Simple to install. Great for home use.
This is an awesome wireless router for a very small price. I already had one at home and ordered this one for the office. It comes with a USB stick that walks you through the set-up. Just plug it in and follow the on screen instructions. Couldn't be simpler. Set-up took 5 minutes and everything worked perfect right out of the box. Easy peasy.

A great all pourpose router id reccomend to anyone
I think the cisco valet is a very underrated router in todays market. I am a highspeed internet sales person (optimum/cablevision) and my car is always full of wireless routers i have purchased for my customers to use. I have used everything from netgear n600 to belkin. Of all the routers i have access to the one in my house is the valet. I have 2 smart phones 2 laptops and a printer connected and it has worked fast, long range, and flawlessly. It was easy to configure with the plug in and go usb key and it is a very stylish, nice looking 300 mbps router. The value for the money cant be beat!!

Cisco-Valet Wireless Router
This is as close to plug and play as a wireless router gets. I was a little apprehensive about purchasing it because there are no product details outside the box. There is also no instruction manual inside but the USB key is prominently displayed. It simply instructs you to plug the USB key into the first computer. An onscreen guide walked me through the set up which consisted of plugging in a few cables. In less than five minutes the Cisco had set up a secure wireless network, a separate guest hotspot and sent me off to insert the USB key in any other computers I wished to connect to the network.
This is the ideal device for the person who just wants their electronics to work and is not interested in details. It is possible to access the configuration screen from the Cisco software or via the IP address but you're paying for the convenience of never having to look under the hood.
At the end of the process they reveal the name of your network and your password but there are no further instructions. I have not had a guest log on but I understand the process is similar to the login at a hotel. They actually have to open their internet browser and enter the password you provide on a welcome screen. A little more detail would have been nice.
The Valet includes 24 hour live tech support which I consider a big plus. The router has various lighted symbols flashing but none of them are marked. I called to find out what they were and had live assistance in less than a minute. The woman was very pleasant but scolded me when I asked about what looks like a power button in the middle. It seems you could lose your set-up if you press the button.
I have purchased many routers and this is by far the quickest and easiest to set up. The connection speed is also very good.Read full review
