Cisco has launched a new range of wireless routers, called Valet, which are designed to make it easier to use wireless routers around the home without the hassle of setting up a home network.
“Valet is home wireless made easy,” said Jonathan Kaplan, senior vice president and general manager of Cisco Consumer Products. “With complementary backgrounds and expertise, our Cisco and Flip teams have combined forces to change the rules for home wireless with a product line that empowers consumers to easily set up, enjoy and manage all of their wireless devices anywhere in their homes.”
The new Valet wireless routers are designed to be easy to setup, and once they are setup they are designed to make it easy to share files to various computers around your house, as well as make it easy to add new devices to your network.
The Valet routers come with an easy setup USB key that is plugged into your USB port on your PC or Mac, and the software does all the rest, and automatically configures everything so you can connect to the Internet and your network via the router.
There will be a couple of routers in the range, the Valet which will retail for $99.99 and the Valet Plus which will retail for $149.99, as well as a kit called the Valet Connector which will let you connect older computers via wireless.Filed Under: Gadgets News, Hardware, Technology News
