Showing 1-10 of 12
Makes for a decent WAP, but as a router, CRAP

Summary: I really wanted to like this router. I have had mixed results with Belkin routers before but took a chance on this one. I have a fairly busy home network, but nothing particularly strenuous from a traffic standpoint.
Summary: It's good looking, easy to set up, but it is just not realiable. Some times it works, some times it doesn't. I have upgraded it and done everything i could, but it just breaks down several times a day. In other words, don't by this product.
Summary: Got this along with 4 of the USB adapters, (already wrote their review (1 star)) This was not an easy transition from my 'G' network as I hoped, and most of it had to do with the USB adapters being bad. My Issue with this is that it will lock up about 1 to 2 times a week.
Summary: First, I am an IT professional of over 25 years. I can honestly say that this is the first bad Belkin Router I have come across. There are always bad 'apples' in a box, and you should not let that spoil the rest. But this router is just on the lowest end of the scale.
Summary: It's a great looking product for sure, best in class. The router incorporates broad and unique security features. The best for me has been the guest access key which I give out to visitors then change frequently allowing me to keep my core security separate.
Sexy and cool, but has technical problems with VPNs

Summary: This router is sexy and cool, no doubt. The LCD makes a nice clock, and you can watch your upload and download speeds. :-) The fun stops when you deviate slightly from typical home use and try to connect to your office VPN (virtual private network).
Summary: I read many reviews and many said this product has problems and Belkin support sucks, yet I was doubting what they are saying because this router IS expensive, I thought how come Belkin would manufacture such expensive product and be that lousy....? But...
Not Recommended - blocks transmission of MS Outlook and Messenger

Summary: I was very excited about this router due to it's sleek design and hefty features but I was very dissappointed quickly. It works great if you only run windows Vista, but beware because in Windows XP sp2, Windows Live Messenger and MS Outlook 2003 did not work, even with turning off the firewall on...
Summary: No good for a MAC. The Belkin N1 Vision router works really well and fast IF the SECURITY is DISABLED. Once security is turned on the download speed dropped 95% from 4800 kb to 156 kb. Upload speeds were 450 kb. I have called technical support several times have a reference number.
