20 April 2015
  • Conclusion: Modem/Routers using the latest 802.11ac standard offer a real step up compared to the previous generation 802.11n models but unfortunately not all are created equal so as you can clearly see from our charts the TEW-818DRU is really no match for the R7000 Nighthawk by Netgear and the WRT1900AC by...

Trendnet TEW-818DRU review

23 August 2014
  • Excerpt: The Trendnet TEW-818DRU is very light for an 802.11ac router, which might be a strange thing to note when a router isn’t typically something you move around. However, this particular model was so light when we unboxed it we were momentarily concerned it was an empty dummy unit.

  • Summary: The Trendnet TEW-818DRU looks better on paper than we experienced in practice. Thanks to its 3x3 MIMO configuration, its short-range performance is up there with some of the fastest 802.11ac routers, but it was less impressive at long range.

Trendnet TEW-818DRU im Test

23 May 2014
  • Summary: Der TEW-818DRU bietet eine leistungsfähige Hardware auf dem neuesten Stand der Technik. Die mitgelieferte Firmware muss jedoch in jeder Hinsicht als völlig unzureichend bezeichnet werden. Es fehlen zahlreiche Features und man hat mit Bugs zu kämpfen. Es wird nicht einmal Beta-Niveau erreicht.
  • Pros: Leistungsfähige Hardware, DD-WRT direkt vom Hersteller verfügbar
  • Cons: keine Erkennung des Internetzugangs praktisch unbrauchbare IPv6-Unterstützung Firmware "spricht" schlechtes Deutsch 20 Sekunden Wartezeit bei Konfigurationsänderung untaugliche Sommerzeitregeln, zahlreiche Firmwarebugs, Garantieverlust bei Installation von DD-WRT, kein DSL-Modem integriert
