TRENDnet TPL-303E Powerline Network Adapter Up to 200Mbps
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs These worked well for about 3 years 01/28/2016

This review is from: TRENDnet TPL-303E Powerline Network Adapter Up to 200Mbps

Pros: Got around 50Mbps most of the time--enough to stream 720p across my network just fine.

Cons: After about 3 years of use, had to decommission these because Comcast/Xfinity said these were leaking into the cable network. They tore my whole house apart and finally figured out it was one of these guys.

Pros: Easy to set up. Relatively cheap. Good antenna range.

Cons: After a couple days of use, it drops internet. I narrowed this down to the router--my other equipment hasn't changed. Rebooting the router fixes it. The model I received is a V2 of this router. It is not compatible with DD-WRT. I was very disappointed to see that Rosewill made this change in the firmware. Based on the fact it drops internet frequently, I decided to return this as I consider it defective.

Other Thoughts: My old model was fried in a lightning strike. Before that, I had been using it for years with DD-WRT and had no problems with it. I was hopeful to replace it, but it didn't work out. I ended up finding an old Linksys router at a thrift store and put DD-WRT on that.

Pros: This modem worked like a champ for over 6 years. Even though my cable company never recognized it, I didn't have problems with it. I replaced it with a DOCSIS 3.0 modem, but only because I wanted faster speeds.

Cons: Because it was so small and light, it was pulled sideways by the weight of the cables plugged into it. Pretty minor, though.
