TRENDnet TEW-647GA Wireless N Gaming Adapter IEEE 802.11b/g/n Ethernet Port Up to 300Mbps Wireless Data Rates
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Worked great initially, easy to set up (for me, anyways). Slim, easily fits in my work area.

Cons: Seems to be dead after less than 2-3 months of use. Granted, I am using it to play MMOs on my desktop (currently don't have a way to run an ethernet cable to my modem, as it's quite far away), but I expected more.

Other Thoughts: I originally had ordered the TEW-684UB USB adapter, but that didn't work very well as it kept causing issues with my USB ports (whenever I tried to load a game + Skype/streaming videos, it would cause all USB ports to be undetectable. Tried resolving, no luck), so my boyfriend ended up ordering this one (TEW-647GA) for me. It worked great initially, but within the last few weeks has been having connectivity issues off and on. Today I can't even log into the device to reconfigure it, resetting with a paperclip seems to do nothing, and my computer can't connect to or ping the default address for the adapter (I never changed this), even though there's nothing wrong with my computer and the LEDs on the adapter are trying to tell me that everything is fine with it as well.

Frustrating beyond belief. I should have just gone with a wireless card to begin with. >_> Not looking at TrendNet anymore.. first impressions aren't worth much if the quality declines so quickly.
