Belkin N Wireless Router
Advantages: Fast, Very large range, best security, looks stylish, trusted company product, OS Compatibility
Disadvantages: If wanting to buy extra USB for more computers to use this product it'd cost quite a bit (£20+)
This router is for use mainly in Big Homes. The N range capability means that the wireless range should be able to get around your whole house and maybe far outside. Belkin is a very trustwothy company and I myself have been using this piece of equipment for a while now.
Below I am going to rate all the important bits /10 and then write a comment:
Wireless Range: 8/10
The range is very good, even if your wireless computer is fairly far away. My main PC is around 15- 20 metres away with around 5 walls to pass through. My computer gets a connection of 3- 4 bars which is very good compared to many other wireless routers I have used.
Very Quick and easy, took only 10 minutes to install and getting all my wireless PCs connected. With very simple instructions.
Price of components: 4/10
The Belkin N wireless USB adapter is rather exspensive for what it is and it is one of the best USBs to use. Otherwise the rest comes with the box.
Internet Speed: 9/10
Very good for online gaming. You get lagging now and then due ot the router but that is pretty much normal for all routers. Also when downloading you may think that many of these routers will be slow when coming to download.... not for this one. This one is very fast and can download at max speed.
Many times when you come to use a router and you lose connection you don't know whether its the router thats making the problem or if its you ISP that has the problem. This problem is not solved with this router as it tells you whether it has an internet connection or not. Also it tells you if you security WEPs, WPAs are up giving you extra confidence when using this equipment.
Having 5 Ethernet ports its useful for connecting multiple wired computers and has the capability of running a whole wired network.
Network Computer Sharing: 7/10
This router has the capability of also running a network. Where you can share and access files on other coputers (when the other coputer is turned on). This is done easily and efficiently.
Security Options: 10/10
Has the best security encryptions you need. It can also hex-code a certain phrase so if you lose or forget your key all you have to do is type in your phrase and your key will reappear.
Runs strait off the disc and from there you can update anything you want to the router. Such as changing your security key. It is done in a flash.
It is rather exspensive but I believe it's worth it. It looks very stylish next ot your computer and does the job better than expected.
It does what it is meant to do, ery fast and efficient, not very high power consumption and can tell you all the equipment the router is picking up, whether it is internet connections, security enabled or another wireless computer is connected to it. Very good Router which is worth every penny in my experience.
Summary: A very good Router which over does what it says it can do. Brilliant little machine.
