I highly recommend this wiresless router to replace your broken or ancient one or to get a wireless internet connection at home for the first time! Some advice follows having successfully installed this :)

This router is only for cable modems like Virgin and not for DSL broadband like BT etc.

Pros:

- Easy set up
- Works great with Virgin Media Broadband,
very good range on wireless mode (my PS3 used to get 53% signal strength from my old Cisco Linksys router but this Belkin one gives me 80%)
- Comes with a free wifi USB dongle to 'wireless-enable' any computer or laptop you may have that doesn't have wifi
- Biggest pro is the amazing low price! Get one as a spare if anything, because your current wifi router may need replacing at some point (my old one died unexpectedly).

Cons:

- Cheap looking in appearance
- A very short ethernet cable provided so don't expect this router to be far from your modem or PC
- Even the "easy setup" option can yield issues with connecting. Don't worry, I'll explain the issues here.

If you are connecting this to your Virgin Media broadband, the first question in setup is "What IP address do you have- 'Static' or 'Dynamic'? The answer is always 'Dynamic'.

Secondly, when setup says to connect the power to the router, that is when you MUST unplug your cable modem, wait 30 seconds and then reconnect the power to your modem. Setup doesn't tell you this, but this is how to avoid any issues. It resets your modem's IP Address and ensures your router sets up properly. Then, when the power is back on the modem, connect the power to the router and only then should you click 'next'.

Lastly, during wireless setup, choose "WPA" securtiy. It is the most secure and safest wireless security, far better than 'WEP'. Choose a secure password for yourself and a simpler password for guests to connect their phones/laptops etc. when they are visiting you. Guests will only be able to access the internet with their guest password, while your password will enable you to have full access to the computer and its files, as well as the internet.

NOTE: If ever you want to log in to the router's settings page to see the settings or change them/change passwords, do this: Open Internet Explorer and in the address bar at the top, type this- h t t p://192.168.2.1/ (REMOVE THE SPACES BETWEEN THE H T T P) and then press enter. This displays all your router settings :)

Have fun guys. Hope this helps.
