"Functional Router, Expensive Switch"2.5 starson by ecualegacy
Pros: Reasonably compact. Speed is good. Price is low. Direct ethernet connection seems stable.
Cons: You get what you pay for. Wireless drops daily. Has an odd foot piece that sticks out.
Summary: I bought a brand new iMac 21.5" with the Belkin and the wireless connection drops daily. I have to go to my airport settings and reconnect each time (better than power cycling the modem and router, I know, but still annoying). I tried a firmware update and the router says it is up to date. There is no setting either on the belkin or the iMac that times out the connection for lack of use. Basically the wireless has shown it is going to drop out whenever it feels like it. There is not a problem with the direct ethernet link to my eMachine. Basically, I'm going to use this Belkin as an overpriced switch with wireless feature should I ever need it down the road. If you have the money, go buy something more reliable with the dual channel capability.
