5.0 out of 5 stars Plug and play - simple but effective!, 6 Oct 2011
This review is from: Belkin Wireless N600 Dualband Router DSL (Cable Line) (Electronics)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Im not a tech head by any stretch, so the simplicity was the first thing I liked about this: It did need an update thing doing but so much does these days that thats really not a bother (and I found it a nice simple painless process; nothing like the nightmare I had trying to update the driver for my wireless mouse and keyboard where you have to simultaneously press three buttons, stand on one leg, click "go" look the other way and sing Saturday Night by Whigfield backwards and in French, or anything weird so yup - good)

Its replacing my house-mates old router which really he didnt think needed replacing - his worked, but t'internet in our house was always pretty sluggish even with broadband, so I felt new and shiny must be better than old and dusty...

Once operational, we had full bar strength wireless signals throughout the 3 floors of the house (it being placed in the middle pretty much), and I may be under something of a placebo effect but everything seemed faster too.
Its currently supporting wifi to two PCs, a laptop, 3 games consoles and two smart phones - many running at the same time and nothing lagging (as previously said, Im not a techy, so maybe this is expected - but I was pleased). Love it.

If I have ONE complaint - and this is being ever so picky - its the design. It looks very swish in the picture - monolithic, shiny, stylish: and in the flesh, yes it is a nice looking unit, but its very unstable (although its light, I think the base is too small for the height) and has "BELKIN" tattooed on the flanks in a very non discrete way. Why? I know its a belkin, it says so on the box - so whats with the branding? Ah well - its not as if you cant hide it away, so ultimately this is just me being picky.

Other than that its fantastic; does its job very well and doesnt seem too pricey compared to some other routers, so Id fully recommend it.
