1 out of 5 eggsCan't use a PC as a Server

Pros: Perfect little wireless & wired Router

Cons: Unable to Port a PC to the internet,, trying to have a home server for other friends n family on net. Even in DMZ the pc can't be recognized. Played with all kinds of settings in FILTERS, VIRTUAL SERVER, DMZ & FIREWALL RULES.
Nothings works. Read in a previous review another customer had same issue

Other Thoughts: Probably a defective router as for port forwarding or opening to net as a server. Least it's in the 3 Year Warrenty

1 out of 5 eggsKeep Shopping

Pros: The price is right, but you get what you pay for. At first it was good, not great but good. Sleek.

Cons: Signal weak barely gets a signal across my home. Has some kind of built in firewall, that disrupts my satellite signal. Upgrade more troubling than helpful. When it was working needed to be reset at least once daily. I upgraded from an older different brand router, thought I was getting a better one but I was mistaken. Very sad I can keep a reliable signal.

Other Thoughts: I had a TrendNet switch I really like thats why I tried their router, very disappointed. I've given it many chance and have upgraded the firmware, I've had it for 2 years and I'm about to have to buy a new one due to its inconsistencies.

1 out of 5 eggsNo good.

Pros: Low cost, great wireless coverage, fast when it was working

Cons: Drops signal, hard to login to router

Other Thoughts: I have owned this router for about 4 months. One day it stopped working all together. I had my ISP come over to try and configure it to get service from my modem and I had TRENDnet customer support assist me. My ISP said everything is fine on my modem and showed me. However, TRENDnet tech support had no clue what was going on and the Rep said she would have her supervisor give me a call back in an hour to an hour and a half later. I never received a call back that day, and here it is a week later and I still haven't received word from anyone. If you need support from TRENDnet good luck getting it.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat value

Pros: Great value. I've had this router for about two months and the speed was always great. Absolutely no problems so far. Very easy to setup. My Linux desktop, my Chromebook and my Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 all had no problem connecting to the wireless network.

Cons: None in general. Easy setup if you follow the instructions but there is no security for wireless by default. You must make sure you go beyond the instructions and actually secure the wireless network.

2 out of 5 eggsIt's ok

Pros: Cheap
Decent range

Cons: Needs resetting daily

Other Thoughts: I bought this to replace an old linksys wireless G router, it worked great for the first couple weeks, but now it needs resetting every day. It will drop internet on my wireless devices as well as my PC that's wired to it once a day or so.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi BDEP,
I can understand your overall frustration for the connection drops. I am curious if bandwidth is occupied by bandwidth hungry applications when internet drops. If possible, please use speedtest.net to verify your network bandwidth from time to time. As far as wired or wireless connection performance from each station, the task manager can help to understand that. Also, have you downloaded to the latest firmware? Here’s is the link for your reference: http://www.trendnet.com/support/supportdetail.asp?prod=230_TEW-731BR if this doesn’t help then don’t hesitate to contact me at adrian@trendnet.com with ”Newegg TEW-731BR Review” in the subject line and I will respond immediately. Thank you for taking the time to review our product and I look forward to hearing from you to regain your trust in TRENDnet.

Kindest Regards,
Adrian

2 out of 5 eggsdied after about a year

Pros: this router worked great when it did work.. had a couple compatibility issues with wpa but there are ways around that.

Cons: it all started when i went to download a file from the internet, it kept jumping in and out of signal every 5 seconds. thats when i knew it was time to get a new one..wish i got the warranty on it.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi Andy,

5 out of 5 eggsGood Range For The Price

Pros: * Range is good for a cheap router, the signal is strong and stable enough for streaming HD Instant videos at: about 40ft from the router through 2 Brick walls and a wood one with a decent USB Wifi adapter, 35ft through 1 brick wall and a wood one with my laptop's built-in wifi, and 25ft through 1 brick wall and a wood one with my tablet. The range is about double that when going though just one wood wall. Please note that the HD videos were from an online service, so they were compressed. Therefore they required considerably less throughput then Blueray level HD videos would.
* Range and performance is similar to the TP-LINK TL-WDR3600 router which costs over twice as much, but the TL-WDR3600 has allot more extra features.

Cons: *Does not have a 5GHz band, a 5GHz band is almost useless anyway as the range is less and very few devices use 5GHz.
*Does not have a built in USB server
*Does not have parental control

Other Thoughts: I have owned this router for about 6 months and I haven't had any problems with it, but I would like a longer range and a USB server so I tried getting a TP-LINK TL-WDR3600 router as an upgrade from this one, but its performance and range was the same, except that my tablet got worse reception, so I sent it back and just kept using this router for now. If I find a better affordable router I will add it to my review.

1 out of 5 eggsCount it as junk...no second chances here

Pros: Seemed to be easy to set up...but so what...doesn't perform well at all...and even basics are wrong and bad.

Cons: Summary- I've learned that when a company can't even do basics right...it's far easier on me to just throw it away and start over. Why give junk a second chance? Not worth it.

Set up seemed easy...but when I went to configure a password account could not log into their site using their instructions.

Strike 1...if they can't even keep up a simple thing like that what does that mean for anything else?

Strike 2...signal strength 5 bars..but so sloooowww.
Testing out neighbors signal at two bars was still far faster than this one..

No second chances from me...not angry..just annoyed
