Speed: With this router I get about 10.1-10.4 MB/sec downspeed and 1.03 upspeed via [...] via BOTH wan and wireless! With the cisco e3000 I would get about 8.5-9.7 MB/sec downspeed and similar upspeeds.
Set-Up: The Cisco set-up is pretty idiot proof, but the interface for advanced settings is lacking. With the Trendnet, while not as easy to set-up, it's pretty intuitive if you just follow the instruction booklet.
Range: Have yet to carry my laptop outside and really test it out, but I get "excellent" signal on my crappy lenovo x60 with Class G wireless.
Wired Printer set-up: Once you install the driver from the included CD printing to my usb-linked-to-router printer was very painless and easy. Cisco e3000 only supports wireless printers (so if you're like me and don't have a state-of-the-art wifi printer you're sol for network printing with the e3000).
LCD monitor: e3000 doesn't have one... but... on my model it kinda sucks. If I try to change any settings via the web-interface or install new devices onto the wireless network the picture on the screen scrambles. I just downloaded the newest firmware and it still has this problem. Hopefully future firmware updates fix this because otherwise, the 673GRU is phenomenal.
Network shared storage: I attached a 2gb usb jumpstick to the router (note the 673gru has 2 usb ports, e3000 only has 1) and it was easy to access via the network software. I really wish it would just appear as a removable drive under "My Computer" like a native usb port, but I'm happy with the performance.Read more ›
I initially purchased the Netgear WNDR3700. Objectively, The Netgear is a nice router too but I had to exchange 2 units of the Netgear because of an issue with the wired gigabit ports going to sleep and not waking up. Do a google search for WNDR3700 and Tivo and you'll see complaints about the Netgear. Anyway, so I had to find another dual band router after wasting 2 weeks with the Netgear. I really liked the Netgear much better than the Trendnet because it has a hackable firmware using DD-WRT but hey if the ports go to sleep and won't wake back up, you can't use it.
Setup of the Trendnet was very straight forward, nothing out of the ordinary. The best features of the router is the 3 year warranty compared to 1 year for Netgear and other companies. I did have a older Trendnet I bought from amazon 2 years ago. I was about to throw it in the trash when I looked up the warranty and it was 3 years. It was a bit of a hassle to call them up, get transferred to India, talk to 2 levels of tech support, then you email someone in the US that you talked to the 2 levels of tech support, then they RMA your device. I did have proof of purchase but they didn't even ask for it but then again, my router which was a single band N didn't come out more than 3 years ago. They sent me a brand new one within 2 weeks. So warranty support is top notch, a bit of a hassle but I did get a new machine.
If you read the reviews, this router gets good ratings for speed. The LCD screen is nice in theory but you'll never use it.Read more ›
