Summary: Well, I have been testing the N1 for a couple of weeks and I can say that is a very good wireless router with good performance, also nice looking. I have found the LCD display very useful, as many others.
Summary: My Netgear MIMO router with lots of blinking blue lights got me hypnotized one evening and made me wonder if a company would ever make a router with a LCD display to show if someone has somehow logged onto my LAN without permission.
Summary: I have used this modem for a while now. It does the job....just. As a previous reviewer has said, and I agree, range is not very impressive. I have 300Mb wireless adapter in my machine and I'm only getting 3 bars out of 5. My 54Mb modem was giving me 4. It was easy enough to set up.
Excerpt: Purchased the N1 as I needed a larger range, and this certainly does deliver on that. I have even configure my friends who lives 4 doors down and her laptop picks up my signal. The only thing I can fault is the fact that they have 3 aerials, it does just seem a tad unnecessary in my opinion.
Summary: The product set up guide was easy to use and new wireless router was up and running within minutes. Router copes well with multi-users, but range of wireless signal not as good as anticipated, signal loses strength in parts of the house.
Belkin Desktop Card: Just good, nothing more, nothing less
21 February 2009
Excerpt: After using a laptop for many years I turned to a desktop but I wanted to maintain my wireless capabilities. So I opted to go for a decent desktop card so I went for the reputable belkin brand. In all this is a good card and antenna set.
Pros: Good range, reliable
Cons: Short antenna cable + strange connection between card + antenna
Summary: I got this after a review in Macworld, that said, apart from it being a great modem/router it was a rarity because it had mac-friendly setup. My last one of these was a Netgear, and it took me two days talking to India to get it set up...
Summary: I bought it thinking it will have better coverage and speed than my G D-Link, This set up was very easy and was up running within 5 minutes but the coverage is worse than my G D-Link and connections breaks up now and again.
