Finally gave up on Belkin N300,
This review is from: Belkin N300 Wireless N Router (Latest Generation) (Personal Computers)
I have had this router for about 8 months, bought it to bring N band connectivity to my MacBook Air. Basically during periods of inactivity, and sometimes when I am right in the middle of something, this router looses its connection to the cable modem, indicated by the blue light on the modem turning orange. When this happens you need to reboot from the cable modem to the router to get connection back. Research and testing shows to me that it is an issue with WPA2 security on the Belkin Router as this drop of connection does not occur when you leave security off or when you use WEP. WEP is crackable so this is not an option on my network. I replaced this router with a refurb Cisco and haven't had a dropped connection since. I'd love to try the Belkin with DD-WRT to see if this improves it, but it is not compatible. At this point, this router is a brick, not usable.
**Edit** all of this trouble could have been avoid had I researched this, my bad, won't happen again. Needed a router yesterday, bought what looked good. My mistake.
