Just as easy as they say,
This review is from: Cisco-Valet Plus Wireless Router (Personal Computers)
I had a very old Airport base station and was having trouble connecting my DirecTv wireless adapter to it. I figured it was time to upgrade. I did a lot of research online and was worried about not being able to set up a new router using my Mac. I bought this router with high hopes of a quick set up. I was not disappointed. I had 2 Macbooks, a Wii, my TiVo DVR and the DirecTv system all working within 15 minutes. So far signal is great throughout my three story home. The router is in the basement and my husband is on the third floor Skyping away. I highy recommend this for anyone that wants a quick and easy setup with little hassles!

I just got this router and it is now connected to two laptops and one tower. I'm running Wondows 7 on one of the laptops, Vista on my tower and XP on my work computer. Took me less than 15 minutes to hook them all up. So easy a caveman could do it.

Why not just spend less on their actual router and get the exact same thing for less money? This seems like a rip off and is completely pointless. They even look the same except for the colors of the exterior. The Cisco Linksys Wireless G and N routers cost less than these... What a marketing gip!

have you used the new router? they are using the new router because of its ease of set up unlike many other routers. I find Valet's attempt brilliant and this is a product much needed in a technological world that can be confusing and complicated for many who discount the minute details of set up. Many consumers want something that just works simply - a plug and play execution.

What's the security level of these routers? Do they have an AOSS button?
In reply to an earlier post on Apr 7, 2010 6:48:28 PM PDT
i think you meant "WPS" button. AOSS button is AirStation One-Touch Secure System by Buffalo. WPS is the official standard (Wi-Fi Protected Setup)

folks - Valet did not change but move CDROM setup to USB and rest are same. To some degree, more complicated.
There is another new one come to the market with very simple Hotspot technologies - SmartHub. Asante... Pretty cool and easy - no need IP address and username management style.. Very easy for me as a housewife. Test it to believe it.

I want to connect a Desktop (Win XP) and a Laptop (Win 7) and download and watch Netflix videos on laptop while husband is using the internet on the desktop. Is this router sufficient for these tasks? Can I get anything less expensive? Please let me
