I have found that our Ipad2 doesn't seem to have the wireless range that our other devices have so I ran a cable to the other end of the house and piggybacked a second router. It took care of the IPad and increased the signal and speed for all of our devices.

Question

Range and Connectivity Questions?

I am moving to a new house with a reasonably large backyard. I have a number of wireless devices that I would like to be able to use in the backyard. If the router is positioned near the backyard, but inside the house, will I be able to get the signal through the exterior wall?

This depends a great deal on what's running through that exterior wall. I found that moving my router to a different place along an Interior wall seemed to have some interference at the new spot. possibly because of wireing or materials in that wall. Also the best results with this router are going to be within 50 feet of the router. Though you can get a some what reduced signal from further. I took my phone, which uses a wifi connection when ever it can find one, and through one exterior wall I was still getting a strong three quarter strength signal at a full 100 feet from the router. I hope that this helps.

The Belkin N600 has been tested to cover a house of 3,000 sq ft in size and have a direct line of sight connection of up to 150 ft. Depending on the structure of your house this distance could be reduced. The most common building materials to affect wireless signal are tile, brick and stucco.

The specifications for the Belkin N600 router are actually on the packaging of the router itself as well as on our website. The N600 router does not have gigabit ethernet capabilities. The N450 and N750 models will have gigabit ethernet and are slated to be relased later this year.

On your printer, push wireless connection
It should give you 2 choices, choose Pin to connect.
then write down the number it gives you
then go to the Belkin setup page http://192.168.2.1/
click WiFi Protected Setup, Submit, then under # 1 Pin setup method
enter the Pin your printer gave you. click enroll the click OK on the printer. Takes about a minute and it will read "This device is connected"

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.

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.

Yes the Belkin N600 will work fine. You will only need additional cards if you wish to use the Dual Band feature of the router, otherwise it is fully compatible with all B, G and N300 wireless adapters.

If your arris device is just a modem, then connecting this belkin will simply route that signal wirelessly (hence, giving you wifi).

If your arris device is a modem/router, you technically don't need this belkin router at all.

if your arris device is a modem/router and the wifi range sucks, and you think the belkins range is better, go ahead and try it, but this belkin device is not inherently designed to extend wifi range.

Hi! It will not increase the range if you'll combine the F9K1102 router with your modem. If your modem has wireless capabilities, it is best if you'll add a range extender instead.

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.
