Belkin Wireless Router N, F5D8233-4

by joshalee15 / October 9, 2007 3:50 AM PDT

Can I get some help and suggestions?

I recently upgraded my wireless router to the Belkin wireless N router. My previous Netgear wireless router was dropping my connection, not sure if it was the atenna or interferance.

I setup the Belkin, security and selected 802.11 B/G/N. I have a Macbook Pro with the enabled N, Xbox 360 and PS3 at G and two laptops at B. I have noticed my connections speeds are lower than the Netgear B router I had. Also, my MBP takes a while to recognize the internet. One of the PC laptops drops the connection.

Should I return the Belkin, I haven't updated the firmware. Could it be the traffic and interferance?

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
