Linksys E3200 is one of Ciscoe(TM)s dual-band routers. This means it has a much higher range of 5Ghz compared to 2.4Ghz that is often used by other routers, especially entry-level ones and legacies. This works to its advantage since a dual-band router can reduce interference or data loss, particularly if there are already several devices using the wireless network or if these peripherals require a lot of bandwidth (say, youe(TM)re streaming an HD movie in your player). The router can also be used by small businesses who wish to offer wireless Internet connection to their customers. Moreover, the router has a very fast speed of 600 mbps, thanks to its being dual band and Speed Boost technology. There is also a USB port, where users are now able to share other peripherals within the network, like printers and drivers. Moreover, it is equipped with advanced security feature or settings such as an SPI firewall WPA/WPA2 encryption so confidential data cannot be accessed by unauthorized persons.
