I have a D-link and the throughput is far better than a belkin. The D-link setup is very user-friendly, yet includes advanced features.

HERE IS THE DATA I COLLECTED:
Linksys: 1854.53345 MHz band @point on bench
Netgear: 1730.98533 MHz band @point on bench
BOTH ROUTERS ARE SUPPOSED TO RUN AT 2.4GHz bandwidth according to both companies at optimal performance. What concerned me about the Netgear is that it was also emmiting a low yield magnetic flux, and that flux's density field was .000035 Teslas!! That is very high for a router, but in basic terms, that magnetic field causes interference, etc by not allowing signals to penetrate it. I don't know, but I would stay clear of NetGear...

I had the same problem with my Linksys w/ speedbooster but it was resolved when I updated my Intel ProSet II driver of my Desktop computer. So, it was something that had to do within the windows and not the router. Now my Desktop and Laptop computers are communicating with each other very well.
