Product Description

Product Description

The Belkin N Wireless Modem Router uses the Wireless N protocol to provide an ultra-fast and reliable wireless network for your apartment or office. Offering outstanding performance, this router can handle the most demanding tasks, letting you stream HD video at the same time your kids are playing online games and sharing photos with their friends.

Connecting the N Wireless Modem Router lets you share your broadband Internet account with all your networked computers. Now you can quickly and efficiently exchange documents, share resources, and stream digital music throughout your network

Smart Design with Wired and Wireless Connections
The Wireless N Modem Router has a striking, vertical enclosure that is both handsome and space efficient. The two built-in external antennas provide a wireless range of up to 1,200 feet and easily covers an apartment or small office. Six LEDs for Security, Wireless, Wired, Router, Modem, and Internet let you know the status of your network at a glance, making it easy to troubleshoot any problems.

Wireless N uses the latest 802.11n Draft 2.0 technology, offering better range and throughput than 802.11g and 802.11b networks. By using smart MIMO (multiple-input and multiple-output) antenna technology, the range of a Wireless N network is extended and can blanket a large home.

With wireless speeds of up to 300Mbps, you won't be waiting for videos to buffer or music to download because your children are playing online games. Wireless N provides more than enough bandwidth to make crystal-clear Internet phone calls, transfer a large amount of photos, and stream movies to your computer without any lag or hiccups.

You can also share networked peripherals such as a Wi-Fi printer, hard drives, and DVDs. If you have some computers that use the older wireless standards, they'll still work because the Wireless N router is backwards compatible with 802.11g and 802.11b devices (though they won't connect at the same blistering speed). For maximum speed and range, Belkin's N Wireless USB Adapter, Notebook Card, and ExpressCard adapter are recommended.

In addition to Wireless N, the router also has four 10/100 Ethernet ports at the back, giving you the option to plug in for a steady and secure, fast connection running at up to 100Mbps.

Thanks to the strong built-in security, including support for WPA, WPA2, Wi-Fi Protected Setup, and 64-and 128-bit WEP encryption, you will be protected from hackers and intruders trying to gain access to your sensitive files. Setting up security is simple, too: just push the Wi-Fi Protected Setup button located on the front of the router. The router also supports VPN for making secure connections between home and office.

Easy to Set Up
Belkin designed the Wireless N Modem Router to be as simple to use as possible. Simply connect your wireless router to your cable or DSL modem, plug the router in, and connect your computer to the router. That's it. To help monitor your network performance and usage, the router includes Personal Network Assistant software, which runs on Windows XP/Vista and Mac OS X 10.4/10.5.

This router also comes with Easy Setup Assistant and troubleshooting with Network Status Display. This Network Status Display shows the status of your network. The icons represent each component of your network and show you whether or not each device is working properly.

The Belkin N Wireless router is backed by a 1-year warranty and includes free 24/7 technical support.

My old setup consisted of the original BT Home Hub version 1.0 (the white box) with BT broadband, and although it worked ok, i knew the speed was an issue and seemed a lot slower than it should have been. I own an Xbox360, PS3, iMac and a laptop so i wanted a new modem router that could cope with this little lot.
Like another reviewer on here, i looked about, did some research and having had a Netgear before (and a somewhat mixed time with it) i decided to go for this Belkin. Fully expecting a day of my weekend taken out trying to get the product to work i was amazed at how easy this was to set up.
One word of warning though, to initially install this modem you need an ethernet cable, which does come in the box, but to fire this thing up and initialize the router, its best just to simply plug it into your pc/applemac right next to where your computer is and not where you might place the modem in the end ie: upstairs, as the ethernet cable is very short.
The instructions are clear, easy to follow, and the install disc which is for both PC and Mac, guides you through the installation process in about 5 minutes. Have to hand your Broadband provider login name and password as the process may ask you for this. It does also ask you for which ports you need, and i just left mine on the suggested ones (there are 2) but it fired up fine. Once you have completed the process and you can access the net (still with the cable plugged in) its then a case of setting up each piece of equipment. I then did the Xbox, PS3, iphone and netbook, and all of them found the Belkin wirelessly no problem. Set them up and you are away. I had no problem with the Xbox or the PS3.

This a very buggy router and I strongly recommend any potential buyers not to buy it. If I try to configure WPA-PSK2 then the router keeps locking up. Even when I configure it using WEP (I would prefer not to as it less secure), the router locks up every 10 days or so and needs a reboot to get it working again. I contacted the Belkin support line and, after much deliberation with their Indian call centre, the support guy agreed with me that WPA-PSK2 wasn't working properly and told me that a senior engineer would call me back to resolve the issue. However, I never received a call back.

The firmware that I have loaded on the router is the latest version (v2.00.20) and this hasn't been updated since October 2009, despite the fact that the router is so unstable.

I have used an older Belkin wireless router for a couple of years which I bought just because it was cheap. It performed quite well but cut out regularly, requiring the time honoured turn it off and on again treatment. Wanting to upgrade to a better router I looked at a alternatives wishing to buy a more 'upmarket' and reliable router. The choices were bewildering. After a month of indecision, a mistaken purchase (thanks to Amazon for their superbly efficient returns service), and a sense of foreboding regarding the trouble of installing another router, always descibed as only a 5 minute job, but which invariably takes 3 hours, my kids were getting impatient for a better router. So to save face if nothing else I had to make a decision. After carefully reviewing models and customer reviews I had to conlcude the Belkin N seemed to offer the best value. So on the allotted D day I pressed the order button and awaited delivery. Several days later it arrived, and still with that sense of foreboding postponed installation for a few days until the weekend, when I would prepare myself mentally for the expected challenging ordeal. Saturday came and went, Sunday morning drifted into that Sunday afternoon lethargy. I could put off the evil task no longer. So with the feeling of a condemned man walking to the gallows I opened the box and began the installation procedure.

It all seemed too easy - all I had to do was plug in the cables, insert the CD abd follow instructions. Well, much to my amazement it was that easy. Just like it says in the blurb within about 10 minutes or so I was up and running on the main PC. That was too easy - laptops won't possibly work. I turned on my laptop and sure enough 'no device available'.

My faithful NetGear G router/modem gave up after 4 years loyal service. But I took the plunge to go for Belkin this time round, mainly due to the life-time warranty... Can't say it was a bad decision.

The Good;

* Clear display
* Price
* Features (port forwarding is better than my old NetGear)
* Life-time warranty
* Local rate support line.
* Manual set-up was straight forward
* Reliable... so far.
* Good wifi GUI on the box

The Bad;

* Range is a let-down; about the same as my old G, but the N is supposed to be far superior. 300 metres on the marketing material is a joke - struggles with 20 metres inside our house (get an Edimax N access point to improve this)
* Set-up software (for the Mac), didn't work. No problem with the manual set-up though.
* Can't remove the base stand, and its not wall mountable!

Summary; After my experience, I still think the Belkin is a good buy.
