Excerpt: I purchased this router to replace my old Netgear N300. I chose this one because of the parental controls, which allow you to set time limits per device. However, the parental control settings would just "disappear" - usually when it was time for them to kick in. Belkins solution is to restart the router, no real fix. I really don't want to be bothered having to check everyday if the settings are still there.
Excerpt: We bought this router because our Linksys, of 8 years,finally gave out. When the Belkin works it's great and fast. But we keep loosing connection. I thought maybe that it was just my computer but my husband has the same problem on his computer. You'll be working just fine and then all of a sudden no internet connection which is very annoying.
Excerpt: This router needs a firmware update, do not setup your network without first updating the firmware, is an easy to setup unit but with bugs right out of the box, if your home is more than 2000 sq ft, don't even bother setting this unit unless you install the firmware update, always set it on the first or second floor towards the center of the house. to enhance the the signal, you have to know about WIRELESS NETWORK.
Excerpt: I waited too long to return this product trying to give it a chance to work out any kinks. It will randomly drop our internet connection at inopportune moments. I can usually fix it but it is annoying.
Excerpt: Supposed to be dual band, but will not stay connected that way. When you call india about it they have you turn off the 5ghz band that you pay extra for so that you can have a somewhat decent connection.
Summary: Purchased this router because of high reviews and price, hooked up router and could not get it to hook up to internet, called tech supoort who got me connected to internet, when i went to connect my laptop to internet it would read netgear and not belkin. Tech support had me on the line for about and hour and stated it was my laptop and not the router when i tried to hook up my wi-fi apps.
