Who wants to be limited to working in the back bedroom all day? Cisco’s announced a new router, designed to provide a a wireless network that’s simple to setup in the home.

Cisco is bringing its brand to entry-level networking consumers with a new wireless router product line it’s calling Valet.
The Valet is an effort by Cisco (NASDAQ:CSCO) to mimic the simplicity of its Flip video camera for the needs of home networking users. Flip’s parent company, Pure Digital, was acquired by Cisco last year for $590 million. The Flip targets novice users with simple setup and use, the same features that Cisco is now pitching for home networks with the Valet.
