Rating revised (1 -> 4). Original review kept as-is for reference purposes in case others have similar problems. See final update for solution to performance problem.

------------------------------------
The purpose of a cutting-edge dual-band (and simultaneous at that!) multi-stream adapter such as this is to allow you to create a modern wireless environment using the newest 2 and 3 stream dual-band wireless routers. In practical terms, though, the 2.4GHz radio band really only has 3 clear channels to choose from so unless you live in a rural area the likelihood of getting more than one channel to bind together to get the multi-stream link speeds advertised by the manufacturers is nil.

So, you set up your new multi-band multi-stream router to use one channel of the 2.4GHz band (if you can find a clear one) just for legacy g and single stream n purposes (your smart phone, older laptops, etc). Then you set up the spacious 5GHz band with as many streams and 40Mhz channels as your router will let you claim. Your new laptop probably already has a multi-stream card that can sit on the 5GHz radio band. This TEW-684UB adapter would theoretically be the perfect add-on to a desktop PC in an awkward location for running Ethernet cable. And with simulcast radios you can use the 5GHz for your main connectivity and the 2.4GHz band for monitoring the rest of your network with free software such as InSSIDer.

I read the mixed reviews of this device and as usual I thought I would be smart enough to make it work to my satisfaction.

Having used the Netgear WNDA3100 and the Cisco AE1000 adapters previously this adapter beats them handsdown.
Neither of the previous adapters could maintain near the 300Mbps advertised, they would typically fluctuate between 54 & 150 Mbps (maybe hitting about 200Mpbs on 5mHz channel), but never holding a constant signal. The TrandNet holds 450Mbsp constantly. I am using the Cisco E4200 router (it also performed well on a Neatgear n750 router).
Range and signal reception are both FAR better than either of the mentioned USB thumb-tpye adapters.
This is the way to go if you need a high speed network connection for streaming or gaming and have a router that supports 450Mbps.

Can't say enough good things about this item! Although I've not had it long, so far so very good. My HP DV6000 lost it's wireless ability (like every other DV6000 that HP ever built..) and all Hp offers is to replace the motherboard for 250.00. I replaced the internal wireless card but that didn't help, just more wasted money. So, I stated using an older, much larger USB wireless adapter. It worked but the signal strength was very weak and it struggled to stay on line. Read reviews on the Trendnet and decided to give it a shot. Installed on Windows 7 super easy and is pegging the signal meter. Signal is coming in loud and clear! All I've lost is one USB slot but that's way better & cheaper than anything that HP offers for DV6000 owners. Still got 2 USP slots to work with but at last I'm on line again and the signal strength is probably better than it was when the original HP internal wireless was working. Love to buy stuff that does what it claims to do. Thanks Amason...thanks Trendnet!

I recently purchased a CybertronPC Assassin 4242B desktop pc from Amazon and I needed to buy either a wireless card to install or buy an adapter like this. After reviewing the stats on the Trendnet 450 Mbps Dual Band Wireless N USB Adapter I decided to purchase one, and give it a try. I am so glad that I did! It works absolutely wonderful connecting me to my DIR-857 wireless router. My connection speed between my new desktop and the wireless router is a solid and steady 216.7 Mb/s! My tests for online speeds were hitting 38.50 Mb/s D/L and 2.26 Mb/s U/L. My old HP laptop only hits 22.5 to 24 Mb/s D/L and 2.25 Mb/s U/L sitting right next to my desktop... My room is also on the second floor of our house, and the modem/wireless router are on the first floor with thick insulated walls. Our max speed setup on our internet connection is 50 Mb/s D/L, so it is performing absolutely wonderful!

I am really glad I gave this wireless adapter a try! I have had absolutely no problems with disconnects, lag, or lockups. If you are looking for a quick, easy, and very reliable wireless adapter then this is the right choice by far!

Works very well, even on my 2006 Dell with Windows XP. I use this when I am working on client computers in my office. It has a good reach and is so much less expensive than the others I reviewed.

I am totally happy. 24 years as an IT professional and I feel like this is one of my best finds when you're talking bang for buck and quality!

Thanks guys!

Well I purchased a today's special HP Laptop computer deal from HSN for $399.00. Its a pretty nice 15.6 Intel Pentium quad core N3700 processor, 4 gigs of ram, etc., etc., Now at that price HP saved money by no Bluetooth, and of course a cheap Real tech 2.4 gig wireless WiFi card that I could only get a max download speed of 25 mbs even having a top tier Linksys AC 1900 dual band fast WiFi router with Cox communications 100 mbs download speed internet service. I had a Cisco USB AC dual band USB adapter which wouldn't let me install the software as I am running Windows 10 and Cisco/Linksys wont bother coming out with a driver update for Windows 10 and it would only allow me to use the 2.4 Mhz band and it wasn't any faster than the installed card.It costs $29.and change on Amazon too. so needless to say I was looking for hours on Amazon for the best Windows 10 AC WIFI USB adapter at the best price. After reading reviews for hours on different branded adapters I came across this Trendnet TEW-804UB dual band AC USB WIFI adapter at a great price if less than $19.00 and change.
Well the software CD that came with it installed on Windows 10 with no problems. It even has a WPS button on the end of it, with a cool blue led light. The adapter is only one inch long too, so it doesn't protrude very much.
Well if your trying to increase your speed on a laptop or PC and you have Windows 10 look no farther! Trend nets own software found my 5 Ghz band from my router right away. Let me tell you now I get blazing fast speed of 95 mbs to 118 mbs down and around 10 to 20 mbs upload speed now making this lower end computer a great buy now! Another great thing about this adapter is it comes with a 3 year warranty! Trust me this is the one to buy!
