We liked the N1 Vision router that Belkin launched last year, although it was a little pricey at the time (£140). So we were pleased to see the more affordable N+ router with its added features that let you share and back up files and save energy.
That’s good value for money, especially as the N+ includes both a Wireless-N router and an ADSL modem, so you don’t need to use a separate modem to connect to the internet, as is the case with some of these routers. There are also four Ethernet ports for wired connections, and a USB port that allows you plug in a USB hard drive and use it as shared storage on your network.
