Cisco 4200, has usb ports for printers and Xbox.

If you want a range extender, then try the Netgear WN2000RPT. I have the same and have a lot of issues with it, till I tried this solution.

Since then, excellent connections! I don’t know if it’s really cheap but it should be broadly available…

Cable Modem/Router, I Would suggest Linksys instead of Cisco, just because Cisco Products are very very expensive, and they need a professional knowledge…

Linksys is a Cisco product, Linksys is owned by Cisco. Same router in many occations.

Yes, what is actually the difference? Cisco sells to large clients and Linksys to consumers?!

@MAXAMAS ROX: did you already buy one?
