Why did I pick this? when there are so many frustrated users who has complained about this router!!!
The main reason is to use this router for a cheap NAS solution, The beauty of this device is that it can natively support NTFS (Read/Write) support using it's 2 USB slots! This opens up a whole world of possibilities, You can connect a USB hub and it can mount multiple HDDs connected (Up-to 2TB each) to the router and share those drives around the house wireless! at 802 11n! speeds!, you can attach a regular USB printer and make it a wireless printer and if you have media sharing devices that you can join the private N Wireless network so all other devices in the house can share media files the list goes on and on...
Agreed with others who commented here on Amazon on the intermittent issue one might encounter, But as I do not use it to connect to Internet, I did not experience any dropout issues. I just use this for Sharing files and media around in the house with a secured PRIVATE home wireless Network.
The Software CD that comes along with the device is useful for people who do not know anything about routers or networking and they have done an excellent job, But If you are networking Guru, you will discard the CD and start tinkering with the device and you can setup a very secure N wireless network in no time.
People complain about not being able to see their shares and need to use the BELKIN provided bloat-ware to map their shared drives? Why? it is so simple to map a network drive if you simply browse your network like for example \\192.168.2.Read more ›
I picked it up at a local location that had them on sale instead of getting it at Amazon. I came home, plugged it in, configured the wireless settings and started using it. From the get-go, nothing has seemed to be consistent. The wireless works for 1-2 hours, but then just bogs down until it's unusable. I've tried different wireless bands, I don't have any interfering devices (cordless phones, radio controlled cars, etc.), and after comparing it's G band to the same on the old router, the old router wins. The N isn't any better, so there goes the reason for getting the this router.
Wireless isn't the only problem. Even when I'm physically connected the speeds slow down, just like the wireless speeds. I'll try to log in to the router admin interface, but it hangs, so I have to go unplug the device, let it sit for 30 seconds, then plug it back in. This gives me a good connection to the device again, but I seem to do this 3 or 4 times a week now. I've set up reboot schedules every night at 3 AM for the router, but that still doesn't fix anything.
What's that? Try a firmware update? Great idea! Oh, wait, Belkin hasn't released any firmware updates for this router.Read more ›
I was a bit wary because of all the negative reviews this gets from various websites, but the price being as low as it was, I figured it was worth the risk.
I had read about a firmware update for the router, so the first thing I did, as soon as I got the router installed and set up, was to go through the very easy process of updating the firmware to the latest version.
Long story short, I haven't experienced the slightest problem with this router. Not one.
I'm sure this product did have all the problems mentioned by the negative reviewers before the firmware update was released. But, a few minutes spent updating to the latest firmware erases all those problems, in my experience. Or, if you really want to, you can install DD-WRT firmware, as well.
As low as the price is on this router at various sites, with the features it boasts, a few minutes spent updating firmware will leave you with an excellent router!
I recently purchased a new Panasonic 50UT50 plasma smart TV from Amazon that does not come with wireless built in. Since Pansonic wants about $60 for the wifi dongle, I went with the N300 to create a client bridge. I very carefully followed the directions for flashing to DD-WRT for this router that I found on slickdeals, and then used instructions for creating the client bridge found in the DD-WRT wiki.
TV works great plugged into it, and I plugged my HTPC into it, too. Just as I had hoped, the N300 has better bandwidth than the USB wifi I was previously using with my HTPC. Ordered a new ethernet cable from Amazon so I can plug my PS3 up to it, as should get better bandwidth with the Belkin than the built-in wifi on the PS3.
