Belkin has updated its N1 Vision router since we ﬁrst saw it by adding an ADSL 2+ modem. Once you have the router in your hand, it's easy enough to spot the extra port, but the biggest clue when you're shopping is the change in model code from F5D8232-4 to F5D8632-4
Full credit to Belkin for coming up with a router that stands out from the crowd. Based on the N1 model this N1 Vision stands vertically, so that you can clearly see the LCD display.
So the N1 Vision is basically a router with a screen, isn't it? Indeed, so rather than focusing on the traditional router functions, we'll talk more about what's new. The setup is seamless and is disc-less. The screen is undoubtedly a luxury, but it's handy.
The big benefit of 802.11n, when it arrives, will be the data rate; theoretically it can hit 540Mbps or even higher, 10 times the standard 802.11g speed of 54Mbps. You'll need to wait for 12 months at least for that
