Excerpt: Router manufacturers have a bad habit of assigning the same names to several different products, or completely changing a router’s underlying architecture and changing only the version number. Belkin has two routers it calls N Wireless (and a third called the N+ Wireless). For the record, we reviewed its model F5D8236-4. The N Wireless is very short on features, but it turned in first- or second-place performances at four of our six test locations.
Pros: Better throughput performance than most.
Cons: Limited manual configuration; very short on features; no connectivity at our outdoor locations.
