Cisco spices up home networking with Linksys E series routers


Let’s face it: routers are not sexy. Their usual blocky designs and unflattering rabbit-ear antennaes is usually more than enough to ensure that they’re hidden away from sight in most living rooms. Not Cisco’s E series of routers though. These gateways of the internet are drop dead gorgeous, and to be honest they don’t look like routers at all. The E4200, E3000, E2000 and E1000 are aimed at home users that want easy to use, yet powerful routers that help you connect not only to the internet, but to other devices in your house.

The E4200 holds a special place in our hearts because it manages to combine style, function and tech in one extremely sexy package. Seriously, if that doesn’t scream modern home to you, we don’t know what will. The E4200 features simultaneous dual-band (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz), high-performance Wireless-N technology for smoother HD video streaming, wireless gaming and file transfers. It also has four Gigabit Ethernet (10/100/1000 Mbps) ports for faster file sharing with other USB port and provides connectivity to storage devices for file sharing at home or over the Internet.
