    I bought this Router at Walmart after my old DLINK Di-514 802.11B Router was giving me fits especially trying to connect with my new IPod Touch. I had ordered another router on a internet site, but it turned out to be backordered. I bought this Router at Walmart for about $20 more, but it was worth being able to just pick it up instead of waiting on shipping. Setup took about 15 minutes and required a little bit of tinkering with restarting the laptop a few times. I am only using it with Wireless G right now, but the difference is amazing. It has nearly tripled my internet speed on my laptop and the difference on the Ipod is incomparable I am reaching near 6gb (close to Comcast advertised speed) with the laptop and between 1.5 and 3GB with the Ipod. This has been faster than anything I have needed. I have been able to stream video wireless to the Touch and the Laptop while watching Netflix wired to my XBOX. I plan on buying a new Desktop soon and will get a wireless N card for it. I am very pleased with this router.

    I had one Belkin N150 Wireless Router, in the beginning I liked it very much until one day, there was a thunder and after the thunder the Belkin Router was broken(all my neighbors' routers work well). I called technical support and customer support, and was kicked between technical support and customer support like a ball. I just thought the Belkin Router N150 is so vulnerable. Actually the customer support said I was not required but suggested to use the surge protector(this is not in the instructions). So, my suggestion to you who plan to buy Belkin Router is: to buy a surge protector with the router together, or you won't get the warranty.

    Bought this N router to replace our old G router which had security problems and was allowing freeloaders. Took a total of 10 minutes to hook up, set it up, log the laptops on and secure the network. I've done this before, but it seemed like something that a person with little or no experience could easily do. they even numbered the ports to match the 4 steps in the directions. While I didn't have any problem, I looked at the Belkin tech support website re: the lady who said her connection kept dropping. I have a friend with a different router and a similar problem and there's an easy fix. (change the channel setting from auto to a static channel that works). Anyway, we have up to 4 computers at a time on this router and it works fine. I looked around on line and at electronics retailers and at $59, the price is right. Cheaper than many G or the G mimo routers, but supports the newer standard at higher speeds.

    I purchased this router four weeks ago. The setup of this router was relatively easy. The problem is the router locks up and has to be reset daily. I contacted Belkin support on four occasions in an attempt to correct the problem. The Belkin support center must be over - seas. I experienced long hold times, and difficult to understand support representatives (foreign accents, broken English & scripted wisdom only). Ultimately I was advised to return the product to Wal-Mart for an exchange as the problem was "internal".After the exchange, I still have the same issues with the new unit on both wired and wireless connections. This $100.00 unit is going in the trash! The last time I contacted Belkin about the replacement exhibiting the same issues I was advised to send it in at my expense and they would repair or replace the unit in about 3 weeks. I can not stress enough this is not a "reliable" unit by any standard.... DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY ON THIS PRODUCT!!!!

    The short saga: - I bought one of these in October. It worked ~alright, but then suddenly and irretrievably stopped "seeing" the internet in November (i.e. the "internet" light blinked orange and nothing could be done to set it right). I exchanged it straight across for another of the same model. THAT router stopped "seeing" the internet suddenly one Friday night in January. Since it's past the 45-day return date, the second router is now in the trash. Incidentally, I have no ire with Walmart- their return policy is plain. In total, for my $60, I got the use of a finicky router for three months, and I now own a shiny new ethernet cable. Yay! - Now that I have a more expensive Linksys 160 N+ router, I realize that both Belkin routers were very slow at random times, and sometimes took quite a while to link up to the computer. - I know what you're thinking: I should have taken a monetary refund on the first one. Yeah, I should have, but so many of the online reviews were good! - Don't say nobody warned you...

    • A. I need to clarify the "gigabit is everything!!1!" answer below. 1. Gigabit is 1000mb (in theory) 2. 1000mb is 1,000,000kb 3. 1kB = 8kb (approx.) 4. Your DSL or Cable Internet connection most likely does not exceed 20,000kb (or 20mb). If you have FIOS, your down speed may be as high as 50,000kb (or 50mb). 5. 802.11g wireless is 55mb, 802.11n wireless is 300mb (in theory) 6. The connection to any given server is going to be, on average, 200kb (or 0.2mb). I've had may cable connection max at about 900kb (or 0.9mb) to a single server. Most game servers will likely max your speed to ~120kb (or 0.12mb). Note that even your wireless connection speed far surpasses your internet connection speed. This router will not be your slowdown to a PS3 game server. The previous poster is correct about one thing... you'd be surprised as to how much wireless interference is in your house. If your wireless connection seems "flaky", use a different channel (up to 11 different channels, I think).

    • A. Yes it will, but I suggest getting a full gigabit router, and buy a true mimo set-up. You have so much stuff running at different frequencies, you would be surprised what will interfere with wireless reception. In addition, Mimo Gigabit Draft-N setups will be out of date in 8 months, not 3... If you are serious gamer- you need to have full gigabit bandwidth for wired connections- BASIC ETIQUETTE. if not, you will be responsible for lag in your gaming experience... esspecially if you have this wired to a PS3, wireless laptop, and one other wireless device- say blackberry with wi-fi calling... this little router just doesn't have inside to provide smooth fluid gaming.

    • A. Yes! As I am answering this question, I have three laptops going right now with this product, and no problem! There are no dead spots either. It is so easy to set up as well! Plus, if you have VISTA, it is compatable with it!

    • A. According to the spec page (http://catalog.belkin.com/IWCatProductPage.process?Product_Id=461161), this can have 253 connected devices, 16 of which are wireless. In order to maximize the number of connections, you would also need 11 24 port routers, at which point you'd likely break the maximum bandwidth available.

    • A. If you're are up and running, getting wireless service, then anything that is in the area will pick up your wireless service. They may have to sign in to authenticate, but after that, you should have no problem with two laptops going. For example, I have 5 things going now at once wirelessly; 1. Laptop, 2. Wii, 3. PSP, 4. Nintendo DS, and 5. IPOD Touch. All 5 are working fine, but I cannot guarantee that this model will do what it should. I'm now using a NetGear. Hope that helps.
