Summary: I bought the Belkin F5D8236-4 Wireless router for a friend who wanted to set up a home network. My husband and I have the same router which we bought about 4 years ago new. We paid something close do $90 then at one of the big electronics stores. This one from eBay was perfect. It had cables and instructions, etc. We've never had any trouble with ours and now my friend is having no trouble with hers. Did not have any scratches or dings.

Excerpt: Well I read some of the other reviews and was shocked to hear what a few had sid that they were junk and upset because they said it didn't tell them all they needed to know. I disagree with all of that since I went with my buddy to pick out the one he bought for me to have internet. It said right on the box you had to program the laptops and any desk top as well in the main computer.I was wondering if they could read since it tells any other PC or laptop needed signed in...
Excerpt: After only using Netgear routers, we purchased this Belkin Wireless N router because it was on sale and highly recommended. I wish we'd stuck with Netgear. Within a month, the wireless stopped working. Belkin customer service was great and sent us out a new one. Two months later, the wireless for the replacement router stopped working. Belkin sent us out a THIRD router, and this one has been working for the last 9 months with no problem regarding the wireless.
Excerpt: I bought this Belkin wireless router when I started our home internet service about a month ago. I have not been impressed with it, and I feel like you get what you pay for. The router cost me about $25 on sale at my local supercenter. It seems to drop the connection more frequently than anticipated, and often has to be reset. It doesn't take a long time to reset it, just unplug, count to 10 and plug back in. It's still a pain to have to do it though.
Excerpt: The routers out of the box setup is easy. I like the advanced features I can enable most of them dont work anyone but there still useful. The router does a horrible job of putting requests in order or importance vis QOS. The router vastly slows down after a large number of DHCP clients join the network. The wireless N is nice to have but theres not so much of a difference as wireless G.
Excerpt: This router was suggested by the store where we had purchased a HP laptop for our daughter's college use and we could not be happier with it. The installation was very easy and straightforward. The minor issue we had was that the instructions did not say to connect the laptop to the system to verify it but, the 800 number connected us to a tech that was very helpful and pleasant.
This Belkan N Wireless Router is very long reaching & reliable

Excerpt: I have been using this Belkan N Wireless Router for well over a year now. My office is at one end of the house and my daughter's bedroom is at the other end of the house, which is nearly ninety feet from my office. There is a kitchen with two microwave ovens in between the router and my daughter's computer, yet the signals between her computer wireless connection and the router come through very clear, as though she were connected to DSL directly.
Excerpt: The Belkin N Wireless Router not only the product is great but the customer service is wonderful. My husband and I got internet through Comcast but had to be connected physically to the modem so I was told to buy a router. When we went out to find one we found The Belkin N Wireless Router.
