The E1000 wireless N router is part of Linksys' rebranding effort replacing the well known WRT router line with the E series. It is the E series' entry level wireless N product replacing the WRT160N (version 3). In truth, the E1000 and WRT160N (version 3) are identical in terms of hardware (subjected to possible future revisions), the real difference is the included Cisco Connect software which is part of the rebranding effort in simplifying the setup process of home wireless networks. The Cisco Connect software also allows for a separate password protected network just for guests, simplified parental controls and advanced network settings. The E1000 offers single band B/G/N wireless with up to 300Mbps speed and 4 10/100 ethernet ports. As with the WRT160N, the E1000 has Wi-Fi protected setup and WPA/WPA2 security settings. The E1000 is a solid option for the everyday user and home office usage as the WRT160N has already proven to be.
