5.0 out of 5 stars Great AC WIFI, 18 July 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had to change my router position a few months ago and I bought one of these to create a reliable wifi connection from my Netgear Nighthawk AC199 router to my games PC (i5 @ 4.5GHz). It maintained my hard wired download speed of 37Mbps at a distance of about 7 metres through a wooden floor. I greatly increased the 5.0 GHz link speed by not plugging in directly behind the PC but using a 3 metre USB cable to move the device as close to the router as possible. I get a 700 Mbps link.

I bought a second to connect my media machine (Atom @ 1.4 GHz). The internal N WiFi gave me a download speed of only 3. Mbps. The Belkin permitted AC to give a link speed of 468 Mbps and a download of 23.9 Mbps. The connection is at a distance of about 4 metres through a plasterboard wall with the dongle masked by a TV.

These devices provide a strong reliable signal with fast transfer rates.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid Broadband, weaker WiFi, 5 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am on a copper TalkTalk line, about 3.7 km from the exchange. Theory says I should be able to get 5 Mbps ADSL sync speed. I was using a TalkTalk DLink 3780 router, but suffering from masses of dropouts on the broadband line and typically getting about 4 Mbps sync. The Netgear D7000 has not got any more speed but my broadband is now rock solid with no dropouts.

Its WiFi coverage is not quite as good as the DLink it replaced but the 2.4 GHz is perfectly adequate to cover a modest 3 bed detached. I was very disappointed in the 5.0 GHz coverage. That is unusable at about 10 m where the 2.4 GHz is still full speed.

Unlike the Dlink the D700 allows me to define MAC-based access for all my wireless devices (about 15).

The router appears solid and stylish. It was easy to install using the web-based interface. There is a Windows-based Genii program and an Android Genii app. I would ignore them completely. They bring nothing to the party. The web interface is far superior.

3.0 out of 5 stars Started off well but poor ending. Not well written, 29 April 2016

Started off well but poor ending. Not well written. I suspect english is not first language. Needed a thorough editing. There were many many errors where the plot was inconsistent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality device, 10 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I now have three of these devices connected to my media machine running Windows Media Centre. Unlike some other makes of tuner these device drivers are written correctly and multiple devices can be installed. I can simultaneously record three TV channels with absolutely no problems. They don't suffer from overheating problems and are totally reliable.
