Cisco Valet Wireless Router Review + Giveaway

As a blogger, I need high speed internet and as a mom, I need a wireless router that I can depend on to allow me carry my laptop around the house with my kids. Even though I'm a blogger, I am not exactly tech savvy and usually count on my husband to set things up for me. I love when I find tech products I can set up myself.

The Cisco Valet Wireless Router is surprisingly simple. Valet features a 3-step set up and even makes setting and managing parental controls to wireless devices simple and flexible.



 Features:
  • Wireless-N Internet access
  • Easy Setup Key included for simple setup
  • Cisco Connect software to manage your home wireless




Valet pretty much does everything on its own.  You simply insert the Easy Setup Key and follow the steps.  The key will save your settings so that connecting to other wireless devices will be easy too.
The Cisco Valet sets up two networks - one for you and one for your family and friends.  You can give them a guest password and they can connect their wireless device without actually accessing your private network.

My kids aren't old enough for the computer yet, but as I mentioned before, I can set different levels of parental controls on different devices.  For example, if they use another computer or gaming device, I could set different controls than what I have on my devices.  You can limit online time, block sites, or even set age appropriate sites. I have a 13 year old sister and am amazed that she has to have access to high speed internet to do much of her homework and other assignments-we had dial up and I rarely used it until college.

I can't even tell you how much I enjoy printing without hooking my laptop to my computer.  I guess I was still living in the stone age because I didn't even know printing without connecting was possible. :)  I can now print my coupons or other documents from anywhere in the house.

I could go on and on about how happy I have been with the Cisco Valet Wireless Router.  Be sure to visit Cisco to learn more about Valet and view their other products.

I like the easy guest access. Its a pain to have to add people to your home system just to let them use the router once or twice.
