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: 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.
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.
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.
Summary: This router is very stylish looking. Apart from that it's a normal wireless router, except for the fact that it crashes/freezes too often to make it in any way reliable. Avoid - go for something cheaper and more basic that'll never crash or freeze. Preferably without the word Belkin on the front.
Summary: I bought this router on the strength of a number a of reviews but unfortunately it proved maddening. For almost a month I tried to get consistent performance from it before sending it back and plumping for a Netgear solution instead.
