Unfinished product - stay away for now
, August 2, 2011
This review is from: Belkin N750 Wireless DB Dual-Band Gigabit N+ Router With High Speed HD Streaming & USB (F9K1103) (Personal Computers)
Wonderful specifications and great performance, but ....
All below was observed on firmware 1.0.40 (published 07/21/2011) and 1.0.42 (published today 08/02/2011)
(1) It does not have Static Routing for LAN - this means that you cannot assign permanent addresses to devices on your network. If you cannot do that as the result you may not be able to access your devices in particular from internet. Eg. if you have a camera, and you try to access it from internet your Belkin 750 may not be able to connect to it, because it does not know how to statically assign the same LAN IP to the MAC number of the camera. Most cameras may be set to request always the same IP address but there are other devices which do not have that capability. The static and dynamic LAN routing cannot be missing from any router.
(2) Connection of the Linksys (Cisco) E4200 router configured as Access Point (AP, which means it has DHCP disabled) crashes Belkin N750.
(3) Belkin N750 DHCP Client List does not show any clients that have their IP addresses pre programmed on the client side - please note (1) above - this router cannot do static routing.
Otherwise - the modem has wonderful capability of rebooting itself following set schedule. It may help when internet connection stalls for some reason and you are away from home.
