So, it’s not going to win any awards for product naming, but Cisco today announced their latest Wireless-N Modem Router, in the form of the (deep breath) Linksys by Cisco Dual Band Wireless-N ADSL2+ Modem Gigabit Router (WAG320N).
The product name pretty much describes what you get for your £89.99, namely a dual-band, Wireless-N, Wi-Fi Internet connection and integrated modem plus 4, high speed Gigabit Ethernet ports. What the product name doesn’t reveal is the ability to make USB storage devices accessible across the network, courtesy of an integrated StorageLink port, which makes all music, video and photos stored on that device accessible to uPnP compatible media players.
Also included is Cisco’s Network Magic software which supports easy setup and configuration of the router along with advanced network diagnostics and troubleshooting support in case of an issue. The router’s power adaptor is Energy Star compliant and Cisco claim a 50% power reduction, at just 2.6W of juice consumed.
