Summary: A year of continuously spotty coverage, signal drops, and resets finished off with complete router failure. After a frustrating call to tech support I'm looking forward to just buying a new router, not made by Belkin, and going back to the relaxing life I experienced not wondering if the internet...

Summary: Over the past few months I have been trying to figure out whether this router is bad or there is a problem with my connection. I found out both were at fault. I immediately switched providers. But now it is time to publicly shame this router.
Summary: This Belkin is absolutely the worst router I've ever had the misfortune of using. I urge you at all costs to steer clear of Belkin products. My level of tech proficiency is high — I'm a web developer and have worked tech support in the past — and even I gave up after a few hours of bashing my head...

Excerpt: Turns out that Cox Cable does not support this router that I purchased online so I returned it to the La Mesa store and this time I bought an all-in-one Modem/router combination by Netgear. I used Netgear in my last set-up. the Modem was still good but I thought it was time to upgrade.
Summary: Great tomato router. This thing has terrible software on it, but it was super simple to flash to toastman tomato (F7D8302/F7D4302, same thing) As a used item, this makes for a bargain router with dual band radios. The range is not great, just good as expected for the price.
The signal was never good either. I'd be 5 feet away and only ...

Summary: I had a previous Belkin router for +6 years. It would occasionally act up, but no real problems. I decided to go with Belkin again despite reading the iffy reviews on here and boy was this a mistake.
