We reviewed the Linksys E3000 a few days ago, which included every feature a power user would want, but it also cost a pretty penny. But what if you wanted a basic router - nothing more, nothing else? Cisco has a solution for your problem in the form of the Linksys E1000.
Small enough to be invisible
The E1000 is a low-cost router with Wi-Fi N support and comes with the easy to set-up Cisco Connect Software. It does away with all the advanced features of its big brother, The E3000 and is aimed at average users who want a no nonsense, standard wireless.
The rear contains five Ethernet ports: one for internet access and the rest to support clients on a local area network, but the lack of a Gigabit port and USB is a bit of a downer and I really would have liked for Cisco to have added it in.
No USB or Gigabit port
The E1000 uses WPA/WPA2 encryption with WEP also available to those who adhere to older versions of the Wi-Fi standard. Both security features come with 64 and 128 bit versions.The E1000 also offers a guest network, where guests can log in with a password, but will not be able to access the printer or view the contents of the host's computer.
