Could I plug this into an o2 router to take advantage of the draft N for squeezebox (that I'm looking at buying) or would thw o2 (II) box work wel enough as is?

Good price for a Wireless N router with Gigabit ports.

Which Squeezebox? I think they all have 802.11g so an N router isn't much advantage.
#4
+1, good price, but i've owned one of these routers and it has too many issues, ended up selling it on fleabay when i got a replacment.
#5

Great specs but the router is unstable. Sold mine and bought a Netgear - no more problems!
#6
poor piece of kit, don't recommend. Looses wireless connectivity every couple of weeks, requiring soft and sometimes hard reset. Won't switch to N mode because of all the G mode traffic in our house.

Which netgear. I am looking for a dual band (simultaneous) with gigabit switch and modem, but I dont think they exist? I am looking at the WNDR3700... you dont have this by chance?

I have a pair of Edimax BR-6574N routers which are rock solid - I've never needed to reboot them - 300MBps Wireless N and 4 Gigabit ports.

Interesting... but are they dual band?
#10
Are these more reliable than the older Belkin G routers, F5D7230 etc? Good price none the less.

I got this router and its the best router you can get!! It allows you to change the MAC ADDRESS without any restrictions!! Works great on Virgn Media 50MBS!!
I have to say that the firmware update only works via ethernet and not though wireless!!
This is a secure method protection, Belkin have done!
banned#13
Also I missed out. If you been banned from a website or a torrent site for not seeding changing your mac address in matter of minutes is always great!!
#14
So it works ok for you without the frequent drop outs etc?
banned#15
Yeah it works great!! My girlfriend has 1 of these routers as well, older version but the same, Older version takes longer to boot up but apart from that it works great! Best thing to do is upgrade the firmware on the router when you get it!
Also the reason why routers sometimes cut out is because your overlaping the download speed or the upload speed and it trips the router out and you have to reboot it. I've noticed this happen before but not on cable virgin only on crap talk talk... Virgin media and this belkin N1 is perfect!!

Voted HOT btw considering I paid £100 for mine a year ago!!

You must have a faulty router then! Because I got 1 and have had no problems, my girlfriend has one she has no problems either!!
I guess you have a Virgin Media connection?? Trie going to Restore Factory Default or Restore Previous Settings once you updated the firmware. Follow the steps.

well , got same, like a factory firmware, this one is WELL KNOW, because it gots droputs each 2 hours, becouse router is connecting to time server, and during or after router drops connection to internet. u just didnt notice that, becaouse u didnt download files up to 2 hours. only way to solve is :I'm not going to take credit for this .. some guys over at DD-WRT forums obviously know what they are on about managed to at least give the system a little more relaibility.... heres howI will assume that you have the default address for your router (192.168.2.1)log into your router then go to this address ... http://192.168.2.1/wukongjiuwo.html You should be shown a hidden page which has some arrows on it .. basically you can manipulate the screen on the router from here .. why this isn't part of the functionality i'm not sure Underneath there is a consol .. in the box type "ps" ... just the letters not the inverted commas. then press enter ...You should now be presented with a number of services that are running . The apparent problem with the NTP thread or SNTP ( Network Time Protocol)This is believed to be the culprit , whereas it pings an address .. if the address does not respond then the router will hang. Obviously disabling the ping may cause time issues in days or weeks to come but a small price to pay.The idea is to kill the NTP process .. different routers have different process ID's for the service so you will have to search down the list.. mine was 378 but it may be different for yours. To kill the process simply type Kill < whatever your process ID is >As suggested before mine was 378 .. so I typed Kill 378 then hit enter. but its not working for me.some links about same problem http://www.dslreports.com/forum/r20719047-ProblemBelkin-N1-Vision-disconnects-on-a-2hour-intereval~start=40http://kaz911.blogspot.com/2008/03/belkin-n1-vision-review-tale-of-no.htmlhttp://www.dslreports.com/forum/remark,21538367and a lots unhappy stories .. just google it



I'm sorry to say this but everything you have said above is false about the router tripping out!!
I download more then you could ever imagine!!
I download about 15GB's a day!
I download from private servers from a high seedbox with a very high rate of download speed!
I can download at 6.2MBs on a torrent. I can download about 5GBS in 10 minutes and 2GB in about 2 minutes!!
I personally think you have messed about with the settings or have a faulty batch router!!


Some routers dont get on with some service providers!! I don't know what service provider your on!! Enlight me.

u just didnt notice that, becaouse u didnt download files up to 2 hours.

How can you say that?? If only you knew me!!
I think it could be the client you are using to download things from, or the server website?
Or your setitngs you played about with!
I leave my client applcation on when iam seeding and it goes upto 250kbs. I've had no trip outs at all!!
Tell virgin media to upgrade your modem! Thats a common problem with virgin media on some of there modems they provide end up going faulty, with the sync light flashing etc...

virgin cable mate. after 12 years in IT i havent problems with routers at all, previous linksys worked without any problems at all, 24/7 for a 3-4 years, installed many brands and a lots of routers. . try to download from server where resume is not supported. try to ping one address for a 2 hours and ull see. all u wrote is all right but all of that depends on provider link. u can get nearly same amounts of downloads with standard router with 100MB ethernet link.

and calculations :

if u are on virgin cable 50MB u can get maximum speed 50MB/s, that means theoreticaly 6.25mb/s, that means maximum download amount per 10min is 3.75gb, in 2 min 750mb

well, and torrents are using segment downloading, that means each file could be 8gb is devided with 2000 and each segment got 4mb, that means from each user u are downloading just part, and after that another part.

we are getting far away from the router, but im really recommend not to buy this one, better choice for cable.. for me is Linksys by Cisco WRT320N Dual-Band Wireless-N Gigabit Router, cost just 20£ more.

I can post some screenshots up of the speeds - GBS I can download and show you but its abit of topic and I might get a warning by the mod!
I've noticed that my Girlfriends N1 router boots up slower then my N1 router at home. My girlfriend has a older boot version on her router so thats most probably why!!
Have you tried to update your router with the latest firmware? bit of a stupid question but curious!
Have you tried downloading for over 2 hours with another router and using the same setup and IE or application?? I've downloaded from allover the place mate for more then 2 hours before and never had a problem! But I would never download from places like limewire etc... And when I have it was only a small file.
I've never find ethernet to trip the router out if in any cases its always the wireless that does that. But I've never had a trip out. When the electric goes and I have to re-boot the belkin router with my Virgin modem then sometimes it does play up and I have to let the virgin modem sync before I can connect the router again but thats a normal thing for all routers I've find... If this N1 belkin router on hotukdeals is a newer batch then I dont see a problem with it! The links you posted was of comments in 2008 when the router just came out. People have said that the problem is solved after a UK new firmware update.

yes, ive tried, belkin was able produce just beta firmware, F5D8232 N1 Vision version 1 - Pre Release Firmware , and that one got problems with wireless. U can try that one, is quite funny, after 2 hours i swap back to factory firmware,
yes month before ive used linksys wrt54g, same system, same sowftware, only change from that time is router. im not using any p2p at the moment because its heavy monitored. downloading from rapidshare etc...
well about speeds, u can see on the router 50GBS, but it means real download speed 6.25mb/s, same u can notice with sata. probably u got pc with sata HDD, speed of sata is 2GB/s, but u never copy file from one HDD to another one in that speed, because :
1 byte = 8 bits
speed od sata 2Gbits/s = maximum transfer speed would be in perfect conditions 250mbytes/s, but everyone could be happy with 100mb/s, that means copy of 700mb file (capacity of standard CD) in 7 sec.

anyway, .bay will have a free listings days, so u can find my router there if u want... or anybody else :)

I'd give you £20 for your router then lol. I want you to download the latest firmware again. Go into the router settings and do a direct firmware update. Make sure you are connected by ethernet oherwise it won't allow you to update the firmware!! Lets try it again. P2P is safe as long you download from a underground protective site inconjuction with peer gurdian and utorrent filter. . . P2P is unsafe on public sites or limewire etc. . . Rapidshare is becoming unsafe now!! The fastest is fileserve. or megaupload ;-) fileserve is the best for freeusers, so is hotfiles. You dont have to have a sata harddrive to make the download faster! As long you download something on the same partition where windows is installed it shouldn't make a differents in speed even if you have a IDE ( pata ) hardrive!! It Might make a difference if you download to a external sata hardrive though. But it still wont be fast as your primary hard drive where the operating system is installed!! Because the client application is stored on the same partition as windows that you are using to download the files to... ;):D

well, sata was just for explanation of difference between byte and bite, not for downloading speedpeerguardian and u torrent doesnt helps you, because latest tracking software looking like client.. i mean for example for edonkey site is used tracking software based on shareaza core, so, tracking company downloading from u like other client, at this moment u dont know that u are tracked. u cant block ip, or ip range like peerguardian do, because simply.. nobody knows them. could be different from day to day. at tha moment when they start downloading from u, because u are sharing files, u are broking law because u share to somebody else media under copyright law.if u are just downloading, as far as i know, till now, it is safe.updating firmware from router is not possible because its still pre relase.. that all what belkin done for customers. try it, u will see it.35£ is offer with delivery


Edonkey is old skool and no different to bearshare... There unsafe!! The Place I get my things from are very strict when it comes to sharing so I know iam fully protected... I only upload to the people I trust otherwise I put the upload rate to 0. The seedbox I download from is secure and private so theres no harm done. There are silly people out there who use there credit card to sign up for some download sites and also use free public non signup torrent sites which are full of fake uploaders and spammers. peerguardian and ip filter may not help you 110% but there a bonus that stays on incase it does help in anyway.
Downloading torrent material is safe as long you use trustworthy, secure sites, with good servers and seedboxes, preferably private sites which are always checked and filtered.

What do you mean its pre-release? I've updated my firmware already with no problem.


P.S forgot to mention, I will let you know or check Ebay out. My friends after one. :D
