Misleading to put £17.99 in the deal title when the deal price is £25.99 - but it's a good price.

it's not to bad for cheap router, but it's worth the extra cash to get one with gigabit ethernet, saves a lot of time on home networks.

Very misleading title?

I know that but the convention on this site is to put retailer and price i n the deal title. It is misleading.

In that case, try and get the actual price added too. IE:

Can anyone recommend a reasonable wireless-N & gigabit ethernet one?

I'd like to get rid of my crappy BT Homehub but don't want to spend too much and I thought they cost a lot more than this.

All depends on what requirements you have.

Do yourself a favour and a buy a second hand Netgear from ebay. You'll find many are new/nearly new and you'll get one for a fraction of the price that you would pay elsewhere.

Don't be taken in by the geeks who'll say that you need a top spec and the latest router which is complete overkill for most peoples requirements.

Unfortunately I agree with this. My Belkin N Router has seen just one firmware update (more than a year ago) despite ongoing problems. The DNS server completely stops responding at times meaning I've had to configure manual settings on my machines.

In response to a wireless N and gigabit router I'm also interested. They seem to start at around £100 which is far too much for my budget. It would be so much cheaper to get a normal wireless G with gigabit router and then add a gigabit switch but I don't have the space for that either.

I'm with you on this - I had a Belkin N router (not this model) and it was the worst router I've even owned, terrible under load I replaced it with a D-Link one and it's 10x better

No Belkin product I've ever bought proved satisfactory - I just avoid them like the plague now.

Well choose your inards carefully as they are shared within manufacturers commonly.

Firmware and housing design aren't. So dropouts and heat dissipation vary even with largely the same hardware.

of course, however user error blocking the vents usually accounts for most heat drop outs.

Belkin are no worse than Dlink or Netgear. In some aspects belkin implementation of firmware is superior to Netgear, eg Upnp although sometimes flawed on the belkins the Netgear implementation is so bad .well upto dg834n as I gave up after that £136 worth of junk.

I had a Belkin router for 2 years - during that time they never updated the firmware despite the fact that it was full of bugs and the load sharing was rubbish. Dlink and Netgear produce better hardware and bother to support the firmware afterwards.

No they don't. They still don't care once they got ya cash which is why the Netgear 834/ 834 gt/ 834n never got a proper upnp (unofficial firmware is better apparently)

I know how bad support can be for all of them as I have modem/routers from all of them actually have about 30 modem routers from the past 9 years inc a pci adsl modem from Mexico. Dlink replaced one of my routers no problem, asking them for firmware to fix issues though is a different matter/ just escalates it to support level xx(∞).

Belkin have replaced my modem routers without hassle and have had decent support, linksys support was terrible , xyxel support was OK Netgear was terrible. 2wire I have had no need to ask, dunno what tplink is like as ain't opened it.

Which model belkin was it btw. ?>
