Summary: Pros: Easy setup, 5ghz band works well, Ethernet connections work great. Cons: 2.4ghz band is next to useless. Connection speeds at times are less than 1 meg. There are many complaints online about this issue. Do research before buying and don't just take my word for it. After finding out everything about this unit, I am amazed that it has as high a rating as it does.
Summary: We recently moved and changed internet providers so we needed to purchase a new router. Unfortunately, we chose this one. From the beginning it had weak signal compared to anything we have owned in the past. This was not mere speculation, it was confirmed using a wifi signal analyzer. Sometimes performance would fall to the point that Roku and Chromecast were unable to load anything. More often, the videos load slowly and have cruddy resolution.
Summary: Don't cheap out when it comes to a router or you will regret it.
Pros: Cheap price but you get what you pay for.
Cons: I have to restart the router a couple time a day because it randomly for seemingly no reason decreases in speed from my 20mbps internet connection down to about 2mbps. If I direct connect to the modem it works fine. I tried adjusting every setting in the "router dashboard" but it does not help. I don't know how other people are having no issues.
Summary: I had an expensive, high end router at my other house and I decided to buy a slightly cheaper one with this Belkin. It works the same. Quick for everyday use and even video gaming. My husband and I use WI-FI often and this Belkin has been a lifesaver. The Dual Band is nice if needed and the installation is simple. So far I am satisfied with the buy.
Summary: I thought, "AWESOME, Now we can move on, it was a pain but Belkin will actually live up to their warranty" so he gives me the case number over the phone and then I also get an email from email@example.com regarding how to proceed, see the guy on the phone can't actually get your replacement ordered, that would be too user friendly and wouldn't put another roadblock in your way making you finally give up and realize that Belkin's warranty is utter malarky.
Pros: Doesn't look terrible
Cons: I bought one of these less than 6 months ago and a local big box store. I was really excited about the features that let me plug in a hard drive and the dual N band transceivers but this item stopped working about 5 months in, since I lost my original receipt and didn't want to fight with the big box store I figured I would call Belkin's warranty line directly, I had always had good luck with other hardware manufacturers for this sort of thing. WOW what a terrible exp...
Summary: Did not work at all. I believe that someone else tried to use this router and repackaged it and I bought it. I am not sure if I will buy another one from Walmart. I will have to wait in line and hope the next one will work. I wasted over an hour driving to and from Walmart and now I have to do it again.
Summary: It does everything but plug itself in! It even let me change the codes to the ones I was using on my old router, so I didn't have to recode any of my devices. It also covers all 10 of my wireless devices with no dropouts. Included is a USB port that allows my old printer to be a wireless device. Great router, great price!
