First off, I had been keeping my eye out for a cheap alternative to the 360's wireless adapter for sometime now, and when I saw this unit as apart of Amazon's lightning deals for $30 I couldn't pass that up.

Before buying this unit, I was sure to peruse for reviews to see other peoples' luck with the item and was left a bit confused on how the product would perform. After playing around with the various settings and getting it to work, I want to just clear the confusion on how this will perform. Also, I have a Bachelors in Computer Networking, not that that means anything, but I have had a good bit of experience playing around with different routers/switches and while reading through the reviews I was left baffled by the varying contradicting opinions of the product.***On a side-note, these types of At Home networking devices are aimed at ease-of-use and my experience had very little effect on how much more/less difficulty I had getting the product to work other than enabling me to filter out the weaker/inane reviews of the product.

Let me clear up the marketing confusion first. This item is a Wireless adapter. IT WILL ALLOW YOU TO CONNECT VARIOUS ITEMS WITH AN ETHERNET JACK TO YOUR WIRELESS NETWORK. That means if you have a desktop with an ethernet jack in the back that you would like to be able to hook up to your WIFI without stringing it to your router, this will work. For the "gamer's" that for some reason this item is targeting(most likely the xbox 360 owners), this item works flawlessly and comes strongly suggested given a few caveats(i.e a bit more cumbersome than Microsoft's options

Like the review by R. Neal, I had some issues getting the 647GA running at N speeds. Not content to just dump it and get the Microsoft product, I did some trial and error to figure out if I could remedy the problems. Through a decent amount of troubleshooting I was able to get it running at 240-270mpbs compared to the 30-80mbps that it started out with. This involves changing a lot of settings on the 647GA and your wireless router which may interfere with some of your existing wireless devices. I have 5 802.11G and 3 802.11N devices and none of the changes I made affected them, but if you have older equipment you may have problems. By proxy by making these changes all of my wireless gear is now running faster. Hopefully these steps will help you as they did me! Also I am assuming that you have a 802.11N router.

Now, forget the WPS configuration. For my unit, it resulted in low speeds and I wasn't able to get into the configuration settings via the web interface. If you have connected using this option, locate the reset button on the bottom of the unit and hold it down for appox. 30 seconds. Now connect the 647GA to your computer via the LAN cable and then power it up. Insert the setup CD, open it and click Setup Wizard. Agree to the License Agreement and follow the instructions. Once the software finds the unit click 647GA and click Configure. Leave the password blank and click Login. Set the password (if needed) and click Change. Click the radio button next to Manual Setup and click Next. Click Dynamic IP Address Configuration and click Configure. Click Site Survey and select your wireless network, then click Select. When the window closes click Next. Enter your wireless network key and click Next. Apply the settings. Once this is done, disconnect the 647GA from your computer.

Verified Purchase
I purchased this for one reason, it was an "N" band adapter that could be used on the XBox 360 and was less expensive than the Microsoft "N" adapter. I was, oh, so looking that the Trendnet adapter would work well given it's price point. I wanted "N" band as I'm looking to use my XBox to stream music and videos in addition to playing games. If that's your goal skip this adapter and get the Microsoft N adapter, sure you'll spend a few more dollars but, as they say, you get what you pay for.

I have now been able to do side-by-side comparison on these two and can provide a summary of my experience. For full disclosure I'm using D-Link DIR-655 router with my set-up.

First, the good on this adapter:

- It will work on the XBox 360 (note comments below on performance, or lack thereof)
- It looks good with status lights to show connectivity
- It costs less than Microsoft's "N" band adapter

However, let's look at the not so good aspects of this adapter:

- Your connection rate will be MUCH less than if you used the Microsoft N adapter. With the Trendnet adapter my connection speed (as measured by the XBox network test) was just barely passable for TV. With the Microsoft's adapter I registered a full connection on the graph, now suitable for TV as well as HDTV! I also used my router's administrative status to get the actual hard reading, a 70-90 rate for Trendnet, 220-240 for Microsoft's adapter, that's a HUGE difference.

- You may need to make some changes to your router, I did. I had my router set for AES "Cipher Type", by default the Trendnet required "TKIP".
