Would give it negative star if there is one. Save yourself some money and look elsewhere!
Have been using a slow but trusty LinkSys WRT54G for years!!! And its rock solid. Finally decided to upgraded to a 60Mbps internet service, saw this on sales on Amazon and ordered it.........
When it works, it works beautifully, though only randomly and briefly. The router's WAN connection is very weak, it would take a long long time to connect if at all. And often it takes multiple reboot to get a correct connection with valid ip obtained. Then it would hold it for a while and start dropping packets here and there randomly. Youtube videos would mysteriously stop in the middle and websites would take a long time to finish loading. Refreshing the browser sometimes solves it.....but most of the time it just accelerate the inevitable..... a manual reboot (often multiple) is required to solves the problem.
Then I checked the Trendnet website it does have a newer firmware, but it didn't help either. It is still behaving badly. And whats more, the firmware failed to load from my mac book pro connected thru one of the gigabit port. This should have been a first sign that its gigabit port is not reliable. Contacted their support and got some useless suggestions like "make sure you unzip the file and select the bin file for upload.....". But one of the suggestions didn't help loaded the file, which was - try to use another computer. I have an older win machine which had a slower nic card, which to my surprise loaded the firmware ok. Another sign that confirms the router's gigabit port only behave properly at low speed.
After the firmware upgrade, I began the slow and painful process to try to make sure its not one of the other network devices thats not compatible, nor if it was the newly upgraded cable modem acting up. I finally weeded out all possibility and determined this new router is the problem. Put back my old LinkSys WRT54G, everything runs like a dream again - albeit in slower speed.
I understand your frustration in this case and would like to help you get you set-up and running as promised. Please contact me directly at Adrian@trendnet.com with "Amazon TEW-692GR Review" in the subject line so that I can assist you immediately with the hassle free return process. Thank you kindly for taking the time to review our product and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
Not so with this router's failure. This thing failed in an EPIC way I've never seen before. It actually took my cable modem with it, by back feeding some signal out of the wan port, corrupting my cable modem's boot file! I discovered this the AM of the failure; I woke up, had no internet, left it be, called Comcast a couple hours after it not being up and asked what's up? The tech said, I show no outages, I may have to send a tech out. The tech then took me through the usual stuff of hook up a computer directly to modem, etc, and that didn't work.
So the initial assumption was line issue. He then did something I've never experienced, he said unplug it, I want to try and push a boot file, because the port I'm on (upstream) really shows I should have connection. Wahlah - the modem came up, downloaded the boot file and directly connected to the modem I had intertubes. So then he said, hook your router back up, boom! It corrupted it right in front of us. Needless to say, this router is now taking the celestial dirt-nap in electronics heaven.
I am not adjusting my stars on it, because truly for how I punish a router, it lasted about as long as I expected and performed very well during that time, regardless of the way it failed.
I ordered this to replace a dying D-Link DGL-4500, the fancy one with the pretty display on top. In general, this wireless router takes many of it's queues from the D-Link DGL-4500 with regards to it's web GUI for set-up and control. I found it pretty familiar and the language it uses similar or the same in some places, so I understood how to set it up in my "unique" home networking environment rather quickly.
To give you a grasp of what the router has to handle for me, there are 3 additional switches, with 17 full time on devices and another 10 intermittent use (iPads, etc) that must acquire DHCP from this router across my home. It is the heart of everything on the system and all internet traffic goes though it. A 24-port 1gbps TrendNet TEG-240WS comes off this router, has various devices running off it, then another 8-port TrendNet switch piggybacks off that for our home theater room, and a vintage Linksys WRT54g wireless router with everything disabled so it merely functions as a WAP for some dead spot wireless network coverage and to act as a distant switch for more stuff in another media room. I actually no longer have this dead spot with this new router, but still need the switch.
So far, this router has been running since it was delivered, flawlessly. It stays relatively cool, has not had any detectable latency, and I have not had to restart it once, post it's initial configuration. I think TrendNet could do a little more web GUI interface refinement. For example, the DHCP list of devices on your LAN do not have the device names listed with them. This made it a bit of a pain to have it assign specific DHCP IP addresses to devices on my network that rely on from the outside to the inside of my network communication from various control apps, etc. I have to run around collecting hardware MAC addys for my devices. TrendNet listens to it's users, and I've already called them and suggested a refinement. In the past when I've done this, they've actually come through via a firmware update which is pretty cool.
In Summary, the router is blazing fast, the wireless is stable and has a great (subjective) range on both it's N and G signals. I can now get to it from my neighbors house across the street, I couldn't do this with the old. My speedtests maintain a 8ms ping and 30d/4u mbps to my typical test server. I would knock off .5 star of the GUI stuff, and .5 star for the $ value compared to something fancy and blinged out such as my old 4500. I'm ok with function over form. I don't think the added radio adds THAT much more to the cost; this router costs quite a bit more than what I could have just bought another 4500 for.
After one month of constantly resetting and reprogramming the router, I threw it to the garbage can and bought an ASUS RT-AC87U which just worked perfectly since the first minute. And by the way much faster, far better wireless range and easier to program (and I can say that as an expert, after resetting and reprograming the Trendnet router for dozens of times).
