Belkin ADSL Router over budget, the modem router wireless G is excellent value for money.
For just £ 35 you get a gateway device with fully operational support for ADSL2 + for high bandwidth connections, four-port Ethernet routing and wireless connectivity G-spec.
Of course, even the Belkin itself has no great claims about the exploits of high performance wireless G modem router, rather than style is “perfect for creating a wireless network.”
As long as you do not need wireless N performance class, why pay more? At least that’s what we thought until we shot this deeply disappointing unit and began to generate performance metrics. The results are very ugly.
Interestingly, the worst of the problem is not the local network performance. Of course, stops at the back in our test with 1 GB of file transfer. But it is only marginally slower than its nearest competitor, Netgear DG834G.
Similarly, not much worse than the Netgear when it comes to the transmission of broadband video.
The harsh reality is that none of the G-spec routers does a great job of that. No, really looks horrible performance from Belkin includes broadband performance.
Although the timing of more than 16MB per second and therefore about 1 MB of faster routers here, download speeds were nothing less than glacial.
Wi-Fi or Ethernet connection type does not matter, you get essentially the same downstream pathetic performance throughout the 2.2MB per second mark. The fact that the current efficiency by more than 0.8 MB per second is much more acceptable is a comfort.
In fact, so he was shocked by the horrible catastrophic Belkin broadband performance below, which opened the last of our local PC World and took a second example. Long story short, it was so bad.
Indeed, a quick Google scan reveals a common history of pain of the unfortunate who have to pay good money for a device so poor.
In this context, the fact that Belkin has left with a user interface based on very little importance browser. Neither, frankly, no other niggles that we, as the lack of support for port forwarding or default access details such as IP router, username and password. All academic.
