Cisco Debuts Sleek Linksys E-Series Wireless-N Routers, Makes Geeks Blush

March 31, 2010, By Alex Ion

With all the hype around those 802.11n waves you’ve been hearing as of late, we’re pretty sure you’re going to jump on the bandwagon and get yourself a new router to get the job done around the house, or the office. Well folks, if you’re in the market for a new machine, Cisco have just taken the wraps off their new Linksys E-Series devices for the discerning geek with an eye for sleek designs.

I must agree the new E-Series routers from Linksys are amongst the most beautiful (I know tech and beautiful don’t mix well) we’ve seen. All routers come bundled with new Cisco Connect software, “which gives users tools for easier customization and control of their home wireless experience.”

Translated to English, it has exhaustive parental control for each connected computer, gives visitors password-protected Internet access on a separate guest network, while still allowing advanced users to change settings, the network SSID and password.

The new Linksys E-Series routers lineup include Gigabit Ethernet, UPnP AV Media Server, external storage via USB, Linux, and a few other goodies to get you sold. Speaking of sold, the Linksys E-Series devices are available as you read on Amazon, Staples and, with Best Buy, Target, Wal-Mart and other leading retailers coming soon.

It costs between $80 and $180, depending on the model you choose:

  • Linksys E1000 Wireless-N Router (MSRP: $79.99)
  • Linksys E2000 Advanced Wireless-N Router (MSRP: $119.99)
  • Linksys E2100L Advanced Wireless-N Router with Linux OS: (MSRP: $119.99)
  • Linksys E3000 High-Performance Wireless-N Router (Dual-Band): (MSRP: $179.99)
