The good:
Looks beautiful.
Easy to configure.
Good wireless range.

The bad:
Despite the good look, it "feels" a little cheap.
Client names only appear in the list if the internal DHCP server is used (otherwise you get "unknown", followed by the last quad of the IP, so at least you can still see the bandwidth use per device).
I think there's a problem with LLTD on the wireless end (more about that later).

Thoughts:
I bought this router to replace my old faithful LinkSys. My LinkSys worked fine, but didn't support wireless-N, and although I don't (currently) have any wireless-N devices, I was hoping wireless-N would give me better range on wireless-G devices.

I'm always one for gadgets, so the display on the N1 really caught my eye. To be honest, there isn't any great advantage on seeing Internet bandwidth usage on the router, but hey, it's neat right?!

Despite the great looks of this device, in person it actually feels a little cheap. Very plastic despite being quite heavy for a router. Nevertheless, I don't think this distracts too much from the looks. Setup was a breeze. It comes with a setup CD, although I didn't bother taking it from its sleeve, preferring to setup the router manually using the excellent web interface. Belkin, like many other router manufactures unfortunately feel the need to leave devices like this wide open by default, so the system ships with no administration password, and no encryption on the wireless site. However, these are both easily configured.

I was pleased that the range of this router is certainly better than my old Linksys "G" device. Even using my laptop, I can now stream video via 802.11g from any room in the house, which wasn't always possible previously.

I have had this router for the past 1 year and below are my observations as compared to my previous Netgear DG834g router.

(after installing it, I upgraded to the latest firmware 1.00.15)

+VE
- It looks stylish
- The front display is useful for quick information e.g. watching upload and download speed.
- The guest SSID is a great idea (but I can't get it to work)
- I use it with a G card and the range / signal has improved as compared with my old Netger DG834g.

-VE
- The odd stand makes it VERY difficult to attach / stick it to the wall (as routers are always recommended to be kept at the highest part one the wall)
- It does not e-mail security logs
- The front main login page displays ALL your router information (all IP information, SSID, Serial #,etc), meaning if you turn on Remote Management, anyone with your IP address and WITHOUT your password can still see your router / network configuration?!?!?!
- You can't assign DHCP IP addresses based upon MAC addresses, meaning you need to hard code the IP address on the computer if you want it to retain them. That means before you reset your router or firmware upgrade, you need to make sure all the IPs are hard coded in the devices otherwise all the network IP mappings will change.
- The download / upload display screen freezes atleast once a week and I need to reboot it to work again.
- The router drops network connection through out the day...at first I only noticed this when I connected my PS3 over wireless, since that day I have also noticed connections being dropped to all my devices.
- Support provided for this product from India is as useful as a swimming pool without water. I have called them about 3 times and all they make me do is reset my router to factory settings, or install a new firmware, neither has fixed any of my problems.

my verdict...it might be an idea to stick with Netgear.

Verified Purchase
Very easy to set up, but that's where it ends. Frequent hiccups connecting to the internet, requiring reboots of router and/or modem. Slow reboot time.
I eventually got the remote PC's to connect more or less continuously, but I would hardly describe the result as superb.
However, the worst part is that it is completely hopeless for streaming videos. I use a PS3 to stream my videos wirelessly from PC to TV. I was able to establish the connection, but it would drop out after a few minutes, and the PS3 would simply find no media server at all. I played with all sorts of configurations, including the DMZ and port-forwarding to fixed DNS, but nothing worked any better than anything else.
The USB dedicated dongle BELKIN CORPORATION Wireless N1 USB Adapter can register speeds of up to 300MBS, but this drops immediately to about 17MBS as soon as you put any kind of load on the system.
Extremely disappointing.

I bought this as a replacement to an earlier Belkin product. I have Virgin media which has a wired network through a router. I then had an access point to establish a wireless network for my lap top. Range and reliability were limited so I wanted a single product which would allow me a wired network router for my desktops and also a powerfull wireless network for my lap top. This does both and I can now use my laptop at the bottom of my garden some 100ft away from the unit. It also provides a very reliable & fast connections and through put.
Simply put, it's a fast improvemnt on the old belkin unit i had and set up was easy.
