For that reason, one would typically assume that I would be the last person to buy this router -- or anything Belkin for that matter -- because it's targeted at the less tech savvy. But you know what, I'm past the days of tweaking and firmware upgrades. DDWRT on Linksys WRT54G? been there done that. I just want my router to work, like a toaster, and to not have to think about it.
Let me be clear, I almost purchased the highly regarded ASUS RT-N56U.. It's only 25 more even, and well reviewed amongst the tech-heads. However, I happened to be at Walmart and saw this one on sale and figured what the heck, considering Walmart's liberal return policy. After 6 weeks, I don't doubt my decision at all.
The GB ethernet (which only matters/applies to wired connections) is a nice plus for transferring content between wired machines. It's not going to matter when you're on the Internet though whether you're on 100mb wired or 1gb (since you're Internet connection is likely 10-20mb at the most, if that).
One major selling point if you're a Mac user: With the ASUS, you can't print from a Mac via the USB port (at least not from everything I've read, please comment if you know this not to be true). With this Belkin I can access both hard drives and printers attached to the N750 with ease from my Macbook Pro and from my Windows machines.
The web configuration GUI is simple and straightforward, I didn't used the desktop gui for config, so I can't speak to that.Read more ›
Verdict: Perhaps the best router for the home user
I have owned this router for about 10 days. [ update, 12/2/2012: it is still working fine.] It replaced a Netgear MIMO-g router that has been serving me for four years, and it is still alive as a backup router. I wanted faster connection speed and an intelligent router that gives priority to my VoIP calls over video streaming or downloads. I picked up the N750 at Costco's to make sure I can return it if it does not work out. So far, so good, but I have already encountered the major cons/limitations, so here is my take on the Belkin N750.
This router connects at the speed advertised and it does not overheat (a major advantage over other comparable routers). Belkin's customer service is also one of the best in the router business. You might or might not be able to use the advanced features, but at $99, this router matches or beats the features offered in this price range even without the extras. As I use it for its basic features (including simultaneous dual band), I am happy with it.
At 300+450, this router is fast. I am able to connect my three laptops, my Blackberry and my Zune without a hitch, getting 1GB/s on the Gigabyte port, 450 on the 5GHz wireless N, and 300MB/s on the second wireless N laptop. Both laptops connect at 5GB/s, only one receives 450MB/s (i5 17" business notebook), the other laptop is stable at 300 (2.1GHz 12" dual processor business laptop). This seems to be a limitation on the router, but heck, let it be the worst feature ever I see on it. The third laptop.Read more ›
It initially set up easily, but then started dropping the connection on both LAN and wireless connections in the house. Then it failed to connect via the USB port to a printer. When I called the 24/7 technical support, I was linked to reps in India, most of which barely spoke English comprehensively. I spent close to 4 hours on tech support and realized that each rep was simply walking me through a series of diagnostic steps being fed from a computer program. None of them had any true expertise.
I finally returned this unit and purchased a Netgear N600 DB, which was $10 cheaper than the Belkin and has so far performed flawlessly. A great product.
I spoke to several retail reps about the Belkin routers, and apparently I am not the only one who has experienced similar issues. Belkin just makes an unreliable router. They should stick to power-surge strips...
