"Beautiful-looking Garbage"1.5 starson by tcindc
Pros: Looks cool. I guess. For those days when I'm laying on the floor under my desk.
Cons: No ability to assign an IP to a given MAC addresses, making virtual servers worthless.
Summary: It is nearly impossible to set up a virtual server (like, you know, a Slingbox) with this router because of its inability to assign a specific IP to a given MAC. While you can open holes in the firewall to do the routing, you cannot guarantee the IP to the device will be constant. I have tried to get around this by bypassing the DHCP, having it start higher in assigning addresses, then manually setting the Slingbox to a lower IP (using the Slingbox setup). Give it a week and it stops working, AGAIN, because the router re-assigns the address anyway.
Really, I don't need a sexy-looking router with a useless LCD display. What I need is a router that, you know, ROUTES. But if your needs are different--say, a prop for a sci-fi movie you're shooting in your basement--well, then the Belkin Vision N is your router.
