1.0 out of 5 stars Disaster, 24 April 2006
This review is from: Belkin F5D8630uk4A ADSL2+ Router with Modem * MIMO (Electronics)
After suffering with a slow and unstable router for over a year, I decided to buy the Belkin Pre-N ADSL Router because it promised the best performance on the market, especially considering I already had a Pre-N notebook card. Unfortunataly, what I experienced was woefully short of the standard you'd expect for such a 'premium' product.

The first router I attempted to set up totally failed to beam out a wireless signal. When I had it replaced, the situation unfortunataly became more frustrating. This time, the router initially worked fine but as the hours passed by it would get slower and slower until it eventually stopped completely, requiring a complete hardware reset.

Searching though a few online forums has revealed this problem appears to be worryingly common. It may simply be due to early teething problems with Belkin's firmware, however given the price of the product I do not consider this acceptable.

My advice is that if you're considering buying a top of the range router then hold off for a few months until the full 802.11n protocol is adopted. Otherwise go for one of the cheap but reliable 802.11g routers on the market.
