Not Mac Friendly

Unhappy Customer "Customer", Amazon
5 September 2009
  • Summary: Despite the product descriptions stating the TRENDnet TEW-631BRP, "works with Windows 95/98/NT/2000/XP/2003 Server/Vista, Linux and Mac OS," the setup disc provided with the product ONLY works with Windows. Trendnet provides NO SUPPORT for a Mac user.

Piece of Garbage.

  • Summary: I have to reset this damned thing every day - in fact, twice a day (remove power plug; use software to find a new IP address) For the last week, it goes out 2x per day. Its done this since we got it, approx 2 - 3 months ago. It worked for about 1 month, and sporadically went out - every few days we'd have to reset it, and blamed it on the cable Co.; then it increased to every day. now its 2x per day.

Decent for home, NO NO for work

Arizona Phoenix "The Phoenix", Amazon
21 February 2009
  • Summary: If you need to download big files, this thing is a piece of crap. The proximity is low, it's good for about 12 feet, but if you're needing connectivity 20+ feet, this thing is HORRIBLE. Avoid.

Initial setup and performance great, but...

L. Autry, Amazon
21 August 2008
  • Summary: Installed this on a Monday with little effort. Immediately updated firmware, also with no problems. Great performance until Friday night and Saturday. It could not sustain wireless connections on any of three computers using wireless in my home or the wireless print server/bridge. I attempted to go through setup again but this router could not find my Motorola cable modem (model 5101).

Unreliable

Rodney Blake "Bart", Amazon
15 May 2008
  • Summary: Worked great for about a month, then started cutting out whenever I streamed video from the Internet. I would have to unplug it to reset 4 or 5 times a week. Now it doesn't work at all. I've had it for 10 months.

Poor Quality Router

G. Connolly, Amazon
1 February 2008
  • Summary: I'm relatively experienced with installing and using wireless router technology. My roommate bought this router when we first moved into our current place. It arrived, and I installed it, making sure to update the firmware immediately after setting it up. This router has been nothing but trouble from day one, constantly cutting off Internet connections, and needing to be refreshed at least three or four times a week.

0/5 stars - useless product

J. VAN DER ZWAN, Amazon
18 December 2007
  • Summary: I have set up wireless networks before, and thought this trendnet router was a bargain for what it promised. however, i have never had so much trouble setting up a network. Eventually I only got it working on one of my laptops, and their customer support tried for an hour to help me out, to no avail. I have returned it and have ordered the more expensive d-link extreme. I really do not recommend anyone purchasing this product.

nothing works

Robert Marshall "Sheriff of Tucson", Amazon
29 August 2007
  • Summary: I'm fairly experience at wireless networking, currently re-setup my D-Link 108MB (1.5 hours including removal of the trendnet hardware and software) after trying for 3 weeks to get trendnet to work. I had purchased the pcmcia card, the desktop pci card and the router, all "N"s. Subsequently returned all. Amazon's return policy is really great although I seldom need to use it.

Stay away from Trendnet

D. Tran "DT", Amazon
24 August 2007
  • Summary: I tried this on 2 PC, and it didn't work on either one. The manual was easy to follow, but after I had done what it told me to do the device still didn't work. I called tech support (I don't believe they have 24/7 as they ads) and a lady asked me for my name and number so that they would call me back the next day. She told me she was not a tech support (so why should she take the call?), and it was late then (how a 24/7 service can have late hours, you judge it).
