What we thought: I am not a huge techie, but I do know that with this router our connection is waaay faster! The E4200 was super easy to install and even I was able to figure it out:) This router has so many cool features! Streaming video is seamless now and I love how effortlessly the router can connect to our TV. A huge plus is the advanced protection to keep wi-fi freeloaders from clogging up our network. One the biggest differences I've noticed is the speed increase on the second floor...I can take my work upstairs now and get a quality connection!!
