Belkin N600DB – SUCKTASTIC AWARD
In a word, BLECH! Save your money and buy something better. Ok, I will say that if you want to use it in the default configuration out of the box, it's probably ok. I, however, need something a BIT MORE complex. I need TO ADD something that will act AS an access point AND this thing has SOME serious drawbacks.
- It takes forever TO power cycle this thing. If you need TO do, it can drive TO coffee shop AND GET yourself a latte. It might be ready WHEN you GET back.
- If you change the IP address you will have TO power cycle it. I'm sorry 192.168.2.1 doesn't WORK FOR me. Otherwise you'll get a "Duplicate Administrator" error because it doesn't actually authenticate. It just checks your IP address. AND it will store that IP AS the ONLY "Administrator" until you power cycle the device. That means regardless OF ANY password used.
- I am AT network professional AND I still can't figure how to tell this thing what it's IP IS AND what the DEFAULT gateway IS.
- Their SET up utility IS flaky. Ok', I'm trying TO run IN it IN VM because I run Ubuntu (Oneric Ocelot) ON my laptop.
