    I'm on my 3rd router this year. The first kept timing out. I could stay on line fine, just couldn't download and stream anything.It might download 2 meg of a 10 meg file, or half of a 120 meg file, but it would always time out. Belkin tech said it was bad and I returned it to Best Buy for a new one. Worked fine, except I was unable to set a password. Every time I did, the wireless worked the wired computers would not. After abour 4 hours with 4 different Belkin techs (most on hold) they said they would send a new one. Just hooked it up and same problem as the first. Always times out. The security password works now, but back to the same problem as the first one. And yes, everything is fine when I connect direct. Had other routers before, no prob. Are these things junk????
