Cisco revises E4200 N router to v2, adds speed

updated 02:10 am EST, Wed December 14, 2011

Improved wireless and USB drive speeds

Cisco today launched an updated version of its dual-band "N" home router, now dubbed the E4200v2, which features networking speeds of up to 450Mbps in each of its two bands (2.4GHz and 5GHz), totalling up to 900 Mbps performance. The company also launched an app for iOS and Android devices to allow users to make configuration changes to the network.

The E4200v2 continues to offer the same features as the earlier version, including a 3x3 MIMO antenna array, four Gigabit Ethernet ports, WPA2 encryption and SPI firewall protection and IPv6 support. It is designed to be incorporated in a family network that includes home theater as well as gaming computers or consoles and other internet-ready devices. Internal and external amplifiers combine with the six antennas to reduce the possibility of dead spots, and the Virtual USB feature makes it easy to add peripheral devices such as printers and NAS drives.

The new app, called Cisco Connect Express for iOS or Android, work with the built-in Cisco Connect software embedded in the router to make monitoring or making changes to the network more user-friendly than the standard web interface. The apps, which work with most of the Linksys E- and X-series wireless routers, are free of charge. The E4200v2 router is now available and sells for $200.

    How many times a day do you need to reset it to make it work properly?
