Connecting the Belkin N1 Wireless Router to your cable or DSL modem lets you share your broadband Internet account with all your networked computers. Now you can exchange documents, share resources, and distribute large video and music files throughout your network within a greater range, at faster speeds. N1 offers the easiest setup ever, and our built-in Network Status Display lets you see your connections working. Each icon represents a network component, so you can easily monitor your connections for fast troubleshooting. Based on the 802.11n draft, N1 Wireless uses smart-antenna technology to enable multiple receivers and transmitters to send and receive data wirelessly. Intelligent MIMO (Multiple Input Multiple Output) spatial multiplexing techniques build upon the widely deployed 802.11g standard by greatly increasing speed, range, and faster speeds of up to 300Mbps.

So, after tons of issues with my Linksys at home I went ahead and bought one of these to replace the Linksys - I live in a high rise and don't mind my neighbors using my connection - but I suggest that you operate it on 802.11G mode only not b/g, this way you won't be subjecting yourself to slower speeds. Also, I noticed that it was slow - painfully slow for some reason - so I changed the channel setting from 1 to 9 and now I'm at either 54Mbps or 24Mpbs with an "excellent connection" through 5 walls about 60 feet away from the router. Also living in a high rise there's literally dozens of wireless routers (and these are just the ones that broadcast their SSID or "name") in my neighborhood and none of them are interfering with the Belkin!
My gripe is that they still don't have a pre-n USB adapter for computers - it's either PCMCIA for laptops or a card you have to put into your computer. At my hotel we loan out - for free - usb wireless adapters - they work much better than cards because they have a cord for better reception. When will they come out with a USB version of the adapter???
Order it, it's really simple to use and you will not be disappointed!
Bought this Belkin router from Amazon for $71, removed the Netgear router and put the Belkin in its place. Plugged all the cables in, cycled power on the cable modem (Charter/Motorola) and my PC and I was up and running. No reading any instructions or running any install disk. Simple as can be. In the basement, the signal strength with the Netgear G card is now "good" with speed at 54 Mbps. Things are notably faster.
Will get a Belkin MIMO PCMCIA card tomorrow and that should make things even better.
Bottom line is for $110 (router/card) total I will have pre-N level speed and range on my one laptop and improved range and speed on my other two laptops that will stay as G's.
Setting up the Belkin was really easy - disconnect the old router and stick in the CD - follow the instructions and then plug the new router in and you are ready to go. After that open up a browser window and log into the router using the 192.XXX.X.X number supplied and make any changes to the settings that you want. The router interface is pretty basic - almost too basic, but it did do the job. I like the one-button firmware upgrade, as well as the easy security setup. But the MAC address filter was a little vague in its operation and didn't auto-detect all new MAC addresses (like my old Netgear). You also had to manually enter in the ones that it couldn't find.
I didn't have a 54G router previously, so I don't really know if the range or speed have improved in G format. But my old Gateway Centrino does seem to be a little quicker and the range is better. The MIMO antennas appear to be doing their job. I noticed that i was getting much better range from a DLink PCMCIA card. And i haven't had any compatibility issues. So far, the router has easily detected and connected to antennas from Intel (Gateway 450X), DLink (Wifi PCMCIA card ona old Compaq), Dell (XPS M140 and Axim X51v PDA) and IBM (Thinkpad) without a problem.

All in all, I think that the Belkin Pre-N was a good deal. It was a little more expensive than a 54G solution, but the ease of use and performance make up for it. Computer savvy users may want a more technical interface, but for the casual user, the interface is probably just right.
