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.
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.
Summary: Got this along with 4 of the USB adapters, (already wrote their review (1 star)) This was not an easy transition from my 'G' network as I hoped, and most of it had to do with the USB adapters being bad. My Issue with this is that it will lock up about 1 to 2 times a week.
Summary: It's a great looking product for sure, best in class. The router incorporates broad and unique security features. The best for me has been the guest access key which I give out to visitors then change frequently allowing me to keep my core security separate.
Sexy and cool, but has technical problems with VPNs

Summary: This router is sexy and cool, no doubt. The LCD makes a nice clock, and you can watch your upload and download speeds. :-) The fun stops when you deviate slightly from typical home use and try to connect to your office VPN (virtual private network).
Summary: I read many reviews and many said this product has problems and Belkin support sucks, yet I was doubting what they are saying because this router IS expensive, I thought how come Belkin would manufacture such expensive product and be that lousy....? But...
Summary: No good for a MAC. The Belkin N1 Vision router works really well and fast IF the SECURITY is DISABLED. Once security is turned on the download speed dropped 95% from 4800 kb to 156 kb. Upload speeds were 450 kb. I have called technical support several times have a reference number.
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...
Excerpt: This thing is perfect for everyday use in a laptop, i can anywhere in my space, including my garden and still get the strongest connection possible this is due to the fact that my wireless sender only sends 54m/s with this taken into consideration the range is fantastic and the speed is way higher...
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.
