Doesn't get even close to claimed speeds in a recent-construction condominium

Charles, Amazon
11 June 2014
  • Summary: I'm in a sub-1000sqft unit in a high rise building less than 5 years old -- all the big systems that put interesting loads on the electrical supply (elevators, air conditioning, etc) are far, far away from me. As such, I'd expect to get something remotely close to advertised speeds... right?

Too Easy

Michael C., Newegg
15 February 2014
  • Summary: This thing is awesome. I paired it with another trendnet TPL-401E and it worked like a champ. Just plug it in and away it goes. Way to easy. Fast speeds, low latency, and just works.
  • Pros: Ease of use, cost, 4 ports, plug-n-play
  • Cons: None

Bad Product

  • Summary: Drop off after sync for 5 to 10 minutes. It's very difficult to get linked and not reliable product at all.

disappointed

Nathan F., Newegg
29 September 2013
  • Summary: Paired with a TRENDnet TPL-405E 4-Port Powerline AV Adapter
  • Pros: No more wireless, so at least there is great stability increase.
  • Cons: I'm sure it's the wiring in my old house but 40 Mbps? That's a far cry from the claimed 500 Mbps. And yes I know it says "up to" but I'm still not happy.

Yep it works

  • Summary: I have a 25mb dsl line and the router is upstairs in my house. My PS3 is downstairs and via wifi I normally get download speed ~5mb and upload of 700k. Hooked this up and it basically doubled my d/l speed to about 9.7mb. Gave it 4 stars only because I am selfish.

Works Perfectly

Graeme Boddy, Amazon

  • Summary: After multiple attempts to synch, i resorted to reading the instruction manual... DOH! After I did what it said, I synched up immediately and all is well - I was running around 120Mbps.

Not as advertised. You'll never get that speed.

Jody Williams "--JC", Amazon
9 May 2013
  • Summary: So what they never tell you about this product, not anywhere that I could find at least, is that the more things plugged into that circuit around your home (not just more network adapters, just anything period), the worse the performance.

Excellent

Amazon Customer, Amazon

  • Summary: Love Trendnet. The adapter just needs to be plugged into an outlet (directly - NOT into extension cable) and voila - you have wired internet. Superfast and works fantastic in all three levels of my 2600 sqft house.
