It's nice to see that none of the routers in this test perform poorly, but a few of them don't seem to take advantage of the extra data stream. We would still choose the 300n Netgear WNDR3800 over no less than nine of the fourteen 450N routers in this...

Overall the E4200 is a pretty decent product from a well-known company. It is currently their high-end consumer product and it brings a lot of features to the table. While some Linksys products have had a horrible track-record in the past...

There's very little to be said about the Linksys E4200 except that it works very well and is by far the best looking router out there. The feature set is also solid, but the only thing is that you will really pay a premium for the brand and the...

We weren’t impressed with the last Linksys-branded router that passed through Maximum Lab North. The dual-band Linksys E3000 (in reality, a rebadged Linksys WRT610N) delivered humdrum performance and lacked a number of important features we expect to...

Cisco's dual-band E4200 is the first router we've come across that's rated at 450Mbits/sec. That sounds impressive but, as with all routers, the real-world speeds you can achieve differ vastly from these headline speeds. Also, that top speed is...

If we had to choose between the Linksys E4200 and ASUS RT-56U based on looks alone, then our verdict is clear. We'd pick the Linksys contender without question. The stylish E4200's deviation from the usual (and boring) router dress code is also what...

The E4200 is priced at Rs. 9,000. Pretty high for a standard router meant for home use. For users who are looking for simple routers for everyday use, this will fall out of their budget and isn't something that's starkly different from mainstream...

Cue Cisco’s newest addition to their consumer line of routers, the Linksys E4200. Don’t worry E3000 and even WRT610N v2 owners, you don’t need to go and shell out for an upgrade just yet. However, those looking to upgrade their home network with a...

If there's one device you're probably not thinking of replacing, it's your router. Typically bundled into the modem for your internet connection, there's little reason to think of an upgrade until something breaks. But with more and more devices...

A few months ago Linksys announced their new E4200 Wireless N router. Linksys was kind enough to send out a review unit, which I have been using for a few weeks. The dual band router sports both a 2.4 and 5 GHz radio setup and a six-pack of internal...

The Linksys E4200 router is our new Editors' Choice pick for wireless routers. Cisco's device offers the best speeds, easy setup, and a sleek design. Our only issues are the price and total cost of ownership. The router itself costs $159, and in order...

The Linksys E4200 has good looks and good functions. We like its ability to run 2.4GHz and 5GHz wireless networks simultaneously, and also how it can turn a regular USB drive into a network-attached storage device. However, it was a little slower than...
