Excerpt: I have a wonderful linksys wireless router that I use most of the time. But during our move I needed a cheap router. I bought this router at Target for $40. When you set it up you don't get to choose your own password - you must install it using the CD included in the package or it doesn't work correctly. You MUST use the password that came with it - it sets the ssid to broadcast automatically and wouldn't let me change the ssid.
Summary: I bought this Belkin router because I thought it would be faster while gaming than the one I have been using. After I left positive feedback for this seller, the Router started kicking every device wireless or LAN off the Network periodically and would not let my computers stay connected. I am not familiar enough with the chance of re-imaging this device. I just don't use it nor can I re-sell. Oh well; win some you loose some.
Summary: I purchased the Belkin N1 Wireless router after a Best Buy employee told me that it was one of the best routers that they carried. He was horribly wrong. There are several problems with this router that should prevent you from making the same mistake that I did when I purchased it. 1. The router constantly gives out duplicate IP addresses.
Summary: This is the most horrible experience I have ever had with a router. I loved the original Orinoco routers, so easy and so reliable. I also loved the Belkin Pre-N router. This N1 however is horrible. It started with booting off the system every 15 minutes. After TWO DAYS on the phone with technical support, I got the router replaced. The new router booted me off the net after 30-40 minutes.
Summary: I had this router for a while now (longer than I could return it for a refund). Very often I cannot connect to web sites that I frequently use. Eventually I did some research and found that this router has a fatal defect - its DNS cache will get corrupted over time. The latest firmware from Belkin does not fix it. When I initially had problem accessing web sites, I naturally assumed that the web sites could be down or my ISP could have problems.
