    Terrible

    We recently moved and changed internet providers so we needed to purchase a new router. Unfortunately, we chose this one. From the beginning it had weak signal compared to anything we have owned in the past. This was not mere speculation, it was confirmed using a wifi signal analyzer. Sometimes performance would fall to the point that Roku and Chromecast were unable to load anything. More often, the videos load slowly and have cruddy resolution. Calls to Belkin "support" were nothing more than painfully useless calls to India. Finally, after much frustration our neighbor lent us a Linksys to see if things improved. They did, it was like night and day. Strong signal all over the house, streaming video loading smooth as silk. Everything we had known prior to being introduced to Belkin. Going to try and return the Belkin atrocity to Walmart. It is beyond the 30 day electronic return window but who knows. The important thing to learn from all of this is that you really don't want to buy this router. Seriously.

    Another bad experience

    Third Belkin router and I have now learned my lesson. Started with N150 that quit after 7 months. Went completely nuts and even a hard reset did not wake it back up. Switched to a N600 to connect a printer to the Network. Worked for about 4 months then performance issues and outages. Confirmed with Cox that it is the router issue - hardwired into the modem performance is top notch. No system settings have been changed on the router and it is on a timer that resets it every night from midnight until 630am. Machines in the wireless net are 4 windows PCs and 2 mobile phones. PCs are win XP, 7 and 8 Beta and the phones are android and wp7.5 I would not recommend this one and I will stay far away from Belkin. I am servicing a few clients with their networks and will not use Belkin. Oh - also - initially used the help desk with the N150 but the lady spoke such bad English that I just thanked her and gave up. Unable to deal with.

    Less then one day of useage

    I purchased this as we have multiple gamers in the house and needed something decent, after plugging it in, it solved our issue with the wireless router we had previously had and everything worked great for no longer then 1 day. I had used it for gaming and on my desktop I did run into an issue where it wouldn't allow me to connect to my game and figured it may be my computer, I reinstalled the game and encountered the same exact issue. I then went to play the same game on my laptop, but the exact same issue rose where I could not connect, so I switched to our old router and I was able to connect. Finally I reset the router and it fixed everything and worked fine on other computer except my desktop. I played 2 games of it on my laptop, then it disconnected me from the game completely from any source I tried to play the game on. Then I went down stairs to find that the router was showing a Red and Purple light, Red for WPS, and purple for the main power light. I tried unplugging but nothing solved the problem. I am returning the product and and will be purchasing an alternative. If it can't last one day, I would be very upset if it died after the return policy ended.

    Slow speed tests

    My Belkin N600 router didn't come with an "Easy Setup CD" like the description says. The initial setup page did not want to save and reboot the router every time I tried to save it (In Firefox), but I was able to manually navigate to a working router configuration page (http://192.168.2.1) where it would work properly. For the first few days I experienced multiple wireless disconnects every day, but it always reconnected quickly. The problem was with the "wireless channels" being left on "auto". So I configured 2.4ghz to channel 11 and 5ghz to channel 161 and since then it hasn't disconnected at all. I can not say much about the dual band feature, because I don't know if any of my devices support 5Ghz. Without the router: I can get wired speed tests in excess of 120Mbps with my 100Mbps 'as advertised' connection with new cat-6 cables. With the router: The wired connection speed tests drop to only 53Mbps, and wireless speed tests are only 35Mbps at 12 feet away. I checked all 3 of my cat-6 cables separately and they can all reach 120Mbps without the router, so it is not a bad cable issue. It is not a firewall issue either, I disabled them both temporarily (router and system) and it made no difference. Moving the router to a new location away from other appliances didn't help either. The only reason I am keeping it is because I don't have the time or money to invest in a better router right away, and this one seems reliable enough (after tweaking) to keep using for now.

    Great product, Great price

    I was a little hesitant to purchase this after reading some of the negative reviews, but now that I got it; I'm so glad I went ahead with this. It is super fast and works very stable with our setup (1 desktop computer, 2 laptops, wireless HDTV, wireless digital receiver, xbox 360 live). I highly recommend it.

    Easiest setup ever!

    One of the best things I found about this product is that it came delivered almost secure. You still should set an administrative password, but it's nice that if you just want to plug it in and go, it will do exactly that. The written instructions were all-but non-existent and that was a good thing because I would have ignored them anyway.

    Works Great with my cable modem!

    The setup was fairly easy. I had a little difficulty because the guy who installed my cable modem and phone system did it wrong and the phone system and cable modem were shorting out. After another technician repaired everything the Belkin N600 DB worked great. It comes with security ready to run but, not trusting that I changed the password. I wanted to change the name of the network but, the instructions were scant and I have decided I will wait until I have some time to give it more thought. My laptop connects beautifully and never drops, disconnects and has only needed to be reset once (after a thunder storm). I bought a Belkin Wireless USB Network adapter to make my desktop computer connect to the network. It connected real easily but, there is a little quirk. Both the router and the USB network adapter are dual band so it sees the N600 as having two networks with which to connect. It doesn't want to connect to the higher band but does connect to the lower one. Anyway everything is working great including my laser printer which is a shared printer connected through the desktop computer.

    Excellent for home wireless network

    I needed a router so I could access my internet from my wireless devices. After extensive research I decided this router would give me the range I needed. It gives me the ability to watch streaming videos on my TV and gives me wireless access to my E-reader. Had some minor issues getting it to connect to my computer. All were handled by Belkin support and it has been working fine ever since. I would recommend this to anyone wishing to set up their own Wi-Fi network.

    Gives some extras but missing some standards

    For only being around seventy dollars, this router seemed like a good buy. It is hard to find routers in this price range that have dual band and a usb port for connecting a printer or some storage. I bought this assuming it would have dhcp ip reservation, and was surprised when it didn't. Latest firmware has no change/update that adds this functionality. The surprise comes from ip reservation being available on a much cheaper router I have that I was replacing with this one. Connectivity seemed ok, and any speed issues seem to be resolved with the latest firmware (according to other reviewers). If you don't need ip reservation (I do), this may still be a decent router for you, given the usb port and dual band capability.

    Easy, Easy set up

    This is my third router and it was by far the easiest set up I've encountered. Plug it in, follow the instructions and that's it. I woud say I had it up and running successfully in less than 10 minutes. Runs PS3 online flawlessly. I've noticed no lag at all. Totally and completely satisfied with this product and would recommend without hesitation.
