Cisco Linksys Routers and Access Points

The Cisco Linksys E4200 or Cisco Linksys E3200 are performance and feature leaders in their price classes. Both have simultaneous dual-band 2.4 and 5GHz radios. (The 5GHz band is typically much less noisy and crowded.) They also have gigabit Ethernet switches, QOS (quality of service) support for prioritizing streaming media, and USB ports for shared storage drives. The E3200 is slightly less expensive yet full-featured enough for most users.
