Couldn't keep a connection, had to reset it often
25 September 2011
Summary: Updated 1/1/13- I could not keep a connection after using this for a month or so. Constantly needed to be reset several times per week. My ISP recommend Linksys, so I went back to my old router. Maybe it's just my ISP, but this seemed a bit buggy for my set up. (original post below) I bought this Belkin wireless N to upgrade my speed over my older Linksys wireless G network.
Summary: was defective product./bought it thought it wouldent be perfict/did exspect it to be functionable.it took over 20 min. to come on when pluged in. over heated and shut down in a few min. wouldent restart for a exstended time. was very frusterating ,could not stay connected to internet. bought a new router and it works well .
Summary: I purchased two of these to go with my new Belkin N1 router. I installed the cards in my IBM and Compaq laptops. Installation and setup were very simple, kudos to Belkin for that. The IBM instantly connected and showed a speed of 300Mbps, the Compaq also connected, but only showed a speed of 54Mbps. No matter where I placed the two laptops the IBM always showed 300 and the Compaq showed 54.
Summary: Well, first off, I'm not sure if it's the card, or the N1 router itself, but ever since I installed the new N1 serious wireless in my home, I have had nothing but problems and poor connectivity. They clam that the N1 has extended range, I went back to my Pre N wireless and got twice the range and way better reliebility then with the N1. The concept seems good and the descriptions are great, but i can't say I feel the product is what they say it is.
Summary: I bought the Belkin N1 wireless router and this notebook card in the hopes of obtaining a usable signal several rooms away from the router. The router worked flawlessly, and the notebook card gave me a weak / intermittent signal where I wanted to use it. This was however an improvement over my previous 802.11b Linksys wireless router that gave me no signal at all at this location.
Summary: This router is not reliable, crashes all the time and then it failed completely and would even boot - just out of warranty of course!! I'm not the only one with these issues neither - my cousin had exactly the same router and his was also very temperamental and then failed too after less than a year.
Good features but very unreliable in the long term.

Summary: I have been using the N1 Vision since it was launched. It replaced an old BT router\wireless router combo. For the first 8 months or so the router worked perfectly, able to handle everything I threw at it. I don't use it just for access to the internet I have my own server running using the DynamicDNS service and with a PS3, Xbox360, and Wii all going it sees a lot of traffic.
Summary: Ordered yesterday, paid for express delivery, received today. As always Amazons service is amazing! I have 4 belkin routers all linked together and have now decided to replace them with 802.11n routers. The main function that is needed for places I cant cable them up together is the Wireless bridging which this does not support. Therefore it's completely useless to me.
Summary: Very easy to set up, but that's where it ends. Frequent hiccups connecting to the internet, requiring reboots of router and/or modem. Slow reboot time. I eventually got the remote PC's to connect more or less continuously, but I would hardly describe the result as superb. However, the worst part is that it is completely hopeless for streaming videos. I use a PS3 to stream my videos wirelessly from PC to TV.
