I will have to wait... That equipment is still to be released in Portugal. None of the dealers have any notice about it and they even know when they will.

When it hit your shores you'll be a happy network person. Still my IIS Web Server runs much better even faster than the old E4200. Goes you show you Cisco got it right with this model.

Default Interesting

Try different cat cable and see if the problem still persists... I use Cat7 cable personally your router should be perfectly capable of 1GBPS networking so it is likely due to either your cabling or your provider which is giving you issues ...

Side Note to rest of board:
I own 2 Version 1 E4200's and 1 Version 2 E4200 there is not a spot in my home that I do not get full signal... I am curious about putting DDWRT on one of these units but I do not want to spoil the good signal I am currently getting with very little hiccups. I would however love to do it providing it does not hinder performance at all cause I need to block my guests from illegal downloading nothing like getting a letter in the mail cause a friend or family member wants to download some random song it's happened to me before and it was quite a hassle nothing I want to deal with again....

The things that get me the most is these dang phone apps that allow you to download music it is tough to stop this from happening does anyone know of a good way to stop these MP3 download apps from the phones on your network I got a majority of P2P blocked with alternate DNS but still there are songs that sneak through... Of course this is not the best way to block but it does prevent most of the population from being able or willing to try and skirt there way around it. I appreciate the suggestions in advance.

Hey guys,

Just grabbed the e4200 v1 for super cheap.

I noticed that there is now a firmware upgrade that takes care of the WPS security issue. My question is if I should disable WPS on my router or not? Will I still have security measures in place if I do disable it?

Thanks!

WPS just provides an easy way to set up wireless security. If you can do / have done it manually, there is no need for WPS.
