1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: Nice size for door stop. Not too big to trip over. Enough weight to keep a door open. Rubber stoppers help!

Provides nice heat when needed.

Get to pay for RMA shipping!

Cons: DOA.

Get to pay for RMA shipping!

More expensive than a regular door stop wedge.

Other Thoughts: Would go 1/2 a star.

2 out of 5 eggsHot Hot Hot (but not like a girl!)

Pros: - price per performance (according to specs)
- DD-WRT support
- The engineers who designed this thing should be FIRED on spot!

Cons: - extra high temperatures; DD-WRT reported 100C!!!
- once you install DD-WRT your warranty is gone and you are on your own (this was my choice!)
Once I received the unit I installed latest firmware but I was not happy with performance, it was hot and I wanted DD-WRT. Installed open source and reported temp was in 100C!!! - I was hoping for a mistake so I opened the router and behold, no mistake, that cooler was hot like an oven. It was not even well tighten against the chip so I removed it, add CPU thermal paste and put it back. This time, with open case it settled at 85C but it's winter (70F inside) and there was barely some activity on it.

Other Thoughts: I ordered small copper RAM heat sinks and installed them today and with open case it will settle at 75C (CPU usage ~ 20-25%). Gosh all of them are very hot at the touch and that's unacceptable imho. I think I need to make a hole in the case and install a fan to help with the cooling.
But before going that route now I'm going to give him a try for a couple of days to see if it's worth the trouble. If not, I'm out two dozen bucks (I added copper RAM heat sinks) but at least I know to avoid this manufacturer in the future!
I'd be curios what Adrian or one of the TRENDnet support people has to say about the main chip recommended limit temperature... 210F?

Later Edit: after adding heat sink, installing a small fan to cool off the sink (powered from its own USB port at this time) and finding a version of DD-WRT that fits my needs, this router was on for almost a month now, running stable without any issues. Temps are in the lower 60C.

1 out of 5 eggsBig Mistake

Pros: If you simply want to plug with the shipped password and ssid it's fine

Cons: Numerous calls to tech support was a waste of time. I was never able to gain access to the routers interface. The shipped password doesn't work . I would not recommend.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello,

We are sorry to hear that you are experiencing issues with the AC1200 Dual Band Wireless Router, TEW-811DRU. The password to the router is case sensitive and sometimes it is easy to confuse zeros for an “O” or a 1 with a lower case “L”. We have taken measures to prevent this confusion in our newer products but the TEW-811DRU may have some passwords that can be irksome. Please email me at adrian@trendnet.com and we will have a support representative contact you to help you with the password. Please include a link to this review.

Adrian

1 out of 5 eggsWaste of money at any price

Pros: I spent the entire time it was plugged in trying to get it to work (unsuccessfully) so nothing good to say.

Cons: After spending the better part of two days trying to get it set up and working, it died. The DHCP server appears to still be working, but no Internet access and the web GUI died, so, it's a brick. Given that it is no longer supported by the manufacturer, I can't recommend anything from trendnet.

5 out of 5 eggsOutperforms Netgear and Linksys Routers Costing 5x as Much

Pros: Faster than my Linksys AC1200, Netgear N300 and N900. Plus it's ready for DD-WRT open source software. Better wireless performance than my Asus RT-N56U.

Cons: Would be epic if it included an electric cooling fan, as very few routers currently have them.

Other Thoughts: For $30 you cannot lose.

1 out of 5 eggsDead before 1 year

Pros: Cheaper than most
Gigabit connection worked well
Ran both frequency same time

Cons: Range wasnt that great
Connection would randomly drop
Finally died completely in less than a year
^No lights, no connection detected, no nothing dead
Very upset im back in the market for a router in less than a year..

Other Thoughts: From Trendnet website:
"The TEW-811DRU (Version v1.0R) has been discontinued."
Maybe others have experienced dead units like mine.
Will update if Trendnet can fix this.

1 out of 5 eggsCheap disappointment

Pros: Discontinued by manufacturer (according to their product page)

Cons: Unstable, required daily resets. Very hot to the touch, newer dd-wrt firmware based off "mini" build. Died after 1 month

Other Thoughts: It was too unstable to use as a router, so I attempted to repurposed it as a wired USB print server. It didn't handle that well either. The Trendnet printer-sharing software (USB over network) caused Windows 10 to BSOD after installation. It would also occasionally cause USB connect/disconnect beeps when it had trouble connecting to the router. When it did work, it would stop responding to print requests daily and would require a reset.

After I grew tired of resetting it daily, I chose to try my luck with DD-WRT instead. Unfortunately, I was further disappointed by this router when I discovered the newer builds were based off the "mini" version and the USB printer server was not functioning.

After about 1 month of use (or attempted use), it has finally stopped responding completely. Since I voided the warranty by flashing DD-WRT, it will be annoying an e-waste container instead of me in the near future.

4 out of 5 eggsCheap modders dream! DD-WRT!

Pros: Price on sale, even at what seems to be regular price its decent, with a bit of elbow grease, you can have a sweet unit for cheap.
DD-WRT support
AC1200 speeds

Cons: Stock firmware is kinda lame, but I literally had the unit on the stock firmware just log enough to flash to DD-WRT

Other Thoughts: The internal antennas are connected using normal U.FL connectors (same tiny connectors used in laptops wireless cards to internal antennas), which was great, had a couple U.FL to SMA cables, drilled a couple holes in the housing on top, mounted a couple external antennas. Using DD-WRT, turned the unit into a wireless client, and connected my desktop to one of the gigabit ports. After a bit of setup, was running around 800Mbps @ 5Ghz from this unit to my buddies sorta lame AC1200 router. Gaming without issue! (was worried about latency through a couple walls, only added 5-15ms ping depending on the game)

5 out of 5 eggsGreat price with promo, stable .

Pros: Getting 20 to 25 MBps with ethernet external drive with wireless ac 5. Distance of 15 ft. 2.4 n,g is also good. Doesn't lose connection.

Cons: Range isn't great, but for price can't beat.

Other Thoughts: Updated firmware first thing, non open source version. Works great. I haven't used USB port so not sure of quality of port on it.
