2 out of 5 eggsWorks well, when it works

This review is from: TRENDnet TEW-812DRU V2 AC1750 Dual Band Wireless Router - 4 Gigabit port, DD-WRT Open Source support

Pros: Dual band, very fast, decent range ( I can go down two flights of stairs and off the property to smoke, and still be connected to my router) and plenty of configuration options for those who are savvy enough to know how to work them. Looks sleek, fits on a bookshelf, and doesn't have dozens of antennas sticking out from it, which is something I definitely like.

Cons: I came back from an extended vacation and work trip, and hadn't used the router in a good 5 months. I plugged it back in after being boxed up, got it up and running, and started to notice that it would not stay connected to the internet. It constantly required a reboot. I would renew the IP address and that would work for a bit, but after about 10 times, it required a reboot to start working again. After the 20th reboot, I was no longer even able to access the routers page.

I checked to see if there might have been a firmware update, and there was, so I downloaded it. After several failed attempts to update the firmware, I was able to finally get the firmware updated without the router shutting off. Unfortunately, the update did nothing to solve the problem of connectivity. After some discussion with the help desk online, they told me to send it in for "possible" warranty replacement. I have to pay for the shipping, as well as providing everything that came in the box, otherwise they will not even consider replacing, and finally I decided to just buy a new router and take this one as a loss.

Other Thoughts: I really liked this router. It fit well on my bookshelf, hidden from sight, and gave me a good 6 months of lighting fast internet. Unfortunately, after what I went through with the warranty and the issue with updating the firmware, I feel horrible for recommending this product to all of my friends.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Clinton,

We are sorry to hear that you had an issue with the router. The original box and other materials are not required for warranty services. It just needs to be packaged properly for safe delivery. We recommend sending in the unit and power supplies when sending in a unit for warranty services so we can replace both. If you would still like to submit a warranty claim on the unit please email Adrian@trendnet.com and we will have someone assist you as soon as possible. Please include a link to this review.



Regards,

Adrian

1 out of 5 eggsWorse router ever

This review is from: TRENDnet TEW-812DRU V2 AC1750 Dual Band Wireless Router - 4 Gigabit port, DD-WRT Open Source support

Pros: none

Cons: This router was constantly having issues rebooting after ever change and spotty wireless configuration. Today it says there was a problem with my cable modem. I rebooted all of them several times and still same problem. Plugged in a machine directly to the modem and no problems to Internet. Plugged in my older n router...no issues. Returning this now.

5 out of 5 eggsReliable router

This review is from: TRENDnet TEW-812DRU V2 AC1750 Dual Band Wireless Router - 4 Gigabit port, DD-WRT Open Source support

Pros: Easy configuration web interface and strong signal

Cons: No wall mount

Other Thoughts: I had this router for 5 months and still haven't rebooted it. I have strong signal in all places in my townhouse. This is by far the best wireless router I've ever had. I have owned Dlink and Linksys.

1 out of 5 eggsTRENDon't

This review is from: TRENDnet TEW-812DRU V2 AC1750 Dual Band Wireless Router - 4 Gigabit port, DD-WRT Open Source support

Pros: Price?
I now have a reason to re-finish my walls now that I've punched so many holes in them from trying to get this to preform as advertised.

Cons: Coverage is spotty, if you can get it. I purchased it for my apartment, and made the mistake of suggesting it to my friend for their house based on all of the high reviews. I have issues getting speeds above 54 Mbps when I'm holding it in 1 hand, and my laptop is on my lap. Customer support blamed me for the poor performance, not updating my drivers and having a dual boot of Linux and Windows.

Other Thoughts: Needless to say, I'm not going to be purchasing a TRENDnet device anytime soon. This was more of a letdown than Windows Vista.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great 2.4 and 5 GHz, DDWRT

This review is from: TRENDnet TEW-812DRU V2 AC1750 Dual Band Wireless Router - 4 Gigabit port, DD-WRT Open Source support

Pros: Easy setup, Simple menus. Trendnet site has open source firmware link which looks like it is DDWRT. The one USB port is identified as USB 3.0 on box.

Cons: No external antennae

Other Thoughts: Simple menus and setup. If you want options DDWRT is supported with a link on Trendnet site. Had it a month and it works great on both bands simultaneously. One USB 3.0 port is identified on the box but couldn't find ID'ed anywhere else.

2 out of 5 eggsTEW-812DRU failing

This review is from: TRENDnet TEW-812DRU V2 AC1750 Dual Band Wireless Router - 4 Gigabit port, DD-WRT Open Source support

Pros: When it worked, I was impressed. My Netflix connection is at HD levels all the time, and loaded almost instantly.
Good speeds on my home wired network, and even gave me satisfactory WI-FI on my Samsung Note 3. Unfortunately not very good range over the previous router I was using.

Cons: What to say. If I knew why the internet connection just drops out arbitrarily, I would/could troubleshoot it. I do not find out until I go to a site, and get the page can't display. Check in my control panel and see the dreaded red X.
Two calls to TrendNet, and other than telling me to reset the router, I was told to return it.

Other Thoughts: I appreciate the ability to connect instantly with TrendNet technical. Very refreshing.
