Crashes every 5 minutes. Most unreliable router I've ever used.

Mike K, Amazon

  • Summary: DO NOT BUY THIS JUNK! There is nothing more embarassing than trying to do a remote screen sharing session with a client and your router crashes and needs to be restarted every 5 minutes. Humiliating. This is the most unreliable router I have ever used in 20+ years of IT work.

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...

Belkin really went down hill

Amazon Customer, Amazon

  • Summary: I upgraded to this router from a Belkin N+ router liking the 5GHZ and the torrent software. This router is JUNK! I locked up frequently, constantly dropped connection and way extremely slow. Belkin really went downhill with their routers.

Extremely disappointing router

Jeff2468, Amazon
13 September 2010
  • Summary: These comments apply to using the Belkin Play Max Router with the Belkin Play Wireless dual band USB Adapter (F7D4101). After wasting 7-8 hours messing around with this router it still had absolutely no range on either 2.4 or 5Ghz bands. Both bands start dropping off at 20' even in an open room.

Worst router I've come across

S. Eisdorfer, Amazon
13 September 2010
  • Summary: I also was excited about this router and it's features. I spent 2 hours on the phone with people in India and they could not get my home networking to work. I just wanted my Homegroup in windows 7 to work with my 3 PCs. They told me to contact my computer manufacturer.

Worst router functionality ever!

Tech Maven, Amazon
13 September 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.

Constantly have to reset this router.

coffeecat, Amazon
12 September 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.

Very disappointed.....

Alfredo Macharaviaya, Amazon
12 September 2010
  • Summary: I regret not having listened to all the warnings in this section. Right now, I am suffering the consequences of my bad judgment and have no LED lights on, no communications and no internet at all. The Belkin Playmax unit is dead since the last actualization of firmware.

Worst ever like others say

gwrap200, Amazon
12 September 2010
  • Summary: Never buy a Belkin product again. This is a time sapper. After countless hours getting it going, and it did work for quite awhile, Belkin asks for updates or product will not work. Updated the router and complete failure. Hours spent and was just the right combination of power off and restart.
