The Bottom Line The Cisco Linksys E2000 Advanced Wireless-N Router is the fastest router we've seen in both 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands and will definitely make home users happy with its easy-to-use setup software. Advanced users, however, might find its desktop software and Web interface combination a little disjointed. Though far from perfect, the Linksys E2500's ease of use, nice design, and reasonable price make it a very good router for a small home or apartment. With the latest firmware update, the D-Link DIR-655 is arguably one of the best among single-band Wireless-N routers on the market.
