Great router with robust features, although the 5GHz band signal and speed is erratic
(Review updated 06/20/11 to add details concerning firmware version 1.0.02 and USB printer support with the E4200 router. Please see the end of the review for that update.)

I networked my home long before wireless routers were even available (or affordable) for home users, using Ethernet back then and moving to wireless as soon as it was available for home use. Throughout the years, I've almost always used Linksys routers, and the few times I've tried other brands, I was soon sorry and switched back to Linksys. I won't say I've always had perfect experiences with this manufacturer, but my overall experience with them has been very good enough to position Linksys as a name I trust.

When I saw the feature set for the new Cisco-Linksys E4200 router, I was more than intrigued, particularly by the dual-band feature and the potential speeds it boasts.

As it turns out, only one of the wireless adapters I already owned supported the 5 GHz band, and it was the...

Fast router.. wish it was faster
I would say the E4200 router provides a solid connection, roughly the same throughput performance as the NETGEAR N750 450 Mbps Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router WNDR4000 (another 450 Mbps router), easy setup with `Cisco Connect', and the lack of LED lights in the front of the router really helps with the light pollution on the office desk.

Pros:
* Supports 3 data stream (450 Mbps) on the 5 GHz band. The tested throughput on the 5 GHz band was 129 Mbps up and 148 Mbps down (laptop with Intel 6300 wifi card to a server with a wired connection). About 15% faster then my old WNDR3700 router, but I was hoping for a 50% increase (300 Mbps -> 450 Mbps).
* Easy to setup with the `Cisco Connect' application. The application guides you in setting up the wireless security, parental control, and guest network.
* No...

Best out there!!
After having owned many single band routers, it was time to upgrade to a dual band model.

I first tried the Netgear 3700. After using it for about a week, I returned it because of poor transmission speeds and messy firmware.
Thankfully that week, the E4200 was released. As with other linksys routers, installation was a breeze. I use more than 15 networked items in my house. Using the included software to do the setup is very simple and straight-forward. Linksys really got it right with this model.
This router is super fast compared to the netgear 3700. The NAS input for a USB storage devices is about 10 times as fast and the 5ghz band works better in my house on the E4200 than on the 3700.
Range on the 2.4ghz band is great. I can pick up signal on my laptop two houses over. It is nice when you are at a neighbors house and are able to use your own internet connection at a decent signal strength.
The 5gz band is not quite as strong but I was still able to...
