Belkin N1 Wireless Modem Router: My Review of the N1
12 January 2010
Summary: 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. It was fairly easy to configure, however I did have some teethign problems at first, which did turn out to be my ISP who were at fault.
Pros: The physical setup process guide is very easy to follow
Cons: Three aerials. No guide to setup the ISP settings
Summary: Threw the quick install software in the bin and managed to get it working by setting it up manually , should of just done that in the first place . No updated firmware on their website . Extremely poor 802.11g range compared to older Linksys and Dlink wireless routers I've owned . Probably fine if you live in a flat or something . On the plus side it does look dead sexy . Seems overpriced to me , i got it heavily discounted at a closing down sale.
Pros: Dead Sexy
Cons: Overpriced Little in the way of diagnostics Very poor Wireless strength No firmware updates
Summary: Very easy to set up including WAP security. Simple enough, but can be a little fiddly if you go too far with your security. Problematic is you use VPN to external networks, often once it blocks you you won't get that connectivity back.
Pros: Ease of setup and use. Range is OK but I had expected a little more bandwith
Cons: Gert very hot. Only cooling panel on bottom of device and not enough clearance fro air movement. No off switch. Also forever losing connectivity with wireledd devices. Could be conflict with corless phone, but really, cheaper devices have no issue so this should not occur.
