Pros cheap, good wireless signal
Cons None to speak of.
Summary I've been using this for over a year. Got it at Target. The router spent part of it's life in a hot, dusty shed and had no problems. I have never had to reset this router; it just works. Get my full 15+meg down / 3+meg up speeds from comcast. Decent range too.
I have never used this as anything but wifi router, so I cannot comment on the other functions.
Pros Easy to Use, Reliable
Cons Slow Intranet Connection Speed
Summary Great router!
"An epic fail"on by cujomx
Pros Its cheap and small. The wired ports work without problems
Cons The wireless disappear after you set up. It can take 5 minutes or a month, but always disappear. You need to delete all the settings to turn it on the wireless again, only expecting that this time will last a little more. Support is a complete waste
Summary I got this product because I wanted a cheap wireless router for my weekend house. This seemed to be a good solution. But it isnt. After the configuration everything seems to be ok, working as expected, until the wireless falls. The router seems to be working perfectly but the network cannot be detected by any device. I needed to delete all the setings and configurate the router again from the begining to make it work again. But after a random period falls again. The network can last 5 min or a month, but always ends like that. The wired conection works as expected providing internet as normal. Its only the wireless that fails
I contacted support with specific details and they didnt get it at all. They sent me information how to set up the router and how to configurate the internet conection which I DONT NEED, COZ THE INTERNET WORKS WELL DUE THE FACT THE WIRED PORTS PROVIDE INTERNET WITHOUT PROBLEMS. They never understand that the problem was only the wireless, and it was a waste of time.
its not the first router that i configurate, but its the worst by far. For the others i have spent 15 minutes and its really strange that they fail.
So DONT BUY IT!, ITS A WASTE OF MONEY!
Pros Wireless router and WPA2 authentication are solid once the initial connectivity is established. Its small and cheap, and easy to configure.
Cons Belkin incorrectly refers to the 4-port switch as an integrated 10/100 ethernet switch. Each of the 5 ports (1 modem port + 4 switch ports) have only 4 pins, laid out in standard 10Base-T ethernet configuration (only pins 1,2,3, and 6 are present.)
Summary This product is cheap and simple enough for the novice user to get connected to the Internet. The wireless configuration and functionality is excellent for such an inexpensive switch. However, anyone who buys this switch should be aware that wired performance will not live up to Belkin's claims. With the knowledge beforehand that the integrated switch is only capable of 10Base-T, I would not have purchased this switch. I would not recommend to anyone else either.
Pros Cheap, use it as an AP for iPhone and wireless guests (entire house is hardwired).
Does offer a fair amount of neat features for the ones that will be using this one as the main router/firewall.
Cons None yet. Will get its 5th star if the device is still up and running after another year.
Not sure how able/willing Belkin will be to provide firmware updates for this (cheap) router.
Summary Been biased towards NetGear for year, but after having had three NetGear routers either fail completely, or start acting up, I was looking for something low cost, and for less than $30 (@Staples), the Belkin really could not go wrong.
Set-up is easy, it does provide you with a layman's mode for setting it up as an AccessPoint (in case you can't do this yourself), it does provide for all standard feature (port forwarding, Mac adress filtering, neat status updates, etc). Really not much to complain over.
