Firmware was flaky, router was excellent

AlbuquerqueEngineer, Amazon
12 May 2014
  • Summary: I first installed this and the router would stop working after heavy use until a restart. I loaded on DD-WRT and it works beautifully. I'm sure newer firmwares have the issues worked out.

Don't Fear The Belkin

Shanghai Kid, Amazon
11 March 2014
  • Summary: I dunno, maybe I got lucky. Bought it to flash to 3rd party firmware, but stock firmware was intuitive and easy to configure and I've had excellent stability with mine. It's been up since July 2013, I've had to reboot it maybe 5-6 times since I first plugged it in.

Terrible Firmware, Upgrade to DWRT or Tomato

E. Meza "drunk monkey", Amazon
21 February 2014
  • Summary: This is a great price for the specs it has but the firmware and software that is default on this is just terrible. I had all sorts of connectivity issues with signal drops and slow performance. However once I installed DWRT it has performed great and all the signal drops have gone away.

Belkin Wireless Play Max Router (F7D4301)

Michael Watson "mw", Amazon
9 February 2014
  • Summary: This device works great with Tomato, including VLAN and multi-SSID. I have found the internal antenna design not to be a limitation (wireless-N). At the default 453MHz the device runs cool.

Tomato? Tomatoe?

BobVilla, Amazon
15 January 2014
  • Summary: I can put dd-wrt on my Linksys WRT54 just fine. I can follow instructions... This router doesn't take the custom firmwares easily. I had to try multiple times. After unplugging it work a week during a move, the firmware was erased. Something is not good with this configuration of chipset.

Load dd-wrt and You're All Set

Rob S., Amazon
7 January 2014
  • Summary: Using this as an inexpensive bridge for non-WiFi Ethernet-ready devices. dd-wrt tutorials are all over the web and it took me about an hour to find the right firmware files and work through the procedure. I now have a rock solid connection to my TiVo HD.

Great product, good coverage and good speed

Stephen Charles, Amazon
4 January 2014
  • Summary: This router has some bad reviews but I can't understand why.... I can receive a great signal (4 out of 5) bars when upstairs which is around 25 metres away and also outside when sitting in the car in the car park.

  • Summary: I ordered this thing and it was dead on arrival. See my review of the Belkin N300 Wireless Share Max to see my positive review of the product the seller replaced this with.

Didnt really work well for my use

A. Taheri, Amazon
18 December 2013
  • Summary: Reading the box it was very exciting to see some of the great features. Putting them in action though it didn't really take well to DDWRT and extending ranges or capabilities of exising networks.
