Linksys E3000 High Performance Wireless-N Router
The Router lets you access the Internet via a wireless connection or through one of its four switched Gigabit Ethernet ports. With the built‑in Storage Link, you can easily add gigabytes of storage space onto your network using USB 2.0 hard drives, or plug in a USB flash disk to access your portable data files. The E3000’s built-in media server streams music, video and photos from an attached storage device to any UPnP‑compatible media adapter or player. A variety of security features help to protect your data and your privacy while you are online. Security features include Wi‑Fi Protected Access 2 (WPA2) security which provides encryption for data on your wireless network, a Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI) firewall to block unwanted access to your Router, and Network Address Translation (NAT) technology to protect and allow your entire network to access the Internet using a single Internet IP address.
In addition, you can connect computers or devices to this router by giving them local access (Computers and Devices option)or Guest Access (Guest Access option). Computers and Devices with local access will have access to the Internet and to other devices (shared computers andprinters, etc) on your local network, whereas guest Access allows you to provide guests visiting your home with Internet access only.
For more wireless bandwidth, the Router can create two simultaneous yet separate Wireless-N networks (dual-band technology), one using the 5 GHz band and one using the 2.4 GHz band. For example, use the Wireless-N 2.4 GHz network to surf, e-mail, and print while keeping the less crowded, Wireless-N 5 GHz network free for time‑sensitive traffic like music, gaming, and high‑definition video.
Setup and use of the Router is easy using Cisco Connect, the software that is installed when you run the included CD. Advanced configuration of the Router is available through the provided browser‑based utility.
