I previously had a cheap unbranded hand me down wireless (g) modem router, it needed restarting every 3 hours or so. I had almost no reception in my bedroom at the opposite end of the house to my phoneline, which was the whole point of the wireless network.

I unboxed my beautiful N+ baby from Play.com, and plugged it in; sorted!
Incredible range, Incredible speed!
SO EASY to set up and configure security settings, and I now have it connected to my Wii, DS and PSP, as well as wired to my other computer sharing the internet connection.

I had checked other websites and this was only listed as a "wireless router" or in other places a "wireless modem router".
I felt that name was misleading as the box also shows this item connected to a modem. The truth is, in fact, this is a modem and router all in one, as shown in the diagrams on Play.com.
(Which is what I wanted! Thank you Play for the diagrams!)

Do not hesitate to purchase this wireless modem router, it is without a doubt the king of wireless (N+) modem routers.

Hi

Following on from the comments about connecting to xbox live with the microsoft wireless router. I had the same issues, tried everything i could find online (upnp, firewall ports etc.. and checked with belkin.)

turns out you need to manually configure your DHCP settings on the dashboard, even if your IP is dynamic. This is even more annoying because it is the complete reverse of what xbox support tell you to do.

Apart from this (which very nearly claimed my sanity) i had no issues and the product works like a charm with both pc and xbox and DS.

  Forget about it if you have an Xbox

Although the modem itself is decent, and the USB port pretty handy, you can forget about this if you want to use an Xbox 360 and the Microsoft wifi adaptor.

Unable to see the primary wireless SSID, and only able to use the guest SSID (therefore blocking access to the internal network) makes it unusable for streaming music, using Windows Media Center.

The worst thing is Belkin support are completely useless in every single way and unable to help.
