Came to this conclusion last night...a real good rule of thumb:
Belkin is Broken4 out of 6 belkin hubs installed at the holiday inn i work for...mysteriously broken...just stop working after a few months...one at a time just goes out. Installing a netgear works perfectly.
2 different belkin routers, each at different locations...mysteriously stop routing. dhcp works, internal network traffic works...but ping yahoo.com or msn.com...nothing. restored factory default settings...nothing. upgrade firmware...nothing. install linksys...everything
so remember guys
BELKIN IS BROKEN
