The Bottom Line The Belkin N+ Wireless Router is a great performer with excellent range and throughput speed. If its bulky design and lack of 5GHz frequency support don't put you off, the router is worth every penny of its $100 or so price tag. Underpowered but supereasy to use and affordable, the Linksys E1200 makes a good entry-level Wireless-N router for home users. The Netgear N600 Wireless Dual Band Router WNDR3400 is a great dual-band router for any home at an affordable price. Its lack of Gigabit Ethernet might steer enthusiasts away, however. The good-looking D-Link HD Media Router 1000 DIR-657 is a very good router, though it doesn't offer much over the company's previous model, the DIR-655.
