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...

Summary: This is a piece of crap router. I've had it for less than an year. It's aesthetically pleasing and setup was super easy, but a few months in it started disconnecting and reconnecting by itself (i always keep the firmware up to date btw).

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.
Summary: This router worked great for me for about four months and every once in a while it restarted randomly. Progressively it worsened to the point where, everything you try to connect to the internet the router would restart itself and when it comes back on it would continue the cycle ever after...
Summary: This didn't work at all!!! After 4 hours of customer support...I had to go out and buy a different router at the local big box store. I did not buy a Belkin this time around. After 8 minutes of hooking up the newly purchased one....it was up and running. I will never buy Belkin again.
Excerpt: We were told that it was easy to install...just hook it up and it would be ready. Not so....after having our internet provider here for over an hour we gave up and took it back for a full refund.
