Best Buy Customer Reviews
Posted by: MatthewOfTribeca from: New York City on
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.

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!!!!!!

Absolutely the worst!
Posted by: Miyagi09 from: on
Set up wasn't bad but it constantly dropped the signal and areas of our house couldn't even get signal! Returned it in under 48 hours!

I work with technology for long time, and I consider myself a pretty advanced user for all kind of technologies, and one of my favorites is actually wireless.
This is not the first time that I try to get out of Linksys by acquiring different routers from different brands, being very honest I felt on Belkin due to the price, and the promises which were coming together on the box diagrams.
Sounded interesting and pretty atractive.
So, I bought it and took home, put to work and so far so good, the basic was working pretty well.
My first issue, I changed some configurations and by the time that I refreshed the DHCP my computer was gave a different IP address. So I tried to connect again the Settings for the router and for my surprise I received a message saying that a different IP address was already logged as administrator...reset button works pretty well.
Other items that I tried to put to work ndso far a week later couldn't do it, the USB port neither a print or USB storage device were identified.
Network coverage is the same as my Linksys WRT54GS from 4 years ago.

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.

overall good router but has lots quriks
Posted by: besbuyer2 from: ny on
i also found this router a pain to set up and not user friendly at all ..the best way to use this is turn it on and let your computer find it then use the belkin ip address to configure your settings.192.168.2.1..then you have the fun of dealing with the router setup and configuring that they have made more difficult than it needed to be. 40 seconds to apply any changes then if you dont remember to log out you cant log back on it and i found the self healing would screw up my computers with windows 7 every time it ran..thus the reason not to use the cd it puts belkin wireless manager on your computer and now you have two things trying to run your wireless and with my windows 7 computers the self healing would change settings and my computers wouldnt recognize any internet so id have to reset my adapter on the computer to get it working again..i did get it all figured out and the range is very good but if you dont know anything about networking then this router may not be for you..

Router resets/loses connection.
Posted by: djsmoothie from: on
I have never had a problem with any home router that I have bought over the 15+ years I have bought them until this one. This router will reset ( can see router rebooted in security logs ) thus losing the wifi connection. It seems that the router is giving out duplicate IPs. The problem seems to happen more often ( 3 - 4 times a day ) the more devices you have connected. I called Belkin support and they said I had to buy a support contract for them to help me even thou this is absolutely a router problem. ( I am a network Engineer and test routers for a living ). It has a 2 year warranty but good luck with any support. Unless I can get Belkin to fix this problem I am done with Belkin. When I bought it I had a feeling I shouldn't buy Belkin. Guess my head knew what was coming.

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!
