1:49 /

As an all new wireless router from Cisco, the Valet Plus promises a completely new premium experience for home users when it comes to wireless networking.

[ Music ] ^M00:00:00:03 >> Remember the Linksys By Cisco Networking Brand? Well, it's on the way out. Cisco has just released a brand new line of wireless router that carries its name. Hello, my name is Dong Ngo, and this is the all new Cisco Valet Plus wireless router. This is a high-end premium router for home user, and it comes with a very fancy package. Inside you will find the router, cables and an easy setup key. There's no CD or manual. Everything is stored on this key. Just pop it into a computer, PC or Mac, and the sound process will start up to guide you through three simple steps. This key can also be used to add another computer to the network, and contains Cisco Connect software that has managed the home wireless network. The router itself has the same shape as most of the old Linksys By Cisco wireless end routers, but now it's painted in white and gray colors instead of dark blue. It has 4 LAN ports and 1 LAN port on the back. All of them are gigabit. On the front you'll find the usual LED lights that show the status of the ports, the wireless network, and the connection to the Internet, the wireless support wireless and guest networking, allowing for making a separate wireless network for guests. It doesn't, however, support dual band, meaning it works only in a 2.4GH frequency. It doesn't either have a USB port. It holds a printer on network storage. The Cisco Valet Plus is available now for about $150. There's also a more affordable version of it called Cisco Valet that costs $100.
