5 out of 5 eggsLet's Make this EASY for people to set up.

Pros: When the folks a Belkin designed the interface and package for this router, one rule clearly outweighed all others: EASE OF USE. It comes out of the box with all of the cables already plugged in and labeled so that installing it wrong is almost impossible. That little bit of foresight probably saves them a pile of cash in help desk labor.

It's become standard practice for routers to come from the factory with the default wifi already secured with a unique password and this one does as well. A nice touch was the SSID/key being printed on a card that lives in a slot on the bottom of the router, so someone who needs to connect can just grab that card, carry it to wherever they need to it in the house or office, and then put it back, thereby connecting without having to stand near the router and read the side or bottom of it with their head cocked to one side while they type with one hand and support a laptop or tablet with the other.

You can set this router up easily by connecting to the factory default wi-fi via a cell phone or tablet and walk through the first run/setup if you need to. The ability to set up over wi-fi and/or using a mobile device may be handy for some people.

Speaking of the first run/initial setup, it is so dumbed down and simplified that I simply can't imagine someone getting it wrong. Even if you do get it wrong, it's probably still going to work (just not as well as it should).

The ease of setting up a Guest network that did not require a key was also cool. It used browser-based authentication like a retail store or coffee shop and many people will find that preferable if they need a guest wi-fi.

Digging past the big, bold, simple, common settings avails the more detailed and advanced settings. Everything one could hope for in a modern home/SOHO router is there, including the ability to switch the router into AP-only mode so that it can be used as a standalone access point without any routing, NAT, or firewall functions enabled.

The vertical orientation should take very little real estate on a desk or shelf.

The wi-fi range was slightly above average but not stellar and throughput was on par with most of the 802.11ac units I have worked with in the last few years, especially when using the most common 802.11n equipment @ 2.4GHz.

The 4-port switch is a pretty standard-fare workgroup switch with good throughput for attached devices. I never managed to saturate a port, but I never really tried.

Oh, it also looks really sleek.

Cons: The USB2.0 port should not be blue! What were they thinking? Netgear did this on a few WRN models as well, but a careful user will be smart enough to read the labels, I hope.

The USB3.0 port didn't really perform like a USB3.0 port. If you are hoping to set up a NAS behind this unit, don't expect to stream hi-def video or have reasonable backup times (forget about deduplicating backups if you have a lot of redundant data, the latency will be too high for it).

I played with the DLNA server enough to see that it works, but there isn't much point unless you are only streaming music. You can't manage the library without removing the external drive and plugging it into a PC and the aforementioned poor USB performance hampers video, so the DLNA becomes essentially a feature to bullet in the marketing literature, but never actually use. DLNA is dying a slow death to better technologies like Plex anyway.

Although well-made and solidly built, the unit as a whole has a lightweight and chintzy feel to it. Most routers do, so I hesitated to mention this, but the vertical orientation combined with a cable squid coming off of the back of it will probably make it want to wander or tip.

Other Thoughts: All in all, this is among the best routers that Newegg has sent me to test. It will work fine in any average home and most SOHO environments. If you have specific needs vis-a-vis media streaming you will want to find an external solution or a router that does it better (very few routers actually do it well).

Since I actually have a PFsense firewall that I built on my network and a standalone NAS and a standalone Plex Media Server VM, once I was done with testing I switched this router into AP-only mode and installed it in place of my Intellinet access point, which it has outperformed admirably thus far (at 2/3 the cost of the Intellinet). Even as an access point only, the F9K1115 is a darn good unit.

5 out of 5 eggsgood

Pros: i have had the Belkin AC1750DB for about two weeks now, its been working smoothly. parental controls are nice and easy to use. setup is simple. i have not had any problems with stability. WiFi is good. decent strength. not quite as strong as my tplink ac1750 with external antennas, but not bad.
made of durable plastic. the type of plastic that bends before breaking. the glossy black finish is a fingerprint magnet.
Twonky DLNA server is pretty cool if you have a smart tv or other device that supports it. as it makes it easy for devices like tv's and phones to access your media library.

Cons: would of been nice if the 2.0 port was black.
the usb 3.0 port tops out at 7.43MB/s not fast enough for effective NAS.
it would be nice of the usb 3.0 port was faster. being under 8MB/s its not fast enough to stream uncompressed 1080p video through a usb device.
however having everything be plug and play makes it simple.
no way to hang it on a wall.
power adapter is very big for only 30 watts.

Other Thoughts: its not a bad router. it has good wireless strength, its simple and easy to use. has lots of features and controls. I recommend this router for a technically inclined family. most families probably would not need or use all these features.

4 out of 5 eggsBELKIN F9K1115 AC1750

Pros: -Supports wireless AC protocol with up to 300Mbps + 1.3Gbps data rates

-4 gigabyte speed Ethernet ports

-2 USB ports one of which is a USB 3.0 port

-Parental controls allow sites to be blocked and activity to be limited to certain times of day

-Quality of Service controls allows video/skype calls to take preference over uploads of pictures/other files – although one caveat is that that some users reported the Intellistream settings can limit bandwidth

-Guest and Media networks can add security to your home network

-Supports DLNA/UPnP media for streaming – your devices must support the file formats you are trying to stream

Cons: -Can’t really be mounted on its side – this can be problematic when 4 Ethernet cords are pulling it in one direction, off the table-top.

-The only security that prevents intruders out of the box is the wireless password. Wired users could plug in and take full control of the router until someone sets up a password.

-Would be nice if you could manage the content on the DLNA/UPnP server without needing to unplug the device from the router and plug it into a computer.

-Shiny, thin, light plastic is fingerprint magnet

-No LEDs for LAN ports to indicate connectivity status or speed

-Power adapter needs plenty of space on the power strip or bottom wall plug

Other Thoughts: -UI is simple to use but somewhat lacking for advanced users. I did not find an option to create a VPN server.

-No external antennas to play with and move around - I’m not sure if this matters for signal strength, but it may matter for some people.

-As most people reported, I saw ~7 MB/s in NAS mode

-OpenWRT is compatible with this router

-DD-WRT seems not to have a firmware image for this router yet

-Tested this device with a Windows 10 x64 desktop using Ethernet port and subsequently 2 different USB wireless AC adapters and my Samsung S5

-There are settings to reboot the router daily or weekly… my Netgear router has an uptime of over 150+ days without any problems. Why reboot?

-At the time I’m writing this – the product has been out of stock for about a week

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Moderately good range
Very easy setup
Twonky DLNA server
Sleek design

Cons: Bulky power adapter
Throughput could be better

Other Thoughts: I found this router to have acceptable range, though not as good as any of my routers with antennas. I was still able to get an acceptable signal from a corner of my basement to the opposite corner of my home on the first level.

The wireless speeds that I was able to achieve were acceptable, though not as good as a pair of TP-Link routers used for comparison.

Setup was very easy. I connected the router, connected my phone to the wireless network and was prompted to "sign in" which launched the phone's browser and a quick setup wizard.

Once the initial setup is done, you are able to get to the main dashboard (which displayed flawlessly on my phone where other routers often fail). From there you can tweak wireless settings, enable basic parental controls (access schedule, Norton content filters), etc.

I found that this router includes a pretty awesome Twonky DLNA server. This was one of the easiest DLNA servers to set up that I've encountered in a router. I didn't have any trouble streaming a variety of files using this feature. I hope more manufacturers make DLNA this easy.

They include a USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 port. The USB 3.0 port is labeled, but not color coded like most.

I feel that this router would be a good purchase for the non-technical person due to the very easy setup, however, the usual settings appear to be included. I didn't see a setting for IGMP proxy, which may be required by some IPTV users.

4 out of 5 eggsEasy to Understand and Setup for Newcomers

Pros: This is as easy as it gets for setup. You have numerous ways to setup the router, wired/wireless. The setup is straightforward.
Even extra features are simple, print server is plug-n-play.
Features include everything a basic home environment could want.
Had no issues in my time with it, no need to restart, no dropped connections.
Speeds are up to par with other AC1750 routers.

Cons: The router casing and stand aren't to my liking. I appreciate the design, however it feels cheap, not something I generally expect at this price point.
Stand could be troublesome, there isn't a feasible way to have it lay down. Personally prefer not to use a stand as it is prone to tipping if any wires get pulled by accident.
I did have issue with range. There are no external antennas. 5ghz coverage was well enough in a few rooms, but with a few walls in between, dropped connections could happen. Luckily I did not experience any, but I was on the verge on losing connection despite not being any farther away than testing with previous routers, on the other hand, the 2.4ghz band range was reliable.

Other Thoughts: I think it's a great router for inexperienced users looking to setup a home network. Experienced users should look elsewhere as there are other routers that have what you want and allow things such as custom firmware.

Did you find this review helpful? Yes No

4 out of 5 eggsGets the job done, with a few complaints

Pros: Looks kind of neat. Wireless range is better than I expected given that it doesn’t have external antennas. Not quite as good as my wireless APs in the house, but I can still get moderate to high signal through two drywall walls and about 50 feet away on the 5Ghz AC band. Obviously G and N have a little better distance but lower bandwidth.

The blue light on the front isn’t overbearingly bright so you won’t have to deal with that, like some other routers I’ve tested. For those interested in WPS, it’s easy to find because the button is right under the blue light on the front/top.

I’d wager to say that the setup for this router is probably the most straightforward of all the routers I’ve tested/reviewed recently. You pretty much just hook it up, connect a wired or wireless device to it and it will take you straight to the setup menu. It’s self explanatory enough for even someone without a lot of knowledge of routers. It will take you through basic setup of the network and allow you to set a password for the admin console as well as setting up wireless SSIDs and passwords.

The NAS and print server part of the router is a little confusing until you just figure out that it’s plug and play. Connecting a printer or hard drive to the router and then navigating to the router in your respective file manager should just show the drive.

Cons: The plastic casing on the device is very cheap. Like toys bought from China for a cent cheap. Rather disappointing but if you’re hiding it in a cabinet or the like it won’t matter. Perhaps I’m picky but that’s just my thing.

The stand isn’t great, it’s real wobbly and connecting a couple of network cables to it is enough to tip it over in some cases.

The router will only stand vertically unless you want to get creative with velcro or something else. There isn’t a way to lay it down as the stand only holds it vertical and the router is in such a shape that laying it flat isn’t really doable.

No real point in using USB 3.0 on this router as using it in NAS mode never yeilded me transfer rates of more than 7MB/s. That’s pretty disappointing and I’ll admit I pulled out several USB 3.0 flash drives and external drives to verify. So, it works, but it isn’t going to be lightening quick.

Other Thoughts: Unable to test Intellistream as my internet speeds are far too high for it to work properly. It even told me so in the setup GUI.

All in all, if you want something that’s pretty fast and not terribly pricey, this will do the job. Just don’t expect it to be awesome in the performance category.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Bonus Features

Pros: As with all dual band routers, you get 2 routers in 1, one 5 Ghz transmitter, and one 2.4 Ghz. Signal strength is good, but not as strong as upper end routers. Speeds are good, with the 5 Ghz band supporting speeds up to 1.3 Gbps, and the 2.4 Ghz band supporting speeds up to 450 Mbps. I had no problems with dropped connections over the almost 4 weeks I have been testing it. Setup was really easy. One of the most impressive features for me was the Twonky DLNA server that comes as a bonus feature of the router (see other thoughts for more details). If you want to block malicious, adult or other non-family friendly sites, the router supports the Norton black list out of the box.

Cons: Some may like the minimalist design but I don’t. I have always preferred a utilitarian design over an artsy one. For example, there are no status lights for the wired connections. The router is set to automatically restart once a week by default. This could be problem in some environments.

Other Thoughts: The router performs on par with other routers in its class, and is suitable for large homes with multiple devices. If you have a very large home or a large back yard where you want Wifi signal, you should probably go for a more powerful router.
I absolutely love the Twonky DLNA server. It works flawlessly with my Roku streaming box. Once the router is set up, just connect the Roku to the router, plug in a USB storage device (flash drive, hard drive) to the back of the router, and start the Roku media player app on the Roku. It sees the Twonky server right away and will search the storage device for playable media. I put MP3’s, as well as bluray and DVD sampler files on the hard drive. All played perfectly. In fact, the bluray sampler played with DTS digital surround sound and perfect video quality. Amazing! In some ways, it is much easier to use than a Plex server and is a free bonus feature of the router.
In summary, what sets this router apart from others in its class is the included support for parental controls, like the Norton website blacklist, and the Twonky server.

3 out of 5 eggseasy config and up time

Pros: easy to set up. option to use as a stand alone access point, when you don't need the entire house to be saturated. ethernet and two usb ports. comes with stand.

while testing with ipad walking around, signal drops after a 50 foot distance.

after july firmware update, marked performance improvement.

while it doesn't have a button to just shut off the wifi radio, it allows you to schedule when the wifi is turned on and off. This should be a required option in all new routers. leds can be dimmed to save power. remote access from work.

all in all this is a good router for the casual user, even your teenager can set this up and learn a few things. the parental settings and scheduling can limit online overdosing.

Cons: no security on initial setup. power plug has big footprint.

Other Thoughts: easiest router I've ever had the pleasure to set up. will look for more belkin products in the future. features + ease of use.

5 out of 5 eggsConnected

Pros: Very surprising, when I opened the box and notice that the AC1750 DB cables (CAT 5E and power cord are already plugged in and ready to go. There is a quick start guide built into the box with easy instructions with large pictures shows every step of the setup process. The unit is well packaged and easily accessible when you first open the box.

When I read other reviews about this router being capable of being setup from a phone it was the first item I tried the setup process with and it was an easy setup. If I can use my phone to set this up, I would think that even the novice could set it up from a computer. I haven’t had much luck setting up or managing a router from a phone, but this one is surprisingly easy. Belkin was the first company I started with when WIFI was first introduced and now it Belkin is back with a superior product. Not only is it capable of being set up from a phone, you can do it without a wired connection.

One thing I always do is setup my router using the existing network name and password, this allows all WIFI devices to connect without me having to do anything. The AC1750 DB did this exceptionally well. You may have to restart some of your devices if they do not connect on their own. I did not have to renter the password on any of the devices during testing. My house consist of 10 laptops, 5 Smart TV’s, 4 desktops, and 2 media servers that reconnect to the AC1750 DB without issue. The connection is strong and throughout the house with not disconnects

Cons: USB 2.0 port is blue and although the quick start guide is attached to the box, a manual would be nice. The package does not say it includes one…there is always the internet where you will find the user’s manual and a tutorial.

Other Thoughts: None at this time.

Did you find this review helpful? Yes No

5 out of 5 eggsHas worked well for me so far

Pros: +Supports AC1750 speed which should be good for most homes.

+You can easily see that this router is designed in many ways to help out people who are not very computer literate set up a router. Even right down to having the power cord plugged into the router and the Ethernet cable that connects to your cable modem already connected. I have done that for my mom when I let her borrow my router when she went on vacation. The directions are mostly pictures, and it comes with a card in a slot at the base of the router with its preconfigured wireless ssid and password printed on it.

+Good range throughout our house on both the 2.4ghz and 5ghz channels. Our house is roughly 60’ x 40’ with an L shape at one end of the house. I have tried a more expensive Netgear router and this router gets roughly the same range and speeds. It does have trouble at the farthest corner of our house, but every router I have tried has that problem, which is on the L shaped opposite end of our house.

+The router itself comes packaged nicely and looks very nice. It’s the first router I have owned that stands in a vertical position which saves desk space. It has one light on it that is just about right for brightness. The router looks very nice also.

+It’s a well known brand name router. I think they even bought the Linksys company/brand.

Cons: -The Firmware has not been updated since January of 2014. To me that is a negative as this is their latest router they make.

-No open source firmware is available for this router. This also relates to the Firmware having not been updated for so long. Having open source firmware is the best alternative for when the firmware is no longer updated.

Other Thoughts: Before I received this router I actually expected to be writing a somewhat negative review, due to some other negative reviews I have read on other websites. However as you can see I have given my rating of 5 stars, as I honestly have not come across anything very negative about this router, at least not yet anyways.

I have had mine connected to our Time Warner Cable Modem.

The firmware seems to be designed to try to not confuse people. Its main screen is well laid out in my opinion. It does have an “advanced” section with many options. Including an option to have the router reboot each day or any day, it comes preset with it to reboot once per week. This is good for fixing problems that sometimes come up over time, many routers do not have this option. It also comes with an optional guest access network setting that lets you have guests log in through a webpage.

I did try the media server where I hooked up my own videos/movies that I own on a 2.5” external usb 3.0 drive connected directly to the routers usb 3.0 port. The firmware uses myTwonky with DLNA as a media server. I was able to play them fine. Although it might depend on how far you are from the router and how big the files are it has to transfer.
