Good value, instructions and software interface lacking a bit
3 September 2014
Summary: If you need this device to work as a wireless access point, then it will serve you quite well. The headaches begin when you try to go beyond this default setup, as the instructions lack in clarity.
Summary: I tried using it with a WPA-PSK (AES/TKIP) network as a wireless repeater, and it didn't quite work. I'm not sure what went wrong. At first it would work fairly well, and I would see a jump in my wireless strength, with a slight latency, but after a short period of use (~30 minutes) the entire...
Cons: Two for two were returned, as they kept dropping the wireless clients. These were set up in two different locations. One I updated to the latest firmware (didn't resolve) and the other would not even take the firmware update. TrendNet would not give me my money back (was beyond 30-day purchase fr...
Summary: The default 192.168.1.100 IP address didn't work for me but it's easily changed. I used a laptop (Linux) connected to a spare switch in turn connected to the AP. Change the IP address range on the laptop to 192.168.1.xxx and from your browser input the 192.168.1.100 address.
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.
Cons: Total trash. I know how to set up a ap client, and this one dont work. I am able to log into the device and set it up as an AP client. I am able to do a site survey and locate my router and give it the passphrase. It all looks like it should be working but it just doesnt.
