Software is critical for protecting your home network from virus attacks, enforcing important parental controls, and preventing identity theft. Unfortunately, one in three consumers experience difficulty setting up their home network, according to an upcoming home networking survey conducted by ABI Research.
Would setup difficulties compromise the trust you have in your home network? Cisco’s Peder Ulander shows the easy to use capabilities of Network Magic in this video.
As of today, all Linksys by Cisco wireless routers come equipped with Network Magic home network management software. Network Magic has a consumer-friendly user interface that provides a network map to easily control multiple devices on your home network. The new interface also adds simplified access to printer and file sharing, an easier process for adding wireless devices, and support for an increased number of devices. To take full advantage of your home network’s capabilities, it is important to feel comfortable with the technology; especially as faster networks emerge and we purchase more devices that create a media-enabled home. Consumer industry analyst Jason Blackwell shared how the home network is changing in a recent Q&A, “We’re seeing a move from data-centric networks — connecting personal computers, laptops and occasionally things like network-attached storage — to home networks that are more media-centric. This brings in a whole new level of connectivity with devices that aren’t typically computer-oriented, such as TVs, set-top boxes and game consoles.” Now that Network Magic is included with Linksys by Cisco routers, access and control of our photos, music, and movies on multiple devices, anywhere, has become much simpler.
