Summary: I have owned this router for about a month and can comfortably state that although Belkin's "Enhanced Wireless Router" has a couple of upsides; it comes factory-coded with a major malfunction. Allow me to get the "positives" of this router out of the way first: SET-UP: This router is intended to be a plug-and-play kind of deal so setting up is meant to be very simple for just about any user -either follow the manual or the more in-depth instructions and troubleshooters...
Summary: I consider myself pretty techsmart. I rarely have to even read a manual when I operate a new device because I can figure it out. With this particular router, I HAD to read the manual because it wasn't obvious. The setup was easy enough, but setting up the wireless was very difficult for me. I'm used to just searching out a signal. This was not the case with this router. After about an hour of messing with it, I finally got the wireless to work on my laptop.
Summary: I bought the Belkin Wireless 150N router a week ago. Like other reviews said, the router drops connections randomly every 10 mins or so. It took me quite a few days to figure out the issue was with the router not the cable modem. So I replaced it with a LinkSys router. Don't buy one until Belkin fixes the problem and makes public announcement. If you do, be sure to keep your receipt around!
Summary: I experienced losses of connection 2-3 times daily from the day this router came out of the box. Went to Best Buy to find a replacement, pointed to it on the shelf and told the sales associate it wasn't holding the connection no matter what I tried. He said "that's because it's a terrible, terrible, router." Wish I had known!! Got a linksys and it works great.
Summary: Three days ago, I bought the Belkin 150N and had no trouble connecting it to my cable modem. Set it up to WAP2 protection and was off and running at ELEVEN Mbps faster than my old modem! Almost immediately, the signal drops started. Pages wouldn't load. I would open a new window and that wouldn't load. I'd get frustrated and open another: same story. I thought it was my browser and uninstalled, then re-installed Firefox...still had the same problem as before.
Summary: I needed to replace my d-link wireless router after 7 years of admirable service and I noticed this Belkin router was on the cheap. Cheap doesn't necessarily mean good in this case though. This Belkin router drops the Internet connection every 10-20 minutes even though the cable modem is always working properly.
Summary: I had the same problems as the lost person did, the router would drop connection for no reason. Very frustrating!!!. Replaced this Belkin with a Netgear....haven't lost connection once. Would not buy another Belkin.
