    I supplied one of these to a client. Unfortunately, though initially it
    seemed to work well, he is now reporting some very specific problems
    with it. When he tries to use it:

    logging on to Hotmail
    to place a bid on eBay
    with Software Update
    posting to a certain web forum (reading it is fine)

    it won't work. For example, the web browser will report that it can't
    receive any data, or Software Update will consistently get some of the
    way but not all.

    It *seems* that only that particular connection fails (I'm asking the
    client to confirm this) and not all access to the Internet. Rebooting
    the router will solve the problem for a bit, but it will then return.

    The problems occur on both wired and wireless clients.

    The client is using Demon ADSL in London.

    He previously changed the router's MTU to 1430 from 1450, and thought it
    had fixed the problem, but it returned.

    Any suggestions, or experiences with this device?

    Sounds like the problem I had with my Netgear router; related to new
    equipment BT put in the exchange. Solution was to swop router.

    You are describing a common problem with the F5D7630.

    Its resolved by updating the firmware on the device - available from
    Belkin's web site (

    Really? Well, I'm very pleased.

    But I will give it a couple of days before allowing myself to breathe a
    final sigh of relief over it.
