2 out of 5 eggs Turned out to be terrible after 2 years 06/11/2012

This review is from: BELKIN F5D8235-4 802.11b/g/n N+ Wireless Gigabit Router up to 300Mbps

Pros: Seemed to do a good job of dealing with network congestion.

Cons: Caused very odd issues with a lot of my devices due to issues with the firewall. Now it's certainly possible that the issues were just MY device, but then again, that's all I have to judge my experience with. I have the Logitech Revue, and this router caused connection issues for several applications. As soon as I removed this Belkin from my network, all of my issues were resolved. I attempted turning off the firewall, adding DMZ to the affected device, adding Google's DNS, factory reset, checked for new firmware. Unfortunately I have a 90 dollar router that I just refuse to use. I'm disappointed in the lack of firewall settings, and also the lack of QOS settings available. Unexplained and unfixable issues with devices connected to this router are REALLY why I removed 2 eggs, and 1 egg for a 92 dollar router not having QOS and firewall settings.

Other Thoughts: I also had a few issues where I would make a configuration change in the router, and it would take the 60 seconds to save and reboot, and the setting wouldn't have saved. So i would refresh, and power cycle, and it still didn't save, so I would have to do it again. Nothing more frustrating than bad software that feels "temperamental".
