Not a DLNA router,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: TRENDnet Wireless AC1750 Dual Band Gigabit Router with USB Share Port, TEW-812DRU Version 2.1 (Personal Computers)
Was under the impression this router did DLNA, streaming videos and photos to DLNA certified products such as my TV and PS3, but unfortunately that isn't the case. The product description says file sharing, but not DLNA so don't be confused like I was. I'm disappointed that it doesn't do it, but range and speed are excellent and far outdo my previous netgear router.
I've had the TRENDnet AC1750 for a month now and can say I am more than impressed with its performance, reliability and speeds. I have a total of 4 MacBooks, three wifi televisions, multiple wifi game consoles, 4-5 different phones depending on the day, all of these connected streaming audio and video and the router works flawlessly. I set up a total of 4 networks for different purposes so there would not be any interference, and everyone at home is now happy.

Would you mind sharing what settings you have that allow you to stream flawlessly? I, too, bought this router believing it supported DLNA. It does work decently, but there is a lot of stutters and green cloud storms will suddenly appear ;) Does it have to do with QoS or UPnP? Thanks!

I think you can still stream videos and media files on your PS3 even if DLNA isn't supported. just change the sharing options in windows.

DLNA should not be a function of any router, so I'm not sure what you're seeing as evidence of that. Just as with many software protocols, it sits on *TOP* of UDP or TCP which in turn sits on top of IP. The router not only should not care, it wouldn't know how to care.
Could you please elaborate?
