Cisco Linksys E4200 Wireless Router Review

We live out in the country, so our Internet connection leaves much to be desired. We are lucky to recently have been able to upgrade from dial-up to a DSL connection from AT&T. However, it is the lowest DSL speed available and it seriously lags at time. With multiple computers and printers, it is important that we have a good wireless connection.
Thanks to Cisco we now have the Linksys E4200 Wireless Router. It has made such a difference for us and provides a secured connection, which I am embarrassed to say I had not given much thought to before.  It was very easy to hook up,
which is saying a lot considering how technologically challenged I am.

  • Gigabit Ethernet 4-port switch
  • Maximum speed up to 300 + 450 Mbps
  • USB port for shared storage
  • Built-In UPnP AV media server

Built-in USB Port and UPnP Media Server
The USB port lets you add a range of USB storage devices such as flash drives and external hard drives to share files at home or over the Internet for greater access to more information. The built-in UPnP AV Media Server enables seamless streaming of your video and media files to an Xbox 360, PS3, or other UPnP compatible device.

Easy to Manage
Cisco Connect software helps you customize your settings, and quickly add multiple devices to your network:

  • Create a separate, password protected network for guests
  • Limit access time and websites with Parental Controls
  • Access advanced network settings easily
One of my favorite features of the Linksys E4200 Wireless Router is the external USB port. You can plug your flash drive or external hard drive right into the E4200. You can put your music, videos, and pictures on the external hard drive and plug it right into the router. Every computer and device on your network will be able to access it no matter which computers are turned on.

The Linksys E4200 is perfect for anyone interested in building the ultimate connected home. It will handle your gaming consoles, eReaders, smartphones and anything else wireless you own. It lets parents easily set, use and manage their own home wireless. The E4200 is also perfect for college students setting up wireless in their first home away from home.  The Linksys E4200 router is far superior to any router we have previously used and I highly recommend it!
