Cisco Valet: Back-To-School Giveaway

I am always looking for the latest and greatest in technology. This is a great router, but the Cisco Valet is not just any router. It’s a simple to install, easy to use, router and parental online service in one!

My friend Shannon decided to install her Cisco Valet the other evening. I told her don’t do it unless you want your internet to be down for a few hours.   She shocked me.  She  literally had 5 computers up and running in under a half an hour. Thanks to a simple USB Key, the Valet virtually installs itself. You need to just plug it into the computer and it does the work.

The Valet is a new wireless router made just for people who are intimated by the traditional router. The Valet is made by the folks who brought us the Flip video camcorders and it comes from the tech savvy Cisco, a router brand that people know and trust.

Along with its super easy setup, the Valet creates a guest network to go along with your main network. This gives your friends and family the ability to connect to the guest network – without disrupting your network. (Think of when you go into Panera and log on to their network).

The best feature of the The Valet is the parental control software which is perfect for Angry Kid. You can set restrictions blocking certian websites or cutting off Internet access after a certain time on school nights or weekends. After a password is set up, content can be blocked on some or all devices.  Time restrictions on Internet usage can be set up here, with different settings for school nights and weekends. This is a great feature if your child has their own computer.
