Linksys E4200 Review - IPv6 Ready

February 03, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 198

Linksys E4200 is built to the previously popular E3000 series. Some parts of both routers have similarities especially on the dual-bad technology. The next generation in the Linksys' E series is E4200 that features speed boost and Gigabit technologies. The performance of the router is impressive, but some drawbacks on installation made the device accept bad reviews from some customers.

Although the downsides are slightly affecting the performance, consumers can turn these problems to major complains. First, Linksys E4200 has no wall wart; it is such a major mistake from a router promising ease of use feature. Second, there is no visible indicator when you are connected to the Internet and for active ports as well, the only glowing light in the front panel is Cisco logo indicating that the device is turned on. Nevertheless, the software included in the package setups the router automatically. The software separates between main network and guest network if necessary. The ports are labeled to make it easier to connect the wire.

Concerning the performance, Linksys E4200 delivers almost anything that we could ever want from a router. It is not fair to talk about the downsides only; therefore, the next passages on this Linksys E4200 review will discuss the great features that the router offers to us.

One of the most impressive developments is the IPv6 Internet protocol ready. Currently, the IPv4 is widely used by consumers all over the world since IPv6 is still under development. Nevertheless, in the near future IPv6 will be responsible to handle the internet protocol to deliver contents from the network drive to all compatible computers and devices. In other words, almost all contents from the internet will be delivered by the new protocol as soon as it is ready. Unfortunately, most routers in the market are still incompatible at present. The good thing from Linksys is that the company allows users to update the firmware to be compatible with IPv6. On the other side, the router still maintains the capability to work with the IPv4.

Another important feature is concerning QoS prioritization. Linksys is one of few providers who manage to bring quick access to many contents based on QoS implementation to internet protocol. Therefore, users will be able to download almost all contents including videos, online games, TV shows and many others. Even better, since you can directly connect Linksys E4200 to Internet ready TVs, game consoles, and media players, you can enjoy fast audio and video streaming download with minimal buffering required. In short, we can say that Linksys has provided a great router to support the needs of home theater entertainment in high definition quality from the internet for us. With 450 Mbps at premium and 300 Mbps at guest network available, the QoS prioritization seems to be actually useful now.

Ending the discussion, this Linksys E4200 review recommends the router as the device to help you to connect with the Internet at present and for future investment with IPv6 as well.
