I was able to get things working once I understood what needed to be done.
Hanko
My WRT610 lasted about 1 year (died 2 weeks after warranty) - replaced with the E4200 - this one died at 2 months.

Of course, in the last week, it's started dropping internet connections every other day or so!

I would say the E4200 router provides a solid connection, roughly the same throughput performance as the NETGEAR N750 450 Mbps Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router WNDR4000 (another 450 Mbps router), easy setup with `Cisco Connect', and the lack of LED lights in the front of the router really helps with the light pollution on the office desk.

Pros:
* Supports 3 data stream (450 Mbps) on the 5 GHz band. The tested throughput on the 5 GHz band was 129 Mbps up and 148 Mbps down (laptop with Intel 6300 wifi card to a server with a wired connection). About 15% faster then my old WNDR3700 router, but I was hoping for a 50% increase (300 Mbps -> 450 Mbps).
* Easy to setup with the `Cisco Connect' application. The application guides you in setting up the wireless security, parental control, and guest network.
* No issues connecting to the router with my PS3, Windows Home Server, Vulkano, and iPad

Con:
* Only 2 data stream (300 Mbps) on the 2.4 GHz band. The tested throughput on the 2.4 GHz band was 60 Mbps up and 70 Mbps down
* No extra features like WDS repeating/bridge
* WNDR4000 has better parental control features

Summary:
Having the E4200 and WNDR4000, the E4200 has roughly the same throughput performance as the WNDR4000 (134 Mbps up and 140 Mbps down on the 5 GHz band). The difference between the two comes down to features. The E4200 has a great setup utility that will allow any newbie to configure the router with ease. The WNDR4000 provides more useful features such as WDS repeating and traffic meter. As for the range of the router, I really can't comment on it due to living in a small apartment.

Format: Electronics Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
(Review updated 06/20/11 to add details concerning firmware version 1.0.02 and USB printer support with the E4200 router. Please see the end of the review for that update.)

I networked my home long before wireless routers were even available (or affordable) for home users, using Ethernet back then and moving to wireless as soon as it was available for home use. Throughout the years, I've almost always used Linksys routers, and the few times I've tried other brands, I was soon sorry and switched back to Linksys. I won't say I've always had perfect experiences with this manufacturer, but my overall experience with them has been very good enough to position Linksys as a name I trust.

When I saw the feature set for the new Cisco-Linksys E4200 router, I was more than intrigued, particularly by the dual-band feature and the potential speeds it boasts.

As it turns out, only one of the wireless adapters I already owned supported the 5 GHz band, and it was the internal NIC on one of my computers. In order to fully test the Linksys E4200, I bought one Cisco-Linksys AE1000 High-Performance Wireless-N Adapter and connected it to each of my computers to test it with the new router.

The dual-band feature by default uses the same SSID for both the 2.4 GHz band and the 5 GHz band. This allows a wireless adapter to seamlessly connect to whichever of those bands it can, but doesn't help if you want to force certain wireless devices to connect using the 5 GHz band, which is potentially faster. Fortunately, you can manually name the two wireless bands with different SSIDs, and simply connect your devices that support 5 GHz bands to the SSID for that band.

After having owned many single band routers, it was time to upgrade to a dual band model.

I first tried the Netgear 3700. After using it for about a week, I returned it because of poor transmission speeds and messy firmware.
Thankfully that week, the E4200 was released. As with other linksys routers, installation was a breeze. I use more than 15 networked items in my house. Using the included software to do the setup is very simple and straight-forward. Linksys really got it right with this model.
This router is super fast compared to the netgear 3700. The NAS input for a USB storage devices is about 10 times as fast and the 5ghz band works better in my house on the E4200 than on the 3700.
Range on the 2.4ghz band is great. I can pick up signal on my laptop two houses over. It is nice when you are at a neighbors house and are able to use your own internet connection at a decent signal strength.
The 5gz band is not quite as strong but I was still able to pick it up one house over. For me, as long as I can sit poolside in the far back portion of my yard and get a strong signal, that is all that matters.
I recommend this router to anyone who is looking to get the most up to date technology in a beautiful package.

Only negative for me is the price point. I think we all have to suffer because of Cisco's huge margin requirements..

The only negative is the price on this one, but I needed something that HAD to be reliable since I was using it on a live streaming job. So the price was not a big issue. I just looked at it as insurance.

Setup was super easy. I love that it sets up a guest network automatically (which you can disable if you don't want it obviously).

I've never seen such fast speed over wireless and the range is awesome.

If it were not so expensive I would buy a few more for the home, but at this price it's going to be part of the streaming system and that alone.

I can't recommend this router enough. I usually use Netgear and love the brand, have used TrendNet with poor results, and have mixed results with LinkSys (which is why I was a bit concerned about buying this since Cisco purchased LinkSys). But I'm very happy.
