Bought this for wireless access to an already existing gigabyte network
24 April 2014
Summary: The feature are impressive, but even after (repeated) firmware re-installs for lost connectivity issues, it turns out that there's no update for it. They've killed the product so we are monkeys eyeing our footballs, folks. Stars at two. 'Waste not thine time... edited 8-20-2014 So as an access point, it drops connectivity very often, 4-5 times a day. As a router, it works very well, and never drops signal. And there you go.... raised the stars back up to four.
Summary: The prior reviews on this router pretty much cover everything already, so I'll just add that after nearly two years of service this thing has been nearly bulletproof. I bought this as a replacement for an aging Nexland Wavebase and have not been disappointed.
Love it. The range, the available bandwith, the reliability

Summary: This router I have never had to restart. I'm not sure why but it was a little bit of a pain to initially set up with my Comcast modem but have not had any problems after that first day (it very-well could have just been me). It has lots of advanced settings but not really any "Smart" capabilities.
Summary: I bought this router primarily for its QoS hardware capabilities, hoping it will solve some of my VoIP problems. It got better, but I still have to reboot the router and the ViaTalk VoIP box a couple of times per month to prevent it from dropping calls. More tweaking needed...
Great results so far...much better than Netgear/Dlink routers it replaced

Summary: I bought this router to replace a Dlink DIR-655 Xtreme N(tm) Gigabit router, which I bought to replace a Netgear WPN824NA Wireless Mimo Router. Both the Dlink and Netgear suffered from repeated lost wireless connectivity to my laptops - the network would just not be there several times a week, and I'd have to reboot the router for things to work again. Decided to try the Trendnet and things have been much better.
Summary: As BOTH of my 5 yr old Linksys BEFW11S4'S started being irritable, I needed to find a reliable replacement ( one was used just as a switch). After much research reading many reviews and recommendations I purchased this item ( seems QUALITY for MAJOR brands is NO LONGER JOB ONE.) why I chose: 1) item had mostly glowing reviews, and v.few unsatisfieds.
TRENDnet TEW-622GR Wireless Draft N Gigabit Router

Summary: TRENDnet TEW-633GR 300Mbps Wireless N Gigabit Router I'm diggin' it! Purchased from Amazon.com my TEW-633GR was well packed (for once). The unit is glossy black with a low profile. Both sides are completely slotted for great ventilation. The face has eight lenses that wrap from front to top for the LED indicators. The Power and WAN LED's are both green. The LED's for the gigabit ports are orange for gigabit connections and green for 100mb or 10mb.
Summary: Pros: Easy setup; 4 Auto-sensing Gigabit ports; Wireless Draft N 2.0; 3 Year Warranty; lots of options in UI; included stand; black color to match home components; great low price(on sale). Both HP dv9000t laptop and Dell Inspiron 6000 are now always connected at full speed/bars anywhere in our apartment and haven't dropped connection once(using G, but haven't had chance to try N yet).
Summary: I was looking for a solution to stream DVDs and HD video over wireless network. My old D-Link router would stream video cleanly for a lot of video, but I got sick of random choppy playback. I decided to upgrade to Wireless N and purchased this based on the ratings on smallnetbuilder.com. It was one of the top rated for speed while being reasonably priced. I'm using a cheap SMC USB 802.11n adapter on my HTPC in the next room with about 20ft of distance from the router.
