If the red light you are talking about is almost an Amber color, this indicates that the router cannot detect or connect to the modem. From time to time the router may drop connection or the modem may have "hiccups". This is common. You need only to worry if it becomes a consistant issue, especially if it gets more frequent. But if it happens once in a blue moon, no need to worry.

The light below the routers main status light is the WPS security light. There is a button on the front of the router used for setup of WPS security. The light will blink if someone pressed the WPS button on the front of the router, and will turn off after 2-3 minutes if no connection is made.

Question

Support for 3TB discs

When are you going to release new firmware with a support for GPT (trivial rebuild of Linux kernel) allowing the router to operate with 3TB discs? As stated in another comment, partitioning is useless and new firmware is required.

Belkin releases firmware for our routers when issues arise such as bugs which need to be addressed for stable operation of the router.

The router has more than enough bandwith to support streaming or any sort of data intense connections. The real thing to be concerned with is whether or not you are getting a MINIMUM 10mbps per second from your ISP. If you are getting 10 or anything less, you are not going to be able to stream consistantly in HD, ESPECIALLY through a wireless connection.

Adding a Second Wireless Network to my home

Rather than running an ethernet cable from my existing wireless router, can I buy a 2nd wireless router, attach a feed coax to it and create a second wireless network in my home?

answer 2
The Belkin N600 does not have a coax connection on it so you will need to wire it via ethernet either to another router or to another modem. You can create a 2nd wireless network by attaching the N600 router to your current router.

Question

Will this be just right for my needs?

I am planning to switch from AT&T to Cox. The Cox package, however, does not include a wireless router but offered us the option to either buy our own router or buy/rent one of their own. The AT&T router we have since 2008 is a 2Wire Gateway 3800HGV-B. Will the N600 be equal, if not, better perform the 2Wire Router?

My house is 3 stories high (condo-type) and we have an HD TV and 2 WiFi laptops. I just need fast download wireless internet speed and strong WiFi signal. It's my feeling that I might overpay for getting the N750 but since I am no techgeek, I am unable to do a comparison between the 2Wire and the N600. Thanks.

The N600 router is dual band capable. Most modem/routers provided by ISP's are not.

You will need to make sure that your new service provider provides a modem with your service as the N600 is a router only. If they do not provide a modem you will need to obtain one as well.

The Belkin N600 cannot be set up as a wireless repeater. It can however be set up as a wireless access point but will need a direct cabled connection to your main router.

answer 2
TECHNICALLY yes it could be done with some routers. But to be honest, the chances of bricking the router or having constant connection issues is EXTREMELY high. You would have to flas the firmware of the router and install 3rd party software/firmware to allow this kind of setup. But MOST routers don't even have this kind of ability. Even though they look similar, repeaters or access points are very different in their manufacturing. These are the kinds of devices you would need to fix your connection issue. Try using a powerline ethernet kit to an access point on the other side of the house (the one with low signal). This should fix all of your issues. Good luck!

Hello Belkin;
I'm a new customer to this service; I recently bought the Kindle Fire and I don't have very good wireless connection in my home. After purchasing the Belkin N600 will I still need the modem provided to me by the cable company that I currently use to connect to internet?

Hi Hambone,
Yes, you will still need your modem. I am assuming your modem is not wireless, and that is why you bought your Belkin. You will need to run the Ethernet cable from your modem to your Belkin, so that it will work properly.

The Belkin N600 router does not have a built in modem so yes you will need your current ISP supplied modem. We do not manufacture any modem routers.

You would need to refer to your printer manufacturers documentation regarding entering a wireless network. Simply choose your new wireless network from the list of available networks and enter in the wireless password if needed.
