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: Easy setup but the unit drop connection too often. Read reviews but brought the unit for its display and wider reception. Router is at one end of the house and wanted better signal connection at the upstair far end of the house. But the drop connections within a 15 feet radius was very fustrating and went back to my old 54g router which also happens to be a Belkin. Would not recommend this router.
Summary: I highly dis-recommend this router. It is a pain. It does not stay connected to the internet continuously. Working from home quite frequently I need to have an application running that connects me to the relevant server(s) at work. As soon as the internet connection gets interrupted that application has to re-start again (I often have to re-start my laptop). I have lost a significant amount of time.
Summary: As a networking professional, I have supported / troubleshooted many types of servers and networking products in both residential and commercial settings. I have to say that this particular router has to be the worst that I have seen for reliability and vendor support. I purchased this router along with the N1 wireless card. The card consistently froze with the Belkin wireless utility and speed tests were no better than the 56G wireless card it replaced.
A worthless upgrade from old D-Link wireless router
19 January 2008
Summary: After extensive trials on the unit I purchased from Amazon and a replacement from Belkin, I am now requesting a full refund from Amazon for this worthless router. It proved to be much slower than the 3-yr old D-Link it was to replace, with weaker signal strength. This was after several calls to Belkin tech support to make sure their unit was tweaked to perform at it's peak.
Summary: I bought this router because it promised great broadcast strength, quick setup and easy troubleshooting via its icon-based front panel. After six hours on the phone with tech support, and replacing the router once, it still doesn't work. Repeated calls sent me to customer support techs who wasted hours asking me to repeat the same processes with each call, despite my giving my case number each time.
