This bridge is very picky on how you place it. You want to face it with the side facing where the router is... Which if you looking at it strait on, it should be the left hand side. Which would be the top of the board where the antenna are located. This will boost your signal levels a good bit.

Just for the record this bridge is paired with DIR-825 router. Which will be upgraded soon to the E4200V2. Then I can test the 3 stream tech and see if signal level's improve. All testing was done on the 5GHz band, with the router being in the basement with antenna horizontal and the brige laying on it's left hand side above the router 2 floors above. Signal levels reported by TEW-680MB in the 50% range with quality in the 90% range. Rx in the 270-300 Mbit range. TX in the 160-216 Mbit range. Router reports 100% signal and 270-300 Mbit. Location is isolated, free of other wireless traffic.

The manual this comes with is worthless. No website info on what the settings and readings were. If you don't use the wizzard and set up the bridge, it will change the IP of the bridge... Making it so you can not access it again unless you reset it. Even the web address won't work.

I called tech support up to ask a question and were 100% worthless. I asked what ACK failures were from and they told me from my PC. I knew it wasn't... So I wasted 30 min on the phone with the guy from India.

***Update***

I did alot of research in the settings on this bridge and found that it liked channel 44 and MSC setting of 11... Signal has jumped to 70's and now is rock solid on Link Quality at 100%.

Retries for TX where 10%+ before... After 0.005% Retry rate. Error rate was 5%+ now is 0%.

Errors for RX where 5-10% before... After 0.001% Error rate.

The Trendnet TEW-680MB is a very good product. I paired it with my Netgear WNDR4500 N900 router. I can stream 1080P on 5ghz with no buffering at all on a 2hr movie from 40 ft through 2 walls. I configured the unit in about 2-3 minuter using my netbook. In a week it has never needed to be rebooted. I plan on buying another one for another distant desktop. The product is made in Taiwan not Communist China. Every manufactured product has a few defective units that slip by. If someone gets one you will surely hear about it. The vast majority are good but people are less likely to write a review. I highly recommend this product.

I needed improved network speeds to my digital media in my living room so I decided to try one of these connected to my network. Specifically, I have a home server with a gigbit ethernet port and a Belkin N-750 dual band router also having a gigbit port. I connected both up to the high and low bands and my video became rock solid. I can't see any difference from my satellite signal (although this was not a scientific test).

As an experiment, I connected a laptop to one of the ports on the bridge, shut off the built in wireless system and tried transfering three digital video files to the server while timing the transfer wih a stop watch. The time for a standard wifi N transfer was 6:40 and over the bridge was a little over 1 minute. When I computed the transfer speed, I showed 15.85 MB/sec versus 4.2 for standard wifi Network. This was almost a 400% improvement in speed.

I put all of this in so that you can compare your network configuration with mine and get some idea whether the system makes sense for your installation.

Purchased the TEW-680MB last week for my living room, it was to replace my 4 year old Dlink DAP-1522. This product is so much better and easier to use. I have 4 devices in my living room connected to it: LG TV, Xbox 360, Panasonic Blu-Ray Player, and my Onkyo Receiver.

There is no lag at all between this device and my router (which is the Linksys E4200 V1) which is in another room. I currently have it connected on the 5ghz band. I love how you can see the details on the link quality and status by going to the status page of the device. (see below) Even with the signal strength at 55% my link quality is at 98%.

Extra Info Link is Up
Channel 149 <--> 5745000 KHz ; Central Channel: 151
Link Speed Tx 324.0(Mbps) Rx 364.5(Mbps)
Link Quality 98%
Signal Strength 55%

This device was so easy to configure compared to my old DAP-1522 and took me less than 5 minutes to setup. When using my Xbox 360 as a Media Extender to play music and movies from my PC there is no lag at all, if I run the network performance test it list a HDTV quality link between the two so I know this device is working well because with the old device it was listed at a standard TV signal with the occasional spikes in signal loss.

P.S. Make sure you update the firmware on this device from Trendnet's website before you set it up.

I've tried many many bridges and wireless cards in the past. My goal was to stream my lossless 1080p backups flawlessly. Although some provided adequate bandwidth, there's always optimization problems with wireless (Registry edits, card tweaks, etc). It got to be a pain and I ended up using a long ethernet cable anyway.

Then I read about this bridge on Smallnetbuilder.com. This seems to be the holy grail of media bridges. I'm using it at a further distance and it streams FLAWLESSLY. I know this is impossible...but sometimes it seems like it's smoother than having a wired connection! That's how good it is! I believe the link connection was at 400MBps. You do however have to point the left side (with leds facing you) toward your router (I'm using a Asus Dark Knight). I'm going to purchase another one of these for my parents and get rid of all my other wireless bridges/cards.

Note: The setup was supposed to be easy but for some reason I had to keep refreshing my browser before it was able to pick up the device. I think I had to plug it in and reconnect a few times. This didn't take long at all but I've done these types of setups before and never encountered that type of behavior.

Really happy!
