Got this so i could have wifi access at my uni.After unboxing, it took around 20 mins to have everything set up and working, including configuring security settings. Quick instructions and cd are very user friendly in my opinion and as of yet ive not had a problem with the router. Would definately recommend

  Good little Router

I work with with pc`s fixing and building them, but my 2 year old daughter could have set this up in five mins, i must state about the xbox live connection problem, most routers do have a problem with xbox live and the only reason why this is because you have to have a open NAT on your xbox, by default this router like most other will make you xbox NAT setting to strict but that is only for security, if you look on the official xbox live website you will see this router has been tried and tested and is great for xbox live but its not certified and all that means is the NAT setting will be set to strict by default and thats only cause the routers internal firewall, this is how you set it to open your xbox live NAT to open, 1 get the router installed working with internet access with the provided cd it does all this for you easy peasy, 2 go into the routers setting through your web browser look for DMZ setting and all you do is put the last three digits of you xbox ip address into the ip box tick enable then save, turn off pc router & modem, start them all back up and hey presto xbox live NAT setting will be OPEN, sound complicated but it ain`t just follow these steps and you have yourself a fantastic N speed router for a great price, ;-)

  XBOX LIVE CONNECTION ISSUES

| | See all PeteWattsUk's reviews (12)

Be warned if you are upgrading your router to use with xbox live (As I did with this) its riddled with connection issues- just scout on google for forums relating to this router and connection concenrs and you will find a ton of gamers all pullign their hair out as it fails to find DNS servers and other issues. It can be solved- but Belkins offshore customerservice centre is NO use at all.

If your savvy with net speak and know your Oing from your DNS and virtual firewalls then get this and set it up manually -otherwise STEER CLEAR if you want to use XBOX LIVE!!!

Four stars as a bit vague on the setup procedure, more instructions needed.
Had to call their help centre as just could not get my laptop to connect , it took half an hour to set up by phone .
Now very pleased with performance , style blends in nicely without being bulky or naff.
