Congrats Anonymous-japaige2!!

Father's Day Gift Idea #7


Linksys E4200

Maximum Performance Dual-Band N Router
"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

Maximum Wireless Speed-The Linksys E4200 offers 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.

Superior Wireless Coverage-Built with leading 802.11n wireless technology, the Linksys E4200 offers maximum range to create a powerful wireless network. Full 3x3 MIMO antenna array boosts signal strength to provide exceptional coverage and reliability so you can enjoy your wireless network from anywhere in your home.

The Power of Dual-Band-Double your network bandwidth with dual-band N (2.4 and 5 GHz) designed to avoid interference and maximize throughput for smoother and faster HD video streaming, file transfers, and wireless gaming.

SpeedBoost-Higher quality antenna technology helps to maintain high speeds across greater distances throughout your home for maximum wireless coverage and in-home mobility.

Advanced Security-Keep Wi-Fi freeloaders and Internet threats at bay with WPA/WPA2 encryption and SPI firewall to help keep your network protected.

Benefits of Gigabit-Use the four Gigabit Ethernet (10/100/1000) ports for quick file sharing, 10x faster than standard Ethernet, between other Gigabit-enabled devices like computers, hard drives, and servers.

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.

Home Theater Ready-Bring the ultimate entertainment experience to your home by connecting computers, Internet-ready TVs, game consoles, media players and more to your wireless network and the Internet. QoS traffic prioritization technology designed to deliver your time-sensitive Internet traffic efficiently so you can enjoy fast downloads, smooth video and music streaming, and gaming and VoIP.

Quick to Install-Cisco Connect software helps you set up your home wireless network in three easy steps.

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"

What we thought:  I am not a huge techie, but I do know that with this router our connection is waaay faster!  The E4200 was super easy to install and even I was able to figure it out:)  This router has so many cool features!  Streaming video is seamless now and I love how effortlessly the router can connect to our TV.  A huge plus is the advanced protection to keep wi-fi freeloaders from clogging up our network.  One the biggest differences I've noticed is the speed increase on the second floor...I can take my work upstairs now and get a quality connection!!  This would be an excellent gift for the computer-loving dad this Father's Day!!  ABCD Diaries gives the Cisco Linksys E4200 an A+!

Buy It: Find super awesome gift for your techie Dad at computer stores nationwide or at the Cisco store online!

Win It: Cisco has generously offered one ABCD Diaries reader a Linksys E4200, a $180 value! To enter, follow our blog via GFC.
