Tempermental

Jonathan O., Newegg

  • Summary: Why WHY can't one company make a competent internal N wireless adapter? We don't need your included garbage-ware wireless util, we just need it to work consistently and for more than a month before it goes into a landfill. Suck less hard. Really. Please.
  • Pros: Basic, no-frills adapter. Decent size.
  • Cons: Schizophrenic behavior would basically define this NIC. It connects, but pings go from 20ms to 500ms in fits and spurts. All over the place. A laptop right next to it pinging google on it's built-in wifi is rock solid. Seems to have trouble maintaining a connection with certain brands of consumer...

  • Summary: This card is pretty much all it claims to be
  • Pros: Basically works as intended...barely have any interruption with this thing and it was very easy to install and get set up.
  • Cons: The wifi range on this thing might be a minor problem to some people that need to connect to a router that's inside a bigger building.

  • Summary: Was easy to install. Am using both bands. Both show 100%. In the past I had 2 USB wireless adapters , from another manufacturer (NG), "go bad". They were always hot and would loose connection and have to be reset. For 2 years, have used wired connection to the router.

Not enough range

Richard H., Newegg
14 February 2015

Installed and active but no networks detected

Stanley B., Newegg
11 February 2015
  • Summary: Note of interest: I am giving this 3 eggs because there is a chance that this is due to my system configuration. The windows version I am running was already installed on my Asus laptop, and miraculously booted when I put it in my new desktop.
  • Pros: It does have a small form factor, and the antennas LOOK like they would work nicely, even though they don't. The install was easy enough.
  • Cons: Simply cannot detect any networks. Period. There are fifteen wireless signals in my list on both the other computers in this same room, yet the card which is installed and claims to be working perfectly can't see a single one. My suspicion is the antennas, either the connection with them or their...

Works with Windows Server 2012 R2!

Alex S., Newegg
1 February 2015
  • Pros: At first I didn't realize that the Windows feature named "Wireless LAN Service" must be installed for this to work on Windows Server 2012 R2. Having installed that feature, it works perfectly!
  • Cons: Bracket doesn't fit my Wesena case, but then again, what does! :)

not long term reliable

Glenn S., Newegg
28 January 2015
  • Summary: Not worth the time , trouble and expense of getting a RMA from TRENDnet and paying shipping there and back, even though the unit is under warranty.
  • Pros: worked great when I first got it.
  • Cons: died, stopped working after 9 months, shows 0 bars signal out of 5 bars and shows no SSID's detected, when many SSID's exists in a detectable range
