This thing is JUNK!

Scott Greczkowski, 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.

Highly Disappointed

  • Summary: I was excited for this router ever since I read about it back on Gizmodo. I am a heavy internet user, on a 30MBps connection. Multiple gaming consoles, media center, and bittorrent are all major users. I was happy to see the 5 Ghz spectrum for my xbox gaming / HD streaming needs. Router was up and running extremely fast (a great point), but when it came to getting into the advanced features, this router is just lacking.

Constantly have to reset this router.

  • 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 $[...] ever spent on a Router

  • 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.

Worst router functionality ever!

Tech Maven, Amazon
7 July 2011
  • 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.

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.

What a letdown

Amazon
11 April 2010
  • Summary: Amazon Verified Purchase ( What's this? ) This review is from: Belkin Wireless Play Max Router (F7D4301) (Electronics) I've had a belkin wireless G for years, which has performed flawlessly, so I was looking to update it with this new router and was looking forward to an faster, stronger connection.
