Summary: I bought this because it really is a beautiful router. I also loved the on-screen meters, which are very helpful. Unfortunately, the first one I bought was defective and I had to have it replaced under warranty. The second unit had buttons that didn't work and had to be replaced.
Summary: A Dell rep talked me into this router about 2 years ago. Initially, it was a nice router; but then the service quality deteriorated and it became too slow. Google this issue and you'll find that I am not alone with this problem. My first wireless router was a Belkin.
Summary: Three problems: 1) Hangs 1-2 times per week for me. Others also experience hanging (Google for numerous similar stories). I'm using the latest firmware (F5D8232-4_WW_1.00.15). Affects wired and wireless. Power cycling is the only solution I've found.
Summary: I didn't buy this router for the pretty display or the aesthetics, I got it for the wireless-N and gigabit switch (with guest access on a separate SSID a welcome bonus). I bought it with trepidation, having had unwelcome experiences with Belkin network kit before.
Summary: I've owned Belkin products in the past with great luck. I have their USB hub and print server and both work great. I had this router for 6 months then it began turning off on its own. It wouldn't stay on for more than 3 minutes.
Summary: So I am going to make this brief for those of you who don't want to read a lengthy review. This router is pretty, lots of bells and whistles ont he outside and has a real nice display for easy setup, and on the wired side it does connect at 1Gig, but it does not sustain wireless connections for more...
Summary: If you're a very light home user who doesn't mind periodically having to reboot your router, then the pretty display might make you feel that you didn't waste your money. However, if you have any greater needs then this unit is destined to disappoint.
Summary: Bought this router thinking it was advanced technology. This things is advanced garbage. The buttons have to be pushed with force to work. As far as the connection, our two computers constantly dropped connection or could not connect at all.
