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.
Summary: A lot of reviews on this are from very old firmwares. You have two options. 1. Install the latest Belkin drivers. 2. Install dd-wrt and get an awesome router for a great price. It takes about 30 minutes of googling and installing, but is far worth it.
Summary: MODEL #: I suggest anyone purchasing this router check their model number as versions of this router are visually identical and thus easily mixed up. I found it most clearly labeled on the underside of the foot of the router. Just flip it over and take a look.
Works well with ddwrt but range has more to be desired

Summary: I haven't tried the stock firmware, but did flash it with ddwrt. I agree with most reviewers that the reception is pretty bad, so don't expect it to cover a lot. The range for me is about 25-50 feet through one wall. That's enough for what I need it for. With ddwrt, the functionality is great.
Summary: I've had the router for a few days now. I installed tomato firmware on the router as soon as I got it, and it seems to be working fine. I'm quite happy with what I got and the price I paid for it.
Summary: I bought this about 10 days ago, and I use this Item like for 10hrs aday and facing no trouble. The only reason behind buying this product is; I've seen too many negative comments and said I am gonna buy this and take the whole responsibilities..... and now the product is well running no issues.
Summary: It's not perfect, of course, but for 30 bucks, it's pretty close. Don't expect to find another N600, simultaneous Dual-Band router with Gigabit Ethernet for that price! I didn't even mess with the stock firmware, just put DD-WRT mini on it straight out of the box (using the stock firmware's GUI),...
