1 out of 5 eggsTrendnet support does not exist

Pros: It came free when I purchased an Asus router.

Cons: The initial setup seemed fairly straight forward, but then it never connected with my devices. I tried to access the webgui again to see what was wrong, but it no longer lets me have access, even when I connect directly to it with a wired connection. I filed a support ticket with Trendnet, and they promised to get back to me in 2 working days, but Trendnet never tried to contact me, even after I sent them a second email.

Other Thoughts: It may sill work or it may be a bad one but I will never know because their techs won't contact me.

2 out of 5 eggsDon't use with Samsung equipment

Pros: It has decent speed and range

Cons: It doesn't work with Samsung equipment like TVs and Bluray players (tried quite a few out). I captured the issue with wireshark to show the packets that the Samsung equipment sends to validate the network connection. These packets are not repeated to the gateway which causes the Samsung equipment to fail to connect to the network (unfortunately if they don't dial out properly then they won't talk on the network at all).

I don't know what the tech support rep did with all the data I gave him but he let my support ticket expire, then when I had him re-opened the ticket he claims that he passed the information on to engineering. They haven't updated the firmware in a long time so I doubt they'll ever fix this problem. While debugging this I came across other issues that sounded like the same problem affecting other brands, one in particular was a Japanese audio receiver unit, the name escapes me. So if you plan on buying a bunch of these I recommend getting one to start with and making sure it works with the rest of your gear.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Customer Service!

Pros: I have been using two of these media bridges connected to a Netgear router. After working flawlessly for nearly one year, one of them started dropping connections. TrendNet customer service was FIRST CLASS in helping me return and replace my bridge. I appreciate their service and will be buying and recommending their products in the future.

Cons: None.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: It turned on

Cons: Purchased this based upon a review I saw from smallnetworkbuilder . I instantly regret it. Basically after struggling with CRC erros with 3 different wireless routers and spending literally hours changing every setting on this device I can conclude its trash.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat item

Pros: It works. Great speed. Have not had a drop in signal at all. I stream blue ray quality movies over it all night and it doesn't even hiccup. Easy setup. Four ports in the back are awesome for Xbox and ps3. I have mine next to my tv with my Xbox, printer, and htpc plugged into it with two laptops using the signal on the couch. Can't go wrong.

Cons: Price, but I got mine during a sale last year.

1 out of 5 eggsWorks well when it's connect

Pros: Easy to set up and get working. I had it connected to my router with WPA2 password in about 10 minutes.

Cons: Drops connection to my Ubuntu file server every 30 mins. I get an error which says "bad file descriptor" on VLC and the connection vanishes for a few seconds. I contacted support, re-flashed the same firmware on it (already had the latest), and reset the router. It still does the same thing. Now I've got a product for home entertainment that interrupts movies every 30 minutes. Seems like the keep alive is not being propagated correctly on the bridge. If I plug my HTPC directly to my router via a long ethernet cable, it works fine. If you use a Linux file server and samba, I'd say get a different bridge.

Other Thoughts: Trendnet support via email was responsive but their suggestions didn't help. I don't know what re-flashing the same firmware and resetting the router right after I've purchased it is supposed to accomplish. In this case, it accomplished exactly what you would expect: nothing.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi Anonymous,

We are so sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused you. If not mistaken, other connections stayed intact over the TEW-680MB link, but Linux file server and samba. If possible we would like to hear a bit more from you to replicate this issue. Please contact me at Adrian@trendnet.com with “Newegg TEW-680MB R” in the subject line and I will respond immediately to assist. I am looking forward to hearing from you soon and hope to restore your faith in TRENDnet’s products.

Warmest regards,

Adrian
