Summary: I was very concerned after buying this router because Belkin had many bad reviews on a previous version. If you have an older version, Belkin has issued a firmware update that resolves many of the connectivity problems. I have Comcast as my internet provider and assumed that I would have to manually adjust settings because I have read other reviews that many had to duplicate the Comcast Mac Address on their router.
A Good Router, and an Even Better One With Different Firmware

Summary: If you are going to be using this only with factory firmware, other reviews may be of more help. This might be a very good dual-band router with the LATEST factory firmware, but it is an even better one with either DD-WRT or Tomato firmware, if you know why you might want to change the firmware. I have DD-WRT on several routers, but for this one, I chose Toastman Tomato firmware.
Summary: I was also "iffy" with the purchase of this one. Actually I bought it first because it looked great for the price. But then I came home and started doing research on it. There is where I started to get scared and worried beacause of all the mixed reviews and especially because most of them were negative ones. It got to a point where I was doubting what I have done and I almost returned it a couple of times even before opening the box!
Excerpt: I absolutely love this product. It has a great range as well as the capability to block all users or just some. This product also has the choice of your guest using another line to ensure that your connection stays strong. The sleek look helps to conceal it and also it helps with the clutter aspect as well. It has a blue light where most have green and orange.
