As we all know most internet providers supply their own DSL modems (and modem/routers) to their subscribers free of charge most of the time, however how many people care to check just how good that device really is and act on it? Well most people i know really don`t care and thus they remain with the same modem/routers for many years, at least until and if they switch ISP`s (Internet Service Providers) in which case they will most likely use the new model. Certainly something that someone gives you free of charge is always welcome in my book but we all need to know that every ISP out there takes offers from many DSL modem/router manufacturers around the globe and in the end what they care most about is the best offer which unfortunately at the same time usually means lesser quality materials and of course features/performance. Because of that many people (the ones who don`t have cable) choose to either pair a good modem with a good router (for more flexibility and features) or purchase an all in one modem/router device. So today we are taking a rather thorough look at one of the latest routers to hit the market by Linksys a subsidiary of Cisco, the E4200 Maximum Performance Dual-Band N Router."
