Summary: Again, some reviewers have panned this router as "garbage" or "unreliable" or what have you but in reading some of the issues written, I have to question the supposed five star "tech knowledge" proclaimed.
Pros: I bought this router toward the end of 2009 and it has been performing flawlessly since. I'm not sure of some of the less favorable reviews, nor of claimed tech levels. The router has a nifty web interface for setup; if you want to go beyond the basic plug and play, where you can go into a myriad...
Cons: I really don't have any cons except perhaps the lack of a firmware upgrade if that is really even a con. It has been working perfectly so why would I want to change the firmware? I also haven't had a reason to get support from Belkin so I really can't comment there.
Pros: N Technology....Dual Antennas... It powered on?
Cons: This router absolutely refuses to let me change anything. Let me be more specific. After 3 months of having this router, it choked. It powers on, and defaults.

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.
Summary: I received this device to replace an 5 year old no more working device. I thought I just unplug the old one and plug in the new and everything should be a go. No ! After a rather complicated configuration procedure I did get the unit working.
Summary: Thought it would have much better range...but it didn't. The previous router from DSL company actually had better range and it was free. Thought this would allow at least three bars outside the house in yard which cant be more than 50 feet from router through 2 flimsy walls, that is why I bought it...
Summary: just pony up and buy a nicer router, this one is old anyways
Pros: easy set up, status lights on the front make it incredibly easy to troubleshoot
Cons: drops connections all the time, constantly needs reset, can handle streaming one HD movie or playing one game online but if more than one thing tries to use the connection this thing just folds and lags out
