My WRT54G v4.0 (with DD-WRT) finally died today, so I went to Costco and bought the Belkin "Play" wireless router (info here: http://www.belkin.com/IWCatProductPa...uct_Id=509868)
Anyway, it sucks! It takes at least 5 seconds before it connects to a webpage (Chrome just says "Resolving Host"). It's like this through wireless-N and ethernet! This is horrible! My WRT54G was fast as hell.
When plugged in directly to the cable modem, every webpage that I go to loads within a second or two.
I bought a Belkin router a few months ago to maybe get an upgrade, but I took it back because it was also slow.
Not sure if it's a dud or what, but I'm never getting a Belkin wireless router again.
While writing this post, the damn thing just reset itself! What a hunk of junk. No wonder everyone left negative reviews on this thing.
