Range Terrible

Joel Marcus, Amazon
22 September 2007
  • 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. So I don't think too much of this unit as it never was able give me anywhere near the same transmission rate as the Netgear USB model. I don't recommend it at any price.

Abysmal Router - What a waste

A. Rosen, Amazon
24 August 2007
  • 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. Only after disabling the network security could we maintain a stable connection, and the transfer rate then was extremely slow. This router was a total waste of money. Thankfully, Best Buy accepts returns and exchanges.

Unreliable even on wired connections. DO NOT BUY.

Amazon Customer, Amazon
24 August 2007
  • 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. I hoped that their flagship product might have seen some better attention to its firmware than their other products. I was wrong. It frequently drops wireless connections.

Waiting for my first RMA...

Neil Carpenter, Amazon
24 August 2007
  • 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 seems to be as unstable as a coffee-snorting spider monkey. When it is working, I will sometimes seem ping times as high as 55 _seconds_ (55,000 milliseconds!

Very Pretty, everything else Sucked

David "Just a guy that likes a good story.", Amazon
24 August 2007
  • Summary: So I am going to make this brief for those of you who don't want to read a lengthy review. This router is pretty, lots of bells and whistles ont he outside and has a real nice display for easy setup, and on the wired side it does connect at 1Gig, but it does not sustain wireless connections for more than 6 hours, the gig speed really isn't gig. On the G and N bandwiths it has roughly half the range of other routers.

OK for beginners, poor mfgr tech support

Bry, Amazon
24 August 2007
  • 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 the instructions to set it up. I followed the instructions in detail and they didn't work.

Another Belkin router that stops working after a year

Neil Jones, Amazon
15 April 2012
  • 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.

Not good after a year

Neil Jones, Amazon
15 April 2012
  • Summary: Was pretty decent for the first year then it started to drop signal occasionally. This started to happen more and more often until it got to multiple times per day I decided to ditch it and go with a Cisco Linksys

Becomes worse over time.

Hindle Pie, Amazon
13 January 2012
  • Summary: We bought this in 2007 to work in a 4 storey terraced house. When this router works we were able to get connectivity throughout the house in all locations including the bottom of the garden approximately 25m from the router through 3 brickwalls. Initially we connected 2 desktop PC's via ethernet, a wireless printer and a laptop via wireless. The router would occasionally (weekly) loose its wireless capabiity requiring a switch-off/on.
