  • Pros: fast, not hard to set up,so so price
  • Cons: While this product is good at times, it is not consistent. First,every time I turn on my pc I have internet for 5 to 8 sec, then its gone and I have to reconnect.

  • Summary: I've tried this with 802.11n and ac networks and it works really well. The speed and range is surprisingly good for the price point. It worked with my windows PCs right out of the box.

Unreiliable and wonky firmware

Daniel W., Newegg
30 May 2015
  • Summary: Every time I start a computer with this adapter, it must start it's associated software, of which you cannot use it without because it contains the drivers, it disconnects and then gets forcibly switched it trendnet's software which adds no real benefit over default windows panel.
  • Pros: Strong signal, fast, usb 3.0
  • Cons: Unreliable, constant drops, wonky software

Trendnet AC1900 router + trendnet AC adapter = poor range......5Ghz range is almost nil

Rotartiller, Amazon
25 May 2015
  • Summary: It is just alright at best. I have this paired with the AC1900 Trendnet router and it hardly ever allows me to connect to the 5 Ghz band at 40 ft and 2 walls. The 2.4 Ghz connects reliably at distance. When in the same room as the router the speed is amazing and it will connect to the 5ghz band.

Trendnet Tech Support was not helpful and seemed easily confused. Off-shoring support is not a good thing

Michael J Giraudo, Amazon
24 January 2015
  • Summary: I purchased this to work with the Trendnet AC1750 Dual Band Router thinking that products from the same company would work. This was not the case. Even though the router and USB adapter were only 30 feet apart (through two dual-pane windows), I could not get the adapter to even see the 5GHz band.
