Linksys E2500 wireless router

As it regularly happens with home routers, our trusty Linksys wireless router bit the dust the other day! Still works as a switch, so it will wind up in the storage closet for use in some project or other! Being satisfied with the performance of the previous model, I decided to stick with Linksys/Cisco and picked up a Cisco e2500

This is a dual band 2.4gHz/5.0gHz wireless b/g/n router with four port switch. A proclaimed increase in bandwidth and speed due to the dual band nature of the router has been somewhat true, but I suspect that this has to do with wireless n more than anything else, as our previous Linksys was wireless a/b/g only.

So far, I've noticed that it runs rather warm. Nothing alarming but never a good thing either! The AC adapter has reduced in size, which is something that is always appreciated, as our router is connected to a UPS and several devices have rather large power connectors.

Simple setup and good performance are all I required. If you are in the market for a new wireless router, take a look at the e2500.
