First of all, I have to emphasise misleading marketing on the part of Belkin. Where this product is described as an N150 router, you would expect speeds of 150mbps, however the router only goes slightly above Wireless g speed, at 65mbps maximum speed.
The router is not 802.11n certified, but in practice, the range and speed are more than satisfactory for a standard ADSL broadband connection. It is certainly a fair bit faster than our old D-Link DSL-G624T router, which reached only g speeds, and began to seem painfully slow at the end of it's useful life.

Yes, it can be temperamental at times, but this doesn't mean you shouldn't buy it. It drops out occasionally but usually reconnects without needing a restart, and for little more than £20, you're not really paying for luxury, it's just a low shelf bargain!

For a basic internet connection, the speed you get most of the time is brilliant, the range is good and the level of security on the router almost reaches overkill, with the ability to make your network almost completely invisible by hiding the SSID (network name), MAC Address filtering so that only the devices you specify can access your network, even if someone else has entered the correct password. On top of all this there is a strong firewall, external ping blocking, WPA password protection and a temporary security log. Basically, it creates a "brick wall" between your network and unwanted intruders - extremely secure!

Overall, for the low price, you get a myriad of security features, dual-band wifi for higher bandwidth devices (you'll only be interested in this if you're a more advanced user), and something else equally technical - the ability to permanently lease IP addresses to wireless devices. This basically means that the space set on the router for wired/wireless devices is less likely to run out, as only a single IP address is leased once to each device.

For the fairly advanced features on the router, it is definitely worth it's weight in gold. I'd struggle to find something else that is equally advanced for the same price. Buy it now and you won't be disappointed, especially for the money you're spending.

this was a breeze to setup i stopped after setup with ethernet cable and set up two laptops by wi-fi , i wanted to leave main desktop wired just in case but none of the computers have had a problem what so ever . so glad i bought it i will say this though make sure all your pcs are in tip top condition , no virus or malware been defraged and this goes for all electrical items please buy new not the cheaper used ones .
we live in a large house and the range of signal is very good .
make sure it is the ADSL one you want though

I've got a small flat and this was just perfect. I had a little niggle with the installation but was quickly sorted out by the Belkin technical support in the US as the UK one was closed. I have noticed my connection is much faster!. Good value for money.

Bought this thinking ok cheap but should do what it says. Arrived from Pure - did not work, could not connect to the phone line, so I rung my internet provider, everything fine this end. Rung Belkin, went through lots of stuff - does not work send it to Belkin we will replace it! This is all on the first day of getting it. My second one has arrived, set it up hey its fine, can get wireless on iPod and laptop, PC connects with wired! cool. Or so I thought. It will connect but don't ever try to use the web for longer than 30 seconds as it will disconnect. I have rebooted it, reinstalled it, turned it on and back on again. Utter rubbish and not worth the frustration. Take note of the 1 star reviews, I didn't as I thought they all can't not work!!

For the price you can't go wrong with this router . Much faster than the standard Dlink router that came with TalkTalk package and good to have Belkin quality . Recommended

Easy to set up but is temperamental, stops working all of a sudden and you have to switch it on and off never had this problem before with my last wireless. Done a google search on problems with this modem found lots of bad reviews however i cant compare if this is the same with other brands.

Bought this equipment from Pure products late October 2011 and ever since it arrived I had repeated periodic drop outs of service. When the router eventually died altogether in mid-February I contacted the seller via Amazon twice to request a refund and didn't even receive a reply. AVOID ANY DEALINGS WITH THEM.

The Belkin N150 Wireless router is very easy to set up. It is compact and takes up very little space although I found it a bit light and could knock it over easily. There is no built in modem as with my other Belkin router however I would recommend Belkin routers on the whole as their technical support people are great at getting you going again should you encounter any faults.
