Not what I expected

Dale Schweinberger, Amazon
6 January 2009
  • Summary: I thought the new "N" protocol would give me improved reception for my wireless computers but when I set security on it I could not get connection. Other wireless routers have been no problem.

Wireless Connnection Drops and Does not Connect

Zulqurnain Khan, Amazon
11 August 2008
  • Summary: I have owned this product for over a year. The reason why I bought this as because of the N connectivity, and also because it was aesthetically pleasing. The router works fine when wired, however whenever we want to connect a wireless device its a hassle.

Stable, but limited bandwidth

A. R. Levitan, Amazon
11 August 2008
  • Summary: Was happy with the stability of this unit for over a year, but always wondered why there have been no firmware updates since the units release several years ago...I recently upgraded my internet service from 6 to 10Mbps and was surprised to see no difference in my downstream speed.

Looks great, works poorly

John Smith, Amazon
10 August 2008
  • Summary: I bought this in Feb of '07 due to the draft 802.11n specs as upgrade to my Pre-N router that was also from Belkin. That model though had almost perfect stability which is what my gripe with this is: intermittent connections.

Sent it back after 5 days of misery...

J. Amicucci, Amazon
10 August 2008
  • Summary: Definitely has potential, but "N" technology isn't quite there yet. Installation and setup were a breeze, no problems whatsoever. In fact, the simpliest of the 3 routers I have ever owned. My problem was that I could not get my Belkin N1 wireless card to connect at any speed greater than 54Mbps.

Not ready for prime time

M. finnegan, Amazon
10 August 2008
  • Summary: I have had the Belkin pre-N router for quite some time and it has performed flawlessly. My two year old recently decided to remove the antennae so i thoght I would try the new draft n products. Belkin hadn't released the N1 so I began with the Netgear Rangemax 240.

Belkin N - Don't Set High Expectations

John Taschek, Amazon
10 August 2008
  • Summary: I had high hopes that the Belkin N would be better than my Linksys Wireless G (with SRX) access point, and I was disappointed. Here are the pros/cons: Pros: Very easy to set up initially, especially with the CD. Blue LEDs signal when things are working (Security/Internet, etc.

Ok router, but very fussy

Curtis Suuppi, Amazon
8 March 2008
  • Summary: I did my research as to what router to buy because I was looking to upgrade from a wireless B. Obviously wanted to be ahead of the game so I found this to be the best reviewed wireless router for Draft N out there. Set up was easy and I loved the idea of the indicators on the front.

Not worth the hassle

Pi, Amazon
5 January 2007
  • Summary: When this router works, it works well. But it I've had numerous problems with it, and Belkin's tech support it worthless. When I've called them I simply got walked through a script that checked only the most obvious problems. When I e-mailed for support I got unhelpful responses. E.g.

Great range, but disappointing throughput and reliability

E. Harrison "gidgesharry", Amazon
12 May 2006
  • Summary: I loved the Belkin at first but as I got to know it, I found this item wanting greatly. I read about similar bad experiences online -- just google search Belkin pre-N crashes -- with the Belkin Pre-N router and with the Linksys WRT54GX (essentially the same router, both with identical chipsets using...
