watch out though - it's a router only, not a modem/router
#2
it's been £50ish on amazon for while. so not that hot
#3
would have been hot(ter) if it was the ADSL (o2, bT etc) and not DSL (cable)

However still a great piece of kit! looks very high tech and does the job, also you can setup up 2 different SSID's, one with easy password for guests and other for yourself! the guest SSID limits network access e.g. router settings so your guests\kids can't mess with them and break it! lol

So still voted hot

Think there's somewhere else selling it cheaper (or they were last week) than that - think it was £39.99. Wish I could remember who it was - think it was ebuyer or scan.

I wouldn't buy one of these again (I had the ADSL version). I ended up taking it back to PC world after 51 weeks and they gave me a full refund. Basically whenever I streamed anything big (media or copying large files to NAS) through it it crashed and a power cycle was the only was to fix it. This was almost a weekly occurrence which I *could* live with as I knew the trigger. However the really annoying part was that it randomly dropped connection to the internet even know the DSL connection was up. Again after a reboot the problem magically resolved. I was always hoping that there would be a firmware upgrade that would resolve my issues, but it never came. I Googled the issues and people were experiencing the same issues as me too. The breaking point was when I started working from home - the average daily reboot rate when I was working from home was about 6. Now this was annoying! I ended switching to using my 2-3 year old Linksys WAG325n and all my problems went away. I spoke to Belkin and they wouldn't acknowledge any issues with this device and told me that because it was less than 1 year old I had to speak with the store i bought it from. So crap customer services too. Also, the unit itself was a lot bigger than I expected.

I work in R&D for an internet security company and I am pretty competent in this area, so I know for a fact that everything was set up appropriately.

Just thought I'd share this with you.

You're the first person I've seen mention a streaming problem with their router. I have the Linksys WAG320N and this suffers from the same problem over Gigabit ethernet when streaming HD MKV's or full BD movies over my network. It's got to the point now where I more or less just reboot the router before watching a movie.

Tell me about it - the functionality was nice on the N1, but when it cant do its main job - routing traffic, it is unusable.

The last 2 Belkin wifi products I purchased were taken straight back to PC world, I struggled to get a connection to laptops in the same room!. Went back to the free netgear router and all was well.
#11
Im selling mine for no other reason it wouldnt allow me to vpn into my network. For anyone with an Iphone not on vodafone or 3 will know why! (no bbc iplayer access) Ive not had the problems experienced here. Maybe a firmware update might have helped?

If anyone is interested please check here. Only £30:

can't even assign IP addresses to devices using MAC addresses.

From my experience the latest Belkin router software is terrible I got a Belkin N+ that had PC Pro awards and all kinds of stuff and it just never worked properly

- uPnP didn't work
- DHCP didn't work
- Wireless intermittantly failed
- didn't support localhost
plus much more
