Summary: I actually got this router on sale for $15 and it was completely worth it. My laptop browsed the web noticeably faster than it did with my old wireless g router. It's sleek and looks nice. It's also really nice for online gaming.
Summary: I've had this for a few years & it just quit on me tonight. It will work for 2-3 minutes and then just not work. I'm very computer savvy and have troubleshooted every possible thing. It's just dead. I've had problems with the Belkin Surf before needing constantly rebooted, always dropping connection, etc. I wouldn't buy it again!
the longer you use it, the more you wished you didnt.

Summary: i got this router from best buy a 2.5 years ago after my previous netgear g router took a dump. from day one, this router was powered by its own powerstrip and it seems like the more we use it, the more disconnects we get. its hard wired into 3 devices and wireless 7+. now its not loading certain websites and load others. like others said, for the price, you cant beat it, just dont expect it to last with everyday use running multiple devices.
Summary: Bought this to upgrade an older G router. Took two hours to finally get it to connect; signal was weaker than the old router, then connection would drop, even with the laptop within five feet of the router. Router would not connect at all when the desktop was turned off; no one could figure that out. Never did get it to connect to one device. Belkin support was useless, they blamed the problems on our wireless cards. Went back to the old router, and everything worked OK.
Summary: after replacing my 2 year old router that intermittently failed, I bought this to replace it. set up was ok. It failed after 1 month. I suspected all other components instead due to this being new. I was wrong.
