Check out this wireless router that doesn’t look like a router at all. It’s the Linksys E4200 Maximum Performance Dual-Band N Router, a feature-rich router for your home that doesn’t require you to be a geek to set up. But those who wants more control will also be amazed with the comprehensive options that you can also play with.
With dual-band (2.4GHz and 5GHz) support, the E4200 can delegate your throughput-heavy devices such as gaming consoles, media servers, into the less crowded and faster 5GHz band while the 2.4GHz can be used by your iPad and other less bandwidth-intensive wireless devices.
You won’t see an antenna on the E4200 because it has an internal antenna design instead. Don’t let it fool you though, this router’s effective range reaches up to 290 feet which is quite exceptional for a home router.
Other features include 4 Gigabit Ethernet ports for throughput up to 1,000 Mbps. There’s also a USB 2.0 port where you can plug in an external drive when you want to share its contents with other devices in the network.
Now if all those features seem to be daunting you, don’t be. With the included Cisco connect, you can set up your wireless home network in a jiffy, as in three steps! It will also allow you to easily manage your network, like set up parental controls or creating a separate network just for guests, just like you’re a professional network administrator.
The Linksys E4200 is the high-end product for their E-series line and costs Php9,288. A bit pricey but is worth every penny if you have a lot of things planned for your own wireless network. Of course, there’s also the option of choosing the lower-end Linksys E-series models but this one really takes the cake when it comes to features and design.
