Pros: Available at Walmart.
Nifty networks names.
Cons: When it loses a connection and cannot clean up its own mess, it blames it out the modem. And then recommends a four minute process to 'reset' the connection.
Summary: I returned the first one after 3 days because it lost connection while I was on the internet. The second one had setup problems too, but I was able to get 2PCs (WinXP SP3, wired) and a new Win7 (wireless) laptop connected yesterday.
Then, turn off the PCs, go to bed, go to church, come home, turn on the PCs and Viola! no connection. And who is at fault? The modem, of course. Every time the connection gets lost, the modem lost it. Five times in 30 minutes. The router has the lastest and greatest software, according to the Cisco support page, so it cannot be the cause. But it managed to lose a connection while checking on an update.
And only since I started using this CISCO product have I had problems with my modem. Amazing how that works out. Both routers tattled on the modem.
I will not recommend this E2000 CISCO router to any one I know at work, church or in any other manner of contact, whether social or professional. This unit could not consistently deliver on basic functionality.
I have gone back to my old LINKSYS BEFSR41 that I have had for several years and works fine.
The second router will be returned to Walmart shortly.
I do not plan to buy CISCO products again. I will find another solution provider.
