Cisco sell Linksys to Belkin
 
what a sad news

Ugh, that is sad news...but not all that unexpected. Linksys would not even answer SIMPLE questions on their hardware for a review on their router. Needless to say the review was shelved. :/

Honestly, the whole 'cloud' push was what turned me off Linksys this gen....next gen I am going Asus.

Linksys used to be a solid product.... I avoid Belkin like the plague so I guess this is goodbye Linksys

Linksys has gone down the crapper in recent years anyway, not that this will improve it, but now I'm happy I've moved on to D-Link.

Linksys WAS good before they were bought out by Cisco. Cisco realize that they no longer make money on Linksys.. Buh Bye.

I never had much luck with anything Linksys.
So it looks to me that it's going to a company that is right about the same quality of product.
Crap

I had good experience with Linksys over the years but when I bought a Belkin router so much frustration I returned that thing to the store and quickly move back to a newer Linksys router which at that time was already bought by Cisco. This news just worries me cause I always had bad experience with Belkin stuff. It seems my current router will be the last Linksys I will ever own.

Linksys has been off my list now for a few years. I have been having good luck with Netgear stuff.
