Excerpt: Not compatible with HP products, 10 years old other router works better than this new router from Belkin. Even after talking to tech. support did not work for HP wireless printer and got to work for HP lap top with lot of inconvenience. Would never buy Belkin router unless they ensure thorough evaluation of their product to be completely compatible with all major brand computers, printers, phones etc.
Excerpt: I'm the office manager for a small non-profit agency in Brandon, FL servicing adoptive and foster families. A couple of weekends back we had a power surge from a Sunday evening lightning storm that knocked out a bunch of stuff in our Center. I came into work Monday morning to a dead phone line, no internet, dead printer/fax/scanner, and a confused security system. Brighthouse Communications came to replace the modem.
Cons: Complicated Set Up, Difficult To Set Up, Dropped Signal, Unreliable connection
Summary: this item is out of date and not supported by belkin using the disk and the passwords will not load if i wanted to load help i would have to paid for it through belkin support. let the byer beware.
Excerpt: After 1 month it did an automatic update. After that, it was useless! Had tech support online for an hour and they finally waived the white flag and sent me a replacement. Problem was, it was the WRONG model! Oh well, chalk up another one for their INDIA tech support team!
Excerpt: Finicky to keep connected with modem, have to restart modem then start router to keep network connected to internet. Wireless died after two months and Belkin uses India tech support is good when this Oregonian could understand them. Hopping to get my money back..
Excerpt: Purchased router 2 months ago, very easy to set up, seemed to run great. Two days ago, blue light turns to purple...nothing about that color in the user manual. Searched several websites and Belkins website for further information and performed all reset instructions. Router did not reset. Several other reviews on the web warn of this issue and it's difficulty to fix. Submitted my email to Belkin to ask question - website doesn't recognize my email.
Excerpt: [$]9 + 5.5 hours of time and it was still slower than my old Linksys router. Three calls to the "English will be my second language someday folks" with no results. Very shoddy product - thankfully they have competition. Save the grief - don't buy Belkin products.
Cons: Difficult To Set Up, Slow Connection Speed, Unreliable connection
