Pros Easy setup. SBS 2011 find router automaticaly. Good for small office.
Cons I used manual setup (192.168.1.1) and is easy configure to wired or wireless connection w static IP, Small Business Server 2011 w/domain na IP6. Have also guest wireless.
Summary Good router.
Pros Easy set-up
USB works with a printer
Available at BestBuy / FutureShop in stock
Cons High price 150$ (compared to ASUS RT-N56U at 125-135$ witch has more features and speed)
Poor NAS performance as per review (I havn't tested it)
Only one USB port.
Summary I bought the E3200 at BestBuy because I couldn't find any vendor that had the ASUS RT-N56U in stock, all had to order and wait (the E4200 was out of stock at BB). So far I love the E3200, it was so easy to set-up with Cisco Connect! The web interface was also very easy to use and fast.Forgot to mention, my printer is an HP Photosmart C4180 all-in-one. Prints great without having to re-install new print device in WinXP. Haven't tried scanner, probably won't work...
I upgraded the firmware to 1.0.01 on the unit right away to get printer support... and it worked beautifully!
Was planning on getting an external NAS drive anyway, so the "missing" second USB port won't be an issue.

Pros Both 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands have been stable and problem-free the entire time I have owned this router, which has been several months now.
Cons USB hard drive sharing is slow and unreliable
Summary If not for the trouble I encountered trying to connect an external USB hard drive to this router, I would have given it 5 stars. Computer would usually see the hard drive, but sometimes would not read/write to it. Whenever I could get it to read/write, it was very slow. As far as the actual routing performance goes, however, I am very satisfied-- both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands work flawlessly. Router stays on constantly and I have not had to restart the router at all-- signal is very stable.
Pros Sleek appearance
Cons 1. Cannot attach a printer via USB cable to router if using Mac OS X Lion 10.7 or later
2. HORRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE
3. RIDICULOUSLY HORRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE
Summary Router arrived today. CD to setup router did not boot up. Had to set up router manually. After this was complete, still was unable to connect a printer to the router via a USB cable. One of the reasons for buying this router was the USB port which I wanted to connect with my printer. After FOUR HOURS with customer support, Support Desk said "I spoke with my supervisor and this is a known issue that this router does not support attaching a printer via a USB cable if you are using Mac OS X 10.7. It only works if you are using a PC. At this point in time, we do not know when the software for this router will be updated to support this functionality."
I searched the support forums on Cisco Linksys website and there were posts with this same issue back in 2011!!! It is now 2013 and the problem is still not addressed.
She then recommended I return the router to Amazon and suggested I buy a more expensive model from them. I was appalled. In the same breath of telling me that the product I bought does not work as advertised in the documentation and that Cisco has no defined plan to fix this software defect, she actually tried to sell me a more expensive model that she "guaranteed" would work.
Pros kid said the box was pretty
Cons everything about it, died after 9 weeks of usage, warranty terrible told you'd get a refurbished unit when you bought a new one. Amazing that a refurbished unit only has a 90 day warranty while a new one has a yr.
