Belkin N750 DB Wireless N+ Router as access point
Looking to see if anyone is using the above router (model F9K1103v1) as an access point.
Having ongoing problems with the router dropping the wired network connection, or just hanging up.
PC is a old Dell 4600 running XP (up to date with maintenance) network speed 100mb.
On the wireless side, using a MacBook (model A1278) running 10.6.8 and connecting at 2.4GHz the response is very slow.
The old Linksys wireless-G (model WRT54G v5) 100mb I replaced was a much better performer, but trying to upgrade my entire network to gigabit.
I did update the Belkin N750 with the latest firmware, no difference. I had no major problems with the Belkin as the primary router, but now am using a Linksys AC1900 (model EA6900) as the primary router.
I do all my backups across my network, the Linksys AC1900 has a USB 3 port, where the Belkin has only a USB 2 port.
Any advice or suggestions are welcome.
After going to the website for Belkin support and looking around, figured I was wasting my time there.
Stage two question will probably be: looking for a good gigabit wireless router to serve as an access point, if anyone has any suggestions.
