  • Belkin Router

    Because my dad's so stubborn and he doesn't like our current WGR614 router, he decided that we're going to switch routers. He just bought a Belkin something or other (there's no ID?) 802.11g (54).. Has anyone had any experience with Belkin wireless things? Good/bad?

    I'd really rather not switch, as PCWorld said a while ago that our current router was one of the best in-home routers - easy to setup, fast, consistent, etc. I've been trying to find that issue of PCW again to see what was said about Belkin, but I can't find it..

      Yes, and I know that g is downwardly compatible with b. We have mostly g equipment.

        Ok just making sure, so you are set to go when you get the g router, i really dont know anyone with a belkin router, to be honest, i really wouldnt recommend anything but linksys right now.

        Even Dlink is releasing unstable routers recently, they make great hubs. But there routers are very weak. They have internal design issues.

          That's the problem with our Netgear. Just about every day (and sometimes multiple times a day), I have to go and pull the plug on it (thus resetting it). Other than that it's a great router. Just soo unstable.

            I had horrible troubles with Belkin wireless/wire combo router a while back. The problem was getting the damn thing to reconnect to the aDSL line. It would work for 6 hours, then when the connection was dropped you had to reset the thing which took 5 minutes because it made you use the setup wizzard regardless if you needed to or not.

            I choose Link-SYS.

              How long ago? Hopefully not recently?

                I agree. Linksys (Cisso) is easily the best. I've been using their router & NICs for a while, and they have worked great for me.

                  I worked out all the bugs in my wireless network and my WRT54G Linksys has so far been the most reliable network I've had in quite a while.

                    It was during the time wireless was new, so I guess I would have to cut them a little slack. Its just that if a company rubs me the wrong way once, its going to be tough to get my acceptance in the future.
