Fast, Easy Three-Step Setup

The Belkin Surf N300 Wireless N Router has been designed for an easy setup. All you have to do is follow three simple steps: plug the Surf N300 into your modem, plug the router into the wall, and insert the included setup CD into your computer. And you won't have to tinker with encryption settings, since the Surf N300 comes with preconfigured wireless security settings.

To set up your network, the Surf N300 requires a computer with a Windows XP 32 (SP3 or greater), Windows Vista (32/64), Windows 7 (32/64), or Mac OS X (v10.5 or v10.6) operating system; an installed network interface card and TCP/IP networking protocol; Internet Explorer, Firefox, or Safari; and minimum 64 MB RAM.

3D Coverage for Your Entire Home

Featuring Belkin's powerful 3D Coverage technology, the Surf N300 provides robust, reliable coverage. It uses two antennas--one horizontal and one vertical--to achieve full coverage across two planes. This ensures a consistent signal, even when there are walls and floors between you and your computer. You'll be able to obtain a strong signal at all times, regardless of where you are in your house.

High-speed Performance with Wireless-N 300 Technology

Whether you're surfing image-rich websites, sending a flurry of emails, or instant messaging far-off friends, the Surf N300 delivers the fast speeds you need. The router uses 802.11n technology, which gives you speeds of up to 300 Mbps.

Get a Wireless-N network up and running in three simple steps.
Self-Healing App Keeps Your Network Up and Running

The Surf N300 includes Belkin's Self-Healing Application, which analyzes your network and automatically detects and resolves any problems. These routine maintenance scans ensure that you're always working on the clearest possible wireless channel. And if the network does require your attention, a notification will appear on-screen.

Versatile, Energy-Efficient Design

Providing all the inputs and outputs you need to sustain a full online network, the Surf N300 features four LAN ports, allowing you to connect up to four wired computers for a complete network. In addition, the router's power adapter is Energy-Star certified. This helps to minimize your energy use, reduce costs, and keep your network green.

A lot of people have complained about the Belkin Surf F7D230 - the older version of this router sold in a blue/white box. I got the revised version F7D6301, which seems to work just fine for me.

I am replacing my good-ole Linksys WRT54G v1.0 with the Belkin Surf N300 F7D6301. Here are my comments:

* I bought it for $29 at Walmart on Black Friday, otherwise it sells for about $45.
* I did not use the Setup CD that would install a 95MB setup/monitoring program.
* If you have Windows 7, the setup is easy enough, just connect the power cable, hook up the router to the modem and you are set. The only other thing you need to do is to enter the preset password located on a small card on the side of the router. You can later access the router settings by entering [...] in your browser and set up a more convenient WPA/WPA2 under "Security" located in the left hand side navigation area.
* If you are not tech savvy, run the setup CD, it pretty much does it all for you.

I then ran a network test on speedtest.net and Belkin Surf outperformed my old router in download speeds Linksys 12 Mbps vs. Belkin Surf 20 Mbps. Upload speeds were exactly the same 1.85 Mbps. Please note that speeds will vary due to your provider and what type of plan you have.

Then I tested the range performance. I walked outside with my laptop, about 150 feet and after connecting to one and the other, I noticed that the signal strength was "fair" for my old router and "good" for the Belkin. Also, the speeds have dropped significantly for both routers, but the Belkin still outperformed the old Linksys; 2-4 Mbps for the Linksys vs. 6-8 Mbps for the Belkin.

Pros:
+ Over all, the router is a great choice for the $price$.

I bought this router to replace an aging wired only router as I now require a wireless router, (I still required a 4-port wired switch built in too which this unit has so it seemed ideal.) The model I was shipped is the F7D6301 V1.

There is a supplied CD containing a simple to follow wizard to install the router and easily change the most common settings, but instead I just set up the router through my web-browser, (the router defaulted to a local IP address of 192.168.2.1 when plugged in so could be easily administered through a web browser). After checking all the settings, (most were set to my requirements already, I just changed the SSID to something more specific to me to differentiate my network from a couple of Belkin wireless networks within range that had similar names, increased the amount of characters in the WPA/WPA2 key significantly for additional security, added a password to access the router configuration, and enabled MAC Address Filtering so as to further protect against any unauthorized attempts to log-on from machines not within my network.)

I'm quite astounded by the quality of the wireless signal - even on different floors of the building the signal never drops below the maximum five bars, and the connectivity hasn't cut once - I have an XP Desktop PC, connected via the 4-port wired switch, an old laptop running Ubuntu 11.04 with a cheap USB1 wireless adapter, a Vista laptop and a Windows 7 laptop connected to the router via their built-in wireless capability as I write, (with the wireless secured using WPA/WPA2. A previous reviewer expressed problems setting up WPA2, I've no idea why, it works perfectly.)

I am very impressed with the ease and flexibility in setting up this router. The speed, security options and reliability are all excellent too. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to people based on my experience, especially for the price.

1. No Priority Settings
2. Universal Plug and Play Option is Useless

Lets start with the positives. Setting up was pretty simple for me, took maybe 15 minutes. The signal WAS consistently strong for the first month or so. Thats about it for the positive.

Now the biggest problem I had with this router is its completely useless for gaming, worse, it prevents it.
I hooked it up to my XBox and tried to play some CoD. However I couldn't connect to any games because my NAT settings were automatically set to STRICT. I looked up the problem online and found that I need to change the NAT settings on the router.

Attempt 1.
The problem? This router doesn't have a NAT setting option.
Attempt 2.
I then saw that it had a Universal Plug and Play option. However, even enabling UPnP did NOTHING. Absolutely NOTHING to help with the NAT settings.
Attempt 3.
I saw that the router at least had an DMZ setting option. So I manually assigned the XBox's IP address through the DMZ and finally the NAT setting changed from Strict to Moderate. Now I'm able to connect to games, however, it takes several time-consuming attempts on the XBox's part.

Now the NAT setting should not affect the quality of the game play, however, I get One Red Bar for my signal strength. (NOTE: No other computers are connected to the router at this time.) You gamers know what one bar means; it means you lag so bad by the time you see an enemy on the screen you've already been shot up and then respawned. This is a router problem and separate from the NAT settings.

So I gave up, unplugged the Ethernet cable from the router and connected directly to the XBox. Now I get the NAT settings to be OPEN and 4 Green Bars.
