"Drops WOW connection"
5 August 2009
Pros: Easy to setup and configure. Connect to my Linksys modem without any problems. Web interface is easy to use.
Cons: If you get the Ver 2000 it will drop you World of Warcarft connection every 2 hours while doing a time check. Belkin has not been very good at resolving this issue to date, and disabling the NTP service only way to keep it from drop your connection.

Pros: - unique design featuring big LCD screen - real eye candy
Cons: - DHCP giving different IPs to the same MACs every time router is restarted - poorer B/G throughput than even old routers - unreliable setup - some changes must be confirmed & reconfirmed several times
Who writes the instructions? Who reads the directions?

Summary: If the people at Belkin would first try to install their products according to the instructions they supply, they would rewrite the directions and eliminate most of their problems. On the other hand, if the customer would read the Specifications before they purchased, their problems would be greatly deminished. Belkin uses a reversed polarity SMA cable connector on it's wireless cards and therefore it's antennae.
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
