for BD Live on profile 2.0 BluRay players. I had a little trouble with ip address setup and wireless security but the key was choosing the AP function on the trendnet setup page.
  • Cons: challenging setup

Capable, versatile and low cost WAP

Michael P., Newegg
4 March 2008
  • Pros: I've seen other reviews complain about the manual, but I was pleased that you could connect to this product and configure it from a web browser instantly, no manual needed. I've had Linksys gear that required the use of a CD to setup the WAP and I really didn't care for that. The menus were no more difficult to navigate than any other consumer grade wireless networking gear. After buying five of these, so far all have been working fine, some for months.
  • Cons: These devices are cheap, consumer grade wireless gear. Don't expect longevity. Don't expect every unit to work equally well. In other words, YMMV. Read other reviews here and see what others have experienced. For the wireless link project I mentioned under "Pros", DHCP did not work over the link.

Works Great So Far!!!

Frank R., Newegg

  • Pros: Simple to set up. Small and sleek looking. Simple web browser interface.
  • Cons: Directions for bridging are a bit convoluted. Web interface is a little skimpy--that's the price of simplicity for you!

  • Pros: Easy AP to set up as long as you know what you're doing. The manual is absolutely useless. It looked pretty thick but it turns out it has the same pointless directions in about 14 different languages. But setup is fairly self explanatory once you look at the web interface. I had no problems getting it talking to my Linksys WRT54G after a couple of minutes. I don't know how it'll hold up in the long run but it's a cheap way to get my Tivo series 2 into my wireless netw...
  • Cons: The manual is useless, you're better off winging it. Not a complicated device but some networking knowledge is helpful in figuring out the web interface. Mine had NO password set up by default although you can assign one.
