TRENDnet Wireless AC Easy-Upgrader TEW-820AP
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

3 out of 5 eggs Too hard to configure or access 06/30/2015

This review is from: TRENDnet Wireless AC Easy-Upgrader TEW-820AP

Pros: 5ghz band
compact

Cons: Doesn't provide DHCP, must attach to DHCP server
Instructions wrong
Doesn't connect on 192.168.10.100
Setup wizard can't login (login fail all the time)

Other Thoughts: In the instructions it says the address is 192.168.10.100, but it doesn't respond at that address. You need to plug it into a network with DHCP and find the address it gets assigned.

The setup wizard will find it, but cannot login - you will always get "login failed".

When you find it on the network, you will get to a first time config. You can set it to client and if the network is up it will connect to the AP, and if you have another way to access it (a computer direct to the same AP), you can access them.

Out of the box it is in some kind of zombie mode, neither client nor AP - it won't serve DHCP over wifi or ethernet, but will request an IP over ethernet.

It seems to do better after it is out of this zombie mode into client or AP, but getting it there is painful

For config-once, leave for a year, probably not so bad. For use as a portable, it will be a pain, particularly if you leave it in client mode so there is no AP to set it - probably will need a factory reset.
