Cisco comes out on top again.
These new Cisco E series of routers are going to get a lot of converts from older routers. I was going back & forth whether to get an E2500 or E3200. I replaced a Linksys WRT54GL. I remembered that I did want to move my My Book storage from just on my PC to sharable on my network so I switched to the E3200. The new installation CD was pretty much of a snap. I used the Easy Setup Key on my laptop & it worked fine (direct connect to the E3200 Router). Just had a bit of a problem getting the Easy Setup Key to carry over from the direct connect to the wireless. I disconnected the wired connection & turned on the wireless switch. I had to pop the Easy Setup Key USB device into the USB port & then the wireless setup fine. I'm good for both Wireless & direct connect off the laptop now. By the way, the E3200 picked up my wired printer when I plugged it in the router & it started printing a couple documents that were in the queue while the old router was off line. Couldn't get the External My Book to want to work on the USB External connection. I had a pain with the Western Digital My Book & drivers when I first got it more than a few years ago. Maybe just need more research with Western Digital or the Cisco site.
