Good value, instructions and software interface lacking a bit

Amazon
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.

does the job nicely and inexpensively

Penacious H, Amazon
23 March 2014
  • Summary: Got for my son's dorm room because his school only allows access points, not routers. Needed their IT department's help to set up but has worked fine ever since.

TRENDnet 54Mbps Wireless G Access Point TN-430APB

Didn't quite work

David A. Maas, Amazon
8 January 2013
  • 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...

For LAN Printer

Russ C., Newegg
26 November 2012
  • Summary: Hire a kid from high school to install this,
  • Pros: Cheap, does the job at making a device wireless.
  • Cons: Does not come with a CAT5 network cable. Not for a novice, requires knowledge of changing your PC's IP address to a certain range in order to connect to it. For most people, this can be easy.

Two duds

Michael B., Newegg
21 September 2012
  • Summary: Won't buy from TrendNet again
  • Pros: Easy to configure
  • 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...

Works Great

Tom B., Newegg
13 April 2012
  • 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.

Trash

Anonymous, Newegg
15 March 2012
  • Pros: None
  • 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.

Xbox wireless adapter alternative

Ryan F., Newegg
14 March 2012
  • Pros: I bought this for my Xbox 360 as opposed to buying Xbox's $100 wireless adapter. Works sweet!
  • Cons: None
