Pros: The AC1750 has a solid chassis, is plenum rated, allows for trunking, and supports many SSIDs.
Cons: -VLAN interface very buggy and somewhat non-functional -Guest network/ isolation features non-functional -Firmware has only been updated once in a year -Very poor user manual, minimal descriptions
Other Thoughts: I worked with D-link customer support for a couple hours, then continued troubleshooting myself for many more. The vlan interface failed to work properly even with 5 different configurations and 2 different switches. I believe the firmware isn't nearly ready for prime-time.

Cons: - Doesn't maintain connectivity - Needs frequent reset. At least once a day - Locks up devices connected to it
Other Thoughts: I purchased this device to improve overall WiFi signal coverage in my home as the main WiFi router sits in one corner on the upper floor of the house. I had read the mixed reviews but since this was offered at a low price I thought of giving it a try.
The initial set up was a breeze and I set it up with the same SSID as my router so that devices could move seamlessly without having to be reconfigured. However, that's where the fun ended.
My family members started complaining that internet wasn't working and after some initial troubleshooting I found that the culprit was this extender. The moment I switched it off, the devices - laptops, iphones, etc. got working back to normal.
This set me on a discovery mission to zoom into the problem and get it resolved as I was bent on making this work!
After a lot of adjustments both on the extender side and the router side, I continued facing the problem. Reading up on the forums on the Netgear support site, I realized that there were a ton of people who had expressed exactly the same symptoms like what I had faced and also gone through very similar troubleshooting steps and had finally given up as there's an inherent flaw in this item.
Just go to the support forum on the Netgear site and search for WN2000RPT connectivity issues. There's a ton of posts by users on this topic.
BOTTOMLINE: Buy this only if it is FREE, not otherwise! It will end up in the junk anyway.
P.S.: Newegg customer service rocks. Refund was smooth. Will always be a loyal customer...

Pros: This thing is great as an AP, has many enterprise/managed features and Gigabit for a good price. I've had it for at least 5 years now. When properly placed covers my whole 3400 sq. ft. (2 story + basement) house.
Cons: Can't connect both PoE and outlet power and expect it to switch to whatever one is available without a manual unplug. Unable to set a management VLAN ID, management traffic is just untagged. Had one of the antennas get loose a couple years ago, but it still works.
Other Thoughts: I had an issue with the channel auto-detect feature and had to turn it off, I suspect this was due to a nearby AP that our devices were picking up but the AP couldn't see. It worked fine for years prior to that. Turning on VLANs disabled SNMP, but this seems to have been fixed in a firmware update years ago that I haven't installed yet.

Pros: This has been the best access point I have ever bought. I really have nothing bad to say about it. You can configure it to have the same SSID for both 5ghz and 2.4ghz.
Cons: The problem with running the same SSID for both radio's is the devices that attach droids, tablets, apple devices, all will prefer the 2.4ghz over the 5ghz every single time. To prevent this I made the 2.4ghz radio a different SSID so that you can specify if it is device capable the frequency you want to run at.
Other Thoughts: Great Product.

We are sorry to hear that you are having an issue with the TEW-638APB. Please update the access point with the latest firmware update found on our website. After the firmware update you will need to perform a factory reset finalize the process. See if you receive a better signal by trying different channels. If you have disabled the SSID broadcast on the unit, turn it back on. For 802.11n performance please make sure you are using WPA2 AES encryption levels. Placement may also help. Try to mount it as high as possible and avoid enclosing the unit in any type of shelving. If you continue to have issues please email Adrian@trendnet.com and will have someone assist you as soon as possible. Please include your contact information and a link to this review.
