TrendNet TEW-637AP Wireless Easy-N-Upgrader Review

13 January 2009
  • Summary: The TrendNet TEW-637AP is a very attractive-looking package and it certainly makes the leap into wireless-N incredibly easy, even for people who aren’t quite as tech-savvy. Setting up this new access point is much the same as setting up a new wireless network on a “full” wireless router, but it’s just a smidget easier because it doesn’t have to deal with any of the “routing” part of the picture. And the glossy black is pleasing to the eye too.
  • Pros: Very compact and pleasing to the eye, Remarkably easy to install and setup, Offers high speeds and great range, Secure Wireless Protected Setup (WPS) is convenient
  • Cons: Might as well pay a little more for a real wireless-N router, Provided Ethernet cable is pretty short, Using 100Mbps cable may create a bottleneck, No additional Ethernet ports provided

  • Excerpt: If you can’t afford to upgrade your network to 802.11n Draft N 2.0, you might consider purchasing Trendnet’s Easy-N-Upgrader TEW-637AP. Instead of throwing your existing router in the trash, plug it into the Easy-N-Upgrader access point to gain many of the benefits of a Draft N router for about half the price. True dual-band routers operate one radio on the 2.4GHz band and the other on the 5GHz band—the ones we’ve tested have built-in gigabit switches.
  • Pros: Bumps up your G network to near-N speeds without replacing your router.
  • Cons: Mediocre range; only operates at 2.4GHz band instead of dual-band, like real draft-N routers.
