We decided to set up a wireless system in our home this Christmas, as just about everyone got a nifty new toy that demanded Internet access. We opted to purchase the Linksys Wireless-N Gigabit Router to enable our WiFi set up.

The Router provides for Internet, Security, email, printing, and several computer connections. The unit is unobtrusive and rather sleek looking. It boasts N speed that allows multiple users to enjoy smoother performance for all the fun stuff everyone likes to do online. This has proved to be true since we have not encountered any lag or issues thus far.

Hooking the Linksys router to our modem was easy using the quick set method. The software provided got the router up and running in a matter of minutes.

Internet security is established through Home Network Defender with SPI firewall protection. The router comes with a 30-day trial to the Home Network Defender. So far, we have not had any issues and everything works seamlessly.

The Linksys Wireless-N Gigabit Router came with software called Network Magic, which allows you to share files and information between the devices you have connected to your network. I have already found this very useful in transferring data, documents, and images to my daughter's new computer from our main computer. I can also see what she has on her computer at any time without entering her room or touching her computer. I do not know if this is how all routers and their software work, but I really like having that type of parental control. Had I known, I would have hooked her up a long time ago.

My husband can use his new iTouch to access the Internet in the house. We have not worked out all the details with range yet, as he cannot take the player out to the garage without losing signal. We think this is a setting issue with the new wireless adapter. Otherwise, the router is perfect for what we need.

We never knew having Internet all over the house could be so easy. Our next step will be hooking up the Blu Ray to gain access to Netflix. We cannot wait to start watching all the latest rentals on our LCD without having to step foot out of the house.

If you are looking to go wireless or set up a network in your home, we think this Linksys Wireless-N Gigabit Router does its job perfectly.
