HOTDAMN what a deal! Shocking

Still, you should probably only buy it if you're looking for a simultaneous dual-band router. Otherwise, buy something cheaper.

Note: this router does not support Port Forwarding with Port Translation. Just saying.

Not the best price ever, but in for one anyway, since I was just planning to go to their 25th anniversary sale this evening (perfect Friday night activity, of course). I have to pay tax, but whatever. I can deal with that to have it right away. DD-WRT now more or less working on this router Wink

Rep and TU, OP.

This is pretty average price.

Since the retail price for this is now $149. Dell with 20% email signup coupon, the price $149 - 20% which is around $120.
Also Staples with $30 off $150 coupon, make it around $120 also.

So 20% off retail is pretty average price at around $120-$125.

According to this review, it supports Port Forwarding:

Port Forward.com has a list for it:

port forwarding - yes
verdict is still out on port translation - PAT

see comment Sun Jan 31, 2010 8:35 am [dd-wrt.com]

not often needed, but i've used it when running some services at home. perhaps a contender when dd-wrt matures on this.

Port forwarding is a must for me. Can anyone who owns this router or has experience with it attest to this issue? I'm wondering of the porting issue is hardware or software based. I'd hope that installing DD-WRT would solve the problem and allow forwarding.

The router firmware does support port forwarding and port triggering, but not port translation. For example, if you have an HTTP server "A" on 192.168.1.10 listening on port 80, and another server "B" on 192.168.1.12 also listening on port 80, you may want to target A by using port 8080 to differentiate the two from outside your network.

In practice, you can usually change the listening port on the server directly. When you cannot, you might want use port translation. I've never heard of anyone needing port translation until this router came out and didn't support it. This is the sort of feature that DD-WRT would support if they get it working on this router (without the current reduced wifi power levels DD-WRT is struggling with).

By the way, I got this router on the Fry's deal (in spite of posting the Amazon deal myself) since I have a Fry's in my area and it was just slightly more with tax than the Amazon deal. I think its a great router, a huge step up from my Linksys WRT54G bounce

If I hadn't already bought the WNDR3700 and didn't need a router upgrade immediately, I'd wait until smallnetbuilder.com does a review of the TRENDnet TEW-673GRU before making a decision on which router to buy. They seem pretty evenly matched, but I'm leaning toward the TRENDnet, simply because it has external antenna.

The TEW-673GRU are being sold out quick. Overstock, Buy.com, Newegg, Amazon and the rest have them it listed from $152 and up. Some sites almost $200 bucks. Crazy. The WNDR3700 has lockup issues if you do online gaming or torrents with massive connections. Firmware is buggy also. TEW-673GRU I don't think SNB will do a review on it. ESR-9850 I have two of those but the units have some odd behavior issues in DNS replay and turning off the wireless on it own. Fast HNE (Hardware Network Engine) But my two Belkin N+ are more stable and the range is 100, 200 to 1,200 for wireless N, G is only 400 to 1000. Anyone I going to take the risk and order the TEW-673GRU and see it it goes. Right now nothings offers what this one offers.

Word of warning about this router. The wired connections go to sleep and can't be woken up. It happens with devices like a Tivo or WHS that use the connection not constantly. I had to return 2 units. I did post in their forum, do a google for Tivo and wndr3700 and it will take you to it. Tech support was clueless. They need to fix this eventually.
