I finally decided to get rid of DSL and buy the triple threat Time Warner Cable package. The internet was only $10 extra, while my DSL was costing $60 from Verizon.
I'm serious about my internet needs and did a ton of research on a new router. The key elements for me were price, performance and easy installation.
And even after my research, I was prepared to be unhappy with my purchase decision had it failed across any of these 3 criteria.
Results: Fantastic speed, literally 4.5Xs faster than my old DSL router/service. Check.
Price was actually more than I wanted to pay but the package had a very helpful comparison chart on the back...and so the benefits to the dual band and 4-USB ports etc..while not their most expensive, seemed to be what I needed. Check.
The set-up was automatic and couldn't have been easier. One con is, to change the Network Name and the password it came with seemed like too much of a bother, so I used theirs. In the scheme of things, that's OK...the whole family has switched-over to this network and all is golden.
Definitely worth your consideration.
Try it...you'll like it...

Great router, provided you have a fast ISP
Posted by: from: Chicago, IL on
I would recommend this to anyone looking for a dual band router to use in a 2k square foot home. It took about 10 minutes to set up and so far not one hiccup (2 months). The router is located in my basement (due to At&t) and my wife can stream netflix on her iPad on the 2nd floor without a problem, though there can be a few slow downs during high traffic times. Also, keep in mind that your service provider will dictate your internet speeds, don't go off router speeds as a base of judging the router itself.

Quite a step up from the free Xfinity router
Posted by: from: Vancouver, WA on
We were using the free router that Xfinity provides, but our house is large and we have gaming cosoles and computers on both floors and on opposite ends of the house. The Xbox was lagging, the wireless computers were slow. I bought this router today, set it up easily, and things are much faster now. Streaming Netlix on the wireless PCs is fast, and no game lagging on the PS3 or Xbox 360. They even put the name and passphrase on a little card so you don't have to squint over the back of the router and read the key code. It comes with a guest name and passcode as well for visiting friends that need a wi-fi connection. The USB port for your printer is great, so now we can all print from anywhere in the house. Love it!

Great router for the price .
Posted by: Twitchy666 from: Farmingville NY on
I picked up one of these routers for a friend earlier this afternoon for her apt . Found it a breeze to hook up and install .
Only took me 15 mins. start to finish .
Not one hang up .
The performance is great for the price also .
If you want a router that can handle four devices at a reasonable price that has a good amount of performance ?
Go check out the Belkin N600 Dual-Band Wireless-N+ Router .
Good bang for the buck .

Great Speed - Set Up Not for Amateurs!
Posted by: DeeKoay from: on
I have noticed a definite increase in speed over my network and a dramatic decrease in lost connectivity. However, the setup process is not intuitive and often confusing.
For some reason this router also seems to cause the wireless hardware in laptops to turn off occasionally when the laptop is put to sleep or shut down, requiring it to be turned back on by pushing the wireless button on the function keys. It happens rarely with all three laptops in my home, but it is something that never happened with my previous wireless routers.
I am disappointed that my printer does not seem to work with it although it has a USB port for printers. Although the router software tells me the printer is connected, it does not seem to be able to set it up and gives no error message to explain why.

Bought this for a two story home, but strength wasn't what I thought it would be. Still had to purchase a range extender to get the performance and range I wanted.

Don't Buy This!
Posted by: Mike1701 from: on
I'm on wireless router number 4 over the years, being a previous owner of Netgear, Linksys, Dlink and now Belkin. Less than 24 hours after acquiring the Belkin N600 've already decided to return it and buying a Dlink!.
The N600 can't connect to one of my PCs (which has previously been connected to a Dlink) and there is very little debug available on it(no link lights even). Also by default it creates separate subnets for wired vs Wifi devices and they can't talk to each other. Thus, that shared network printer is only accessible by a some devices. There doesn't seem to be a way to change the WiFi IP address pool.
And unlike other routers ,you need a CD to get access to the admin web site on it.
Wireless routers should be painless but this one isn't!!!!!!

I purchased the Belkin 600 because of the good ratings, claimed speed and improved range. However, the speed and range is less them my old $30 link sys wireless router. Within 20 feet the signal is quite strong and the speed is adequate although no faster. Beyond 20 feet the signal drops off rapidly as does the speed. Another blip in the product is that it frequently need to be reset. I never had to do this before. I have the device connected to high speed TWC access, so that is not the problem. I am very disappointed with the performance of the product and would not recommend it to others.

Product failed in less than three months.
Posted by: N600htr from: Northville, mi on
Unit failed within three months of use. Best Buy would not accept a return. Despite the fact that it is warrantied for two years, Belkin is giving me a major run around so that they can replace it with a "refurbished" unit. Stick to Netgear. I will in the future.

Decent product at an affordable price
Posted by: ewgino from: Monterey, CA on
I was excited to find dual band with great range and usb at half the cost of the competition. Setup wasn't quite as simple as it was described on the box so have someone on hand that knows a little bit about wireless routers.
Security seems robust, range is solid and still have yet to try the hard drive and wireless printing. All mobile devices and computers got connected.
