Useless at 5Ghz operation unless you use a VERY specific setting!

  • Summary: I just bought one of these and had major issues getting it connected at 5Ghz to a TRENDnet TEW-812DRU Router until I read a comment that a TRENDnet customer service agent added to another review here. The TRENDnet support person said that the router had to be set to Channel 149 (5Ghz) with an 80Mhz Bandwidth to get the bridge to work at 5Ghz. I had tried just about every combination of 5Ghz, SSID, Channel, etc.

I have to restart it periodically because it will suddenly stop passing broadcast traffic like DHCP requests across the link

review for Media Bridge - TEW-800MB

Akshun J "Akshun J", Amazon
11 October 2014
  • Summary: UPDATE: After using the unit for a few days, and then going back to read these reviews in a more detailed fashion, I realize that the mistake was mine. These reviews are accurate for the product, and the product is defective. It continuously drops the 5Ghz connection and also chokes under heavy network load. Unfortunately, I am WAY out of the return window. AND I BOUGHT TWO OF THESE THINGS!!!

This unit has a "green" component that shuts itself down ...

  • Summary: This unit has a "green" component that shuts itself down if there is no detected outgoing activity for a short while. I use this to connect Tivo and Sonos which goes overnight without being used. I then have to power cycle the unit to get it to work. Since I may be away for a week or so my Tivo loses all of its programming. The manufacture says this "green feature" cannot be disabled.
