If you are at least a casual gamer and you already have a network, like we do, make the investment into this router. Yes, i know, it's a little on the expensive side, but it works great for me. As soon as I connected my xbox, I had full bars, better than even a direct connect on my 350 Mbps router. I could have my xbox, pc, laptop, & iPhone connected either directly or via WiFi, and I would still get no lag when I played on-line games or watched videos.

Only one minor downside, you can't have more than one console running an extensive on-line game, like Left 4 Dead 2 or Modern Warfare 2. It has disconnected me twice when I tried. those games just hog up too much bandwidth.

Overall, this is the best investment I have ever made in regards to my computing/gaming needs. I highly recommend it.

I thought I had a fast internet connection at around 13 to 15 Mbps in a normal day until I connected with this router and noticed an increase of almost 100% in the connection speed! When I saw that 25 to 26 Mbps in the speed test I was ecstatic to say the least. I'm getting these speeds using an OLD D-Link cable modem that is rated at 38Mbps...I can't imagine how my speeds are going to be when I get the new Motorola Cable Modem with DOCSIS 3.0 that I just purchased which is rated at 160Mbps!

Keep in mind, like I hinted on my previous line, the wireless router by itself will NOT give you the SUPER speeds. You need 4 things working perfectly together: A fast Internet Service, a fast modem, a fast router and a fast card on your computer; and by fast I mean that they need to be capable of handling these new technologies and be rated at the speeds that you want or are able to achieve. If you get those 4 together correctly in this day and age, you are looking EASILY at a connection speed of AT LEAST 50 to 60 Mbps...which is CRAZY FAST!

The only piece missing for me is the fast cable modem and it is on its way to me. As for this router, it has VERY NICE features like EXTREMELY EASY TO INSTALL: I basically connected mine following the instructions and I was connected already without even changing any settings. I went from box to working in around 30 minutes. It only works on the 2.4 GHz band (no 5 GHz support), has extremely good range, offers the best available network security features so nobody steals your internet signal, and the best for me: THREE YEARS WARRANTY! Can't beat that! You can have peace of mind knowing that you have three years to fly through the internet until you go numb and, if anything happens, your router will still have warranty!

For this price (I purchased it on the Black Friday Weekend for an absurd low price) it is a STEAL! Highly RECOMMENDED!

I have had a wireless network in my home for years now, so my D-Link 300Mbps N Router finally died after years of abuse. My first ever TRENDnet purchase was the TRENDnet Wireless N Gaming Adapter to use with a non-WiFi bluray player and was pleased with the quality and function-ability of it. Since I was so pleased with it, I decided to purchase a wireless router by TRENDnet. Am I ever happy I made this decision! First of all, the price for a 450 Mbps WiFi Router for less two-hundred dollars is a steal currently. At first I thought I was doing something wrong since it was so easy to program. It pretty much does everything on it's own. If you are worried you will not be able to get this set-up, don't fuss because this by far is the easiest router I have ever installed.

I have a large family so we have (3)PSP, (2)Wii, (1)XBox, (2)network bluray players, (3)laptops, (2)iPod Touch, iPad, (1)iMac, and finally (2)desktop computers using this router throughout my home. The signal is strong and stays constant. I previously had a signal booster antenna with my previous router but with the TRENDnet TEW-691GR the signal is so strong that I no longer needed the extra antenna.

This purchase was a upgrade for my Linksys WRT54G. I have a fiber connection & rarely had a problem with my Linksys but I was looking for a router that could handle streaming video a little better & this router caught my eye. Out of the box this router was very disappointing, it was constantly dropping a wired connection. I was aware of reviews cautioning against this router for that very reason so I wasn't completely surprised but very disappointed. I checked all the basics & even fired up the old linksys, I came to the conclusion that it was definitely the new router that was the problem. I went to TRENDnet's website & noticed there was a firmware update perhaps a glimmer of hope. I actually filled out a Helpdesk technical support form & got the the response fairly quickly. The response instructed me to go ahead & update the Firmware then do a master reset on the router, kinda what I figured. So I went ahead with the Firmware update & performed a master reset. One word of advice on the Firmware update the folder that you download from TRENDnet contains a BIN file which is the actual file you need for the update. I directed the router to browse the downloaded folder which contained the BIN file & it failed to find it, I have done this many times with Windows with no problems never had to direct it to the actual file but the folder that contains it. I say this because the Firmware update stopped when it didn't find the file & that's not good,fortunately I was able to recover & successfully update the Firmware. Since the update & master reset the router has been rock solid. I do notice my wired connection seems to be quicker. My wireless connection to a laptop travels from the second floor to the first floor & through one wall. The wireless connection since the update has been rock solid. One other note the people complaining about dropped connections I wonder how many updated there Firmware, Just a thought.
