What a waste of time.

Kyle B., Amazon
29 December 2013
  • 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.

Do NOT buy this router

Richard W McLaren, Amazon
9 November 2013
  • Summary: Even with the alternative firmware (Tomato or DD-WRT) recommended by LifeHacker, there are serious problems with this router, in particular the range. If you are standing over the router with your laptop/phone, the throughput is reasonable; however, even in a two-bedroom apartment, the throughput drops off when you leave the room that has the router.

Don't Buy POS Play Max Belkin

Moofish, Amazon
7 July 2011
  • Summary: I too have to agree with the negative reviews. This router drops connections all the time. I was upgrading from a Netgear super G to this and was sorely disappointed. The router is in route back to Amazon for a refund as we speak. Another annoying feature is that the router itself will not allow you to make more than one change at a time without a reboot to allow for the settings to take place.

This thing is JUNK!

Scott Greczkowski "Scott", Amazon
7 July 2011
  • Summary: I was really excited when I heard about this product as it looked like it could do everything I wanted it to. I got my order from Amazon and quickly hooked it up. The encloded software seemed ok. Anyways I replaced an older Wireless N router with it, and knew there was trouble when I was standing 10 feet away with the new router in direct site and was not even getting a full signal from the router.

Worst $[...] ever spent on a Router

defGeoff256, Amazon
7 July 2011
  • Summary: Do not, I repeat, do NOT buy this router. Although it is easy to set-up and easy to install, it's a better paperweight than a router. This product is so bad I can't even bring myself to sell it to anyone out of fear of embarrassment. It boasts dual band g/b/n technology and connection speeds of up to 300MB/sec over the network, but fails to say that connecting to the internet is most likely never to happen with any consistency.

Whoops - Shouldn't have bought it

L. Mortensen, Amazon
7 July 2011
  • Summary: My experience with this router has been one major mistake after another. I didn't check the Amazon reviews before purchasing - my mistake. I bought it (not through Amazon) - my mistake. I threw away the packaging after setting it up and now I can't return - major mistake. Although this thing was simple enough to set-up, it has been a major letdown for all of the reasons that other reviewers have mentioned.

Silly bug renders this device useless to me

Brett A. Quinlan, Amazon
27 January 2011
  • Summary: I have a network with a number of other wireless access points. As any network admin who looks after a number of WAPs would know, you need the SSID to match on all station. I was sent this device as a warranty replacement for a N+ whose antenna simply fell off. The old device (and every other device on the networks) allows a hyphen in the SSID, this one does not.

Constantly have to reset this router.

coffeecat "Michael", Amazon
21 December 2010
  • Summary: This was my first wireless router, and it worked well for about a day. Then, it started to drop connections. I had to reset the router 8 times a day. I thought it might have been my Internet connection, so I upgraded it - to no avail. This router works fine for 10 minutes after resetting, but then it starts dropping again. Luckily, I bought this from Costco, so I was able to return it with no hassle. STAY AWAY from this POS.

Worst router functionality ever!

Tech Maven, Amazon
21 December 2010
  • Summary: I read the reviews, and I decided to give it a shot anyway since I've had good luck with connectivity in my house. In all honesty, the connectivity wasn't the issue with me. It was the configuration. Below is a detailed account of my experience trying to set this thing up: When setting up a router, I always use the web-based interface. I don't like installing a program since there's no guarantee it will work with the operating system that I have.

Terrible router, get a D-Link instead

attackAnt, Amazon
19 October 2010
  • Summary: I bought this router and spent hours trying to get it to work correctly with my printer and external hard drive. The next day I returned it and bought the less expensive D-Link DIR-655 and it worked perfectly right away.
