The software is quite basic but includes all the info you need, the status for examples shows logs, statistics, and device info like on the left picture. There is either a setup wizard you can run or if you are an advanced user you can set things up yourself for the WIFI, LAN, and WPS.
If you like to play with some advanced controls that menu is also available for you. Here you can play with various WIFI settings to boost your signal.

The left shows our connection towards the Trendnet router and the right one vs a Dlink DIR-615. We can see that there is quite a bit of difference on the bandwidt, the Trendnet is almost 2MB/s faster.
Sisoft Sandra 2009, Network LAN Benchmark:
Same thing on the Network LAN test, we got 4.68Mb/s on the Trendnet vs 3.45Mb/s on the Dlink, this is how its supposed to be since the Trendnet router is faster according to the specs and we saw on the numbers that there is quite a bit of difference, our adapter was a 150Mbps while the router is 300Mbps so there is some more to get from it.
This is a very small router and does not support wired LAN but its very fast when it comes to WIFI, we had no issues with the connection even behind brick walls at 15 feet away from the router. That suprised me as this router has no antennas to boost the signal, but it seems the built in antenna does a good job. It is the size of a SSD drive so it’s very small and it doesn’t take alot of space. It has three different connection settings so you can hook it up as the main router or just a extra WIFI router on the exisiting one.
Trendnet was introduced to me at a computer shop years ago and they have just gotten better with time , and this router is no different as it is a high quality router with good performance. I will set our recommended stamp on it for good performance and very small size.
