Reasonable price, good-to-average speed
Reasonable price. May not get entire 300Mbps speed though. My comcast modem shows blue light when I connect my laptop directly to comcast modem, indicating full speed vs. orange light when trendnet wireless router is connected to comcast modem indicating not full network speed. In general streaming is slower when connected to trendnet router compared to connecting directly to comcast device (Guess I should have gone for 1Gbps one) For other activities the speed is ok, so not bad at all.

Trendnet TEW-731BR wireless router
It works, but causes tremendous interference to our Bluetooth communications on cell phones. I am returning to Wal-mart for refund.

Great Buy for me

I'm happy with this unit. I have Comcast (Xfinity) and it works perfectly for me. Set up was easy, 5 mins at the most. Plug your internet connection into the router and connect your computer (one cord provided) to the router as well. Wait for everything to connect and open your browser. The only thing is that I had to manually type in web address (says site should pop up in browser when you turn the back on computer on). Once typed in, site pops right up. A few clicks, type in some info provided and you good to go. Comes with everything you need. Secure connection.

Worked Great

I was planning a trip to see some one who did not have WiFi for their Internet connection. This unit was small enough to put in my suitcase. When I got to my destination, it immediately connected to their Internet connection and I had WiFi access everywhere in their place.RLH

Password help

The product does what it claims. Don't be confused. Underneath the router it says password. That is the password to change router settings. There is a number labeled the KEY number. That is the password for INTERNET WIFI access. It took me three days to figure that out. Also, you cannot change the Network NAME or PASSWORD. ever.

So far so good, once it's set up

Took me a while to get my Windows 7 computer configured, and had to go to command prompt and tweak some stuff for my Windows 10 laptop to connect to internet, but youtube told me how and now everything is fine and dandy, and a lot faster than my previous router.

WPS Button Doesn't work

The WPS button does not seem to work. I have to initiate WPS via the web UI, if I want it to connect that way. Pressing the WPS button on the router does absolutely nothing. It's a decent looking router, and it handles the basic routing functions well enough. IPv6 is not yet turned on in my area, so I do not yet know how it will perform with the new protocol, although the web UI does display that it has support. It does not support bridging, unfortunately. I would say this is a decent, but not ideal router. But, for the typical family's use, I think it would do just fine.

The router is great. I had trouble connecting my

tablet so I e-mailed TrendNet. Received an e-mail telling me someone would reply in 1-2 days. Never heard from TrendNet. Had a friend help me connect tablet. I can tell the company does not stand behind their product.

I have Trendnet 639GR, Trendnet Gigabit Switch and recently added Tew 731BR to the home net work. The setting up of TEW 731 GR wasn't easy and had to call technical support located in India for help. I was put on hold for 31 minutes after giving my telephone number to hear that I will be contacted by someone after an hour, 2 hours passed and nobody contacted me and had to call the Technical Support again; this time I was on hold for over an hour and was told somebody will contact me after an hour. Nobody contacted me even after 3 hours, a perfect Friday night spend with fury & frustration. Next day (Saturday) morning I called the Technical Support and and a lady at the other end was nice enough to hear my ordeal with them and helped me to set up the router which took less than 15 minutes. We are contacting the Technical Support to resolve a problem that we cannot solve by over self. If I cannot get help to resolve the problem in a reasonable manner, why should I use their product. I cancelled another TEW-639GR for my son and will not encourage anybody I know to go through this again. There are many other router in the market with better service. Think again before you order products from TRENDNET.

1. Not sure what you mean. If you are referring to VOIP services, such as Vonage, Callcentric, MagicJack, etc. then yes. If you mean, is this router compatible with a DSL modem? The answer is also, yes.
by SlyCoder
2. It will not work with a standard line line but will work with internet landline phones.
by CommunityAnswer
3. No this router does not have a lindline phone connection. 5 ethernet ports and a power port is all it has on it.

1. I Leave mine on 24/7 and it does not get hot sitting idle and it does not get hot download large files.
by MAX777
2. Mine has been running for 48 hours, and it is no warmer now than it was without power. I can't speak for every unit, but mine runs very cool. It does have green power, so it's conceivable that the temperature could increase with heavy use (i.e. 1080p Streaming). Range if placed in a basement? Why on God's green earth would you do that? The general recommendation is to place wifi routers at a higher elevation, or at the very least, eye level, compared to all client devices. I do not have a basement, so I can not answer question #2.

3. I didn't notice it running hot.

1. I am answering this question using a Windows 7 machine linked by this very router. If I answered "no" to this question, it is conceivable that a mental health evaluation may be appropriate.
by SlyCoder
2. This router is compatible with all Windows OS version as well as most of the Mac OS versions. I'm currently running two different versions of Windows (7 x64 & 10 x86) on this router with no problems.
by Sprky198
3. Yes, I even use windows 8.
