The Trendnet TEW-632BRP router was purchased in 2010. I’m not sure if it’s now considered “old” by router standards. The manufacturer has it listed as discontinued, but my late 2009 iMac has many successors too.
Now and then it needs to be unplugged and plugged in to restore the wireless connection to the printer, otherwise no problems that I’m aware of.
What was under consideration for a replacement is the Apple AirPort Extreme. That is, it was until reading that Apple is dropping this line of equipment.
Reading about the ease of installing the AE prompted me to ask if there is another, similarly priced non Apple router, that installs with the same apparent ease as the AE.
The Trendnet install was not pleasant. The owner’s manual had no mention whatsoever about a Mac installation. Any information had to be obtained from the Trendnet web site.
Are there any suggestions for a reliable, quick and easy to install router?
