With support for Wi-Fi Protected Security, you can ensure that your wireless network is safe and secure with a single button push. In addition to Wi-Fi Protected Security, the N+ router also supports 256-bit WPA/WPA2-Personal, and 64-bit and 128-bit WEP encryption to ensure that your data is protected.

Easily Share Storage with Your Whole Network
The router features a USB port that allows you to connect a USB storage device, such as a hard drive or thumb drive, and share its contents with all the computers on the network. With an attached storage device, you can store music, videos, and photos in a central location for everyone on the network to share and access.

The Belkin wireless N+ router is the third wireless router I have purchased over the last five years. I have a three story house and the router is located on the first floor. The earlier routers did not cover the entire house and I had to use a wireless repeater. More importantly, these earlier routers were always having to be reset, sometimes on a daily basis. This new Belkin router has taken care of both problems. It gives a substantially stronger signal and I do not need the repeater any longer. More importantly, is has been absolutely reliable. I have not had any problems since plugging it in a month ago. Set up was a breeze. I am one totally-happy camper!

I have had this router for two months, using a mixed Mac and PC environment, all with wireless N cards.

The router has phenomenal range and throughput. I am getting 5 bars in locations around my house where my previous router (D Link G router) would not give a signal at all. The speeds are also amazing. Using Comcast's Blast service in the SF Bay Area, I am regularly able to attain 20 Mbs speeds over wireless and 30 over wired connections. I have a small USB hard drive connected to the router, but really haven't played with it long enough to evaluate it's network storage speeds. The hard drive is recognized by the PC but not by the Macs.

The main drawback to this device is that it frequently drops the internet connection with the cable modem (an RCA Thompson model). I know the internet is still active on the Comcast end of things because my Comcast Digital Voice service is not affected, only my internet. Strangely, when this happens, it is also nearly impossible to connect to the router via the web page address ( I expect that this is a firmware issue and have been waiting for updates, but no such luck yet.

Also, the router has a Guest Access mode which allows others to surf the internet but does not grant them network access.

Overall, great range and speed if you can tolerate the occasional need to reboot the router.

Verified Purchase
Surprisingly, there are not many highly rated wireless routers out there to pick from. It seems like the best ones only get about 3-star reviews. I am upgrading from a Linksys wireless-g router that is a few years old, and wanted to make sure whatever "n" router I purchased it would be worth the money, and shows an improvement in functionality.

We'll, this router delivers. I'll try to briefly bullet the reasons why:

* Set up was very easy using the provided CD/tutorial. Took about 20 minutes total.
* After 4 days of use, no dropped signals or functionality issues at all.
* Ability to hold a flash drive (plugs right into the back of the router) that can be accessed by other computers is very convenient. Now, when I use my work laptop at home I can access or transfer files to the house laptop easily.
* LED screen on the router is easy to read and shows you what is or isn't working.
* I am now running internet speeds significantly faster on "n" versus "g". You'll see a big difference with this.
* I am getting much stronger signals all over the house versus my Linksys router
* Amazon's price of $87 makes it worth the price.

I highly recommend it to all.

What does my title mean?

I was running a wireless G home network with a Linksys router (in fact, I have a review on that router!). I was happy with my setup but I wanted to upgrade to wireless N and maximize the throughput on my devices. For the record I have:

- Personal laptop
- Work laptop
- Nintendo Wii
- Xbox 360
- PS3
- DirecTV HR20
- Sony PSP
- Nintendo DS
- Dell media server

Running on my home network. Of those devices, the 360, HR20 and media server are connected via Ethernet. I'd researched the viability of going to a Gigabit network. For those that aren't aware, basic Ethernet is capable of a maximum of 100Mbps throughput. You can imagine that might be a bit of a problem when you're streaming HD movies across your server. I also noticed a significant performance impact when attempting to use my internet connection at the same time as browsing my local network, probably due to the fact that it's not a dual band router. But it was severely annoying to me and I decided to go shopping.

I noticed this router down at BBuy, for just shy of $120. It seemed quite a bit for a router (I'm used to paying no more than half of that amount), but I noticed all of the features of the router and everything clicked into place. The router is more than a router; it's actually a hub for just about everything you can imagine. There are some notable things missing, and it does have some issues, but it's easily one of the best routers I've used in recent history (and I have used quite a few of different brands).

This Belkin supports a variety of protocols which I'll go into momentarily.

I bought this router based on the strength of the reviews from CNet etc. After some minor problems getting setup,the router worked fine for about 6 months. After 6 months it started constantly dropping my internet connection when connected wirelessly. Only powering off and powering back on would resolve the problem. I upgraded the firmware hoping that might solve the problem. No joy!
I called Belkin tech support who insisted the problem was my ISP. Reluctantly, I changed ISPs and upgraded to a high speed broadband connection. I still had the problem with dropping the connection. The I ran a speedtest (with wired connection to the router) to see if my new ISP service was working as promised. I got a measly 2 Mps. I then directly connected to my modem (i.e. bypassing the Belkin router) and suddenly I had a blazing fast (40 Mbps) highly reliable connection. I again called Belkin tech support whom initially told me to upgrade the firmware. When I explained i had already done this, they immediately told me the unit was defective and I would need to exchange it for a new one. They gave me a link at their site to do this.
Now the best part of the story. As I filled out the on-line forms to to exchange my router, the instructions described two options 1) first, they send me a new one and then I return my old one or 2)I send in my old one first and then they send me a new one. Since I need a router, I wanted to choose option 1. But after completing the address form I was sent immediately to option 2. So I called customer support.
