Customer Reviews of TRENDnet TEW-623PI 300Mbps Wireless N PCI Adapter
Trendnet malfunction with WIN 7-6411/15/2011
This item functions very well with Win XP but is not worth 5 cents with WIN 7-64. Many other users have same problem. I would stop selling this item until Trendnet resolves its compatibility problem with Microsoft WIN 7.
Affordable Network Card4/2/2010
The NW card is part of my HTPC setup to connect to the ESR9850 router. The installation was successful without any issues on Windows 7. Continuous, uninterrupted connectivity to the router. I am happy with this purchase.
Fast and gets the job done!!1/7/2010
Good switch from a wireless g adapter to wireless n. It is an easy install, just plug and let windows 7 do the rest. Excellent reception, speed and quality for the price. Ignore CD installation guide!!
Just got this card two days ago and it is the latest version/revision 3.0R - same one that is listed & shown on the TRENDnet website. *I did not use the supplied driver CD* - I just plugged it in, turned on my PC and WINDOWS 7 did everything else. First it installed the hardware with a generic driver, and it worked right away. A few minutes later it found and installed the TRENDnet driver automatically. All together it took me 5 minutes to get up and running, from plugging it in to downloading at 3 MB/s!!! It is FAST & AWESOME!!!
Works just fine... if you install manually12/19/2009
I just received this wireless card and installed in my PC. I used the CD that came with it, following the instructions. That worked fine... getting the card to work that is. What it did then was disable the welcome screen and the logon panel for multiple user accounts. I uninstalled the software, and installed the card manually... navigating to the subfolder for my operating system (XP). Worked like a champ... and I'm seeing a significant increase in wireless connection speed.
Windows 7 x64 Ultimate12/17/2009
Received the card hardware v3. Installed in Dell XPS Gen 5 Windows 7 x64 Ultimate. Windows 7 found and installed drivers automatically. Tested by connecting to N router (Rosewill n4) with speed of 270mbps and 3 bars of signal (router is behind 3 walls and about 40 feet). Works great. Received with 1 day of shipping from buy.com
Works great, had to do a custom driver install from Rainlink for xp x64 to be supported though. All these negative reviews are bogus, if you know what you are doing then you can set it up easily. I have the matching trendnet wireless N router to go with it but it works just the same with any other router.

Error code 392/7/2008
Like the other guy who wrote his review, I to got a code 39 when installing the driver. Would Not Work in XP or Vista. Called Customer noservice and first unseatted (if that's a word) and reset it into the pci slot. Still didn't work. tried a different known good PCI slot and agian would not work. I'm trying to work with customer noservice but have been on hold a while. I've used other trendnet devices but this one just doesn't work.
I bought 2 of these to go with a D-Link wireless-N router. The D-Link was a breeze to set up but the Trendnet cards have been a real pain. From the reviews I've read I was aware I was taking a chance but I have a high knowledge of computers so I was not too afraid to take the chance. If I had only knew just how much of a pain this was going to be I would have gladly paid the extra money for another brand probably D-Link. The first one took me about four hours and countless tries before it was ever recognized by the computer. The second one I'm still working on and it doesn't look very good. I went to their website just now and while there checked on the status of my rebates. They say I purchased outside of the time frame when I did not. I sent them all requested info. I'm no dummy, I know I did it right as I've done this so many times before. I know that sometimes companies will give you a hard time with rebates as I'm sure they would like for you to give up so they will not have to pay you. Looks like this is one of them. Right now I'm really angry and I'm not allowed to say what I'd like to about this product and the company itself. I can though advise you to not buy it and buy one from another company that will offer you a better product. Sometimes you just have to spend the extra money. Like the old saying "you get what you pay for" so true.
I bought two of these cards but I should have read other site reviews before trying to install one in my Dell. It blew my power supply. After I fixed that, I couldn't get the card to work with XP. The drivers would not load. Windows error code 39. I tried the CD that came with it and then I uninstalled and tried an updated set from Trendnet's site. No luck. Trendnet's tech support has been useless. I have installed dozens of various wireless adapters before. This is the most frustration I have ever experienced. I'm send them back to buy.com.
Trendnet Wireless N-Draft TEW-623PI PCI & PC Apapt3/11/2007
The Trendnet Wireless N-Draft TEW-623PI PCI & PC Apapters are great products. It uped my Netowrk throughput to 300Mbps for 100 Mbps with wired ethernet when coupled with TrendNet's TEW-631BRP Router. However, while the included manual explains exactly how to install the hardware, it doesn't address the setup at all. The electronis User Manual is no better. I ended up calling TrendNet and they explained how to set the adapters up.
