3 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: TRENDnet TEW-751DR N600 Dual Band Wireless Router IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n, IEEE 802.3/3u

Pros: Exactly as advertised. Received in 2 days, small, easy to find spot for in already crowded corner with the rest of electronics. I've had no issues with device as of yet

Cons: Set-up instructions are a little vague, but computer did most of work. Did have to uninstall and reinstall internet adapter in laptop to find router. Customer support is all in tickets, so no right away help from what I could see. Only reasons for 2 stars was for setup stuff. Since we've got it running, been doing amazing for what it is!!

1 out of 5 eggsDisappointment

This review is from: TRENDnet TEW-751DR N600 Dual Band Wireless Router IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n, IEEE 802.3/3u

Pros: None

Cons: Dropping wi-fi and internet connection every 10-15 minutes. Interruptions in internet connection makes it unusable. I updated firmware. It did work well for first 30 minutes. Later started dropping connection.I am sending it back.

Other Thoughts: Now I know why it is so cheap.

5 out of 5 eggsAbsolute "steal" for access point.

This review is from: TRENDnet TEW-751DR N600 Dual Band Wireless Router IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n, IEEE 802.3/3u

Pros: I use the router as an access point. For only $10 is was a "steal". My main router (Netgear 3500l $80) is on the first floor. I put this unit on the 2nd floor and increased my 2nd floor signal strength by 10-15 db.

Cons: no QOS, but since I only use it as an access point it is not missed. My main router has QOS.

Other Thoughts: I love Trendnet products. I now have 3 switches, network camera, and now this router. Never had a problem with any. Oh, and I love the low power "green" designs.

5 out of 5 eggsGOOD VALUE

This review is from: TRENDnet TEW-751DR N600 Dual Band Wireless Router IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n, IEEE 802.3/3u

Pros: Good Price for a N600 Dual Band Router, Good Brand Name.. Although it's not IEEE 802.11ac compatible it is really fast enough for almost anything.. Think of it this way if your Internet Connection is under 60Mbps. Your connection won't be any Faster with a faster more expensive Router , since a faster Router is limited by your internet connection speed anyway....

Cons: No, Con's Good Value and Performer for the price..

1 out of 5 eggsHorrible product

This review is from: TRENDnet TEW-751DR N600 Dual Band Wireless Router IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n, IEEE 802.3/3u

Pros: NONE

Cons: Bought this last week with a discount for 10 bucks, intended to be a backup router. Shipped very fast and arrived in perfect shape. Opened the box and followed exactly per the instruction, and never able to finish the setup with their website. Tried for 3 hours and finally gave up and just threw the garbage into the trash. Do not buy, you will regret it.

1 out of 5 eggsCan't accept wireless connection.

This review is from: TRENDnet TEW-751DR N600 Dual Band Wireless Router IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n, IEEE 802.3/3u

Pros: I have followed the setup procedure to set up this TEW-751DR Router. I can use the internet when I connect a wire directly from TEW-751R to my computer. However, when I try to connect my computer to the wireless signal from TEW-751DR Router to use the internet, all of my computer can't use the network. The network appears Limited Access (I have tried to reset my router, but it doesn't work). I have tried to setup my TEW-751DR Router by wireless, but I can't connect to 192.168.10.1 during wireless connection.

2 out of 5 eggsDidn't last long

This review is from: TRENDnet TEW-751DR N600 Dual Band Wireless Router IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n, IEEE 802.3/3u

Pros: Has lots of features, more than I was looking for. Set up was easy, had encrypted networks pre-installed, dual bands, guest networks. Speed and range were good in my small house. And I got it at a great discount. At first I had no problems, and I was happy with it until...

Cons: After 5 months of light to average use, the wireless range dropped by half on the 2.4 GHz band and to almost nothing on the 5 GHz band . I discovered that the router was pretty hot when I touched it, much warmer than it had previously been, and was giving off a burning smell. When powered off, it cooled down fast, but when turned on it got hot again quickly, in 10 or 15 minutes. The wireless signals were okay when the router was cool but degraded fast as it heated up.

The user's guide has no mention of overheating. I looked for this problem online and found some basic steps to take, but they didn't really help. Some advice I did follow was to deactivate both wireless bands, which lessened the problem--the router was still too warm, but ate least I wasn't scared it would burst into flames. Then I went to TRENDnet's website and filled out a help desk ticket.

The answer came back in a day, but it wasn't too helpful. The answer I got involved pretty generic steps--update the firmware (which I hadn't done yet because their website specifically says NOT to do this unless the release notes mention your problem, which they didn't); reset the router to default configuration; and set up the network from scratch. It also listed some ways to improve wireless reception, which were copied straight out of the user guide and weren't relevant to my situation. There was nothing specifically mentioned about the overheating issue.

I did try the steps they sent me, more than once in fact, but it didn't help at all. I still can't turn on the wireless bands because the router gets so hot; even with them off, I turn the power off once or twice a day and overnight to give it a chance to cool off.

Other Thoughts: I'm very disappointed with this router--5 months of not-heavy use shouldn't result in this problem. And I definitely think TRENDnet's customer support could be better. Their answer didn't seem to address the problem. (If the firmware update was supposed to help with that, they should come out and say so.) Also, there seems to be no way to continue communication with the help desk without filling out a new help ticket and starting from scratch.

The router has a 3-year warranty, with1 year coverage for the power supply and adapter and the cooling fan. So it's still covered, but I would have to pay to ship it to them and for insurance, and at the price I paid it doesn't seem worth it. And I'd have to wait for them to fix it or send a replacement (possibly someone else's reconditioned unit), which means I'd have to get another router anyway. Makes these warranties pretty useless.

All in all, I doubt I'd buy another TRENDnet product.
