5 out of 5 eggsDual band is Great

Pros: Great wireless router. ive had mine 5 years now and have had very few problems with it once I got it configured right. I reboot it probably once a month whether it has problems or not. just to give it a break.

Cons: it gets pretty hot and has overloaded before when downloading large files.

1 out of 5 eggsPoor product

Pros: Easy to set up.
I bought this device to replace a dedicated firewall and 24 port switch. Didn't need all that muscle at home, or so I thought...

Cons: Firmware updates have been a constant problem. Depending on the browser or OS you are running it is hit or miss regarding sucess of installation.
The fact that you cannot have multiple IP addresses in the same set of NAT rules makes it somewhat of a pain as well.
DHCP is horrible, devices that go to sleep are not re-registered properly on wakeup. I've verified with 2 different laptops(Apple and a Dell Latitude) and two different Dell printers(1700n and an all in one inkjet printer). I've used profession/business class trendnet hardware for corporate network and had nothing negative to say about them. This device however is garbage.

Other Thoughts: Please, save yourself the trouble and don't buy this product.

2 out of 5 eggsQuick failures with Trendnet Routers

Pros: Fast out of the box - excellent wireless coverage

Cons: After a few months, none of my current routers work completely: 1 has dns failures (work around: must configure each PC's dns), another is choking the 60mb internet speed down to 14mb - and it has a gigabit WANT. Chokes on wireless and wired.

Other Thoughts: Have had good experiences with Trendnet adapters; but all routers have (at least 4) have failed within a year.

3 out of 5 eggsSolid router for the money

Pros: I use this router mostly because of the gigabit ethernet ports, for the wireless I only use 802.11g since I have no 802.11n devices. I have had this router for 3 months and have had no problems with it whatsoever. The signal strength is strong throughout my house (which is a ranch) and is much improved over my old D-Link router.

Cons: No system logging for router/firewall errors.
Documentation is a little sketchy in some parts.

2 out of 5 eggsLets just say..I would never buy a trendnet again.

Pros: Not many other then easy GUI

Cons: Almost everything, antennas aren't detachable and connection really doesn't go that far and when it does it just drops out constantly. I've had so many more problems with this router that now I just went back to a Linksys G and this thing just lays on my floor.

3 out of 5 eggsOverall good but wireless connection keeps dropping

Pros: + Easy to set up
+ Wireless Speeds are good (when it works, see below)
+ Good value for money
+ Wireless on off switch (EXCELLENT!!)

Cons: - Factory installed firmware is very old and its a big hassle to update it (see below)
- The wireless connection is good but for some strange reason, after some random time (usually > 30 minutes), it will drop the connection for 5-10 seconds. This is very irritating. We've been using this for about a year now and we can confirm it keeps happening. Firmware upgrades dont help. PS3 gives connection error and Homegroup resets itself when the connection drops.

Other Thoughts: First of all the customer support guys are a joke. When I couldn't update the factor firmware (which is ancient) and called support they told me to get IE5 or an older browser. That's very difficult to do with Win7+IE8. The rep didn't have the technical expertise to help me further.

After doing some research I found out that the firmware can be update using IE8 compatibility mode (its in the developer settings menu). Its very shameful that Trendnet hires people for support who cant troubleshoot such basic issues.

Next big issue as I mentioned, is the wireless connection dropping after a random time. VERY IRRITATING!!

If you can live with the second issue, this is a great router for the money.

1 out of 5 eggsWireless Failure

Pros: The wired connectivity works well.

Cons: The wireless connectivity has intermittent dead signal periods that last 5 seconds or more, even with an excellent signal strength. I purchased two at once and both of them exhibit the same behavior. I tested with many adapters in two households over a long period of time. It may fool some reviewers because it appears to work at first. I have tried all the latest firmware patches and so far they have not fixed the problem, but they also list known bugs they have yet to fix.

Other Thoughts: It's a shame the other TrendNet router I had is no longer for sale. That one works.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks

Pros: 300mbs. Gigabit LAN ports. Great investment.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I have had this router for a while and have had no problems with it so far. I am able to successfully stream HD video to both my wireless N config. and my old wireless g laptop.
Gigabit LAN comes in handy if you ever have a friend over and want to transfer a lot of media.

5 out of 5 eggsRouter Returns

Pros: Great Range. 2.4 and 5ghz options. Good looking. wps switch on case. wireless shut off swith on case. Actual port forwarding works. dhcp client list works. static ip assignment works. You would be amazed at how may routers have firmware which is buggy. I have been in the market for 3 weeks for a replacement wireless router. In my quest for the "reliable" N router, I have purchased and returned Belkin, Netgear, D-Link and Linksys. After returning these boxes I was about to give up and I thought I'd try the "cheap" brand Trendnet. Well this unit is the best of them all. I don't need usb storage on the router so I was not interested in that feature. I wanted good reliable gig speeds and n wireless ability with backward compatibility with g/b -- this router fits the bill.

Cons: I had one big problem when I purchased this router that has been corrected. The firmware that was in this router was quite old. I downloaded the firmware from Trendnet. The newest firmware corrected quite a few problems - I am encourged when I see a vendor periodically releasing new firmware to address issues - it shows they are responsive. Upon trying to load the new firmware, it failed. I also could not make any changes int the router configuration page - the router would not respond. In calling TrendNet, I was told that the older firmware only worked with ie 6. Well with Windows 7 and ie 8 that was not an option for me. There suggestion was to find a computer with ie 6 and upgrade the firmware. I thought this was crazy. Most folks when confronted with this option would I think just return the router and cross TrendNet off their list. After being told this, I went back to the drawing board to see if I could come up with an alternative. The solution I found, cont below

Other Thoughts: was to open ie 8, click on tools, click on compatibility settins, check the box for all sites to be opened in compatibility mode and then I was able to burn the new firmware as well as change router options. I then turned the compatibility feature off, closed the browser and re-entered the router and all works great with Windows 7 and ie 8. This was the only problem. I still give this product 5 stars.

5 out of 5 eggsFast and reliable router packed with features

Pros: I am in highly congested urban environment and have several wired and wireless machines in my network. Previous generation Net-gear router worked fine in less busy places, but here I had to reboot it every day.

After lots of research I got this TRENDnet router as a replacement and so far it's been working flawlessly:

- The router has been up for two months without a single reboot.
- It delivers solid "N" mode performance as advertised.
- Older laptops with B/G-only cards are supported.
- Wired ports provide Gigabit speed.
- This router does honor LAP IP address reservations - i.e. if you tell it so, your machines will get the same known IP addresses every time via DHCP. That is important, as I found many other routers failing in this area, even though they claim to support this feature.
- Support of multiple SSIDs with different configurations is very impressive, and it does work.
- You can turn wireless function off with a physical switch on the unit

Cons: Web management interface in out-of-the-box version is somewhat clunky - it would load the page with all default settings, then would take a couple of seconds to redraw it using Javascript and re-adjust controls to match your settings. Not a showstopper, but annoying.

I went to TRENDnet web site and did firmware upgrade, after which the web interface became much smoother.

The user interface for setting up multiple SSIDs is confusing, but once you figure it out, it works well.
