Fri, 25 Jan 2008 Belkin N1 Wireless Modem Router Review
- Manufacturer: Belkin
- Pros: Good Mac support and ease of use
- Cons: None
- Price: £96 (from Dabs.com)
- Star rating:
You can always rely on Belkin to get its Mac support and ease of use right, and the company didn’t disappoint us with the N1 router.
When you open the box there’s a very clear Quick Start brochure that leads you through the basic process of plugging the router in and getting it working properly. Even the glowing symbols on the front of the router are bigger than normal and clearly labelled so that you can see exactly what information they’re trying to convey.
It was a little careless of Belkin to slap a label on their CD that merely said ‘Windows 2000 and XP’, with no mention of the Mac. However, the installer does run on the Mac, and it quickly guides you through the process of setting up your wireless network.
