Product Description

The 300Mbps Concurrent Dual Band Wireless N Gigabit Router delivers unsurpassed Dual Band wireless speed, coverage, and reliability with up to 14x the speed and 6x the coverage of a wireless g connection. Concurrent Dual Band technology creates two separate 300Mbps wireless n networks at the same time—one on the 2.4GHz frequency and the other on the less congested 5GHz frequency. A color LCD management interface provides real time performance, security, and device information thereby reducing the need to login to the router. Share content by connecting USB flash drives, hard drives, or printers directly to two USB ports on the back of the router. Gigabit Ethernet ports offer exceptional wired throughput performance. Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) antenna technology reduces wireless dead spots, advanced wireless encryption protects your digital content, and WMM® Quality of Service (QoS) technology prioritizes gaming, Internet calls, and video streams. Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) connects WPS compliant computers at the touch of a button. Wirelessly stream HD multimedia using the uncongested 5GHz frequency while surfing the Internet using the 2.4GHz frequency

I get suddenlink 10 MB down/sec:1 MB up/sec cable internet service

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.

Verified Purchase
I received the router a few days ago. Got it all hooked up. The display isn't anything all that fancy and it in fact is more or less useless as the button response is not great and takes a while to get to the info you need, you can just use the web config interface. It looks high tech anyhow. I bought this to get more throughput than my prior D-Link DIR-655, also I think the D-Link was the culprit to frequent disconnects during online gaming. For the time it worked, it did seem to be almost double the speed. The web interface take some getting used to, I had all my devices on my network plugged in but the DHCP table didn't recognize them (though they had connectivity). I prefer to set static ip reservations for my devices, however given they were not showing up in the table, I had to hook only one device up at a time for it to show up with an IP and MAC and then reserve it. Also, though I'm sure it's for good measure... it takes a whopping 2 minutes just for the slightest change to be made to the router which was painstaking when configuring 10 static reservations. What was the worst was the fact that it got bricked after I attempted to flash to the latest firmware (from rev 24 to rev 36 I think). I made sure I had the right firmware and followed instructions but after the 2 minute counter, nothing happened on the web config page though it said "Succes..." Waited up to 10 minutes to make sure, checked router and it will not boot up past the splash/logo now. Customer service is of course script readers from India and quite impatient with users... I'm very tech savvy and had already done most everything he stated, seemed pretty eager to get me off the phone and he may have hung up on me at one point as the "call dropped". Basically, I didn't much care for their tech support across the world. I will see how the replacement from Amazon fairs. I may forego firmware updates for fear of another brick, and likely will not be calling tech support back.

So I decided to upgrade my wireless router to a dual band, I moved into a new condo and everybody had a wireless router and I knew it would be trouble. I checked and nobody was using the 5GHz spectrum so I knew it was the way to go.

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.
