Pros Easy set-up, covers entire house. All wireless computers and i-pod connected without trouble.
Cons Interference from cordless phone issue should be addressed in the set-up instructions.
Summary Great price at Target. Easy set-up. Once I changed the channel on the router to fix the interference from the cordless phone the router worked great.
Pros It works for a maximum of 3 months before you start having issues.
Cons I have been on the phone with Belkin more than 5 times and I haven't owned this router for a year yet. They even, at one point, came to the conclusion that it was my computer, not my router. So I sent my computer out and got it back and it was fine.
Summary This router sucks....don't waste your money. Even though I only spent $40 on this, it was the worst investment that I ever made.
Pros I live in Malaysia where prices for electronics are outrageous, but the Belkin Surf was reasonably priced ... for here (RM 239; USD 79). The pros for me don't come from the Surf, but from Belkin tech support in Malaysia. The tech was responsive and stayed
Cons Although the Surf is packaged to be "idiot proof" with tags saying do this first, this second...and the wires already plugged in, the Surf does not work out of the box as it should. I had to spend 1+ hour on the phone with Belkin tech support to reconfig
Summary Although the Surf seems intended to be easy to set up, it did not work "out of the box". Belkin should recall these modems and repackage them without the problem causing setup CD and with instructions that will actually allow the Surf to work.Some of the Pro and Con posts did not post.

Pros: Tech was responsive and stayed on the phone 1+ hour until the modem was working.
Cons: I had to spend 1+ hour on the phone with Belkin tech support to reconfigure the modem to work the first day. The next morning, I had to call tech support again because the computer that the Belking software was installed on could not connect. Other computers in the house could, however. The tech suggested uninstalling the Belkin software and so far the modem is working on all computers in our home.
Pros good looks, thats about it...
Cons no details for reason of disconnection from wan, port forwarding is difficult, gives only 2 to 3 mBps transfer speeds on wlan even when both computers are using 802.11n
Summary If i could roll back, i would go for linksys or netgear instead.
Pros Nice colors on the box
Cons Disconnects every five minutes, port redirect wont work, bad web interface, no antenna, only 100mbps on wired lan.
Summary It just wont work, i sent it to Belkin to get it repaired, and when i got it back, they had "upgraded" the firmware to the same as when bought it. It wont even work on wireless with the standard configuration.
