Cisco Linksys wins PC Advisor's Best Wireless Networking Product of 2012 award

The best brands and technology of 2012

The Cisco Linksys E4200 dual-band wireless gigabit router is a good-looking device that promises speeds of up to 450Mbps – and, unusually, it all but delivers. A wireless router that requires a separate ADSL or cable modem, it connects to the modem through one gigabit WAN network port, and offers four more gigabit ethernet ports. But it’s the E4200’s wireless capabilities that stand out from the crowd. This is the fastest wireless-n router we’ve come across.

Aboutthe PC Advisor Awards 2012

Our annual roll call of honour considers every piece of hardware and software that has passed through our Test Centre over the past year. We look for innovation and excellence, outstanding performance and value for money.

Only excellent products make the PC Advisor Awards shortlist, and we congratulate all the manufacturers represented on the list. If a product still looks great from the view point of up to a year after its first review, the chances are that it is great.

That does, however, mean that our PC Advisor Awards coverage is not necessarily a buyer’s guide – for that you should visit our Test Centre and Reviews. Some of the products may no longer be available, and in some categories they may have been superseded.

Whittling down the shortlist to pick out individual winners isn’t easy. In all cases arguments could be (and were) made for products other than the eventual winners. But winners there must be.
