4 out of 5 eggsA decent low end router

Pros: First impressions: The box and packaging are run of the mill and nothing special. The unit is however protected well. Included are the router, power brick and a 5 foot gray Ethernet cable. The brick is generic and nowhere on it does it say Trendnet so good luck matching it up if you misplace it. There is also a quick installation guide in 5 languages and a CD with another Quick Installation Guide and a User’s Guide in PDF format and a Product Registration. Hold on to this CD because you’ll need it later or at least I did. Certainly not feature rich but this is a bargain basement unit.
The TEW-813DRU itself is black matte plastic textured on the sides to look like metal. First impression is small and light, no bigger than a thick paperback book. There are four small feet on the bottom and the unit wants to topple over once any cables are attached. There are no visible antennas. This is one of those form over function units that are made more to be attractive then to perform. There are the required LEDs down the front and on the back are 4 gigabit Ethernet ports, an Internet port for your broadband modem and a USB port. There is also a power switch and the power connection from the wall wart and a ubiquitous WPS security button. On one side is a label with the preset wireless settings you need to set up the router. It’s on top of one of the sheets of protective film so don’t peel it off and discard it by mistake.
I hooked up the TEW-813DRU to my cable modem and turned it on. According to the quick install guide all I needed to do was open the browser on one of my wired computers and the setup page would appear, which it didn’t. However the PDF guide has a couple of hyperlinks to the setup page that you only need to click on. From there basic setup is easy but don’t lose that sticker with the passwords on it. In mere minutes I had my wired network and my wireless networks back and was surfing the Internet and streaming video like mad. Setup was relatively easy but not as easy as the quick setup guide implied.
The firmware is certainly adequate, offering 2 guest networks, a firewall that includes DMZ, Virtual Server and lets you set plenty of Gaming rules. As I’ve said plenty of times, I’m not a network guru and I tend to just hook up a wireless router, set the security and let it rip. But it’s nice to know there are lots of options to explore on the TEW-813DRU.

Cons: Now a little about my everyday network setup. My normal wireless router is an ASUS RT-AC66R Dual Band AC router. It’s several steps above the TEW-813DRU so I’m not really putting the Trendnet unit up against it but it is the only unit I have for comparison. The ASUS router sits in the computer room at one end of my single story house. I keep a Lenovo Y410P laptop running a Haswell i7 and Windows 10 in the living room and perhaps 30 feet distant through 1 open door. The laptop has a whitelisted Intel N7260 adaptor which is not great or even particularly good in my opinion but it does work. And the distance from my ASUS router means it does everything I want it to without problem.
I have a second Lenovo laptop, a U310 ultrabook that I keep on my bedside table for surfing the Internet and streaming video from my primary workstation. It has a bottom of the barrel Intel N-2200 wireless N, M-SATA card that is also whitelisted so I can’t replace it with a better unit. It has 8 gigs of memory and a decent Ivy Bridge core i5 processor and runs Windows 7 X64. It sits perhaps 80 feet from the router at the far end of my single story house. There are two doors in the way and I will say that Internet surfing and streaming are excellent with the ASUS router even if I close both doors.
Since both my laptops use N wireless cards I used a Trendnet Tew-805ub AC USB 3 adaptor. It works on the 5g band and has an advertised speed of 867 MB/s. Plugged into the USB 3 port of my Y410P I saw an average speed of 340 MB/s. This is somewhat slower than the 400 MB/s speed I get with the ASUS router. Copying a 1.5 Gig video file from my wired workstation to the Y410P laptop yielded approximately a 15 MB/s transfer speed which again is slower than the ASUS’s 20 MB/s. This amounts to a few minutes extra copying time but then again the TEW-813DRU is a much less expensive unit so slower times are to be expected, especially since the all important antennas are internal.
The performance dropped when I hooked up the Trendnet USB 3 adaptor to my U310 laptop at the far end of my house. The network speed dropped to 290 MB/s and the transfer speed for the 1.5 Gig video file dropped to 4.1 MB/s. This is less than half the 9.7 MB/s speed I get with my ASUS router. Strangely enough the speeds using the built in N wireless adaptor were just about the same.
I did some USB copying tests using a Seagate 1 Terabyte Backup Plus USB 3 drive hooked up to the USB 2 port on the TEW-813DRU. I used FTP Server as it and Samba were the only offerings. I copied a mixed bag of files coming out to 2.67 Gigs first to one of my wired systems then to the Lenovo U310 ultrabook. The wired connection took 9 long minutes and the wireless transfer a glacial 15 minutes. Obviously this is best used for small file transfers and streaming small video or MP3 files. Plus if you hook up a drive to the router it runs constantly so the lifespan will be negatively impacted.

Other Thoughts: Considering this is a budget unit, performance wasn’t too bad. Face it, someone needing big transfer speeds isn’t going to consider the TEW-813DRU. This is a casual user rig and as such will probably be called on for basic web surfing and streaming music and light video use. For that it worked admirably. I surfed the web, streamed videos and downloaded some large Torrents without problem or complaint. The Trendnet router did choke on my H264 copy of Timescapes and stuttered too badly to make it watchable. Wireless performance fell off badly with distance so consider that if you have a large house or lots of walls. All in all this is decent performance performance for a small cash outlay.
An entry level unit that offers tepid performance but is easy on the wallet. A good first router for someone wanting to upgrade from N wireless to AC but doesn’t want to sink a couple of hundred dollars into a wireless router. Setup is easy enough for a newbie but the firmware offers plenty of advanced options to play with. Everybody has to learn the basics somewhere. A thumbs up as long as you don’t expect top of the line performance.

5 out of 5 eggsTEW-813DRU

Pros: The Trendnet AC1200 is a good router for $90. As with most Trendnet wireless routers they are well made. Some of the features include; Gigabit wired ports. WPS, USB, WPA2 encryption, guest network. It comes pre setup so set up is easy. A sticker on the bottom provides the password and SIDD. The hardware in the box is a Realtek RTL8197D CPU, 128 Mib And the Realtek RTL8812AR + RTL819CE Wifi chipsets. The set up was easy and performance impressive. The web access is easy to navigate and responsive. The price is amazing for a AC router. Wireless AC speeds were good. 310mbps@10ft, 124mbps@ 60ft. I have a 100Mb internet line and this handled it just fine. download speeds were just as fast as my connection so no problem there. I have been using this for three weeks now without a single drop or issue. Heavy traffic.

Cons: No external antenna, The USB port is 2.0

Other Thoughts: If you're looking for a new AC router at a sub $100 price tag then this is the BEST sub $100 router to get. It's no nighthawk router but it's not bad ether. Trendnet is really good and budget routers and the same time as maintaining A quality signal

3 out of 5 eggsIts OK for a AC router

Pros: Setup was easy enough, decent speed on both bands.
form factor OK.

Cons: 5Ghz band is rather weak in range but typical of the band.
Interface is sketchy, I tried changing time zone and setting for Daylight savings and would not save settings. Using latest updates.

Other Thoughts: This is a OK wireless router but it has its bugs with firmware and I don't like how it cannot check for firmware updates. Also the 5Ghz is weak and drops off quickly.
For the price its good but its not the best AC router out there.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Router

Pros: Unboxing and setup are very easy. I actually followed the instructions for this one. It said to power down my modem and hook it up then turn it on. Worked like a charm. The 5Ghz is nice for my phones. Wired connections came back immediately. Overall a great router.

Cons: The power cord should say Trendnet on it

Other Thoughts: The choices of basic and advanced admin pages are very nice. Lots of choices for customisation.

5 out of 5 eggsTRENDnet Wireless AC1200 Dual Band Gigibit Router

Pros: Dual band ac1200, USB port.
Has 2 guest networks for 2.4GHz and 5GHZ and different security for both.
On the normal 2.4GHz and 5GHZ with different security for both you can also change the names of each network.
No antennas on the outside for a sleek look but the signal for wireless is stronger than routers with external antennas.
Very easy setup, You can change password to router from default that is listed on router.
You can extend wireless signal with another router easy using the online pdf instructions.

Cons: Full instructions don't come with it just the setup instructions. BUT you can go to TRENDnet's website and find them easy enough and download to computer as you will need the to do any major or minor tweaking. As most products you buy now a days you have to do this but I had to mention it. Not a big con bot I like full instruction's.

Other Thoughts: First I advise going to TRENDnets website to download the full pdf instruction sheet for this router if you want to make tweaks for it. I actually was able to change channels so I can get on a different channel than other networks around me. That helped the signal length for me. On speed testing I was able to get 10Mbps faster on download and 2Mbps faster on upload on the wireless speed over my old Buffalo router with 2 external antennas. Also the wife couldn't get a signal outside on the patio in the back of the house as the router is clear in the front room. Now she can get two bars on the patio. I like the parental controls and they were easy to set up. The guest networks we also easy to setup once I downloaded the full instructions from the website.
I haven't been able to find the information on how to use the targeted beamforming so I have sent an email in to trendnet for instructions.. The USB port is a lifesaver for me as I have multiple laptops and desktops and I use the USB to transfer files and programs between them all without have to carry the USB device to each computer I just plug it into router and then I am able to connect to it with each computer. I rated this a five because of the price and the strength of the wireless signal and wired strength, compared to my 6 moth old buffalo that is also an ac dual band router with external antennas but is weaker than this and cost more. I think TRENDnet made a great product here and the cost is just right.

5 out of 5 eggsSo far it is a five star item

Pros: This is an Eggxpert review.
This is my first day impression.
My hook-uo is modum > hard wired router > 16 port switch>five port switch>this router > wire less connection to a mac mini in an adjacent room. No drop outs in 3 hours of testing.

Cons: None for this review as my major problem with wifi is the fact that I live less then 15 miles from 2 military airbases.

When the military starts field testing planes and blimps every wif fi device I have ever owned has constant drop outs. So This review has yet to show this.

Once I listen too and see tsting from the military I can do a second review.

Other Thoughts: I am hoping this device is more resitant to dropouts that have plague me for so long that I just don't run wif fi.

I will come back with a new review and mention if I get this problem

Did you find this review helpful? Yes No

5 out of 5 eggsGood Router

Pros: Delivered quick by newegg as usual.
Neatly boxed and packaged.
Super easy set up.
Dual channel.

Cons: No stand, but not a big deal as it stands on it's own OK
Power cord could be longer.

Other Thoughts: This router is easy to use. I plugged it into my switch in the back bedroom which runs off the gateway router in the front room, typed in the wireless password, and bam, connected to my Windows 7 laptop and my Samsung Android tablet at the same time. No need to run the disk that came with it. Netflix runs smooth on all devices, even at the far end of the house. I get a solid 5 bar signal where ever I roam in the house, this seems like a good wireless router thus far.

3 out of 5 eggsDecent router

Pros: works

Cons: distance. 5g

Manufacturer Response:


Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback. To take advantage of the 802.11ac standard please ensure your devices have comparable 802.11ac adapters. Placement and channel selection may also help with wireless coverage. Try to centrally locate the router as high as possible and avoid enclosing it in any type of shelving. You can change the channel on the Wireless > Basic page in the router’s configuration page. If would like assistance with the settings please email and we will have someone help you as soon as possible. Please include a link to this review.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Easy setup. Long range reception. I have multiple pc's, my tv and dvd player as well as mobile fones all connected to my router. Big improvement over my old N router which I had been very happy with for several years. As I seem to be broadcasting a strong signal to neighbors its important to have the wifi signal secured. No weak signal anywhere in my house or on my propery.

Cons: None that come to mind.
