3 out of 5 eggsSo-So

Pros: Easy to setup.

Cons: Drops connection much more often than the TRENDnet Ethernet connection it replaced. This usually occurs if you step away only to come back and the page is gone and you then have to get it going again which is somethings difficult. Ipconfig always shows the connection is fine and in place. Very frustrating as you try to get it back again. The wireless router is 4 feet from the pc? May go back to my old router if this doesn't stop.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello,

Please update the router with the latest firmware update and then reset it and reconfigure it. Choose a different channel to see if you get better results. Check the placement, try to place it as high as possible and avoid anything that would cause radio frequency interference. If you need assistance with the router please email Adrian@trendnet.com and we’ll have someone help you as soon as possible. Please include a link to this review.


Regards,

Adrian

5 out of 5 eggsBudget board makes a great blank slate for OpenWRT

Pros: Recently, this was on sale for super cheap. Inside is a Cameo WLN-2229, the same board as in the D-Link DIR-601 B1.

The combination of the Atheros chipset, OpenWRT support, and modification-friendly design makes this an excellent choice for the advanced cheapskate.

Things I like:

- The serial and JTAG connector footprints are not already filled in with solder, which saves a lot of time and hassle if I need to populate them.
- Even though this router was not marketed with USB funcitonality, Cameo routed the USB lines from the CPU to an accessible place so that it can be modded in later, if needed.
- Unlike the D-Link router mentioned above, TRENDnet specified to populate the power switch. This makes it really easy to power cycle the unit over and over again while testing/debugging without having to mess with the power connector.

Cons: The smooth, shiny piano black finish is a dust and fingerprint magnet. I would've gone with a matte or textured finish if it were my decision...

5 out of 5 eggsGood router for cheap

Pros: Great little router that has run like a champ for over 2 years now. I got it on sale for $15 in 2012, and just bought another one for $7 (BF 2014) for a relative with wireless issues.

Cons: Limited Cable ports in the back

Other Thoughts: Not sure its worth the full price, but if you see it on sale, definitely snag it.

2 out of 5 eggsOnly last a few years.

Pros: When they work, they're ok.

Cons: Wireless only lasts a few years.

Other Thoughts: I've gone through two of these. They last a couple of years and then the wireless starts having connection and speed problems.

Manufacturer Response:

4 out of 5 eggsGood with OpenWRT

Pros: Bought to use as a bridge to give my xbox, blu-Ray player, etc. wireless access in the basement without moving my cable modem and wireless router. Works well for this purpose.

Cons: Took a while to get it up and running. Insufficient flash able memory space to run a GUI on OpenWRT, so make sure you're comfy with using command line for Linux networking config (... I'm not. Learning experience for me, but works now.)

Other Thoughts: All in all a decent buy. Worked for intended use.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat value

Pros: Great value for the price. Installation and configuration were very easy. Wireless range is adequate for my house, but the speed does drop off with the distance. Measured idle power consumption at around 1.3 W. Very impressive.

Cons: None, if you have reasonable expectations given the price.

Other Thoughts: Know what you want and need. I'm sure you can find a router with better wireless coverage. Just not at this price and power consumption.
