Updated 7/18/2011: AP switch clarification

Belkin has a new N router line that has been completely revamped from head to toe. Out with its poorly-received "app" based Surf, Share, Play and Play Max line and in with five new models. The comparison chart in Figure 1 pulled from Belkin's site summarizes the key differentiators except for frequency band.

There are two three-stream N models in the lineup, the 2.4 GHz single band N450 and the subject of this review, the N750 DB. As seems to be the trend with most dual-band three-stream N routers of late, the N750 DB provides up to 450 Mbps link rate on the 5 GHz radio only. And you only get that rate if you have a matching three-stream N adapter and use 40 MHz bandwidth mode.

The new line retains the old one's focus on simplicity and ease of setup. As Figure 2 shows, there are only two front panel indicators, so as not to confuse non-techies.

Don't go looking for network status indicators on the back panel, either. Figure 3 shows the only ones you get are for the two USB 2.0 ports that you can plug printers and drives into for sharing.

Rear panel callouts

Belkin ships the N750 DB with both a WAN port cable and the power supply already plugged in. They also have the usual installation CD that walks you through setup and installs a "Router Manager" app. As usual, I didn't try either one.


You can't really see a lot of detail in the fuzzy FCC ID photo in Figure 4. Fortunately, the internal pictures file has closeup shots of the key components.

The main CPU and 5 GHz radio come from a Ralink RT3883F 3X3 N SoC. This is a second-generation 3X3 N device from Ralink, that's also in TRENDnet's TEW-691GR and probably in the just-available TEW-692GR.

The 2.4 GHz radio is a Ralink RT3092 2X2 N SoC. A Realtek RTL8367R 5+1-port Gigabit Ethernet switch handles the WAN and LAN ports and I was able to make out 64 MB of RAM. I couldn't see how much flash, but my guess is 8 MB.


Belkin has never been big on cramming a lot of routing features into its products and the N750 DB continues the tradition. Here's the summary:


  • DHCP, Static, PPPoE, Telstra BigPond/OptusNet CableWAN types
  • DHCP server with lease time adjust
  • UPnP support (no exposed controls)
  • Built-in dynamic DNS client for DynDNS
  • DMZ host
  • WAN ping allow / deny
  • 20 virtual servers (single port forwards) with separate source and destination ports
  • Three level manual uplink QoS for eight services (single port)
  • PPTP and IPsec VPN pass through (no exposed controls)
  • Automatic upload and download QoS
  • Logging
  • USB SMB/CIFS storage sharing
  • UPnP / DLNA media server (USB storage)

Wireless features

  • Switchable AP / Router mode (software switch)
  • Guest SSID on 2.4 GHz radio only
  • MAC address filtering
  • WEP, WPA / WPA2 Personal support
  • Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) support, pushbutton and PIN
  • Auto and manual channel set

Missing features

  • IPv6 support
  • DHCP reservations
  • Port range forwarding
  • Triggered port forwarding
  • QoS rule adjustment
  • URL / keyword filtering
  • Email alerts or log sends
  • Transmit power adjust
  • HTTPs admin access
  • Firewall rule scheduling
