Need to add wireless to a wired network, this is the one for you.
6 February 2015
Summary: If I can make this work, anybody can. I am old school and like a wired connection for reliability and security. So I wired my house with Cat5 years ago. Now however, with the popularity of phones and tablets I decided I needed to try and become familiar with the newer wireless technologies. After looking around this device looked to be the best solution for my situation.
Used for many POE devices including weather cameras, radios, at our BRADYCOMM communications sites.

Summary: Used for scanner Ops and site antenna equipment to stream audio over IP and purchased many of these for the network for BRADYCOMM, a communications company that uses, in this case, radio scanners to stream public safety, law enforcement, EMS info from BRADYCOMM servers to radio and television broadcasters, and enthusiasts. These are great to regulate the voltage of a non-poe device from a POE switch.

Summary: I've been using this product for almost 2 years now. It generally works very good, when only a half dozen devices are connected at once, such as those owned by my own household on a typical day. We have a Roku, Chromecast. Samsung SmartTV, Xbox 360, 3 smartphones, a Chromebook, and a tablet potentially connected on any given day. It rarely fails on a typical day.
Summary: The only time that TRENDnet hardware has failed me was when I had it all stacked (router/firewall/WAP) and mixed up the power cables. They're too similar! PLEASE, TRENDNET, USE DIFFERENT PLUG SIZES FOR DIFFERENT VOLTAGES!!! I let the smoke out of my awesome GREENnet router :( If you have more than one TRENDnet device, mark the power cables!
Pros: Have had this WAP for over two years, I use it daily for streaming video, and I can count the amount of times I've had to mess with it on one hand -and most of those turned out to be the fault of the connecting device, not the WAP. As for signal strength: My house has thick concrete walls, and the access point is in the far back corner, but I can get a solid signal on the other side of the house, even with a shoddy smartphone. No complaints. I went through half a doze...
Pros: Increased speed of network off verizon fios modem, while it worked, small foot print, easy to use
Cons: Failed after about 13 months. Several attempts to reset and access administrative functions through http have also failed. Like others mentioned this is effectively a paperweight now and I can't recommend trendnet products going forward. Most of these devices generally have some life expectancy but 13 months seems a bit too short..

Summary: It's okay. The unit sets up pretty easily and transfers data as expected. My only issue is it seems that I needed to restart it often to get a good connection. I will be on the wireless network for a time and it will just disconnect or not work well. This will happen with different devices. In all fairness it may be local radio interference, though I have no proof of this.
Pros: I installed two of these in my home over 2 years ago. Small in size, two rotating antennas. Very easy to set-up. I have 4 APs through-out my house, same SSID, ensuring the SSID channels are DIFFERENT. I even scan the air and look at neighbor signals and potentially change mine as performance can be impacted. For ~$25/30 I paid for these, well worth the price. Very satisfied.
