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. The paper instructions that come in the box give NO instructions beyond the basic setup, which I found mildly annoying.
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 wireless network would melt down and become unusable.
Summary: TRENDnet 54 Mbps Wireless G Broadband Router TEW-432BRP (Blue) Do not waste your time or money on this product or any Trendnet Product. The product is totally inferior for its purpose. It loses my wireless network 2 to 3 times a week. I must go all that way back to the beginning and reprogram it for my network. Trendnet's technical support is totally incapable to understanding their product and being of any meaningful assistance.
Don't let the low price or bad reviews here fool you..works great as an Access Point also, August 23, 2009

Summary: I waited one full week of operating the unit before writing this review. This was my first Trendnet product - to use as as a wireless ethernet bridge. I was worried about the quality and other things based on some really bad reviews on this site. But other than some shortcomings in the documentation, the product itself works very well.
Summary: The reason I purchased this item was to hook up my Xbox 360 to the internet. I didn't even want to play games over the network, I just wanted to download updates and game add ons (like for Batman AC). The set up is horrible. Instructions are worthless. If you buy this, read the reviews on here of people who are smarter than the employees of TRENDnet to see how to actually set it up. Now to the review of why I bought it. It did work..... for about 10 minutes.
Summary: This is being used with Directv to download movies. (You need a high-speed internet connection). I read reviews on this product, and there are many all over the net. Many have had problems getting the thing to work, and I was one of them. It took a few hours, and to tell the truth I cant say for sure how I finally got it working. However, once connected, it works great. You can download movies, directv shows, etc, at a good speed.
Summary: Installation was quick. The web menus are very easy to configure. This unit is replacing an old Linksys WRT54G, and we have to admit... this Trendnet unit has at least x3 the signal strength and sustained speed. I'd like to think our WRT54G was old, but I don't think that's the reason! Anyway, this unit does WPA2. Everything is just really easy to configure. At this price, you can't go wrong.
