Linksys is a trademark in the network computing world and, although bought and turned into a subsidiary by Belkin in March 2013, one of the most renowned networking hardware company in the world.
Started back in 1988, Linksys has constantly evolved into the brand it is today, from its first products, the printer sharers to it latest top-of-the-class equipment. Acquired by Cisco in 2003, Linksys had already hit the market several times with boosts coming from Microsoft with their launch of Windows 95 and deals with stores such as Best Buy.
Its early successful product line included the world’s first fast ethernet PCMCIA card for laptops as well as the world premiere of the 8-port router featuring technologies such as SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) and QoS (Quality of Service). As years passed and owners changed, Linksys kept its name and reputation.
The E1200 router from Linksys provides you with Wireless-N technology, guest access feature and four 10/100 Mbps ethernet ports. Its design is splendid and packs no external antennas, thus delivering slickness and subtlety at the same time. The Linksys E1200 also comes at a reasonable price and that can make it a top pick for anyone looking for a router with its features that also presents a brand name that everyone heard (good things) of.
While, normally, Linksys would address users with a networking knowledge level of above-average, the brand is suitable for everyone through its solid software accompanying every hardware device. The application included with the E1200 router makes it easier for you to properly install and setup the device even if you are a novice user.
The wizard takes you through each and every step of the whole process starting with the connection of your router’s inserted power cable to an electrical outlet and finishing by having all your devices connected to the Internet, whether to are desktop computers, laptops or mobile devices such as phones and tablets.
The bottomline is that Linksys E1200 software is truly a great piece of work that explains every step of the operation in detail while making sure nothing is left out of the equation. Once you are done, your router is capable of wirelessly connect computers, games and devices to the Internet, give Internet access to guests, manage parental controls as well as test the Internet connection speed. All you have to do is make sure you insert the provided CD before starting the hardware installation.
