TRENDnet TEW-731BR N300 Wireless Home Router
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Good Range For The Price 08/31/2013

This review is from: TRENDnet TEW-731BR N300 Wireless Home Router

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.

TP-LINK TL-WDR3600 Dual Band Wireless N600 Router, Gigabit, 2.4GHz 300Mbps+5GHz 300Mbps, 2 USB port, IP QoS, Wireless On/Off Switch
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: *Has lots of features
*2 USB ports that can be used for HDs, Printers, or scanners
*Easy to setup
*Works well with Exede satilite internet

Cons: *Wifi range on the 2.4GHz band is only moderate, about the same as my old router, a TRENDnet TEW-731BR which costs less then half as much as this router.

Other Thoughts: The performance and range of the router was almost the same as my old TRENDnet TEW-731BR, which costs less then half as much, so if you do not need the(almost useless 5Ghz band, the USB server and parental controls you might as well get the cheaper TRENDnet TEW-731BR.
