Beautiful and a piece of garbage

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: I curerntlky use a Netgear N USB adapter in my Lenovo laptop. However, it sticks out too much and is very fragile so I went for this Belkin unit which would fit in the card slot. The result was reception of about on third the transmission rate of the Netgear unit.
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: 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.
Summary: This is certainly a pretty piece of hardware and I liked the idea of having at-a-glance utilization data. Unfortunately, the reality isn't nearly as pretty as the picture. Beyond the uncertain build quality (the buttons are worse than my 1982 Sinclair Spectrum), the wireless stack in this thing...
Summary: I purchased this product to replace a Belking "Pre-N" router (which is Belkin's way of saying it's a wireless-G just like everyone else has) that was no longer functioning well. This unit comes with instructions to plug in the unit, type in an address in your browser's address bar and then follow...
Another Belkin router that stops working after a year

Summary: This is yet another Belkin that I bought to replace another Belkin N1 which failed after a year. The connectivity started to drop and it got worse and worse over time. This was the case for wired and wireless connections.
