Summary: As far as routers go, I have always found that they aren't as easy to set up for the average consumer. Heck, they even have services you can buy. This router doesn't require a genius. I was pleasantly surprised that I was greeted by an internet explorer window that gave me step by step instructions.
Best Wireless N Router I Have Owned; Outstanding Warranty
9 March 2011
Summary: I have had my Belkin N1 since late 2009. It has been rock solid in reliability and has extended range for wireless connectivity. I get strong signals for my laptop & video game system in all levels of my 2-story home (including the basement), as well as out on my deck. My home gets many power brown outs, and until last week, the router would require an occassional reset to clear problems.
Summary: Took longer than expected to arrive, but within the time frame published, so can't complain. Can't tell which version of hardware, but came with latest version of firmware available from Belkin. Ran the CD installation, put the device into the laptop slot, and was connected to the wireless router and internet. That simple. Purchased this unit for the price and the pre-N specifications that match our Belkin pre-N wireless router.
Easy setup, useful display, very good range and speed (ver. 2000, not 1000). See fix for disconnect every 2 hours.

Summary: I suspect most of the people with issues or complaints have version 1000 and / or old firmware. Additionally one needs to use this in conjunction with 802.11n wireless adapters (preferably Draft 2.0 for future upgradeability / compatibility) in order to obtain the maximum benefit out of the router, at least from a wireless performance perspective. I recently purchased version 2000 of the N1 Vision (check the sticker on the bottom of the box).
Summary: I just replaced my Linksys WRT54G with the Belkin N1. I did so because I thought the Linksys was losing range after my home notebook PC routinely dropped its connection speed. Turns out it's my computer's wireless card that's having trouble, but I'm still glad I made the leap to N. Although I can't comment on true N speeds (still need a N card for my PC), the Belkin N1 plays nicely with all of the Wireless G products in the house (3 notebook PCs, a PS3 and a Linksys...
Summary: I'm a guy swept away by cool features ... I only picked it up off the shelf to look at it becuase of the LCD display. Its a really convinient way of getting WAN/LAN statistics on the fly and without logging in. I got online within 10 minutes using the manual setup. I'm personally not one for wizards, I personally think I'm smarter than the products I purchase..
Belkin N1 Vision Wireless Router for Cable Connections

Summary: I have had this for a month now, when its running ok its great, I get 19mb+ through it. It has crashed and locked up about 6 times now and when it does it is not usually just a case of rebooting the modem by disconnecting the power. I end up having to power down the router then the modem, apply power to the modem then the router.
