Pros: Quiet Unit
Fantastic operating noise
Four (4) power rails
Heavy Duty power cord
Very low heat generation
Cons: Cord covers are extremely stiff and hard to bend near connectors due to shrink wrap used. This can make them unwieldy in custom chassis where hdd's may be close together in drive rails.
Other Thoughts: Great PSU to consider re-sheathing.
Unit sold has been in operation for 6 months.
This review is from: BELKIN F5D7230-4 Wireless G Router 802.11g
Pros: Of the lower end routing devices this is among the best. Depending on the model version you get some support a guest access code which provides two wireless interfaces - Neat. If you have a clue what your doing the Belkin router is a great solution at a cost savings. This router provides excellent range without a changeable antenna.
Cons: Some customers state there is slowdowns on the network this is normally caused by either the DHCP system requesting a new ip address every 58.4 seconds and/or the firewall not operating properly. For those who see there internet slow down and or die they need to know how to fix this.
Other Thoughts: I would prefer that Belkin stick to always providing a guest access code because no one else does this in this grade of product. For that matter even 2800 dollar AP head units often don't support this without some form or other authentication.
Belkin has recently started to change there warranty to just one year. This is a downside but who offers a year warranty for a device under 35 dollars? I would prefer lifetime but to get a new router after 5 years is simply not fair either.
