Pros Not sure why CNET reviewer stated Belkin N750 doesn't support 64 bit WEP. It does. I have an old computer in my home network that only supports WEP 64, and the Belkin supports it (wireless - security)
Cons Bummer if Belkin doesn't add ipv6 in the future:. If ISP drops ipv4 support in next couple of years, this could be reason to return router.
Would have helped if Belkin told you router address was 192.168.5.1, not 192.168.2.1. This would have saved a c
Summary I purchased the Belkin N750 yesterday at Costco, to replace my 6 year old Netgear WGR614 router. Frustrating waits for web pages to load werre common with the Netgear ('sending request', 'waiting for', etc). None of that with the Belkin, webpages load in a flash. Also watched two movies so far on Netflix with Belkin using Roku XD also Dell Windowns XP- not so much as a stall or reload over 3mbps dsl line, which were common with old Netgear router.
Pros IEEE 802.11n, IEEE 802.11a 3) Radio Service Set ID (SSID) 4) Multibeam technology 5) IEEE 802.11g, IEEE 802.11a, IEEE 802.11n 6) 2 Hi-Speed USB ports 7) 5 internal antennas 9) It comes fully loaded SSID and Password for each 2.4GHz, 5GHz, and guest
Cons There are none I can think of.
Summary I would differently recommend this Wi-Fi to anybody looking for a really good router. It's packed with everything you'll need to start a Wired/Wi-Fi network. In my opinion Belkin is the best.
New software supports IPv6
Cons Could use more range
I have to restart it every 2 to 3 days
Summary Awesome router, affordable, has a few bugs, but what doesn't?
Pros Easy to hook up
Cons Does not work.
Support horrendous and redundant.
Video stream constantly froze from Dish Network's sling adapter on local network.
No on/off switch.
All went bad after power outages.
Constant slow and dropped signal.
DOES NOT WORK & DOES NOT WORK.
Summary I had a Belkin N+ router since 2007 that worked great I purchased from Walmart and never had a problem, but it was outdated and I needed a better router. I had such a positive experience with my Belkin router I was pleased to pick one of these up as Costco for under $100.00 and it was easy to install using the same http address I had for my old router and did not have to install the CD. I had high hopes, but had to call support due to my modem not being recognized as being connected to the internet and spent hours on the phone only to find out, from a supervisor, that because my particular modem will not be properly recognized and I will not get the blue light that signals all is well and the light would remain amber. I was told this after hours of useless troubleshooting by techs that simply went through the same script each call. I could go on and on about the service, but you should get the point. OK I can live with an amber light, but the video stream from my Dish sling adapter constantly froze and dropped and it worked fine with my old Belkin router. There are no lights other than the power light that will either be blue or amber and no power button. I live in the mountains in Arizona and sometimes the electric goes out that was never a problem for my old Belkin, but every time I lost power the modem would not work again. I tried to reset per support and tried everything to get three of the four to reset but to no avail and they all had to be returned. One of the four never worked. I did some research and bought the only other modem Costco had at the store in Prescott which is the one I wanted, the Netgear 3800, and I could not be happier. I was reluctant to switch brands, but I had no choice and I used to recommend Belkin to all my friends because of the old router, but never again. As with many companies and brands that I have had very good luck with, Belkin has turned to producing junk over quality. I would also like to thank cnet for their recommendation for the Netgear router I now own and it was also posted on the box the router was recommended by cnet. I WILL NEVER AGAIN BUY ANYTHING FROM BELKIN NO MATTER HOW INEXPENSIVE IT IS.
Take my advice and do not waste your time with this router. When I returned the last Belkin to Costco an bought the Netgear, the Belkin router had been repackaged and I looked at it hoping it was a newer version and the bugs were fixed, but it was only a newer more colorful box with no revisions.
I usually do not take the time to write this much about a product, but I have to drive 40 miles round trip to Costco and I am only trying to save someone else the awful experience I had to go through. I am not recommending anything, but only not recommending and warning anyone who will listen to my experiences with this piece of junk they labeled a router. I would also suggest to try to use it for a week before you review it and see what happens if the power goes out.
Pros Finally got router installed and tried to register it - what a joke
Cons Support (or lack thereof) is a major disaster. I finally gave up and let them win. Good product - terrible lack of support. This is my last Belkin product and it may go back.
Summary If you want support after the purchase, forget Belkin - they can't understand me and I can't understand them. What I would give for English speaking support personal again.
