Medialink Wireless N Router Is A Good Buy: Limited Time 55% OFF!

  1. 1. Why Medialink Wireless N Router Is A Good Buy?By Ralph KazinskiIf you are looking for a budget router that is good not only on your wallet but alsogood at its job, then you should seriously look at the Medialink Wireless NRouter. A lot of people are skeptical that this budget Wireless N Router canperform to their expectation but the truth is that it does. A testimony to this is thehigh number of owners reviewing the Medialink Wireless N Router and giving itvery high praises. Medialink - Wireless N Broadband Router - 150 Mbps - 2.4 Ghz - 802.11nHere is what an owner has to say about the Medialink Wireless N Router:5.0 out of 5 stars Dont worry about the skeptics...., June 26, 2012By R. Sherborne (MA, USA)Up until now Ive always purchased brand name wireless routers, having owned various modelsfrom D-link, Belkin and Linksys since 2003, none of which cost less than $100 (apart from theBelkin, which was pretty mediocre). Every single model from these brand name manufacturerswas to some degree unstable, with loss of connectivity to the router or to the internet requiringthe router to be rebooted. My last D-link model had deteriorated to the point of needing a rebootpractically every day. Id also had a few years using a Verizon FIOS branded wireless router,which never needed rebooting once, so once I was in the market for a new router, I was mostlyinterested in stability over and above performance.I had never heard of Mediabridge until I found the Medialink Wirless N router on Amazon. Ithad by far the highest average rating, from the largest number of reviewers of any wirelessrouter on Amazon. On reading some of the reviews and comments, there seemed to be acampaign by some to discredit the reviews and product, even though many didnt actually seemto have any first hand experience with the product. There seemed to be accusations of themanufacturer posting fake reviews to boost the average rating. Many genuine reviewers whodhad a bad experience had seemingly been well looked after by Mediabridges customer support,but there were even some skeptics claiming that there was something fishy or underhand aboutthat. This initially steered me away from the Medialink, but after going back and studying the Page 1 of 6
  2. 2. mixed reviews of the brand name offerings, most costing much more, I decided to take a punt onthe unknown brand. I also decided to follow-up with a review depending on my experience,something Ive never done on Amazon before.Once I received my new router I was initially very happy with the packaging and contents, andthe appearance of the router itself. Everything seemed to be just as good quality as I wouldexpect from the big brand names, and the router itself was actually more compact than myimpression from the photos. The good impressions continued with the installation. The includedliterature was clear and informative, and I had it up and running in a few short minutes. Therouters web interface is very good, with the only small criticism being that you have to manuallyenter MAC addresses when setting up DHCP binding, where as most router interfaces allowMAC addresses to be copied. Other than that, the interface is one of the clearest Iveexperienced of any router.So far so good, but as stability was my main concern I wanted to run the router for a few weeksbefore writing a review. Ive now been using this router for over two weeks, and so far it hasbeen totally stable (no reboots needed), with good speed (Im probably limited by the wirelessdevice in my laptops, if anything). The range and strength of signal is as good or better than anyprevious router Ive used, despite being the first to have a built in antennae. More time will helpevaluate the stability side of things, but so far Im very happy with this routers performance andquality for the price. I would say to anyone who is possibly doubting this product based on thenumerous skeptics whore questioning the high ratings, that in my (admittedly limited)experience, this router is as good as the high ratings suggest. And it does seem to be backed upby accessible and attentive customer support, although Ive fortunately not had any reason totrouble them.Ill write an update if my experience changes, but otherwise Im very happy with this router.Medialink Wireless N Router SpecificationsHere are the specifications of the Medialink Wireless N Router:- Wireless Data Transfer Rate: 150 Mbps- Supports 802.11b, 802.11g and 802.11n Adapters Operating on 2.4Ghz Wavelength- Includes 4 Port Ethernet Switch, Wireless Access Point, and Firewall- Wired Data Transfer Rate: 10/100 Mbps (Ethernet 10 Base-T)- Routing and Firewall Protocol: DHCP- Antenna: (1) Internal- Power Adapter:INPUT: 100-240V (suitable for international use), 50/60Hz, 0.3AOUTPUT: 9V - 0.6A (600mA)DC Plug Dimension: 5.5mm (Outer Diameter) x 2.5mm (Inner Diameter) x 10mm (Length) Page 2 of 6

After reading so many positive reviews, I kept teetering on whether or not I shouldtry this one out... especially since I hadnt heard of the company and the price point was so low.Eventually I figured "what could it hurt" and ordered it. I immediately got an email from thecompany thanking me for the order which included the support information if needed. That was anice touch. Page 3 of 6
  4. 4. The bottom line is that Im VERY glad I ordered this. Set up was a breeze if you follow the verysimple instructions to the letter. I was up and running in minutes.My other concern was how well it would sing with my Cisco Wireless N Bridge(The Cisco-Linksys WET610N Dual-Band Wireless-N Gaming and Video Adapter)in my living room whichis notoriously finicky with non-Cisco product integration. Im very pleased to report that itimmediately started communicating once set up, and has been rock solid for 3 days streaming HiDef 720p and 1080p video. The signal strength is fantastic and has out performed other routers Ihave owned in the past. Time will tell how it holds up over the long run. I will update this post ifanything goes awry.Finally as icing on the cake, the router just looks cool. Thats always a happy bonus!The only negative I could find is that the tech support line isnt 24 hours. Seeing as how I didntneed it, I suppose that really isnt a negative in the truest sense.Im a heavy Amazon user who doesnt even write reviews yet felt compelled to for this gem. AGreat product, at a great price, and easy set up. Who could ask for more?*** EDIT 06/14/11 Wow, there are a ton of comments on my review and I thought it would be agood idea to chime in again. Here we are about 8 months after my purchase and the router isstill going strong. I have noticed that there was some signal degradation about 3 months in, but Ichanged the broadcast channel and it cleared up. Whether that was a fix or coincidence I dontknow. As far as I can remember it only dropped once and I had to reset it. Not sure what peopleare expecting, but I thought (and still think) I got fantastic bang for the buck. And to answersome of the people implying I somehow work for the company that makes or markets it: Iabsolutely do not! I just was pleasantly surprised and wanted to share.Some recent customer feedbacks:5.0 out of 5 stars Great Wireless Router, June 26, 2012By NJMagnessUSMCI purchased this Medialink Wireless n router because of the already high customer ratings. Itwas simple to set up, has worked fine so far, was cheap, and also looks good. Overall its aboutall you could want in a wireless router. Definitely worth the price. With the set of instructionsand CD that comes with it, theres really no way to f*** this up if you have had any experiencewith technology. Which you probably do if youre reading this review on Amazon. The onlyworry I had coming into this purchase was that I had never heard of the brand before. The othercustomer reviews convinced me to trust them and Im glad I did. Page 4 of 6
