TRENDnet TEW-805UB wireless adapter: review and testing

The introduction of a new wireless communication standard IEEE 802.11ac in the shortest time forced the manufacturers of network equipment to develop and deliver the appropriate hardware. A pioneer in this area can truly be called a company TRENDnet, which introduced to the market the routers of classes AC1200 and AC1750 with the support of wireless mode IEEE 802.11ac. Following the full-size solutions the manufacturer took over to updated lineup of portable devices. In particular, recently the range of products TRENDnet's was extended by compact Wi-Fi-adapter TRENDnet TEW-805UB class AC1200, which will be decribed in this review.

Packaging and set of delivery

TRENDnet TEW-805UB

Wireless Adapter TRENDnet TEW-805UB comes in a small cardboard box, which protects it from damage during transportation. The front side of the box shows the appearance of the device, and also allows you to get acquainted with its basic features:

  • AC1200 - support of modern wireless communication standard IEEE 802.11ac and correcpondance to class with a theoretical total capacity up to 1200 Mbit/s;
  • Easy Setup - easy setup;
  • Wireless Dual Band - wireless support in two ranges;
  • 5 Gbps USB 3.0 - connection to PC or laptop by using a high-speed port USB 3.0.

On the reverse side of the box is scheme with typical situations of using W-Fi-adapter, as well as brief information about its capabilities. Model TRENDnet TEW-805UB can be useful if you want to connect the Internet to a device that does not have the appropriate hardware (such as a PC without an integrated Wi-Fi-module) or to provide a faster communication channel with laptops/tablets that do not support the current standard IEEE 802.11ac. In the latter case instead of the traditional maximum 450 Mbit/s you can wait for a theoretical speed of 867 Mbit/s. However, this requires the distribution of the Internet via the router, which also can provide such speed. Fortunately, such solutions are on the market, one of them was tested in our test lab (TRENDnet TEW-812DRU).

Scope of supply of TRENDnet TEW-805UB includes:

  • User Manual;
  • CD with documentation and software.

Design and internal device

TRENDnet TEW-805UB

Externally the TRENDnet TEW-805UB looks like a flash drive rather than network equipment. Compact size (80 x 27 x 12 mm) and light weight (20 g) make the device portable and easy to transport, for example, with a laptop. The absence of external power supply and antennas also is a positive effect to the ease of use of the wireless adapter.

Data exchange with the computer is provided by high-speed port USB 3.0, which will ensure maximum performance of the adapter and eliminate any problems that could theoretically occur due to insufficient capacity of the interface.

The body of adapter is made of durable plastic, painted black with a glossy sheen. On top you can find a small indicator that signals the device operation mode and the button «WPS». By pressing and holding it for 3 seconds you can activate the same function. Recall that the WPS technology is designed for quick connection to a wireless network segment without additional user intervention. Probably there is no need to remind how important for portable devices is to minimize the action during connection and adjustment.

TRENDnet TEW-805UB

We did not try to disassemble the unit. In this case the particular hardware platform is not as important as its capabilities. Therefore we will provide only their verbal description. Built-in wireless controller can transmit data at range 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz and supports all connection types including the latest standard IEEE 802.11ac. As mentioned above, the theoretical maximum speed of the connection is 867 Mbit/s, for IEEE 802.11n it is limited to 300 Mbit/s.

Two internal antennas are used for signal transmission. Reception sensitivity is along with full-size decisions, lower is the power output (depending on the type of connection).
