This is one of Belkin's flagship products and as a top of the range product it should be judged as such. That said, it is very competitively priced compared to similar devices from other manufacturers some of which cost several hundred pounds.
The router is very well designed with stylish and attractive looks. The build quality could be a bit better as the construction is almost all of lightweight plastic. It remains to be seen how well the device will fare with long term use in a domestic situation. There are just two front panel lights which indicate power, internet and WPS connectivity status. For a high end device such as this more critical users might have expected to see front panel status lights to show LAN port connectivity. I note too that the router is designed for use only in the vertical position.
Setup is very easy with a CD based wizard to walk you through the connection procedure. More experienced users will find that this is not needed as connecting directly to the router GUI webpage allows for rapid manual setup. All the user needs is the login and password provided by the ISP.
The manual provided is really little more than an expanded setup guide with a troubleshooting guide on the end. The more advanced capabilities of the router are not mentioned at all, this is very annoying for the more geeky users.
In use the router offers a very high speed connection of up to 450Mbps wirelessly for those with hardware to support it and 4 gigabyte LAN ports for high speed cable linkage. These speeds will be a boon to gamers and those streaming HD video.Read more ›
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.
I cheated completely on this. I have neither BT infinity nor a cable connection (which the box states this is designed for). I have been using my Sky modem router with a Netgear Rangemax (great in its heyday, now seriously out of date) piggy=backed onto it simply by connecting it into one of the LAN ports usually meant for a PC or laptop. The sky router fed the signal to the Netgear, which then spread it about my house.
This worked well initially, and over the last year the efficiency of the Rangemax has decreased considerably. This is, I think, completely due to the proliferation of wireless, bluetooth and wifi enabled gadgets in the house.
I took a chance that the Belkin would piggy-back successfully in the same way -and it did!
I now have a reliable and fast wifi signal throughout the house and down to the bottom of the garden (maybe 40 yards from the Belkin), and video and music streaming has improved immeasurably. Media streaming is what this router was designed for, and it does the job well. My Internet radio finds stations very quickly and there is no break in playback -as there was frequently with the old router.
Set up was simplicity itself. I was up and running within 5 minutes. No hardwire connection to a computer needed -with the installation disc in a laptop, full control of the unit is done wirelessly. It provided me with a main network, and a guest network, each with their own passwords. The guest network allows internet access only and no possibility of control of the unit or other networked equipment.Read more ›
