Summary: TRENDnet TEW-432BRP Wireless G Router Everytime I want to use my computer I have to go to the router, unplug the power cord, and plug it in again to get it to pick up the internet signal. I will be replacing it ASAP. I hope I can return it...
Summary: TRENDnet TEW-424UB USB Wireless Network Adapter I can install the driver and utility, but the connection between this adapter and router gets on and off every few seconds. I tried it in two computers, 2K and XP, both showed the same situation -- connect and disconnect intermittently.
I can't believe I need a "real" name to post this, Amazon

Summary: This router is a great value if you're in a hurry to get things set up on a budget. That being said, it only lasts about 6 months before going totally nonresponsive... (as in, you can no longer access the router from your computer... the only feature that works is auto setup. So your router will continue to transmit a signal.. unsecured... so if you're fine with your neighbors using your broadband to stream netflix, this is the router for you. If not, read on.
Summary: This router is no so good at the beginning, it comes with a really old firmware that was disconnecting the only one laptop around it every 10 minutes, I had to update and know is working as advertised.
Summary: I bought this router a few years back for $[...] after rebates from CompUSA. Mine is a C1 revision model. I've kept up on firmware updates and tweaked my configuration. I've got 5 wireless devices and 3 wired devices hooked into it. It's worked fine in the past, but now it requires a reboot nearly every day or else it drops the connection speed to dismal levels.
Summary: Compared to a linksys router this one was a little harder to setup. I had to call support to get it going. The security was different and it comes with a utility that is more of a hinderance than a help. Once I got it going it works like a champ. Only other negative is that for some reason my powerline adapters are not getting the speed they were getting with linksys.
Summary: This product works fine just like every router! The reason why I choose this over Linksys was that I was getting for $9.99 after $25 rebate. But guess what the rebate was valid till 08/31 I bought it like on 08/25 and I sent the buy.com receipt(dated 08/25). The condition was it should reach them before Oct 1st or at-least it should have been post marked.
Summary: I returned this router since it could not assign static local IP addresses based on a MAC address of a wireless game adapter or other wireless client. For most people this probably doesn't matter. But if you want to do port forwarding for something like a slingbox or game server, this router simply won't do the job.
Summary: It was easy to set up when I did not choose to enable security features. But be sure to read the manual if you have no wireless router setup experiences. However, it seemed to me WEP (wired equivalent privacy) did not work. I had to choose WPA-PSK, which is technically a better choice. It was very painful for me to set it up. I eventually had to upgrade all my wireless adapter's driver and configuration utility, and give up Microsoft's wireless zero configuration.
