TRENDnet TEW-824DRU AC1750 Dual Band Wireless AC Gigabit Router

This review is on the TRENDnet TEW-824DRU AC1750 Dual Band Wireless AC Gigabit Router.

This router has replaced my 5 GHz Belkin router which I have been using for some time, mainly because it is capable of the higher AC speeds, and because the Belkin was unreliable at some times.

Out of the box this router felt solid with no lose parts or antennas protruding from it, and its design is very streamlined. On the front are 2 LEDs, one for power and one that lets you know that the router is connected to the internet. At the rear there are power and WPS buttons, 5 Ethernet ports, and most notably, a USB port. The USB port i find is very convenient because it allows me to plug in a hard drive and make it available wirelessly over the network.

Setting up the router was pretty simple: After plugging in the power cable, I connected the included Ethernet cable from my Modem to the yellow Ethernet port on the router. From my laptop I then searched for the default SSID name and entered the network security code (all of which can be found on a sticker at the bottom of the router), and badaboom I was connected. The SSID and password are able to be modified by entering the routers IP address ( in my browser. From there I was also able to change other settings like add additional SSIDs with different passwords for guests, the wireless bands and more.

All in all I think this router packs in alot of punch for it’s price.

I received this product in exchange for my honest opinion of it, and this is how I feel about the product.
