I am impressed, immediatly after plugging it in, setting up the security settings and such, I noticed a huge difference. Not only was I not getting constantly disconnected (I have yet to actually get disconnected from the network), but also I noticed that the one computer with the g networking adapter got an increase of internet speed from about 1-2Mbps to a little over 6Mbps, and so now web pages come up almost instantly.
Also the configuration pages of the router are so easy to understand and use and again work much faster than the previous wireless b router I had.
I would highly recommend this product to everybody, the particular one I got was the wireless n router that is around $120 (frequently on sale for $100), and is located here: http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Satellite?c...d=8437836001B01
Since 802.11g is still the more common standard today, I'm still using it. I have thought about getting the N or Pre-N type routers before, but it wasn't really needed. I rarely use file transfers in my local network and the range that the G provides is more than enough for now
I own a Belkin Enhanced Wireless BD6E8D.Model#F6D4230-4 V3. N150 Router.When I bought a MB300 Motorola Backflip cellphone it did not support the and mode format of the router,so my son changed it to a G mode and it worked fine connecting to the WiFi . I have since replaced that phone with a Samsung Captivate Galaxy phone and would like to convert the routers signal back to the and mode which I understand supports that. Can I get the procedure for accomplishing this task from someone please. Thomas-question by Thomas

Yes simply login to the routers control interface via the IP 192.168.2.1 (might be different but thats the Belkin default) either through your browser or via telnet. Once there you can go through the Wizard which will help you select the mode you want your router to run in.
Now to get back on topic,
G has become a very common band to use today but reduced wireless speeds can also be caused by wireless telephones and similar equipment (especially if you live in an apartment block) so if you keep finding your connection isn't as good as it can be try switching the channel of the router over to different channel numbers and test each one out until you get a speed you are satisfied with.
QUOTEAs for home and small business, Huawei B970B is the best one. Huawei B970B is a 3G modem router with an embedded 3G chip lets you surf wirelessly. We tell you how to set-up this wireless gateway router. Well, you can do as the user guides instructions, or do as the follow steps:

QUOTEPeople who are using Internet more or less know what¡¯s Router like, and what WiFi hotspot Router use for. Huawei D100 is the very Wireless hotspot Router added one important function: supported 3G Wireless Broadband USB dongle. It makes people¡¯s life easy & convenient.
Huawei D100 router is very small petite. Yg shape small and elegant it is suitable for all people who have mobility eminence. Yg model sturdy enough so that you can take them wherever you travel. White. Wireless Router does not include the USB modem as a modem unless some E1550 and K3760. Unlocked and can be used for all GSM 3G operators
There is one RJ45 port & one USB port on Huawei D100. RJ45 port could be used as WAN Or Lan connected with Ethernet cable it which helps you transform ADSL signal to WIFI signal. And the USB port of course is for 3G Wireless broadband USB dongle. Huawei D100 3G Router could support different types of 3G Wireless Broadband USB dongle which is no matter working in CDMA, WCDMA or TD-SCDMA. It¡¯s a highlight of HUAWEI D100 3G Router
The Huawei D100 Router is a WiFi router with a difference. Instead of plugging it into your landline broadband connection, you slot a standard 3G USB dongle into the top, at which point it shares out the 3G broadband with any device in the area. This is perfect if you¡¯re travelling and need to give the family their own WiFi connection in a hotel or holiday let.
Just plug your unlocked Mobile Broadband dongle into the router and you¡¯ve got access to the internet that you can share with wi-fi enabled devices such as a PC, Mac or laptop. You can even connect more than one computer at a time, using just one 3G dongle. The WiFi hotspot router is only compatible with Huawei Mobile Broadband dongles.
QUOTEIf you use FaceTime often, you¡¯re probably familiar with how frustrating it is to have to get on a Wi-Fi network in order to use the service. Although you can Facetime with some application on you jailbreaked iPhone, it¡¯s still a big problem for those beginners or person don¡¯t want jailbreak their iPhones.
In my opinion, if a cell phone can¡¯t make video call on the go (3G Facetime), the video call function is useless, because when I was at home or in the office, I could use Gmail, MSN and many other applications to make a video call on PC.
And now this issue will get resolved with iOS 5 according to report.
The message first unveiled on modem3g.com It¡¯s said a reader post a screen shot, in which iOS 5 shows an alert box asking the user to turn on cellular data or WiFi to use FaceTime. By playing around with the iOS 5 preferences in Settings->General->Network, we¡¯ve found how to replicate the ¡°issue¡±: turn off Cellular Data in the Network tab, open FaceTime¡¯s prefs inside the Settings app, and you should get the alert box. If it doesn¡¯t come up, try to turn FaceTime off and on again, making sure Cellular Data is still set to off. iOS 5 will tell you that you need data (3G) or WiFi to use FaceTime.
