With a few major shortcomings, the Belkin F7D8301 Play N600 HD Wireless Dual-Band N+ Router is only a good buy for non-Mac owners who intend to use the 5GHz band for their primary network.
F-U-N-D-E-D is a regular column looking -- and sometimes laughing -- at what Silicon Valley has backed in the last week.
The Belkin N+ Wireless Router is a great performer with excellent range and throughput speed. If its bulky design and lack of 5GHz frequency support don't put you off, the router is worth every penny of its $100 or so price tag.
With its easy-to-grasp status icons, up-to-date security options, and stellar support, the Belkin N1 router is on the path to 802.11n wireless networking stardom, but like other Draft N devices, its performance fails to impress.
The Belkin N1 adapter is a little better than the competition, but that's not saying much. Hold off on buying Draft N networking equipment for now.
Buffalo's AirStation Wireless USB Keychain Adapter trades fine-tuning and top performance for easy setup and simple software.
If you're looking for a router with great range, this is it.
