I wondering whether the Linksys e1200 and/or e1500 offer any kind of Denial of Service (DoS) protection?
I'm currently looking for a new router and would love some info...

Hmmm... Well first of, I'm a rookie when it comes to Routers and the like... I've spent a bit of time lately looking into various routers - what they can do and what they should be able to do.
I don't know which kind - I don't know if I as a private user is much of a target. But I've seen numerous routers and vendors advocate DoS protection. How to protect the router or network from "breaking down" or being compromised when flooded etc. I don't know?
It might all just be marketing but since a lot of other routers have DoS protection in their specs I feel I'm missing something on the E-series... or?

Many thanks for your comprehensive answer.
Much of the DoS protection claims made by various vendors and the like is probably marketing, aimed at people like me, without much router savvyness, trying to sell something I don't need... Hey it even worked - I was comparing routers on claims of DoS protection.
Anyway your input really do makes sense and coincide very well with some other claims I've found just recently in my attempt to learn a bit about what I need...
Guess the E-series is back in the hunt. They do seem to be some nice routers...
