Summary: Overall great router, but not for this price. (99.99 at time of review) Got one from my ISP a little ways back for cheap, and it's done well as a household router.
Pros: Built in USB 2.0 slot for moderate NAS is nice on small home networks Can forgo routing and firewall to use it as a pure access point User friendly UI (Ties in with a con though) Great for a home and most users, but...
Cons: Can't view current local DHCP assignments Can't filter or disable the log, and it only keeps something like 30 entries before it starts erasing impossible to customize QoS priorities Customization is watered down pretty hard. It's nice for novice users, but slightly irritating to those who want more control
Summary: I bought this new "older technology" router(came out in 2008), mainly because of the good reviews on signal strength. After setup, found signal good near router, but move more than 25 feet away and signal very weak. Tried data speedtest at different distances, very poor after 25 feet. Used my 5th gen iPod touch & my Android phone(wifi), got same results with both devices. I returned it yesterday to my nearest Walmart.
Summary: I purchased this item for my sister and set it up at her house with no problems. It does not come with any instructions but i used the internet as a resource to help me step by step. Great value, works just like new, no problem and at an affordable price.
Summary: It wouldn't work out of the box. I called technical support for help. They refused to help unless I paid $39.95 up front. They said it was an old model, that the firmware needed to be updated for it to work and that technical support is no longer complementary on this product, even though it says it is in the instructions. Disbelieving, I hung up and called back, twice, only to be told the same thing again and again. I'll never buy another Belkin product in my life.
Summary: This router did not work well for my system. Using this router to receive a signal from a HughesNet Modem. We have two computers running from this. One is a Desktop and the other is a laptop. Both are running on Windows 7. It appears this router is not the best choice for Windows 7. Didn't install real easy and kept losing the signal. I returned it and purchased a Belkin 600-N which seems to be working much better at this time.
This was the first cnet review that was 180 wrong.

Summary: Did I mention how bad this router is? It might just be quality control. I noticed 152 5 stars and 152 1 stars, so that sounds like quality control issues. I hope this was just a mistake by Cnet reviewer. Horrible Router.
Pros: N/A There are none.
Cons: Transfer rates on USB attachment are horrible. Dropps all the time, no firmware for several years. sporatic speeds, terrible terrible terrible.
Summary: I have had several routers over the years, and recently upgraded my wired and wireless LAN to the N type using this router. Easy set-up, so far it is very reliable, very good distance for my home (single story 3br, 2ba type), and the speed for my laptops which have b/g/n wireless are very good everywhere. I would highly recommend this router. If you expect your wireless (or gigabit wired) speeds to significantly jump upward from a G speed router, don't.
Summary: Recieved item in a timely fashion from Walmart. I reviewed this Belkin N+ router from a CNET article on the the 5 best wireless routers out there. We were having a problem with the upstairs computer cutting out on the basement routers broadcast. This router seems to have corrected that problem. And this being the next generation of improved routers. The computer upstairs seems to to be running faster. A win...win proposition for me. And I don't work for Belkin..lol.
Summary: I replaced another Belkin product and found this to have everything that I needed. I liked having the second way to allow others to use access without giving access to my secured internal network. I was easy to setup and worked almost right out of the box.
