Belkin AC 1750 DB Review – Wi-Fi Dual-Band AC+ Gigabit Router – F9K1115

Buy it on Amazon – http://lon.tv/zec0j (affiliate link)

If you’re a techie looking for something advanced to play with, look elsewhere. This is a basic router with a very ‘consumer friendly’ interface that is designed more for the general consumer market than for enthusiasts. That said, it does perform nicely and is a great way for the non-tech savvy to boost their wired and wireless network speeds without a lot of headaches and aggravation. Setup is simple and in plain english.

Parents will like that it can lock out specific devices from Internet access at certain times of the day. It also has a built in filtering feature to prevent going to adult websites and other sites that may have been compromised by malware.

It has four gigabit ethernet ports which will work better with network attached storage devices (NAS), it also supports dual band wireless AC for faster wireless speeds provided your wireless devices also support that networking standard. Many new devices do support AC, but other devices a year or more older do not. So check to make sure your computers and tablets will benefit from the speed boost prior to making the investment. On my iPad Air 2 the router was able to push about 450 megabits per second over the air which is pretty decent.

My only real concern is that it’s doesn’t have a password initially on its control panel nor does it really push the user to set one up. There should always be passwords on control panels and the router should be enforcing that.

How do you get the Parental Control off

dbsasuke says:

ay you have a laptop with AC and a dongle with ac in a NAS. Will that improve the bad write speed when writing from your laptop to a NAS in your home?

Bo 3li says:

is it possible to block or redirect websites such as youtube or Instagram, and is that blocks apps to get in access to youtube or Instagram?

Dana Goyette says:

OpenWRT supports this device. (Unfortunately, the USB 3.0 port doesn’t work properly on 15.05.)

Damain Swaby says:

Can this connect to the ps4?

Mr Blackknight343 says:

i have some thing to ask when i do a speedtest on speedtest.net and when i use it it says the ip address is in mississippi ma and i live in NH how do i change it so that it is nh and not Mississippi

John Byy says:

You should check if there is way to put either tomato or ddwrt firmware there. Orginal firmware are in 90% usless out dated and really limit what device really can do. It would be great if you could check performance with orginal firmware and alternative.

Juan Salinas says:

How do i change it to 5 ghz

Sean says:

Looks like it’s cheaply made, like it would break easily.

ExplicitFire says:

Belkin wifi is shit. My Belkin only gives off about 7.25 Mbps. Which if you think about that, separating with 5 people, that’s slow AF!! 7 divided by 5 = 1.4 Mbps. *Slaps couch* SHIT!!

True story about the wifi BTW

Jeff sHo says:

I have the old n600, my ps3 only gets up to 13mbps, I’ve tried 3 different repeaters ect. With this work for my ps3 my main pc hits 60mbps.

Gary Bristow says:

I have a AC 900 DB Belkin Wi-Fi Dual-Band Can this be used for both DSL and Cable?

Eric Brunhammer says:

I guess it’s been a while since I bought a router, I bought my ASUS WL-520G back in 2009, and that beast is still kicking.  This Belkin just seems expensive for “consumer” device.  I think I paid somewhere in the $60-80 range for this, and that was kinda high at the time.  I would hate to see what ones in that price range are like now.

Pete Cossie says:

absolute piece of crap keeps restarting

MobileDecay says:

Cool. I have the Netgear nighthawk which is awesome! Not the same idea as this though. =)

beanboy89 says:

I’m in the market for a new router, so I’ll definitely stay tuned the next few weeks.

If you aren’t savvy enough to change it yourself there is no difference with default password or no password..
