5 out of 5 eggsIt's Still Working

Pros: It's quite efficient in getting the job done (connecting to the interenet with WiFi).

Cons: can't think of any that is major... Maybe the price, considering it's price never changed in a span of 3 years? Also, being a couple of walls away from the adapter seems to lower the bar by 1 or 2, yet the speed is still consistent for even online gaming.

Other Thoughts: It's been about 3.5 years now since I got this baby and I'm debating if I should upgrade to a *newer* wireless adapter or keep it. The thing is, I don't really need to BECAUSE this adapter is still GOING ON STRONG.

I moved roughly 4 times in 3 various locations in the state (MN) and final trip to MI then to VA (on the road), and I also tend to bring my entire mid-tower desktop to my cousins for gaming when I still lived in MN. So yeah, my adapter has endured some rough moving, cold weathers (weeks of being left alone in a garage), is a router s1ut (connected fine with various routers) and guess what? It's still running F-I-N-E.

I wonder why it's price never changed in the span of 3 years? So yeah you could spend 30 bucks elsewhere and get a newer adapter. From an upgrade definitely, but for a first time machine that will last you at least 3+ years? This guy isn't so bad.

2 out of 5 eggswell it was working

Pros: Easy to install, no fuss no muss. Worked great for a long time.

Cons: It DID work really well for over a year. I bought this card in feb of 2012 and as of Oct of this year speeds have been slowly declining. I went from 11mbs to 8 to 7 to 5 to 3 and now to .067. All other wireless devices connect and run top speeds in the house except for this one. So thats pretty crummy for it to just fail like that after awhile and no way to get a fix for it. Its just broken.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Valued Customer,

I apologize for your overall frustration for this adapter not working as promised. If possible please uninstall and re-install driver from the following link, http://www.trendnet.com/support/supportdetail.asp?prod=180_TEW-623PI. If it still doesn’t help, please contact me directly at adrian@trendnet.com with "Newegg TEW-623PI Review" in the subject line and I will be able to assist you immediately. Thank you for taking the time to review our product and I hope to hear from you soon.

Warm Regards,

Adrian TRENDnet Support Team

3 out of 5 eggsNot a bad card

Pros: It does it's job well when you ask it to.

Cons: You have to ask it to do it's job. Every time you boot up, you have to reconnect to the network where with most cards it automatically connects (from my experience anyway) even tried uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers. Same story.

Other Thoughts: Good for it's price. If you don't mind asking it how it's day is going, buy it.

1 out of 5 eggsVery misleading

Pros: Installs easy

Cons: Unfortunately can only hit 802.11n speeds when paired with the TEW-639GR router. Yes, they mention it, but one would expect this to just be marketing jargon to sell more routers. I don't really consider this 802.11n if it doesn't pair with 802.11n routers.

Directly from TRENDnet:
"The TEW-632PI Wireless N PCI adapter is compatible with your... router, but it will only connect at 802.11g speeds (54Mbps). For 802.11n speeds (300Mbps) you can purchase this adapter with our TEW-639GR Wireless N Router...

Unfortunately the TEW-623PI is not dual band, it only operates on the 2.4Ghz frequency spectrum. We do have the TEW-664UB, which is a Wireless N Dual Band USB Adapter. You can find this product on our website under 300Mbps Wireless N Dualband products."

Other Thoughts: Yes, every description for this adapter reads the exact same, but nowhere does it say that it WON'T work with another n-router. This proved I was wrong. I don't want someone else to be similarly misled.

2 out of 5 eggsGreat until it died

Pros: Fast, simple, worked as advertised with default windows wireless drivers, no bloated software suite needed. This was an awesome replacement for my unreliable lan adapter.

Cons: Antennas were very cheap and flimsy, don't hold together very well. Device ceased working in less than a year.

Other Thoughts: Only 10 months of operation until it gave out about a week ago and is no longer detected by the machine. This is a shame because it was a very good redundant connection in my server computer which I have no physical access to right now, and need a constant internet route to in the event of the wired network failing.

2 out of 5 eggsTerrible Signal

Pros: It still works if you're in the same room as the router

Cons: You basically have to be in the same room as the router to get a signal with this thing. All of my other wireless devices (laptop, iphone, ipad, playstation) can get a good+ signal from anywhere in my house (~1300 sqft). This thing gets a weak and or inconsistent signal in one room over.

I've resorted to using a shared connection with my work laptop inorder to get my desktop on the internet.

1 out of 5 eggsWish I'd Read Reviews First

Pros: Easy to install...and that's it!

Cons: Worked well for nine mths or so then connections were spotty at best. Guess I should have been grateful for that since four months ago it completely stopped working. Will never buy this brand again!

4 out of 5 eggsNo problems here

Pros: Runs pretty smooth and at decent speeds. The 3 antennas make for picking up a fairly strong signal even from the far end of the house. I believe in the whole time I've had it, it only dropped the signal maybe once or twice. Decent card for not a lot of $$

Cons: The first time I installed it no matter what I would do it would not auto connect to my preferred network on start up. I'd have to manually do so, which isn't a big deal just a tiny nitpick. When I performed a recovery not too long ago that issue seemed to correct itself.

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Initial setup was quick & painless, combo'd with a trendnet wireless router all was well.

Cons: built a new pc and installed the card, nothing but frustration due to super slow download speeds. tested with a trendnet usb wireless adapter and download speeds were fine. tew-623 left a bad taste after initially performing so well
