On March 30, 2010 Cisco unveiled a new series of home networking products called "Valet".[1] The focus of this series is to simplify the installation and configuration of a typical wireless home network by shipping routers partially pre-configured and bundling with them software that aids the user in setting up their network with a step-by-step wizard.

While the early Valet routers are based on variants of Cisco's Linksys routers, the Valet series is not tied to the Linksys brand and is marketed separately.
