We have a horrible wireless signal in our home. Between me using the computer 24/7 and three gaming systems trying to also make a connection at the same time - we lose the signal at a minimum of twice a day. Of course when we do and my kids (and even my husband) get dropped from a game they are playing and guess what - it's all Moms fault and then the complaints about our router comes into play.
Needless to say you can imagine how thrilled I was to review the Linksys E4200 - Maximum Performance Dual Band Router. Now basically I'm an idiot when it comes to how these things work, so set up was of course left up to my husband. He connected it, ran the disc and with out much other effort we were pretty much good to go. He just had to adjust some passwords and settings on the gaming systems.
The Linksys E4200 offers various top performance features.
- Simultaneous Dual-Band N (2.4 & 5 GHz)
- Gigabit Ethernet 4-port switch
- Maximum speed up to 300 + 450 Mbps
- USB port for shared storage
- Built-In UPnP AV media server
With ultra fast speed to connect your computers, Internet-ready TVs, game consoles, and other Wi-Fi devices at transfer rates up to 300 + 450 Mbps speed for a premium home network experience. Exactly what was needed in our home for running multiple Wi-Fi devices at once. The built in USB and UPnP Media Server was a feature I could appreciate for file sharing and my husband was thrilled with the UPnP Media Server feature, that providing seamless streaming of video and media files to an Xbox 360, PS3, and other UPnP compatible device. The UPnP Media Server feature needed to be explained to me by my husband, because I didn't get it.
The Dual Broad Band power allows for minimum interference and maximum output for our wireless gaming. This is also good for HD video streaming and file transfers.
With a Full 3x3 MIMO antenna array your signal is boosted to provide maximum coverage from anyplace in the home. Another feature we found beneficial. We had one T.V in the computer room with one gaming system, so it was close to the signal and then we actually had a T.V on the floor next to the main T.V in the livingroom each with gaming systems hooked up - again to keep them close to a signal.
This created a headache for me for two reasons one if I was trying to get work done on the computer and had someone basically right next to me playing a video game, I would get VERY frustrated. Second the set up in the livingroom made for a lot of yelling over who was cheating off of whose screen - Yes, gaming is very important in this house. Sad but true.
Of course the Linksys E4200 is also equipt with WPA/WPA2 encryption and SPI firewall to help keep your network protected. Have a home theater system? The Home Theater System ready - Linksys E4200 maybe just what you need.
