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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Summary: I have seven or so older, dual antenna "F5D7231" models around our facility setup as WAP's (Wireless Access Points) and they have been working good for years with out even a reboot. So with that in mind I purchased the N1. But this model has been nothing but a nightmare of corrupt settings.
