5.0 out of 5 stars No correlation between price and performance!, April 24, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: TRENDnet Wireless N 300 Mbps Home Router, TEW-731BR (Personal Computers)
I'll spare readers the details of my travails with past unsuccessful attempts to install wireless routers. Suffice it to say that TRENDnet's TEW-731BR brought a welcome end to my frustration. The time spent to install this router into the modem & PC running Vista 64 bit to which it is wired, plus the time spent to bring two remote PCs (one XP 32 bit, one Vista 64 bit) online via wireless connections, totaled about 30 minutes! The installation Wizard did it all; I simply followed the quick-start directions to the letter. Two takeaway lessons: (i) The TEW-731BR is priced at the low end of the wireless router pricing universe. Lesson to be learned: there is no necessary correlation between price and performance (but you knew that already). (ii) Persons whose sole objective is to establish a local wireless network and to access the internet as rapidly and painlessly as possible are likely to be pleased with this product. I have found the endless blathering of techies whose "reviews" cavil over the pejorative ambiance of conjunctions in user manuals to be a needless and unwelcome distraction.

No online gaming of any kind. I'm a simple fellow, one who simply wants to be able to connect to the internet without interruption or other distraction. TRENDnet router continues to perform well since I contributed my positive review. Good luck with gaming.
