Summary: We tested the N+ with Belkin’s chubby F5D8055 USB Wi-Fi adapter (the 3.13 x 1.13-inch device blocked an adjacent USB port on our notebook) and achieved TCP/IP throughput of a none-too-impressive 54.1Mb/s in our kitchen test (20 feet from the router with an insulated wall and a set of cabinets in between). As you can see from our benchmarks, however, the Belkin performed much better at range than the comparably priced Linksys WRT310N, which has fewer features.
Pros: Guest network feature; USB port; gigabit switch; QoS mode.
Cons: Slow wireless throughput; USB port limited to storage.
Excerpt: We liked the N1 Vision router that Belkin launched last year, although it was a little pricey at the time (£140). So we were pleased to see the more affordable N+ router with its added features that let you share and back up files and save energy. That’s good value for money, especially as the N+ includes both a Wireless-N router and an ADSL modem, so you don’t need to use a separate modem to connect to the internet, as is the case with some of these routers.
Pros: Competitively priced, includes both modem and router
Cons: Only allows a maximum of 16 wireless connections
Excerpt: It's relatively easy to set up and use and the Belkin N+ Wireless Modem Router can distribute an internet connection over its 802.11n wireless access point or through its 10/100 Ethernet switch. It even has a USB port that you can use to share the contents of an external hard drive across your network.
