Bargain. I've had a similar looking Belkin router well over a year now (Wireless N version), and it's been superb the whole time.

I managed to tolerate a Belkin router for almost a year before replacing it. On anything less then a perfect line they are very unstable. Wouldn't touch one with a barge pole.

Modem and router in one for £7.99, this can't be right :S

Why pay good money for broadband and then knacker it with a Belkin router..they are very poor under load but they do work for light users
banned#10
I might grab one...take it you can use it for standard ADSL phone broadband?

Will it go up to 24mb speeds?

I downloaded multiple TB's of data on mine (so can't exactly be called a light user), and I can't remember any lost connections other than a couple caused by faults on my line oO.

Why are ADSL routers always cheaper than cable ones ?
#17
I have had many of the older belkin routers from a few years ago. Those models were terrible. All of them dropped connections, slow speed once connected and finally overheated and broke, not to mention the problem with orange intertnet in the uk.

I bought the model here for £19.99 when another model broke. It has performed faultlessly since I bought it 2 months ago. IT has never had to been restarted. Have downloaded TBs over upto 10 wifi connections at once. The range is as good as an older router that was n capable.

I suggest buying and not being put off by the older belkin routers. They have changed greatly.

My experience with Belkin products, might as well throw the Belkin router away when you receive it as its cutting out the 'middle man'.

Can you do sechudle of time allowed for internet access and limit specific mac address time online?
I have a teen age soon who is online all time so I am trying to find a way to limiting his gaming online.
cheers,

I've been put off Belkin for life - I bought an N1 Vision modem/router for over £100 - was a big investment at the time. Wireless n and gigabit ports. It never worked properly - it would freeze, crash and slow down. Belkin support didn't want to know. I found a LOT of other people online with the same issues - the router would overheat if the network and ADSL were working under any load. I replaced it with a cheap ADSL modem and SEPARATE gigabit router - a cheaper, easier to upgrade and more stable solution for me.

Belkin? Utter junk. Pay me the £8.99 and I still wouldn't take it.

I'll give you £10.
#24
Gawd, the generalisations! No wonder people get ripped off so much if they rely so heavily on brand names. My only objection to Belkin is that somehow people think it's better than other things.

Anyone tried this with Android phones? My Zoom X6 doesn't like them at all: tends to connect once then has to be re-started before it will connect again.

Remember having loads of problems when I brought this for about £70 years ago, the chips inside are not all the same quality. I had to return it and got a Linksys which has been trouble free.

Looking for a new N-universal router, does anyone know any good offers?
-Saw the similar Belkin one on 7dayshop/Play but not sure about quality

Works well with my BE unlimited

I have three different Belkin network devices, one router and two client adaptors bought over a period of a few years, all are complete crap and don't work.
Yes, but plenty of people on this thread have Belkin network devices which do...
#28
Ordered one of these last time around. It does the job and it's inexpensive. Heat added.

Did you actually read this thread?
As you obviously have a lot of spare time, would you like to make a similar list of people who like these products, and then see if the difference is statistically significant? Or wouldn't that suit your agenda?

You don't need to thanks.

I was asking you to, not offering - obviously an inability to read is a problem we both share.
I'd expect a product to have a person or two dislike it, but when it's half it speaks for itself.
Except it doesn't. Have you not noticed that just a single one of your quotes actually says it applies to the "product" - the subject of this thread? All the rest are just reacting to the brand name. And that rather neatly proves my point.

If it helps, then, I can qualify my comment that dcx quoted.
For the very simple stuff like hubs they are decent. I had a KVM box of theirs which was good too, although setting it up was an exercise in ignoring the instructions and stabbing random plugs in sockets until it worked.

But their networking stuff is really very poor. Honestly, it's best avoided.

I bought one of these last time it was this price, and I have to say that even at this price it's not worth it. Extremely unreliable. Not voted either way, since I admit it's a great price, but it's this cheap for a reason. Avoid!

True, but I'd rather have internet working for a few days incase the main router dies. Which is exactly what happened. Luckily I have a Netgear as backup. But incase my backup dies, then at least I have this one as my backup's backup. ;)

Got the same one. Have to restart it a few times every so often. Wireless would freeze up even after the latest beta firmware update. Managed to get into debug mode, and found my ethernet MTU's are around 1500 when there was talk about it supporting JumboFrames, an email to Belkin had no reply.

No it's died. The power adapter seems to have fried.

Funnily enough it's got all the fancy features, gigabyte seems to produce the desired speeds (questionable info), the wireless signal seems strong, but the speeds are not much better than 802.11g!!
#35
Mine arrived yesterday and was faulty straight out the box - tried resetting it a few times but still not working (power light is flashing constantly like it can't boot itself up - other lights are all flashing too and doesn't light up when an ethernet cable is attached). Luckily Play do a free return, just need to print out a label.

Pss poor though.... :|

£8.99 now :(

£7.99 again :)

Just a note on Belkin, I agree that their older stuff was variable, but the cheap MIMO N router that I've had for a couple of years has been faultless. We have at least 5 or wifi clients (2 PCs, 2 laptops, 2 smartphones, photo frames etc.) connected all the time and use it for BitTorrent, streaming media from one HTPC to another etc. and never have any bother. Much better than BT Homehub (laughable) and the Netgear that preceded it.

Ive set-up two of these , I didn't even realize they were a modem also , I though it was for adsl modems not and actual modem , both are preforming well and give good coverage
#39
Have people received the v2 revision? As thinks that's the latest.

After my experience of a F5D7634-4A-H V2 (flat horizontal unit with no external aerial, but used same firmware) I would check you if you really need this first before buying because it's cheap.

The above model was unable to hold line synchronisation, and then failed to reconnect after entering a loop of retrying and failing. This wasn't connected to the master socket though, but an unmodified Netgear DG834GT that replaced it suffered no issues.

At a different property it has been unable to achieve the same synchronisation as a Texas Instrument AR7 chipset router.

After I tried the router I noticed if power is lost then all device IP addresses are lost, even with lease option set to never forget. So if you have multiple computers connected, unless you turn them on in the same order you originally did (so receive same IP address as previously) then custom firewall rules may be set for the wrong computer. However this won’t be an issue if using a single computer, or never need to add firewall rules.
